    Default Warcloud aka Holocaust - Midnight in the garden of good

    This being of age old grace, Architect Holocaust
    Moss back, Antediluvian data plate
    Embedded and preserved, expired, current departed
    Lyrics crash across your head, now unzipping your face
    Former antique, kissing crocodiles, flight bound
    Tear open ya flesh like presents and thinner nightgowns
    Toots slow down, you'll never catch Mr. Applebee
    In some flaming town, you'll bury yourself, the greediest
    Death before riches, kingdom of good barbarians
    Circumstances of development leading up to the previous
    'Where The Day Takes You', placed within the sun
    Crush all the village cowards, devour 'til sin is done
    One 'Bag of Bones', children gather, Easter Egg hunt
    Afterwards, fruit bon-bons and safari punch
    Granite hollow planet, 'Period of Adjustment'
    Back to the hanging gardens and lavish buffet lunch
    'Plantation Memories', stone monolith choicebound
    Hoist down the use of human beings a voice sounds;
    "In the prairie fields, the poppies blow
    All the crosses, row and row
    They are the dead, short days ago
    They lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
    The torch be yours, to hold it high
    If ye break faith with us, who dies?
    Loved and were loved, and now they lie
    cuz they didn't live life, from the ground to the sky"

    (Chorus 3X: Holocaust)
    Silver ants and golden beetles crawling throughout my paragraphs
    Father Architect, to peal a lemon and share a drag
    Snow creek lime, draw lyrics that float and colorize
    Butterscotch ladybugs, candy-cane butterflies

    (Holocaust)
    In-line skates in a pillowcase, swinging at ya face
    The sound or a combination of sounds or it's representation
    In writing or printing, the text of a vocal theme
    Salamander slithers into a stream where glitter fiends
    Calm unique, cinema fantastique, the true castle
    We build the new chapels, still bobbing for blue apples
    Tackled and shackle, recycling wordage and best font
    Eat off Titanic artifacts on a waterfront restaurant
    World War 3, entrées, picketing crept wit me
    Aqua-taxi verbalism torch, ticketed separately
    Ice laid in waters, all thrilled to the heroics
    Hair pin twists and turns, bottles exploded
    Tomorrow land, news flash, Baskin-Robbins and Häagen-Dazs
    Lens Crafter articles cleansing open ya noggin flaws
    Views of marine life, mystifyingly true
    Harvest scores of curiosities, just arriving see-through
    Flew first class, ideal baby pandas, koalas
    Gold rich Pina Coladas and experience my Katana
    Those Mephistopheles, Beelzebub, Lucifierian lifestyle
    Black mambo, king snake, desert gecko, the cowardly
    Waffle shoe club foot, Polly slobbing for penny
    Dirty six-legged pigs from New Guinea, Eric get many
    For the jealous always tell us that the enemy envies hatred
    And the deceitful lust greed, it shed off infinity facelifts
    Takes one to know, land mammals return to sea
    and the water turns to blood, chew cotton candy with glee

    (Chorus 2X)

    (Holocaust)
    'Hang 'em High', dripping, overlooking the rolling vineyards
    Sunset Stroll, hand-picked the green raisins
    Rocky mountain strawberries, leisure suit for the tastebuds
    My speech rinses flesh from the fossils of seen occasions
    Seem patient, wasting timeless now, slim-fitted crewmen
    The insects and the creatures tell riddles of dim-witted humans
    One man aircraft carrier, personnel
    No drinking during the sermon, extinguish the serpent's Hell
    What mockery have thee traded for thy precious soul?
    The voice be it starfruit or dragon fruit, re-evaluate choice
    Merry-go-rounds, monkey bars, neck climbs and curvy slides
    Balance beams and hide-aways, all examined my thirty rhymes
    Interactive play areas, reservations required
    Free wheelchair strollers and lockers for aiming higher
    Plus elite catering, remarkable tasting menu
    and every dollar that you spend enables it to continue
    Never will concede, just work hard, determined
    Either/or suburban or urban, Italian, German
    Spanish, French, African, Oriental and Russian
    Samoan Irish bagpipes wrestle with the percussion
    Party hats, balloons and crazy string, confetti
    Open field exhibit Caravans, lyrical Serengeti
    Over night camping trip, foes will disappear
    Heavy paragraphs, clear and truthfully engineered

    let us not try to understand what God is trying to say, but accept that he resides in a higher realm from us mortals and give thanks

    He's my take....

    "'Plantation Memories', stone monolith choicebound
    Hoist down the use of human beings a voice sounds"


    "Plantation Memories" is a book reference about racism
    The "Stone Monolith" could mean, comparing with the Plantation's....
    What human's make or do to the earth ?
    "Choicebound" ? you're bound to make a choice.

    "Hoist down the use of human beings a voice sounds"

    I belive this ties with the Plantation reference
    In that the "Use" of human beings has been lowered : Slaves
    "A Voice Sounds" I think means the songs the slaves used to sing while working.

    "Aqua-taxi verbalism tours, ticketed separately
    Ice laid in waters, all thrilled to the heroics"


    I heard this song when I was at school
    It was the first Holocaust track I ever heard.
    And I've always heard him say :

    "Aqua-Taxi Verbalism Tours : Ticketed Seperately"

    I belive he is saying when he's rhyming he can walk on water & transport you
    The next line "Ice Laid In Waters, All Thrilled To The Heroics"
    Could mean that he's not walking on water....simply walking on Ice
    However everyone is still thrilled by his heroics ?
    At the same time it could be that he is the Ice simply floating.
    Or that his tongue is the taxi....Who knows ?

    Not a clue what the 1st line means
    But the 2nd "Tomorrow Land" could be a Disney Theme Park reference
    "News Flash : Baskin-Robins & Häagen-Dazs" -
    As in get your ice-cream you need to see this :
    "Lenscrafter Articles Cleansling" repairing your sight
    "Open Ya Noggin Flaws" could mean the noggins in support of a structure....
    Say a rollercoaster or someting ? haha

    -

    I don't know man, it's all open to interpritation....
    And I may be reaching with the 2nd set of lines you questioned
    As that is some serious abstract matter right there.
    But thats what I get from it.

    He's a genius with hidden messages
    It's like at times sections of his verses are a jigsaw puzzle.
    You could do this with any Architect/Warcloud/Alcatraz/Robot Tank verse
    It's if you are willing to or like Mumm-Ra said just leave it be.

    I'm open to hear anyone else's view on any of the verses
    As this is a monstrosity of a song....way way before his time on this.
    I've often wondered if this was the first track he ever did ?
