"So Gently We Go" as written by and Edwin C/masini Ghazal....
Fill my head with your nonsense
You breathe my breath 'till I turn red
Close your eyes try to follow me
If you close your eyes you can become me
You can park your shoes on my front step
Then gently walk barefoot through my sunken chest
I'll shade my eyes from the burning sun
But feel confident 'cause we're as bold as love
And laughter

Wake me up when the day is late
So I can watch the sunset and go back to bed
And dream so real the fantastic state
Psychodramatic means to uncertain ends
I'll scare you blind with my confidence
As cool as Jesus and his twelve best friends
The reason we can do these things is that the Earth has told of an outrageous spring....
Remembered

We'll meet for breakfast in the sunroom
The feeling in my soul as sweet as good perfume
Leave your sex at the door come in
There's ecstasy for all, no need to leave your name
Pirouettes we will make in game
On the ceiling movies of our lives will play
The reason we can do these things
Is that our minds are clouded
And we can't see straight

Maybe I've played my part
But it's a players art
Me and my friends we were all just living... playing
I've heard the sound that silence makes
And I realize the world can break
From the inside out and outside in
On a breath of wind

    General CommentThis is an amazing song with really odd lyrics. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be about but I can picture IME getting really high and writing this song. "Leave your sex at the door... come in, There's ecstasy for all (...) The reason we can do these things is that our minds are clouded and we can't see straight"... I think this song has a sense of mystery and uncertainty to it as well, it's like he asking what is the meaning to my life: "Psychodramatic means to uncertain ends (...)
    Maybe I've played my part, but it's a player's art." Nonetheless, this is a classic song by IME at their peak.

    General CommentPersonally, I think this song very heavily deals with more intangible and slightly more spiritual aspects of life. The lyrics are somewhat cryptic, however, at the same time, they make sense on an intuitive level. To me this song deals with the things we don't own upto in life, conciously and to read this song that is steeped in imagry and metaphor you need to be able to read and decipher what is trying to be said.

    I don't doubt that some type of drugs were involved in making this song, but there is a poinency to these lyrics.

    General CommentConcur with the last comment. This is their best song. 15 years old and still fantastic. There is an acoustic version kicking around, which is quite good, too.
