Veganhead I've loved Omnia Opera since first seeing them back in the 80's at The Campbell in Coventry. Saw them many, many times. If you like earlier Omnia Opera you won't be disappointed with this album,it's excellent. The title track rocks. Favourite track? All of it :D Favorite track: Nothing is Ordinary.

But there is another unknown state of being beyond this realm - an eternal un-manifest - which when all creatures are destroyed, is not itself destroyed. I radiate, I withhold the rain and I let it come down. I am immortality and death, I am the existent and the non-existent. You are the imperishable being, non being and what is beyond. I am death that bears everything away and the source of what is yet to be. Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds

Pristine psyche - lets go for the burn Set, primed and loaded Head bend melt down Shedding, shedding a second skin Gratification, slow inhalation, relax, relax Drip feed TV screen Don’t get above your station Streamline halo remember you’re not just flesh and bone Gratification, slow inhalation, relax, relax, relax, relax, and unfold. Habitual creatures are we adorning ourselves within life’s tapestry Senses thirsting , seeking the elusive good time Falling prey to words, each to their own our tastebuds scream In delight and disgust We’re all red under the skin as the knife goes in We’re all red under the skin as the knife goes in Close shave, close call, scrape through forewarned, Drip fed, play dead, overtake, give head. Release, untie, unlock, were all still here but I don’t know why, I don’t know why

The genus of angels in this vast ocean of limitless life Together we are here in this past-less, future-less present A new name which no one knows Underneath the surface, underneath the surface There is no distinction, drink the soul vine, drink the soul vine Tunnel vision, tunnel vision, what’s that I can’t see I’ve become nothing and everything Science and your sister, science and your sister
4.
We are sometimes rising, we are sometimes falling, we are truly drawn to equal distance Transfigure the deeper realm of your life, allow yourself to fully manifest Discover what you can share with the world, joyfully spinning in the vortex of life Nature and humanity rise as one, the infinite potential of a human being The flowering tide of pleasure and temptation Leave no stone unturned beneath your feet and the imprints you leave Fleeing this tempestuous sea, the foolishness of earthly greed The countless numbers we perceive in which we have ever been Crushed down the affection, burning the daylight slumber unfold yourself into the deep, returning to the unity To feel the sun on my skin, a place to lose yourself in A coming into being Nothing is ordinary Human being, being human human being, being human

Supernova in my head, brain explosion am I dead Can I take it anymore, overdosed without a score Blow my mind control my vision Smash my senses to high heaven What is happening to my shell Wondrous feelings within me dwell Nebula visions are what I see, clustered stars engulfing me In the void of space I am, binary system I’ll become Take the world within your hand Spin it all around and round Until the moon collides with us Everything blows in the dust

Panic, panic, panic…. The holes are getting bigger..... The holes are getting bigger and the ship is going down Surrender to the promise of the pleasure that we’ve found. Worshipping the chime of time leads to an empty soul The reverse of the universe has just begun….. let’s go Panic, panic, panic, panic. We are growing younger now my father is my son My mother is my daughter there is nowhere left to run Mistakes we see before us are already left behind This is the new beginning that the mother helped us find, yeah! Panic! Hey! You! Come ‘ere! Flying through the holes in the underground sky We see the purple swans eating sounds with their hungry eyes. The absolute beginning is falling from on high And every time you raise your thoughts you’re tuning in with us.

Saw a picture on the news of a cretin with a stick Several creatures by his shoes made me feel rather sick, very sick, sick, sick Limbless on the land at the mercy of your hand Never hearing the wood crash as your grubby mitts grab the cash To those men who kill and peel, I’d like to tell you how that feels If I had a machine gun Boy I’d make you fucking run, oh yeah! Saw a picture, on the news some disaster floods the room Send some cash, send some food but what else can I do? I look away… Saw a picture, on the news The enemy inside the room Spreading fear, spreading rules Spread the myth, are we fools

You see the sun arise I see the stars in the sky Now I’ve sat down and thought it all out There is no reason why I should doubt Life’s an illusion I can see just a creation within me Take the day from the dream Is it as real as it seems? As it seems... I see a light in the sky It’s not a vision it’s in my mind Now I’ve sat down and thought it all out There is no reason why I should doubt This dream will go on endlessly Into the future it’s taking me Carried away by a dream Is it real, or is it me.... It’s…not…a vision…it’s in my mind. Just a creation, within me just a creation, life’s an illusion within me, just a creation As it seems, just a creation

Mr Sludge has got a party to day Down in his parlour he’s floating away A man of the cloth is there for the ride Where’s Mr Sludge? He’s floating outside… And he’s floating down the road He’s floating outside floating down the road Levitation’s arrived floating down the road Impossible to divine floating down the road Gravity’s on the line From world to world and sun to sun Ten dreams one hundred years long The laws of gravity and combustion Fly out of the window when Sludge comes along! Back there in eighteen seventy three There was a buzz around society The place to be was Sludge’s abode Creation, formation he had it in loads The maverick with a levitation key Transpersonal sublimity With metaphysical alchemy What is this concealed mystery? Every word a number and every number a word Transgressional sublimation Trans-serial isolation Metaphysical one stop station Metaphysical levitation

Are we all locked into the GPS field? Big brother is watching you, and every move you make… Remember how it used to be? Before they killed your family… You used to walk out in the wild. I can see you With my electronic eye I can hear you Radio scanners everywhere I can read you With my telepathic mind I can make you Press the button with a smile Tomorrow’s the same as yesterday, Next year’s the same as a year ago, Stay like this for infinity… I can scan you Biometric infiltration I can own you Government computer system I can tag you Double helix data stream I can coerce you Through your television screen Remember how it used to be? Before they killed your family… You used to walk out in the wild. I can track you With a stratospheric stare I can sense you Orbiting in the air I can find you Enter your 4 digit pin I can detain you On a momentary whim Big brother is watching me and you, Everything that we see and do, Embedded within society, Lasting dread for all that will be. Diversion, immersion, perversion, diversion. There’s nothing to see here – move along. The road ahead is blocked – you are wrong. You are on camera – you are on screen. Big brother is watching you – this is no dream. I can scan you Biometric infiltration I can own you Swear allegiance to the queen I can tag you Double helix data stream I can coerce you through your television screen I can track you With a stratospheric stare I can sense you Orbiting in the air I can find you Enter your four digit pin I can detain you On a momentary whim I can see you I am no longer blind I can hear you Like a song on the wind I can read you Like a book or magazine I can make you The eternal offering Diversion, immersion, perversion, diversion. I can see you With my electronic eye I can hear you Radio scanners everywhere I can read you With my telepathic mind I can make you Press the button with a smile All of us are flickering flames, all of you are flickering flames. The flickering flames, sparks and sparks from 320 directions… Press the button with a smile...

Dreary world of death and taxes Take the world reduce it to ashes Why live for tomorrow when today is not yet done Throw it away - don’t let the white wash run. A generation left to carry the can Stagnation falls from your mouth Mr Political Man In the name of consumption In the name of devastation In the name of the blame free man In the name of Uncle Sam In your belief system, with break down assistance A path of least resistance Laugh myself to death While I’m running out of breath Finding no recourse Break the speed limit, break the greed limit... Systematically falling apart Systematically falling apart Unconditionally living a lie Passionately living a lie Violently tear it apart Despairingly praying to die Consistently dragging me down Endlessly, Endlessly, Endlessly, Endlessly Under the sun, invisible light All your life, passes so soon I pray for release... Addicted to your pain, a sense of self defined With no solid ground beneath your feet, enter the sublime. Mourn the self you thought we were from the dawning light within The ecstatic moments of this life, the mundane world reveals its light The miracle of being, we are what we seek, and the many wheels we ride Do you have enough, always wanting more, where is the exit sign? Leave behind your illusions, the sure heart’s release, the sure heart’s release Forsake it now, forsake it now Playing with the wind, stepping out of time Transmissions you receive, the land beyond the mind Under the sun, invisible light All your life, passes so soon I pray for release...

This album is the first new CD release from Omnia Opera since 1997, accordingly we've made it a monster double CD packed full of plasma as you should expect from your favourite sonic reprobates. This album will feed your mind, body and soul to make up for this long and unforgiveable wait - enough new Omnia Opera to keep you satiated for a good while to come. Long live the plasma!
