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.

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

I can interpret this only one way, you guys look into this stuff too much! It's fun to see what it could be but, not everything has a specific meaning, sometimes we wish it did. I don't think this one has a meaning, just a good jam. Sit back, have a whiskey and rye, pat the dog, feel the music and move on, I am.

He might have said that it means nothing but Chicago also says that 25 or 64 is not about cocaine and they're full of shit.

Here's what it actually means if you decode it: 10001110101 = "BOP-bata, bata-bata-bata-BOP; BOP-bata-BOP-bata-BOP.
It's just meter, folks, accents and rests. He could have mumbled any words instead of 'one' and 'zero'. Think about it. "Cat-doggy, doggy-doggy-doggy-cat, cat-doggy-cat-doggy-cat'.

Holy crap guys seriously? 10001110101 base 2 EXACTLY converted to decimal = 1141 base 10. It is Arsenic(radioactive) .. and yes Arsenic is not only a poison but is also an alchemical reference to an evolving substance, which is why the bake sale is referenced.

it could be decimalised into 1141, which stands for 11 letters, four words, one meaning (I love you too)

As being a computer science major you learn that for binary you can omit the first number if it is a 0. Thus the song is 10001110101 but if you add the omitted 0 it becomes 010001110101 then if you separate the numbers in groupings of 4 (0100 0111 0101) and convert each binary section to hexadecimal you get the numbers 4, 7, 5 which then if you count on the English alphabet gives you DGF. Have a good day.

It doesn't mean a damn thing folks. By now you should know that Neil Fallon loves to write obscure, crazy shit and let the listeners pull the meenings out of them it's part of the fun listening to clutch. In conjunction with some heavy, ripping guitar and pounding drums you got yourself some good shit people, awesome shit, no matter what niel is saying. My advice would be to buy every single Clutch album ever made and listen to every one of them a thousand times. It'll make your life a little bit better. M.L. South Amboy

People calling this binary are stupid idiots.
It's 0's and 1's but it does not mean shit.
It's an equivalent to me typing.....

That is the same number sequence that is tattooed on Bender’s shiney metal ass!.... repeat it fast enough, you travel in time!

It means we are all going to die so shut up and enjoy the ride!

10001110101 is a completely useless figure. It's 512. An integer that means absolutely nothing. Total bullshit, but I love the lyrics. It's also radioactive so don't go near it.
