Clutch: 10001110101 Meaning

10001110101 Lyrics

Ribonucleic acid freak out, the power of prayer.
Long halls of science and all the lunatics committed there.
Robot Lords of Tokyo, SMILE TASTE KITTENS
Did you not know that the royal hunting grounds are always forbidden?
Are you rolling...

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

    Thanks, M.

    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.

    It is translated into GP, but it has no meaning. The might as well have put another 0 at the end.

    I'm pretty sure 'temples of syrinx' is a reference to the Rush song, '2112' from 1976. I can't see it meaning anything, just a reference... 2112 is a great song so maybe it inspired Clutch in some way. IDK, it's just a guess.

    If you convert the word "Clutch" to binary, 10001110101 occurs within it. It's probably that simple.

    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?

    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."

    I'm surprised nobody has come up with this, although one person came close. The song is about Robots taking over the planet. Take how Neil Sings it, it is really 10 00 11 10 101, not binary, but Morse Code for "Am I A R", or Am I A Robot

    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.

    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
