[Me] I can't move, I can't feel my body
I don't remember anything
What place is this? How did I get here?
I don't understand what's happening
Am I alone?
[Fear] You've been deserted, everyone has left you
You know it's always been that way
Those frantic years, the people you've neglected
Now the time has come to pay
You’re alone
No one here is dancing to your tune

[Me] Is this a dream or is it real?
[Reason] Sometimes the dream becomes reality
[Me] But I don't know what to feel
[Reason] Then I will guide you through this haze
[Me] But who are you? Why are you here?
[Reason] I am you and you are all of us
[Me] I can't think, my mind ain't clear
[Reason] Then I will free you from this maze

[Passion CHORUS] Can't you feel it burn deep down inside?
Won’t you ever learn? Don’t try to hide
Can’t you feel that fire scorching you soul?
A wounded man’s desire out of control
[Pride CHORUS] I can't believe you're giving up - That’s not your way
I can't believe you'd pass the chance to make them pay
You always had complete control, never thinking twice
You always called the shots, a heart as cold as ice

[Me] You are delusions of my mind
[Reason] And so we are, we're all a part of you
[Me] Am I a part of some design?
[Reason] The one design is in your head
[Me] How can it be? You look so real
[Reason] We are as real as you imagine us
[Me] I can touch you, I can feel
[Reason] Then take my hand and follow me
[Passion CHORUS]
[Pride CHORUS]

[Love] Close your eyes, listen to your heart beat
Surrender to its soothing pulse
Silence the cries, gentle and carefree
Good or bad, true or false
You're not alone
You'll find me here whenever they oppose you
I am the strongest of them all
No need to fear these feelings that enclose you
I’m here to catch you when you fall
You're not alone
I am here dancing to your tune

[Passion CHORUS]
[Pride CHORUS]
I can’t believe! No!
To make them pay!
No, never twice!

    General CommentBest song on the album, and no comments? Strange...

    But as great as this song is, I see little relevance to the story of The Human Equation in Passion and Pride's parts in the chorus.

    General CommentTo the contrary, their choruses[?] have much relevance, considered this is the second day, when his consciousness reveals itself, and his emotions speak to him for the first time. Reason, passion and pride unveil themselves, in a sort of introduction.

    General CommentThis song is damn good. It has folk and ambient influences in it, trance inducing at times.
