Lies!

My truth has been revealed
At the cost of everything I knew
My last safe haven falls behind me
With the self that once consumed

Into the void
I'm pursuing only answers
I'm shedding skins and faces
Past loves and bitter hatreds

And it has come to pass
A path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday
Become the catalyst to seek my change

And it has come to pass
A path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday
Become my catalyst

So here I stand
A stranger to my new-found freedom
I am a vessel
I am a vessel without destination
Devoid of direction

No roles define me
Yet conflict embraces me
At the mercy of lucidity
I am adrift in a world all too real

A hollow man

Into the arms of eternal struggle
I must condemn
My restless mind
I must condemn
My restless mind

And it has come to pass
A path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday
Become my catalyst to seek my change

And it has come to pass
A path set in stone now breaks like glass
The failings of yesterday
Become my catalyst

I seek the guidance gained from silence
Illumination from within the darkness
My council kept with the emptiness
In the heart of the unknown

    General CommentI think it's about not knowing what to do with your life or having your life dramatically change. Sick song.

    General CommentAlso about how everything will eventually work out. "I must condemn my restless mind." "Illumination from within the darkness."

    General CommentIf you've seen the interview just before deep blue came out winston said “It’s basically about the search for truth in a world that seems to be devoid of that,The story is told through the eyes of a man who wakes up and realizes that his life is a lie and nothing he believes in is real. So he tries to find the truth within himself and his journey takes him to the bottom of the ocean and back again.”

    and if you buy the CD you get all the artwork that explains the story.
    i believe "A path set in stone now breaks like glass" just means what he thought was real suddenly shattered and now is searching for the truth, "the failings of yesterday become my catlyst" that just means his failings are now what are going to lead him to the truth. "I'm persuing only answers ,shedding skin past loves and bitter hatreds" means that he is forgetting about the past etc. etc.

    Everyone song has its own part in this story, maybe unrest and samsara dont count :S.

    Song MeaningIn this, he's saying nothing will stop him.
    He's searching for answers.
    Anything he's ever known is forgotten.
    "So here I stand, a stranger to my newfound freedom"
    He's now unchained.
    pez explains well.
