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.

Track Name: Overactive Imagination
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
Track Name: In Human Form
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]
Track Name: Jealousy
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
Track Name: Trapped In A Corner
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
Track Name: Nothing Is Everything
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.
Track Name: Mentally Blind
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.
Track Name: Individual Thought Patterns
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
Track Name: Destiny
[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]
Track Name: Out Of Touch
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
Track Name: The Philosopher
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
Track Name: Leprosy - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Suicide Machine - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Living Monstrosity - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Overactive Imagination - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Flattening Of Emotions - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Within The Mind - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: In Human Form - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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,

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.

[Lead: Andy]
Track Name: Lack Of Comprehension - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Trapped In A Corner - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
Track Name: Zombie Ritual - Live In Germany - April 13th, 1993
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
