DO you guys remember how that one guy analyzed eunuch... lets do the same thing..
Son et lumiere
The track really seems to slither in but also have a storm like quality which I like
alot of times with cedrics lyrics he uses imagery depicting the art of julio venegas, that is used as the background for the song..
Clipside of the pinkeye flight I'm not the percent you think survives I need sanctuary in the pages of this book Gestating with all the other rats Nurse said that my skin will need a graft I am of pockmarked shapes The vermin you need to loathe
^ now that verse i interpret as establishing the character of Cerpintaxt
Not sure what the phrase
Clipside of the pink eyed flight is telling me.. or describing to me
"I'm not the percent you think survives" probably means in life
"I need sanctuary in the pages of this book" means he's well read
"Gestating with all the other rats" i'm thinking he means like to be raised.. or developing, growing..
skin need a graft could quite possibly reference to skin graft records.. or not at all.. gotta keep in mind ced and omar = music geeks
skin graft is one of those cedric sayings
the last line is like i am an ugly person you should dislike kinda feel..

from what Ive read, pink eye is really really easy to pass on to other people, like all you have to do is stand next to them if they have it, and then you have it.
but then theres a red eye flight, I guess thats when you take an airplane at the crack of dawn.
Son Et Lumiere being the intro song, to me is also the intro into the whole story of course. "I need sanctuary in the pages of this book" he is writing/narrating/telling/living this story....and its his manner of getting away from his life
"skin graft is one of those cedric sayings" Diego, youre nuts.
skin graft n. A surgical graft of healthy skin from one part of the body to another or from one individual to another in order to replace damaged or lost skin.
he has obviously mutilated himself, in medical care and stuff. but he would rather live the way he wants to instead of obeying and following everyone elses orders/rules/thoughts

"clipside of a pink eyed flight" possibly the outcome of a drug overdose the bad side of a blood shot eyed high...in other words..even though it sounds odd
"im not the percent you think survives" he thinks he's inferior, not part of society as a whole.
"i am of pock marked shapes" inhumanity, deformity
"nurse said that my skin will need a graft" i agree with pattern against loser he views himself as vermin, but would rather be ugly than accept perfection or any means of surgical rehabilitation, aka suicidal?
"gestating with all the other rats" "the vermon you need to loath" constant references to rats and what have you on the album an obvious indicator of how low cerpain taxt feels about himself as a life form, he views himself as vermin and as disposable
this whole song really describes cerpain taxt, his appearance and his views on himself and his place in society...it introduces us to our anti-hero, who is shocking in appearance, but incredibly human...that's what i get anyways...im not trying to be pretentious, i hope i don't sound like i am
Julio Venegas was a physically scarred man - i read this from an interview. This would explain the line "Nurse said that my skin will need a graft" if the verse is interpreted as an introduction to Cerpintaxt.
