about

It's the most epic track I've ever done. A three-part suite with elements drawn from symphonic noise to, well, Devin Townsend. I worked hard on it and I'm not even sure what the hell it means, but damn if I didn't try to make it epic.

lyrics

I. 3am

Reflection
Clarity
Infection
Sanity

I am coming
I am there
I am breathing
I am air

With these hands
I write these words
So that in time
I shall be heard


II. Questions

Do you know what it means
Means to be free?
And that if you exist
Then time shall not be missed?

Did you look in your mind?
Do you ask all the time?
Are you sure of yourself?
And of her need of help?

These are the questions that I ask myself

Is introspection wrong?
Is it all in need of song?
And what if it's a lie?
Will you fade into the sky?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else

How long will you wait?
Until your eyes are cold and grey?
Is the answer in your soul?
Will the answer make you whole?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else

No one else can understand
No one else will ever be...here
No one else will read these words
And no one else...will be free

On the eve of eclipse
On a night such as this
When the sun kisses moon
Then will I be there soon?

These are the questions that I ask myself
And I ask no one else
And I ask no one
I ask no one
I ask no one else...

"I am not afraid now. Now I know there are others like me, who can and will fight back. I will face the Truth.

Tomorrow is my enemy.

Many are my leader."

III. Unity

Death
Is just a question
Of your state of mind
Life
Is just a vision
Of where you stand
Death
It's just across
The veil of time
Life
Is just a place
To understand...

...understand...

Universe
Wrapped in its own trappings
We take the blade
Into our skin

And verse
And chorus
And poem
And song
And choir

And verse
And chorus
And poem
And song
And choir
And symphony...

...symphony...

Universe
Wrapped in its own trappings
We force the blade
Deeper within

...There's nothing left inside of me...now...

"You must all let go of your Hubris. You must all work as one. Unity is the only resource through which you can find the truth.

Go forth, my sons."
