The album title “All Is Not For All” is a warning to those who claim that they can have their cake and eat it too. Not everything can be handled by everyone, whether it be money, fame, women, power etc… The title also lends a warning to both the “Worm” and mankind to figure out their priorities and may the better side win. The concept is a neutral one, much like the concept of creationism or as we like to think, “The Force.” Which side will prevail? (I think we know the short term answer, in “Worm’s Eye View.”) There must always be a balance between good and evil, yin and yang, dark and light.
The album’s songs span a variety of topics including humbleness, nanotechnology, illness, astral projection, extraterrestrial encounters, love, longing and remorse, third culture upbringing, displacement and Japanese warrior code (Bushido) to name a few.
