To seem you're me in me and over me
Relief in all things
And all things shoot through me
And all things shoot through you
Wherever you are
To seem you're a dream
When you never stop
And we ask you what you are
Belief as one with what you believe in
Travel slowly
Move in circles
You know time grows oldi n reverse
Life as a thing that began
And was magnified
And made the first fire and the last one
To mean everything you never say
Every single thing going every way
When your leader's gone
He means to make you strong
He never went away
'Cause what you need you are

    General CommentI think in a way its kind of a love song but magical...all things shoot through me and all things shoot through you....your a dream..move in circles...made the first fire and the last one....it seems like two people really connect but in the end of the song its almost like it ended but for good reasons...he means to make you strong he never went away..cuz what you need you are...Its kinda self explanatory

    General Commentmy favorite part of the song:
    "When your leader's gone
    He means to make you strong
    He never went away
    Cuz what you need you are"

    i dont really know what to say about this song. it's really good. umm when he says "And all things shoot through me
    And all things shoot through you
    Wherever you are
    To seem you're a dream
    When you never stop
    And we ask you what you are
    Belief as one with what you believe in
    Travel slowly
    Move in circles
    You know time grows oldi n reverse
    Life as a thing that began
    And was magnified
    And made the first fire and the last one"

    grosso modo, that's just pretty much how everything is connected, i think. and when he says relief in all things it means that even though you go through something tough you'll find some relief in a certain aspect of the situation, since everything is connected together in some way...

    General Commentdosedxbyyou, I think your comment about going through something tough but finding relief in it - hit the nail on the head.

    I think the most important line is "Cuz what you need you are". After listening to many of John's songs he seems to be very concerned with the idea of fate and everyones ability to affect their own fate. Although it is surely not this simple, I think it is what he is getting at. Thats my opinion.

    General Commentthis is one of the rare songs john makes where every line has its meaning. the main aspect coming thriugh here is that of fate in everyone. he believes that everyone should see the real side of themselves and this is the way to help people relese that and get the relief of them. i dodnt have time to say about the lines ill be back later though. it takes a while to construct how to put this stuff in. ill be back in about an hour

    General Commentok im back.
    to seem your me im me and over me_to see you sitting ther deppresed
    relief in all things_there is relief in everything
    and all the things shhot through me_everything passes by me
    and all the things shoot thriugh you_ your not the only one
    wherever you are_ dosent matter what world, still the same
    to seem your a dream_what it says
    when you never stop_you dont stop to think bout above
    and we ask you what you are_kind of putting you down but for your own good
    belief as one with what you believe in_ Believe what you want not what others want you to
    travel slowely_ rhcp ref; soul to squeeze
    move in circles_move where and when you want
    you know time grows old in reverse_ time is just gonna repeate itself and get old
    life as a thing that began_life is always crap at times
    and was magnified_ makes people see it more and makes them deppressed
    and made the first fire and the last one_ made the first mistake and last
    to mean everything you never say_ you never tell outside your circle
    every single thing going every way_ people are tottally diffrent
    when your leeders gone_ when the one you love has gone
    he means to make you strong_ they dont want you to be sad bout it
    he never went away_ their still living in your heart
    cuz what you need you are_ you will always be the last line that i dont know what it means. prob something like what energy you need to get over the pain is within you and once you find it then its allot of relief to you.
    thankyou for spending your time reading i hope its right or ive just made a great fool of myself

    General Comment"travel slowly, move in circles" Dont moove too fast and forget who you are or were. As a person you will change and evolve slowly, but you cant lose sight of your past. by traveling in circles you come back to the same places where you were, but as a slightly different person. maybe this ties in with "you make it through the day, see things another way"

    i like what you said ILJF.

    the way the electronic introductions and tracks are used to change the moods on this album are nothing short of brilliant.
