"Lechium" as written by Dino Campanella, Gavin Hayes, Mark Engles and Drew Roulette....
Yes take time
To realize what you have
Yes i did
But suspended
And now i hang
Beneath the ground that we have made
For us
To walk on.

See me now
Crawl away, crawl away
See me now
Crawl away

Yes take time
To realize what you have
Content
But descended
And now i swim
Beneath currents of hope and faith
Now it is time
To surface.

??

See me now
Crawl away, crawl away
See me now
Crawl with me
Belive me now
Crawl away, crawl away
Come crawl with me

    General CommentIt seems as though the writer has thought..and come to the realization that what he has is nothing...
    the idea of being "beneath ground" and "beneath the currents of hope and faith" portrays stagnancy...the realization that all our hopes and faiths are unfounded..

    quite dim don't u think?

    but he doesn't seem to have a problem with it...cause the knowledge has brough an eery "content"

    I think the idea of this song is very similar to Yatahaze

    it's part of the journey that leads back to the start... as Yatahaze outlines

    General CommentTo really understand the song's lyrics, it's absolutely necessary to read the story which accompanies Leitmotif.

    General Commentthis IS lechium! i also thought it was Crosswind Minuet for some time, but then someone told me the first song is actually the symbol song, and not movement 1.. the intermission is in "traversing through the artic cold..."'s track..

    i don't know much about this song's meaning, but i don't think that "Beneath currents of hope and faith " is associated to stagnancy... currents imply movement to me. It's like people are driven by religion/beliefs (hope and faith), but it's time to get rid of that control ("Now it is time
    To surface.")..

    General CommentDoes anyone actually know what the ? part is? I've never been able to come close to getting it by listening, and thus far it doesn't seem like anyone else has. Any ideas?

    General CommentWell, it starts with 'Eee-yah-yah-yahyah' but aside from that, no.

    This is my favourite dredg song, I love the intro build up and the big distortion bit that comes in. It's perfect. I wish they still played it live.

    General CommentListening to a live version of this song, I have deciphered the first line of the elusive "????" (after the aa-ee-aah part that is).

    "Break the bubble"

    Dying to know what he's screaming. "Let me on your back?" That can't be right...

    General CommentGetting closer. Hope the next person that sees this takes a stab at deciphering the missing bit in parentheses. Can't find the rest in the liner notes. Maybe I'll figure it out one day.

    Break the bubble
    S(a) (ra) (ai)
    Let's / Move / On,
    Progress,
    And when / You / Grow
