Here is the backdrop to this post: I have been listening to Dream Theater for a couple of years now. I tend to enjoy certain instrumental music while I meditate or want to practice visualization etc, but that's besides the point here. I was introduced to Liquid Tension Experiment first, and initially I resisted even bothering to give DT a chance due to having lyrics. I have found that most music (with lyrics) these days, promote ego feeding garbage. It is meant to be this way, and it is no coincidence that DT has never "broken out" into the mainstream.
This part is quite literal and a theme throughout all of their records (do you know of this illusion yet?)
said:And now I find
References his higher self, his nature of mind. This is shielded from you while your consciousness is within your human body. This nature of mind (which makes you whole) is what is left behind while human.
said:full of doubt, deception, and delusion
Self observation (very important).
said:I search within
Reference to meditation and going beyond the sensations of your human body (which limit you).
said:In a world full of constant confusion
Literal. Think about how chaotic and uncertain the times are that we now live in. He is saying he will not fall in line with everyone else (whom are deluded).
said:Behind closed eyes
Reference to meditation and finding the truth within. This truth is never spoken of publicly by authority or media. You must seek it yourself, which leads us to:
said:Through this world with us
Let me answer this DT quote with another quote, from Octavarium - "The answer's been right in front of you". It's true, the truth is hidden for you to find among all of the lies of this world.
so wake up, or
said:we'll keep moving like mice through
To be continued...
