Black Label Lyrics
Compression of my space made complete.
I would rip out my own entrails by hand just to be alone.
Inanity rolls total through this sphere.
Ostracized for clarity of vision.
A dream unrealized of...

According To Randy, they first wrote this song while they were completely waisted, "we were so drunk we forgot to do the lyrics". With that im doubting the song has any real meaning.
It depicts the worldview of an individual who finds the world, and other people, inane, and longs to be separate from them. He sees himself as outside anyway, "ostracized for clarity of vision", but remains surrounded by humanity, which he hates. "rife with hostility, what has caused me so much hate? Humanity." as with much metal, it combines the pessimistic reality of blues with the fantasy of mid-90s pop, and extends this emotion into the fantasy realm of "exterminate with extreme prejudice."
