Existential matters ignite in circulation.
A motion to bend, towards the swift end.
Encompassing a visionary plead to defend.

Liberation of the five senses, the ego phrase.
Metamorphosis of perceptual principles.
Platonic illumination of Natures' quincunx.
Which hemisphere is mine to hold?

Traveler of the x-scape, through endomorphism of time.
Hybrid existence - through spirituality endures the reality.
Traveler of the x-scape, through the gravisphere of wisdom.
Hyper potency - the predominant endurance through infinity.

The iridescence of the solar glimpse.
Through the eyes of Himm and Hippo.
Just another sole strike of the sun.
A stone in the hand or the thought of it?

Traveler of the x-scape, through endomorphism of time.
Hybrid existence - through spirituality endures the reality.
Traveler of the x-scape, through the gravisphere of wisdom.
Hyper potency - the predominant endurance through infinity.

Thoughts of a thinker.
Infinity of numbers.
Numbered thoughts.
Thoughts of infinity.

"Numbers are the essence of all things and the metaphysical
principle of rational order in the universe" (Pythagoras).

Liberation of the five senses, the ego phrase.
Everlasting metamorphosis of perceptual principles.

    Obviously one of their more philosophical/mathermatical songs lyricswise. Only a mathematician or astrologist or someone like that could come close to figuring out these lyrics. But I just thought I'd say, that this is my favourite song on Epic.

    I think the music does a better job of conveying the ideas than the lyrics do. Carefully listen to the music (ever technical, layered detail of it) while remembering that this song quotes Pythagoras. If you don't quite get it after that, well, education probably just isn't your thing. I'm not going to say anything about the previous poster's line "mathematician or astrologist or someone like that" other than to point out that it doesn't take a rocket scientist (or mathematician) to notice how numbers permeate all of nature. "Numbers are the essence of all things and the metaphysical principle of rational order in the universe" That's the meaning of not only this song, but the entire album.

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake_(ceremony) ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Alma Matters
Morrissey
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
