Mastodon Divinations Music Video

Music video for Divinations, an amazing song from the groundbreaking 2009 Mastodon album Crack The Skye.    The record is said by the band to be another elemental concept album, although it is set to represent the Aether, which is a concept element rooted in classical era mythology and used to describe the various then unexplained phenomenon found in peoples observations of the world.   The concept was described as the fifth element by Plato and was later used by early physicists to theorize about the mechanisms and transport light used to travel.   The presence of Aether has never actually been proven and the band refers to their meaning of it on the album as the spirits and souls of all things.

Divinations Lyrics

It’s gone away
It’s gone for good
Animal spirits come calling me home
Through the tunnels of brilliant light
The magnet of wisdom is pulling
Burrowing faster the fabric of time

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Rapid descendants
The wormhole is empty
The center of Khlysty surrounds me
The fire is dancing in a silvery sheet of breath
Black robe
Necromancing
Summon the soul of the spectre

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Fire in the eye
Realm of mystic majesty

No escape
Binding spirits
No escape
Trapped in time space

Fire in the eye
Realm of mystic majesty
