My blood is red
My blood is water and iron
But in my head i slip the bonds of the earth and I let myself go free

(So many things. So many things that you want to know)
I let myself go free
(So many of those that you want to change)
I let myself go free
(You can change)

My lucky star is said to have made a core out of iron
But I am fed by what i pull from the void and I let myself go free

(So many things. So many things that you want to know)
I let myself go free
(So many of those that you want to change)
I let myself go free
(You can change)

And when I'm dead, they'll know my heart was of iron
And still it bled and stained the path that I took to let myself go free

(So many things. So many things that you want to know)
I let myself go free
(So many of those that you want to change)
I let myself go free
(You can change)

(So many things. So many things that you want to know)
I let myself go free
(So many of those that you want to change)
I let myself go free
(You can change)

    Song Meaningi wrote this song. normally, i wouldn't divulge the meanings behind songs, but i want to talk about this one, since i think no one ever has or ever will visit this page. i get something out of having the meaning of the song out there in plain sight knowing that no one will ever know what the song is about.

    this song is about pushing past the boundaries in life that most people don't think about as existing, much less, confining and how doing so frees a person from an artificially shackled life.

    you have to know a little something about certain topics like biology and layman's astrophysics to get it. the first verse references the fact that the blood is made of up of mostly water and iron-based hemoglobin (my blood is water and iron) and illustrates the physical and chemical nature of the mind's container, the body, but that the mind is not constrained by those physicalities, should the owner strive to overcome them.

    the second verse references stellar evolution and relates that to the struggle of a determined person. massive stars fuse hydrogen into helium and helium into carbon and so on until they get to iron. often, at that point, the star will collapse into a black hole. the verse compares that process to one's luck running out (you may have heard the old expression about "lucky stars"), but one having the dogged determination to create his own luck by relentlessly pushing forward, like the black hole, which, even though the fuel that fed the star has run out, the resultant black hole feeds itself by pulling matter in from space on its own.

    the third verse is more philosophical. after a lifetime of breaking free from imposed constraints, one may be recognized as being strong (...my heart was of iron), but even so, those achievements were often the result of painful and difficult lessons learned along the way.

    none of aphelion's songs are the least bit popular, so may this comment remain obscured in plain sight forever! :)
