"Quintessence" as written by and Brann Timothy Dailor William Brent Hinds....
The demon skin is covered in fine mist
Opened his hand in my hand
Holding my eyes to the future
Hovering above myself
Letting loose the guided
Punching these holes in my head
The space time paradigm

Omnipresence
Primal instincts

Let it go

Calling reason
Finding you
These wild hearts run
Even deeper
Burning through
These wild hearts run

Let it go

Letting me free the quintessence
In fine mist
Opened his hand in center
Holding my eyes to the future
Letting loose the guided
Punching these holes in my head
Losing my skin to the landslide

Omnipresence
Primal instinct

Let it go

Calling reason
Finding you
These wild hearts run
Even deeper
Burning through
These wild hearts run

Let it go

Shield failure
Speed farewell

    My InterpretationWhile in the Khlyst cult, they see our protaginists future:

    "Opened his hand in my hand
    Holding my eyes to the future
    Hovering above myself
    Letting loose the guided
    Punching these holes in my head"


    They see that his destiny is to find the "real himself". Like a inner search. He needs to let himself go, to relax, to go with the flow, to follow his heart. I'm not really sure, but it seems that "finding you" is both in a spiritual way (the mentioned inner search) but also in a physical way (he needs to get to his body again):

    "Calling reason
    Finding you
    These wild hearts run
    Even deeper
    Burning through
    These wild hearts run"

    Previously it's like a superficial diagnosis and now they do a deeper one. He then let them explore the real Him. I can't explain this very well. It's like he frees his soul, his pure matter, the true himself, so the cult members can see better the future. The conclusion is the same as the previous "diagnosis", however it confirms the theory that he need to go back to "find himself", both physically and spiritually, just as explained before:

    "Letting me free the quintessence
    In fine mist
    Opened his hand in center
    Holding my eyes to the future
    Letting loose the guided"

    General CommentIt is also worth noting that quintessence is the fifth element, which is said to be the substance which binds ethereal bodies or forms together.

    General CommentGood interps.
    How about that chiming melody at the end of the song? cool or what?
    It's also at the end of The Czar a little bit too.
    It Would Be Soo Awesome If That Melody Is The Main Riff In "The Last Baron"!

    General Commentthis is an exstention of the trip from divinations but more of an astral projection. as he gains more incite he feels omni present and feels that he has breaken through their sheilds and hell be safe of the dangers.
