Inner sense lost in a stream
Another day faking control
Alone, still living an introspective lie
Cut adrift, in constant motion
Roaming never ending oceans

Bleeding poets cry, hands to the sky
Their quest was one of futility
I know man's lost in cosmic settings of coincidence
Just spinning, twisting, circling on...

Manipulate my mind, I don't mind
the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

Manipulate your mind, would you mind
the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

I will deny, I still deny, I will deny all
These truths were all yours
I refused them as mine

Manipulate my mind, I don't mind
the kind of lie to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

Man manipulates man's mind
Should they mind the kind of lie
to subdivide, petrify, dehumanize

Spinning, twisting, circling on

    General CommentThis music is ACTUALLY mind-boggling! There are time-signature shifts every five seconds it seems!

    As for the lyircs...wow...my view on this is that the only way to understand these lyrics is to see things through their eyes, to know their feelings and what they were thinking at the time. But that won't ever happen, so I might as well take a shot.

    It seems to be about the frustrations of life and how one can go completely insane just by the similarity of each day as one lives their life on a day-to-day basis. It's like...you lose control, even though there's nothing to lose control of.

    C'mon people, POST! This is INCREDIBLE music! (If not a little flat in the emotion department)

    My InterpretationI too think it's about routine and living your life for the sake of it, and not giving it any meaning.

    Great song. Can't say I can sit through any other Spiral Architect tune yet though. Mind-boggling is definitely a good way to describe it...
