Townsend, Devin - Planet Of The Apes Lyrics




I know who I am today
But who knows?
To forgive the lord... you don't damn family
All I ever wanted was to be true for my wife and my kid
And I will never back down, and I release the pain

I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god
I say have it your way

And pay!

Oh the mind goes!

And I've had to reassess the ways of the mind
And I will never back down, for you are my children's family
And I know what's inside that power
Have I forgiven the pain?

Forgive yourself!

I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god
I say have it your way

Pay! No?

Sorrow man
Sorrow man
Sorrow man

I know the ways to love and truth
(Tungsten body, glowing mind)
And I realize they're coming through
(Tungsten body, glowing mind)
I know the way to love and truth my god... stay with me!

Sorrow man
Sorrow man
Sorrow man

(While we all have lots of bands who influence still... we all rip off Meshuggah!)

Well was I aware that I was more uplifted by the enkindled smiling of the stars
So I cannot find myself worthy

Covered with scent vile they seem to be side by side, animals in a row

I never (get your money's worth)
Pay pay
I never know (get your money's worth)
Pay now
I do not agree existentially

I know father, I know father... I know... I know
I know father, I know father... I know... I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, all about the blood!

Yeah! I let go, I let go my prehistoric mensa!

I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god
I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god
I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god
I say have it your way
I stay heavy for my god

Worlds away, sun it glows
Hearts fade to grey, summer shows
Worlds away, sun it glows
Hearts fade to grey, summer shows

Way of ways, and in a way I'm heading towards the sky!
We never will die, we never know why
Just never look back now, and I'll be happy until!
Oh! Everybody will know, I am so happy now!
I've got a little boner!

Stay in line, in line we stay!
Stray from the norm and never be heard!
Always above, always alone!
Reaffirm:
This is the planet of the apes!

(Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus)

Show ourselves the beauty of our ways
Then maybe we would last

Hey!
Are we observing? Are we the observed?
Are we deserving... Or are we deserved?
If what we owe is all we know!
Then ever in the presence of events that change us all... And then are gone
If they know, what we may never know... Then let this be the lesson of our ways!

(Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus, Jihad. Jesus)

Please don't cry to me, 'cause what you believe is the cause of your own demise
You need to be free in money and the worlds between us! Your words, THEY SAY THIS!
Under the pleasant lines!

I'm sorry baby, I'm sworn to miles and miles of love
I'm sorry baby, I'm sworn to miles and miles of love
I'm sorry baby
Baby
Miles and miles of love!

One is all connected, tungsten body glowing mind!
One collective!
Wild desire!

All the world's been waiting for the news!

Save me your heart!

We must trust in ourselves my friends!

One is all connected! Tungsten body glowing mind!

(One is all, collective)
(One is all, collective)
(One is all, collective)
(One is all, collective)
(One is all, collective)

  1. Manuel

    My man Tommy Giles Rogers featured on this song! What a great duo.

  2. LRed13

    This song is the definition of "overbuilt" and i love it.

  3. Brombit

    Damn, I didn't notice 3:32 before someone mentioned it! :D

  4. Jy-Joe Bonis

    Speed x1.25. Do it.

    WarChallenger

    Never would have thought to do that for this song, but I'm glad you suggested this! I usually do that for fast paced rock songs for the purpose of driving games.

    William Weller

    This is great because break is almost done!!!

  5. Recneps Hutchens

    7:48 boom!

  6. Daniel Nopper

    Larks Tongues influence in the beginnig.

  7. Jacob

    I still can't get over that orchestral part at 8:24, I've probably replayed that a million times since I bought the album.

    nxcturnal /nxs

    Chills when i hear that part

    Bjorn Lakenstrazen

    the first time I saw DTP, they played this and that part was so epic

  8. Marabunta

    Well, all rip off meshuggah...

  9. Gabriel Bisaccio

    At 5:40 starts the part that keeps me coming back to this song through the years

    Dark-Emissary

    My favourite thing about Devin's music in general, is the use of his juxtapositioning. The stark musical contrasts presents the duality of his music really well, and in turn emphasises both sides of the proverbial coin.
    The heavy parts become heavier because they are followed by lighter passages, and vice versa.
    This particular instance is a very good example of that. :)

  10. Screamer1998

    (While we all have lots of bands who influence still…we all rip off Meshuggah!)

  11. Cool Of Borg

    3:32 lolol

  12. Eizzah
