"Out of the Silent Planet" as written by Jerry Wayne Gaskill, Doug T. Pinnick, Ty Ryan Tabor and William S. Taylor....
Perfect peace
Mountains robed in glory, coming into view
Father speaks, son becomes the story
Essence of all true

I saw what cannot be seen
She spoke to me
Take what you've learned, set it free
See what you'll see

Ah...

Flowing power, waterfall of wisdom
Flawless bold commands
Masterpiece written o'er the vision by the perfect man
Living martyr, truer than the seasons
No more place for lies
Cast a seed, push aside the reason
Reign of terror dies

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite King's X tunes. It rocks, has cool lyrics, and the "wall of sound" vocals will make you say "wow, I've never heard anything like that before!".

    "out of the silent planet" was a book by C.S. Lewis, about a man named Ransom who was sent from Earth (the so-called "silent planet") to another planet to save it from evil, which had escaped the Earth without permission from the Master of the Universe.

    Song MeaningEspecially considering that the song is named after a C.S. Lewis book, it seems to me that this song contains some Christian imagery. Father=God, son/the perfect man/living martyr=Jesus. "I saw what cannot be seen" could mean seeing/finding God. The last three lines may describe the ideal world, perhaps something like what the world would be like after the second coming?
