Listen to Ode... Again.

Mark's voice appears in the following in the album, My Own Prison.

Torn ( Does some vocalizing/harmonizing )

Ode ( Again, chorus -- possibly the voices too )

My Own Prison -- (Has his own part in the chorus)

Sister ( BC version, possibly in WU-R, I'll look into it later. )

What's The Life For -- (Background singing, Chorus -- "What's this life for")

Seems everyone wants to know what's being said in Ode.

I need everyone to listen to Ode again and see if they can pick up what I did. I think there's more to this stuff than originally thought.

Well.

This is what I found.

It's definately a very difficult series to interpret correctly.

The audio is covered in a couple of audio channels with a few sonic layers over it.

Not to mention, the damn riffs get in the way. They also split the wave fix to make it so that the LEFT speaker in your stereo picks up a ton of distortion and fuzz and actually sneaks in a THIRD voice, while the right opens up the audio channel with the the two main voices and the bridge, which begins...

at 3:02 and continues on through until 3:17

E: -----------------------------------------------
B: --------------------------------------------------
G: --------------------------------------------------
D: -0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11--1-2-3-3-2-1-
A: -0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11--1-2-3-3-2-1-
D: -0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11--1-2-3-3-2-1-



Which then turns into this at 3:17

E: ----------------------------------------------
B: -------------------------------------------------
G: -------------------------------------------------
D: ---------------------------------------1-2-3-3-2-1-
A: ---------------------------------------1-2-3-3-2-1-
D: -0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11-0-12-11- 1-2-3-3-2-1-




Now that we know what's going on musically, let's take a look at the voices.

First off, there's three. The thing is, that third voice on the left side really messes with the filtering. It pretty much muddles, or rather, overwrites some of the main conversation on the right.

So. This is what I've got.

If you balance all the way to the right, you can hear alot better what's being said in the main conversation.

I had to strip a few channels and filter through some junk. This is what they say.

At first, it sounds like

.... Voice 1: I *garble*rushed (?) away

Voice 2: Oh, you know if you can, uh, get offa work?

Voice 1: Uhh, you gonna *garble*

Voice 2: Yea ...*Garble*

So I worked harder. After turning up the volume, closing my eyes, and really listening to what was being said, I clearly heard this:

(3:03) V1: I kept her rushed a way

(3:06) V2: Oh, you know if you can, uh, get offa work?

(3:09) V1: Uhh, you gonna come catch me? ( Right now? )

(3:11) V2: Y-yeaaah.


Then Stapp does his ... "Yeeeaaaaahhhh"

... however. Interesting. Faintly, a third voice can be heard on the left channel, once it's all stripped down, and actually can be heard while these other two voices are talking. Like filler.

Sounds pretty sinister.

So, it starts at approximately at 3:05 -- two seconds after the first conversation starts, and ends at 3:12. You'll notice "all on you!" is, like, clearly growled ... or yelled -- look for it right at 3:11, after the last line is spoken on the main conversation.

It sounds likes a single man talking to himself.

Strange voice 3:

You know, if you can... call this thing a mistake ... the price to freakin' (expletive: f---in') pay is all on you!


Well. That's what I gathered. I'm very sure about the main conversation -- although, the first line -- "I kept her rushed away" .. "Kept her rushed away" sounds more like "cupa wushed ha-way"... apparently, the guy who was talking was terribly inarticulate. Had to play it over a couple of times to actually get what he was saying.

That third voice sounds evil. Faint. And angry.

Well, now that Ode is cleared up, if anyone wants any of the other song clearled up, post for it. Took me thirty minutes to decipher this one ... so.

Do you guys hear the same?

wow one of the cooler threads i've seen on this board. i would love to get this software and see what i can hear but thanks for taking the time to at least start to crack the puzzle. sounds kind of weird what they are saying certainly not as inspirational as what most of the lyrics are. who could the third voice be? marshall, philips, kurzweg perhaps?

I have never known anyone with such a big imagination. That's interesting, you've done your homework, have a cookie.

... Gee. What kind of cookie?

I was thinking, maybe, Oreos.

Lamentably, Reese's Peices don't count as cookies.

Damn.

And, do I get milk?

To me the 1st line sounds like they are saying "Hey I got a couple questions for ya..."
I don't have any special equeptment, but I could kinda pick that out. I suppose I could be wrong though...

You can have a cookie of your choise. If you want Oreo's, then I'll get you Oreo's.

You can have milk too, but only half a glass, do you want to make that a milkshake?

Wow, Malevolence, you really have alot of extra time on your hands.....lol!

I don't think that's what they're saying at all, but I think that alot of times we hear what we want to hear. You very well could be correct though...who knows.

Hmmmmmmmm.. scratches head ! Ohhhhh mysterious Creed. Hidden lyrics, hidden stuff everywhere. Sends fans damn crazy. (bangs head on keyboard) Well this is very different to the original interpretation.
"Voice 1. I Have a couple of questions for ya
Voice 2. Yeah ahh, go ahead
Voice 1. Where are we going?
Voice 2. 26.7 degrees, is that about right?
Which all lead to the co-ordinates of Human Clay.

Did anyone here ever read the Hidden Chronicles ?
either Creed have a very smart marketing strategy (ie: hidden stuff to get fans to purchase original cd's in the search for hidden clues) or is there a mystery to be solved.

HMMMMMMMM....... seek and you shall find !!

BTW(it's been a while since i've managed to drop in here...... G'Day everyone and Happy New Year to you all )
