"Steambreather" as written by and Troy Jayson Sanders William Breen Kelliher....
Running outside the Nazca Lines
You know I see you all in white
Hoping you'll grow the fruitful vines
An array to give us life

Violence born within my mind
I know it always takes its time
Climbing inside the cosmic eye
And forgive the enemy

I wonder who I am
Reflections offer nothing
I wonder where I stand
I'm afraid of myself

Watching you crumble to the ground
Made me want to run away
Helping you find the golden crown
Made it easier to stay

I wonder who I am
Reflections offer nothing
I wonder where I stand
I'm afraid of myself

At the bottom of the mountain
Unaware of my surroundings
Separation from my spirit
Let the tree fall on the plain

I wonder who I am
Reflections offer nothing
I wonder where I stand
I'm afraid of myself

    General CommentRunning outside the Nazca Lines

    The Nazca lines are mysterious geoglyphs in Peru which have differing theories on their purpose. A majority of those theories are of a celestial nature either in a polytheistic sense or of an astrological one.

    The lyric makes me think of possibly existing outside of God's influence. Another thought is that the writer is tripping on halucinogens and is 'outside the lines' of normal perception. God and halucinogens are intrinsically linked in many older cultures especially in South America

    this part:

    Violence born within my mind
    I know it always takes its time
    Climbing inside the cosmic eye
    And forgive the enemy

    The lines

    You know I see you all in white
    Hoping you'll grow the fruitful vines
    An array to give us life

    Seem to be asking the creator for blessing

    A common occurence with breakthrough psychedlic use is the 'ego death' which is generally a dissolving of the perception of self into the single 'life consciousness' of all things in the universe. The violence of the ego is gone and all that remains is harmony or love or whatever descriptor you'd like.

    I wonder who I am
    Reflections Offer Nothing
    I wonder where I stand
    I'm afraid of myself

    Those lyrics really make me think of possibly some kind of vision quest or other rite of passage using psychelics.
