Now show your hands, your hands
You have no right to complicate
Now show your hands, your hands
You have no right to complicate
You put to me in your defense
A circumstance in evidence
That’s what you said
To me it seems you advertised
It’s your chosen last book
Gave you everything
All you need to make your decision
Keep these wounds open for you
Now they’re closing
Scars remind me every moment
Revolve alone, Revolve alone
Revolve alone, Revolve alone
All I said I meant it
Confused by the mire
We stride relentlessly
All I said I meant it
Now show your hands, your hands
You have no right to complicate
Now show your hands, your hands
You have no right to complicate
Revolve alone become defenseless
All I ever said
Before the moment
Twisting words inside my head
All I ever said
Take back everything, all I wanted
All I ever needed was here

    My InterpretationFirst of all, I can't get enough of this band's riffs, they're groovy as hell, its like Sybreed on steroids.
    The lyrics are very powerful. It seems the album is about a person'last moments of death, his recollections of all the things he did in life, how he behaved, honesty, morals etc. In this song, I feel like he is being judged by someone (God or himself) about the things he's done in life, was he honest or false, and he has no right to complicate, because good or bad becomes absolute. He may have lied to others, giving excuses, although the judge says all that the person needed was there. The person's wounds that were caused by lying/dishonesty are now closing, as he realizes that everything he needed was already there, or does he?

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing, i love how it goes from being beautifull to brutal so well, although i have to admit the old singer was a better, screams and clean (but the new guy has a hell of a voice).

    I must thank vulterer for the explanation there because i had no clue what the lyrics were about at all...
    Lovin the new album, finally thank god... :D

    General CommentWOW. This is probably the most well crafted portion of the 28 minute epic, not to discredit the rest in any way. TesseracT is one of the very few bands that doesn't just call themselves "ambient djent", they actually use atmospheric elements, as shown in the first minutes. And HOLY SHIT 2:08-3:25, that's the best part, those djent riffs are killer, and the vocals have so much effort!

    Vulterer is definetly right, especially because Lament is another one of my favorites off One, and the lyrics have that same meaning. Amazing and epic

    Song MeaningI think Concealing Fate is actually a story told backwards, with Acceptance being the conclusion. It's all about letting go of the past overcoming feelings of loss or maybe even anxiety. Hear me out.

    Origin is where it begins. Its a song clearly about losing a loved one in some way or another. Could simply be a bad break up or something, as corny as it sounds, but there's a lot of initial feelings of pain, betrayal, loneliness, and of course anger and confusion. Wishing they had never even perused love, "Wish that you had never begun this endeavor". It's over, and he is broken and shook from the sudden loss "why should it end this way?" He is withdrawn, building walls around him, denying chances of ever falling in love again, to never feel vulnerable to the pain.

    Next is Perfection and Epiphany. This is about envy. This is our character trying to cope after his loss. He would give anything to feel love again, and he would give anything to be someone better, someone capable of loving, and being loved, even for "just one moment." He has become so low, he would rather be someone else. Epiphany has no lyrics, so I kind of treat these two as one song.

    The Impossible is where he begins to realize something. He isn't sure how he's feeling and he isn't even sure why he should even let himself become so low. "don't you know how you're feeling?" He's beating himself up internally because he knows he's better than this, calling himself a "disgrace, is this how you plan on treating yourself?". He's also telling himself to breath, keep himself safe. He's telling himself its time to move on "Don't you think it's been long enough?" He's realized what he once thought was impossible is possible. He can over come this loss, and this pain is not foever. He can achieve the impossible.

    Deception is a continuation of the impossible. "so my demons, your time has come", he is confronting himself and his inner demons that tell him he's not good enough, that keep him in pain and unable to let go of her.

    Finally Acceptance. Finally he is moving on, after keeping his wounds open for her, he is learning to let go yet he keeps the scars to remind him of what he had to overcome. "Keep these wounds open for you, now they're closing, scars remind me every moment". He recollects on everything. Everything he ever said to her, he meant, regardless of the confusion in his mind after the fact, like wishing he was someone else or wishing they had never fell in love. He may have meant it then, but now he takes it all back. Because he no longer needs her. Because he realized, "All I ever needed was here."
