Into planet Earth...

Tread your steps carefully
For the ground can twist and turn

Tread your steps carefully
For the ground may twist and turn
Choose your friends wisely
For just when you think you know someone
They could abandon you with scorn
Oh little one

Your mother will hold you in her arms
Your father will teach you his dignity and shun

Comes to planet hate, to this emotion that I berate
Yet some people force me to feed my violent seed
What have we become, the damage remains and cannot be undone
Oh little one
Your brother may stab you in the back and laugh
Your sister will love you unconditionally as all love should be

What have we become, the damage remains and cannot be undone

Stare into the sky with newborn perfect eyes oh little one enjoy your time
There will be heartache there will be rain and joy I can't explain
My precious little one explore your time

Your mother will hold you in her arms... and smile
Your father will teach you his dignity and shun

Nevermore, having written 13 new songs, entered Wichers studio, North Carolina, in August 2009, to record the album. Van Williams completed recording the drumming on the album as 17th of August, in Seattle. The whole recording process was finished in October.

Warrel Dane commented on the writing process: "These songs are full of newfound rage, lyrically and musically. Jeff Loomis has come up with some amazing new riffs that will no doubt please old and new fans alike. Also, I think the combination of Peter and Andy(production & mixing) will result in something very, very special." Dane expressed his opinion about the song "And the Maiden spoke": " [It] is going to blow your minds; it's twisted, progressive lunatic fringe riffing with vicious hooklines."[3]

Jeff Loomis commented on the writing of the album: "I think that with the new Nevermore, it still sounds like the band, but I think I'm giving Warrel a little bit more room this time around for more vocals rather than all the notey, kind of complex stuff and all that, so this time around it's just a little bit more wide open musically for him to really be able to do whatever he wants vocally this time around. So we'll see what happens. It's gonna be an interesting album for us, for sure."[4]

A music video for the song "Emptiness Unobstructed" directed by Nigel Crane, was filmed during the band's May 18 concert at the O2 Academy Islington in London, England.
