This is the real meaning of the song as told by the lead singer of clutS&T:
Are you a tech-head? You've got a song that looks like binary code ("10001110101") but it doesn't mean anything.
Neil: Yeah it doesn't really mean anything. You know, the fact that it doesn't mean anything has really upset some, a lot of people. I think they're expecting some kind of hidden command. Well the thing is to actually say something in binary code it would have to be a series of ones and zeros that would go on for a considerable length of time.
S&T: Right you'd have three and a half minutes of 1-0-1-1-0-1...
Neil: Yeah. You know I might be able to get the word "Hi" in there but I think that might be a little cutesy.
S&T: Plus you'd never be able to remember it.
Neil: No, no.

There is a long, ancient, sumerian text this is linked to. I've been studying it for years. Before translation, if you cycle through to the 10,001,110,101 word, you come to the first word of this passage: ergah teros undalum meriah phalos gerenta. Which translated means "The way your prophet breaks his bread does not speak the future." Apparently Mephirostus, the writer of the text, was trying to tell his followers that they were stupid to overanalyze his work when he himself had said it means nothing. Clearly, this is no coincidence and the band was warning it's fans to not look like idiots.
The prophets have failed.

Don't forget - there are only 10 sorts of people - those who understand binary and those who don't.

All of you have to much time on your hands. Plain and simple the song is catchy and is fun to listen to. There is no god and the rapture isn't coming and this song isn't singing about it. Come and talk to me when your all sober.

man, you fuckers smoke a lot of pot. and to the dude that asked about listening to it backwards....it says "10101110001" really trippy shit, man.
and the captcha code for me to post this message is "heniquis cannot". what the fuck you think that means? maybe we should convert it to binary and find out. i bet it's something to do with satan or the end of days probably.

About the post from Feb 6th, 18:47: That is not binary for 88. In binary form, 88 would be written as 1011000, which is VERY different from the numbers in the song.

Does anyone know the exact lyrics for the line 'Periodic table with a center piece of mind'? It will change the meaning of the line depending on the word. For example, "centerpiece" (all one word) is a vase of flowers on the dinner table or the cornucopia decoration at Thanksgiving, and is not likely the correct word for this song. But "piece" would be like a piece of cake, so the "center piece" (incuding a space between words) would be a piece from the middle of the cake. But the big one is if that word is actually "peace" (meaning calm), which would change it to "peace of mind" which would completly change the meaning of that line when you really think about it, espicially with the Temple mentioned in the same song. All three of these options are pronounced the same way. So does anyone know the correct spelling of the words from this line?

It is Aston Villa's recent form. 1-0 0-0 1-1 1-0 1-0 1-

If you take 10001110101 and subtract 10001110101 then add 23 you get 23! It is a song about a shitty movie!! I cant believe it took this long to figure it out!

It's obvious to anyone over 60: "Paul is dead."

1141 Kbps is also a sampling rate for CD music could it possibly be their way of getting you to buy the cd. Besides the fact that their music is pretty damn good.

Reapers...u mean mass effect 3?yea it dropped on the 6th. Good call but that has nothing to do with this.
anonymous Mar 1st, 2012 3:28am report
You are all blind to the truth! The Reapers are coming.

interesting tidbit about binary code. as of late
we have seen on youtube a lot of user names
incorporating numbers such as 10001110101.
after a little research, it turns out that the
number 88 converts to 0011100000111000 in
binary. 88 is SUPPOSED to be a 'secret' code
for HH which stands for heil hitler
(demonstrating the mentality of nazis as its
really really hard to figure out, H being the
8th number in the alphabet). just passing it

i think the key is to look at the rest of the lyrics in the song rather than just the binary line. i think maybe it could be about the current state of music being over computerized and the changing of that.

What an odd coincidence! 10001110101 translated from binary is 1141, which is the same combination on my luggage!
anonymous Nov 24th, 2011 11:45pm report
Has anyone here ever tried backmasking (playing backwards) this song?
