"Of Two Beginnings" as written by and Daniel Gildenloew Pain Of Salvation....
She is twelve I'm only ten
buried in this soft mountain of pillows
Parents away
She asks me have I been touched
Have I done the thing with anyone yet
Silence, a shy no

And there is nothing
That we'd rather share
Than that bodily warmth if we'd dare
But she's already twelve and I am
Just a child
Warm and shy

She's so old, already twelve and I am only ten
Than was me, young and free, there and then

Now in this hotel room I lie wondering who I am
Never quite as sure after a lie of questioning
Finding out at last that freedom is
A state of mind
But still not knowing how to get along with this mankind

Finding out at last that freedom is a state of mind

    General CommentMaybe it's a metaphor for how experienced he was at the time.

    General CommentAge doesn't really matter if it's something you've already been conditioned to. This actually sets up the entire journey of the album - she brings him into a world he wasn't ready for. It doesn't really end well for anyone.
