1.
Your existence is a script, life for you is a performance, play out the leading role. Directing and premeditating every move That creates the act of manipulation Mastering the art of deception. That increases your sick addiction It's an overactive imagination that enslaves your empty shell [Lead: Chuck] Existing in dimensions of addictive obsession [Lead: Andy] Your script will run short of ideas The story will soon end itself People to trust come short in number. Like a plague your lies spread fast across the world Mastering the art of deception That increases your sick addition It's an overactive imagination that enslaves your empty shell
2.
People of the earth beware, It is here in human form An atrocity laced with greed. Filled with evil intentions. Ready to attack [Lead: Andy] Look to the air for stories to choose, Who will be your next victim Profiting on visions of others, dark emotions run through its veins Its motives are false its mind is insane A distant planet with no signs of life To become a home for this alien breed. Scientists of the world unite, your services are more than needed This creature in human form is out of control [Lead: Chuck] Looks can be deceiving, see beyond the shell Flesh and eyes mean nothing. The truth, time it will tell Before you think you fool the world. What comes around goes around. Shown for what you are, a waste of life [Lead: Andy]
3.
Jealousy 03:41
What do you want from me, what is it you expect I have spoken my mind from deep inside my soul Behind the eyes is a place on one will be able to touch Containing thoughts that cannot be taken away or replaced You want what is not yours, Jealousy You want what you cannot have, Jealousy Spiteful harsh words, it comes as no real surprise. Tell me what you are. [Lead: Chuck, Andy] I cannot understand how you seem to exist On what people create for you, good must turn bad. Behind the eyes is a place on one will be able to touch Containing thoughts that cannot be taken away or replaced You want what is not yours, Jealousy You want what you cannot have, Jealousy
4.
I want to watch you drown in your lies. The end of your masquerade, a matter of time Intertwining lies, domination, control Feed his twisted nature It is sickening to see dreams die A word of advice, fate's patience is growing short. Fake down to your mind and appearance You will fall short of the dreams to destroy In time you will find yourself trapped in a corner These four words my friend, I promise you will not forget [Lead: Andy, Chuck] I am one of many that see through your lies Hiding will do you no good, many seek revenge. Soon to become a victim of what you live to create, and cannot have. It is sickening to see dreams die A word of advice, fate's patience is growing short. Fake down to your mind and appearance You will fall short of the dreams to destroy
5.
Living like us and sharing our day. In another world very far away A different existence, yet virtually the same. Aggression is sadness and laughter is pain Look deep into their eyes for what they have to say Emotions take control of life everyday. Unpredictable variations of behavior, Hold the key to the mental door Where nothing is everything, and everything is nothing Staring beyond the wall a thousand times over [Lead: Chuck] Seeing a part of them that is real Just imagine how it might feel To be denied of what life has to give Behind mental shadows they must live Look deep into their eyes for what they have to say Emotions take control of life everyday.
6.
You see your vision and no one else's Your every word filled with sarcasm Crucify people with invisible knowledge Verbal destruction with each compulsion We will see where you go The future for you is nowhere Every minute a cliche of your kind Too much to say from a person with no respect Your accusations you will regret From the mentally blind come ideas that are poison Take away the power, a shallow person you will find. [Lead: Chuck] What would you do without your pathetic narrow-minded approach to life, that reflects your lack of abilities Your opinions are self-destructive Despair is your gain, delight is corruption Destined to fall prey to your stories, creating problems for your consumption We will see where you go The future for you is nowhere Every minute a cliche of your kind Too much to say from a person with no respect Your accusations you will regret From the mentally blind come ideas that are poison Take away the power, a shallow person you will find.
7.
So quick to judge, so easily we forget, What it's like to be dissected Where feelings are tossed aside Like a drug it feeds the imagination of minds that go unanalyzed Followers to the leaders of mass hypnotic corruption that live their lives only to criticize Where is the invisible line that we must draw to create individual thought patterns [Lead: Chuck] Prisoners of mental deception be free within singular judgement Twisting words to control the masses To cover up one's self insecurities Like a drug it feeds the imagination of minds that go unanalyzed Followers to the leaders of mass hypnotic corruption that live their lives only to criticize Where is the invisible line that we must draw to create individual thought
8.
Destiny 04:06
[Lead: Andy] Time is a thing we must accept The unexpected I sometimes fear. Just when I feel there's no excuse for what happens, Things fall into place I know there is no way to avoid the pain that we must go through to find the other half that is true Destiny is what we all seek Destiny was waiting for you and me [Lead: Chuck] I believe behind confusion awaits the truth for us Past the obstacles we face I value our life and trust Years of questioning why things happen the way they do in life Wishing that I could turn back time, So we could join our souls I know there is no way to avoid the pain that we must go through to find the other half that is true Destiny is what we all seek Destiny was waiting for you and me [Lead: Chuck]
9.
Out Of Touch 04:22
Trapped in a lost world of brutality So weak are the ones that must rely on shock to push this so called force that inspires their call to be extreme so it seems is a mental crutch To cover up for those that are completely out of touch Say what you want, I know the truth when it comes to your kind [Lead: Chuck] In time we'll see who lasts In time you will disappear Who are you to question my sincerity For now you are high on yourself Drowning in your dreams of misguided hope To be extreme so it seems is a mental crutch To cover up for those that are completely out of touch
10.
Do you feel what I feel, see what I see, hear what I hear There is a line you must draw between your dream world and reality Do you live my life or share the breath I breathe Lies feed your judgement of others Behold how the blind lead each other The philosopher You know so much about nothing at all [Lead: Chuck] Ideas that fall under shadows of theories that stand tall Thoughts that grow narrow upon being verbally released Your mind is not your own, what sounds more mentally stimulating is how you make your choice So you preach about how I'm supposed to be, yet you don't you know your own sexuality Lies feed your judgement of others Behold how the blind lead each other The philosopher You know so much about nothing at all
11.
Bodies deformed way beyond belief Cast out from their concerned society Flesh contorting day after day Freak of the dark world is what the people say Their lives decay before their eyes There is no hope of cure Among their own kind they live A life that's so obscure First an arm and then a leg Deterioration grows Rotting while they breathe - Death comes slow Leprosy will take control and bring you to your death No chance of a normal life to live just like the rest Leprosy will spread with time, your body soon to change Appearance becomes hideous a sight too much to take Tuberculoid the most severe Decay of the nerves comes fast Sense of feeling soon to be gone Life will never last No hope of recovery after the nerves are eaten away Damage is done you feel no more pain Bones decay deterioration grows Origin of this horrid disease nobody knows Their lives decay before their eyes There is no hope of cure Among their own kind they live A life that's so obscure First an arm and then a leg Deterioration grows Rotting while they breathe - Death comes slow Leprosy will take control and bring you to your death No chance of a normal life to live just like the rest Leprosy will spread with time, your body soon to change Appearance becomes hideous a sight too much to take
12.
Controlling their lives Deciding when and how they will die A victim of someone else's choice The ones who suffer have no voice Manipulating destiny When it comes to living, no one seems to care But when it comes to wanting out Those with power, will be there Prolong the pain How long will it last? Suicide machine A request to die with dignity Is that too much to ask? Suicide machine How easy it is to deny the pain Of someone else's suffering [Solos: Schuldiner, Masvidal] Robbed of natural abilities In death they now seek tranquility In a confused state of mind Extending agony, they must be blind Manipulating destiny When it comes to living, no one seems to care But when it comes to wanting out Those with power, will be there Prolong the pain How long will it last? Suicide machine A request to die with dignity Is that too much to ask? Suicide machine
13.
Every day blows by in a world of corrupt addiction With life comes pain withdrawals and deformation Breaking the mould human appearance Contorting bodies with chamical interference The guilty one, innocent she now cries A life of hell, better off to die Born without eyes, hands, and a half a brain Being born addicted to cocaine Living monstrosity A freak for life they'll always be Never knowing love or hate Only pain the drug creates [Solos: Murphy, Shuldiner] Some say she's naive, she's a stupid bitch Some say to forgive, guilty she should die The beginning of the end begins at birth Breeding masses of twisted screaming flesh An example we should make out of theses creators of misfortune A serious crime that should not be forgiven The guilty one, innocent she now cries A life of hell, better off to die Born without eyes, hands, and a half a brain Being born addicted to cocaine
14.
Your existence is a script, life for you is a perfomance, play out the leading role. Directing and premeditating every move That creates the act of manipulation Mastering the art of deception. That increases your sick addiction It's an overactive imagination that enslaves your empty shell [Lead: Chuck] Existing in dimensions of addictive obsession [Lead: Andy] Your script will run short of ideas The story will soon end itself People to trust come short in number. Like a plague your lies spread fast across the world Mastering the art of deception That increases your sick addition It's an overactive imagination that enslaves your empty shell
15.
Where is the person that could have been Who, what took over, when did the end begin Should we not prepare for the uncertain Mysteries of our life, of our destiny See things that are not there Intruding voices What went wrong to their picture perfect life They once knew - Flattening of emotions [Solos: Schuldiner, Masvidal] A mind shared by an uninvited stranger Which comes and goes as choose to appear Should we not prepare for the uncertain Mysteries of our life, of our destiny See things that are not there Intruding voices What went wrong to their picture perfect life They once knew - Flattening of emotions
16.
Transforming your mind from the inside out Overcoming fear that made you doubt Observing what is stored in the subconscious Trusting what you feel with your gut responses See past the dark and use your energy Learn from these images Thoughts that we call dreams This power lies within the mind Gain wisdom through abilities Change what's to come in future time Avoiding pain and misery [Solo: Murphy] Look through the fake from what is real Making desicions by what you feel Live for the future and not the past The weak of mind will never last Perceiving visions that reoccur Analyse your dreams to gain A better perspective of your life In control of your destiny with mind and soul [Solo: Shuldiner] See past the dark and use your energy Learn from these images Thoughts that we call dreams This power lies within the mind Gain wisdom through abilities Change what's to come in future time Avoiding pain and misery
17.
People of the earth beware, It is here in human form An atrocity laced with greed. Filled with evil intentions.

The truth, time it will tell Before you think you fool the world. What comes around goes around. Shown for what you are, a waste of life [Lead: Andy]
18.
A condeming fear strikes down Things they cannot understand An excuse to cover up weaknesses that lie within Lies Laying your guilt and pain On people that had no part in the molding of a life That creates its destruction Lies Right before your very eyes A reflection of the mistakes To the end you will deny Your part in the demise of a life Lack of comprehension Thriving on your cliche Compelled by self-resentment [Solo: Schuldiner] Reaching into the minds of those that created The depression in which they In which they drowned their flesh and blood Lies So easy to blame the Everlasting fear on a pathetic attempt To justify the ending of life Lies Right before your very eyes A reflection of the mistakes To the end you will deny Your part in the demise of a life Lack of comprehension Thriving on your cliche Compelled by self-resentment

20.
Revengeful corpse out to kill Smell the stench, your guts will spill Vomit for a mind, maggots for a cock With his axe the corpse will chop Stare into his eyes Now in his spell Kiss the rotting flesh Now you're in hell Drink from the goblet, the goblet of gore Taste the zombie's drug, now you want more Drifting from the living, joining with the dead Zombie dwelling maggots, now infest your head Zombie ritual Zombie ritual Ceremony now complete Chosen one is now deceased Fucking, raping zombie whores Killing, feasting no remorse Stare into his eyes Now in his spell Kiss the rotting flesh Now you're in hell Drink from the goblet, the goblet of gore Taste the zombie's drug, now you want more Drifting from the living, joining with the dead Zombie dwelling maggots, now infest your head Zombie ritual Zombie ritual Zombie ritual Zombie ritual

about

DEATH, the heavy metal institution founded, realized, and helmed by legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released the Individual Thought Patterns album (the follow-up to their watershed Human release) in 1993. Expectations were high following Human, but Schuldiner proved once again that he could rise to any occasion. Individual Thought Patterns further honed the forward-thinking and progressive direction birthed with Human, and included “The Philosopher”; arguably the best song to ever come from the world of extreme metal and to this date the most widely-recognized.

Remixed by DEATH mastering engineer Alan Douches (West West Side), remastered, repackaged and featuring tons of newly unearthed and previously unreleased demo and live tracks, this is the ultimate version of Individual Thought Patterns.
