"Jetpacks Was Yes!" as written by and Misha Mansoor Thomas Murphy....
These walls of time release
My eyes move like the drift
The cries, they resonate within
The fabric tears before me
Break ties between the kin

Reaching for a way out of this dream
I waste my breath ascending
Fears lead me astray
The past brings them to be
Whats left to carry me

But a memory
The dream endures these lies
Forever at the edge, left surviving alone

Whats left as I wonder
I've found a world where I am free
Inside that which is truth

The ground upon which I have grown is not the same
The fears, they've fallen away
Presently I've found I am not alone in a world of infinity sewn

Perceive beyond the seam
A soul evolves as one

    My InterpretationI don't know if my interpretation is what's intended, but this song has made its way to an elite group that really connect with me.
    How I interpret these lyrics is the feeling of being trapped by your past and unable to progress. Almost... wanting to progress, but with things (or people) from the past.
    From 'The ground upon which I have grown..." seems that the person has gotten past their past (haha) with the knowledge that He is not alone.

    Song MeaningThe song's lyrics and video concept are about an Immortal Being who starts to regret his immortality as he outlives everything, starting with his loved ones and ending with the planet and even the universe itself as his life is not bound by anything.

    General CommentFriggin' start reading books on how to conquer fear. You read everything else. You're able to do everything else. How about spending as much time on this as you do on sexual conquests. How about it?

    My InterpretationI think these guys are fed up with this postmodern shit we live in. Reality seems to be a fabric we create throughout our lives; our fears, our cries, our relationships, our memories are all building blocks of our reality. This fabric can be torn but to find another reality beyond, another fabric, "a world of infinity sewn". It's like a leaf upon a leaf upon a leaf... and when all the leaves have been torn, what's left? Is there a core to find? Yes, "a soul evolves as one."
    What I discovered is that Periphery wish to revive old myths we seem to have forgotten...
