Thinking of an age old dream, places I have never seen
Fantasies lived times before
Split my brain, melt through the floor

Over clouds my mind will fly, forever now I can't think why
Body tries to leave my soul
Is it me? I just don't know
Memories rising from the past, the future's shadow overcast
Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led

Oh, another time, another place
Oh well, another smile on another face
When you see me floating up beside you
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you

Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away

Thinking of an age-old dream, places I have never seen
Fantasies lived times before
Split my brain, melt through the floor

Over clouds my mind will ride, forever now I can't think why
Body tries to leave my soul
Or is it me? I just don't know
Memories rising from the past, the future's shadow overcast
Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led

Oh, another time, another place
Oh well, another smile on another face
When you see me walking up beside you
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you

Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away

    General CommentReincarnation: In It's raw form. Alot of songs relate to reincarnating. I long to meet Steve Harris, I fear he will die before I get that chance though.
    Ok so why reincarnation? Obvious.
    "Thinking of an age old dream, places I have never seen"
    Age old dream as in... I've dreamed it so many times, places I have never seen as in... Where the fuck is that at... It's talking about a past life. WOW(sarcastic).
    "Over clouds my mind will fly, forever now I can't think why." Yup yup, the great ol' heaven, flying over clouds.. HELLO? lol. Oh and here comes this interesting part, "forever now I can't think why" :O oooooo OH ah... Forever? Meaning... lived all the lifes that were supposed to be lived? think about it... the brain splitting is kinda tacky, but melt through the floor means going to hell; Basically. the body leaving the soul is weird... usually its the soul leaving the body. Now I remember the some songs contain this error, or maybe its meant to be there... Think about it, in Brave New world, it says "Rip my bones of my flesh". :o yeah thought so too. "Mem'ries rising from the past, the future's shaddow overcast." Memories from the past? Yup yup, not in this life... future shadow overcast means to me like, I can see where I'll land in my future life, or next life.
    "Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led." He is having a headache of sort,
    maybe even too much info going on or something. So he is lead through the DARK PURGATORY.
    "Oh another time, another place.
    Oh another smile on another face" ok this is cool I like it cuzz watch, another time another place, meaning in my next life time in my next life's location. and the next part looks wrong to me, I want to believe so bad that he says "I'll wear another smile on another face"
    so I'll explain that, he will reincarnate into a different body and face, so he is talking about where and how he will be in the next life.
    "When you see me floating up beside you,
    You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you."
    aww I had a girl I cared about and i wish i could express her this... ok so this part, basically a statement about going to heaven, when you see me flotaing up beside you. then next is plain and simple he is saying that no matter where I am, where I go, i'll always love you, so don't forget about it.

    well there you have it
    I might write more on this because its not done...
    yeah you know what i will do it.



    Ok here we go






    Thinking of an age old dream, places I have never seen,
    Fantasies lived times before.
    I split my brain, melt through the floor.

    This talks how in his past he died by splitting his brain... weird told you so, and eventually ending up in hell





    Over clouds my mind will fly, forever now I can't think why.
    My body tries to leave my soul.
    Or is it me, I just don't know.

    This talks about finally going to heaven in one of his lifes





    Mem'ries rising from the past, the future's shaddow overcast.
    Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led.

    this explains his voyage through the purgatory




    so thats about it. I got more stuff but my metacarpals are aching-some and so ill go find some other lyrics.

    hey message me at :
