"The Nature Of Reality" as written by and Andrew Bell....
The nature of reality
Is pure subjective fantasy
Space and time and here and now
Are only in your mind

Machine of god and devil too
With no weapons just the truth
Belief does not existence make
It's only in your mind

The nature of reality
Is only in your mind

    General Commentagain, another song where it feels liek your walking through water. this song is saying religion is stupid because there is only self beleif. as in ciggarettes and alcohol, 'you've got to make it happen' the nature of reality iis in your mind, you can decide how you feel and what you should do. Rocking track very good vocals from liam. the bass is wicked

    General CommentAndy Bell rules!! Yes like bigrobbo2006 told, religion(God and devil stuffs) is just your own mind belief, the truth is God does not exist.

    General CommentThis appears to be about the beleifs of Friedrich Nietzsche, perspectivism. We cannot know the true nature of reality, all we have are our thoughts, our perspectives, which should not, in Nietzsches view, be taken at face value as their truth cannot be justified. "I've seen off God" appears to refer to the "God is Dead" side of Nietzsches philosophy. Maybe i'm wrong, it may be about something entirely diffirent, but this is how i perceive it.

    General CommentI honestly think this song is defined by its title. The nature of what you call "reality" could just be an illusion--the very fragile fabric of reality could not be real at all. People turn to God and religion as an explanation of why we're here, where we're going and where we've been, but we really don't know. This could all be part of some bigger part of thinking or existence or something that we can't even understand with our tiny human brains.

    Contrary to popular belief, it does NOT take drugs to realize this shit. It can certainly make your head hurt if you make it complex enough, but the concept of this idea, as a whole, is easy to understand.

    General CommentA reality of nature
    Is that you have a mind
    That was built to ponder
    Over such designs.

    So to just deny God
    Is not using truth
    But choosing Satan-blindness
    To feel sin-excused.

    Watch the world die
    Tears and the cries
    As crowds just follow along

    And who would have thought
    That the most poison lies
    Would be mass-fed to dead heads
    By songs.


    I am so sorry I bought my ticket.
    "Dig out your soul", already.

    General CommentOkay....This song starts out with what sounds like a snake rattling/ hissing. So, maybe that's what its meant to be - SARCASM towards what is evil-stupid. I sure hope so.

    IF it was meant to be sarcasm, though, the RISK of such a number is that there's likely to be people who just take it and love it like it is - literally - correct?

    The "nothing really matters" crowd needs to be elevated with truth and hope; not reinforced to just stay as is....

    "Waiting for the rapture" won't do it, either - because there WON'T BE a "rapture" (that's a manmade teaching, NOT a scriptural one).

    No, instead, people need to break away and go to "where there's life", for real.

    I DID like the "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" bit - the part that went something like, "Testing, 1,2,3...Gentlemen, ladies, take your positions,please. This is NOT a drill; I repeat, this is NOT a drill. Could we have the lights in the arena down 60% please....I don't think we could ask for a more beautiful evening, do you?"
