This is a quote from the book, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

God’s original prototype, too weird to live, too rare to die.”

The music video for Ocean’s Pyramids is highly reminiscent (intentionally or otherwise) of the novel as well. The book is a roman à clef, rooted in autobiographical incidents. It was adapted into a film in 1998.
