Don't hideaway, hideaway from your imagery
Don't hideaway, hideaway from all your daydreams
(Or your nightmares)

What is to fear when surrounded in apathy
When putting down words is just like pulling teeth away

And I know some kind of rain will fall
But it can't rain everyday

Don't hideaway, hideaway from your intricacies
And don't hideaway, hideaway from all your obliques
(It's all out there)

There's no need to fear all those things in your histories
When putting down words is like putting things away

So long Sekhu, goodbye Ren

    This might be the most upbeat song ever. This is a great song, and I can definitely hear the Brian Wilson influence in this one. More people need to listen to this band!!!

    It's actually "So long Sekhu, goodbye Ren" but close enough, i guess. It comes from Egyptian Mythology, the ancient Egyptians believed in seven souls "Top soul, and the first to leave at the moment of death, is Ren the Secret name. This corresponds to my Director. He directs the film of your life from conception to death. The Secret Name is the title of your film. When you die, that's where Ren came in. Second soul, and second one off the sinking ship, is Sekem: Energy, Power. Light. The Director gives the orders, Sekem presses the right buttons. Number three is Khu, the Guardian Angel. He, she or it is third man out...depicted as flying away across a full moon, a bird with luminous wings and head of light. sort of thing you might see on a screen in an Indian restaurant in Panama. The Khu is responsible for the subject and can be injured in his defense - but not permanently, since the first three souls are eternal. They go back to Heaven for another vessel. The four remaining souls must take their chances with the subject in the land of the dead. Number four is Ba, the Heart, often treacherous. This is a hawk's body with your face on it, shrunk down to the size of a fist. Many a hero has been brought down, like Samson, by a perfidious Ba. Number five is Ka, the double, most closely associated with the subject. The Ka, which usually reaches adolescence at the time of bodily death, is the only reliable guide through the Land of the Dead to the Western Lands. Number six is Khaibit, the Shadow, Memory, your whole past conditioning from this and other lives. Number seven is Sekhu, the Remains."
