"Duplicate Keys Icaro (An Interim Report)" as written by and Todd Kowalski David Guillas....
A primordial flow across the blood-brain barrier.
Cryptic ring structures bind to receptors.
These duplicate keys throw the floodgates open
On a raw datasphere of pure information.

An inner path to outer space
Or a facile article of faith?
Falsifiable fantasies
Or freestanding parallel realities?

We're so frequently seduced
By such novel, exotic views.
Our confirmation biases
Leverage everything we perceive.

Visions so astonishing, preposterous, impossible.

A cosmic lattice of calligraphies, geometries
Unthinkable.
Infinite Jaali screens, alive, florescent
As I shatter, melt. Annihilation.

Rolling hills. The water flows. The flowers bloom.
There is no me. There is no you. There is all.
There is no you. There is no me. And that is all.

A profound acceptance of an enormous pageantry.
A haunting certainty that the unifying principle of the
Universe is love.

    Song MeaningI think this is about a DMT/Ayahuasca trip. An Icaro is a shamanic medicine song. Except I don't understand the Duplicate Keys' part.

    Song MeaningTodd Kowalski: That one is about wondering about the world and not accepting easy answers or pretending you know the answers about just how great and crazy the universe is and all of history is. And perhaps even wondering why the general public doesn’t think about these things and why do they accept easy answers. That’s my interpretation from talking about it with Chris. In the end, you have to see the world as good and beautiful and you have to treat each other right.

    General CommentThe beginning of this song is awesome the way it sounds to me. He seems to be describing how a fantastical thought forms, and questions it's validity. Couldn't have been written better by Shakespeare (well maybe). The rest is about what this thought has allowed him to understand about his feelings towards life.

    My InterpretationAt a concert last week Chris introduced the song by saying something along the lines of - we (current western society) measure our wealth by our jobs our homes our possessions but some cultures (I think the aboriginal cultures of Canada) measured wealth by the legacy left behind for future generations. In philosophy its calls the Good Ancestor Principle.

    In response to kettles86 “Icaro is a shamanic medicine song” I think the song is talking about us being the shamans so to speak and healing the Earth through basically being good to one another being and leaving a better world for our ancestors
