Making money, save my mind
Made up manic form you take,

Close your eyes and believe
Believe that the garden is all that you need
Believe you must bow to your knees
Believe what you want to believe
...Just believe

...OF MY LIFE!!!
...OF MY FATE!!!
...IN US!!!

We're all we have now.


We're all we have now...

    General CommentIt sounds like he's telling people not to force feed him their religious beliefs, as he chooses to be atheist.

    General Commentalong with most of the other songs off Alien. this song is about women in relationships.

    'Close your eyes and believe
    Believe that the garden is all that you need
    Believe you must bow to your knees'

    beleave that all you need is a ralationship and that you must do anything to keep your woman, even bow to your knees.

    don't beleave it?
    try listening to 'Love?', 'We Ride' and 'Possessions'
    off of Alien.

    also the Thalamus is one of two parts of the human brain that is responsable for aggressive behavior. thus furthering the relationship thing.
    one of the couple, the thalamus. creating aggression.

    General CommentI can't really disagree with the love theme of Alien, but it was a stretch for me personally to view this song in a romantic sense (for want of a better word). I can definitely see what you mean after looking further into it.
    I suppose it can sort of represent the solving of a dispute between a couple, and each of them putting their differences aside and just believing that they'll work out.
    I think in this context, the 'believes' would be about what people do to solve fights, whether they concede and beg for forgiveness ('bow to your knees'), or distract themselves with a garden or hobby, generally saying believe in anything that will stop you from walking out of that relationship.
    Contrary to 'Love?', the persona of the song comes to a realisation that HE is in control of his life, not his partner and not the fact that he's in love, the line 'of my faith in us' just assures us that he's not saying he's in control of the other person either, just himself.

    But I looked up Thalamus, and it looks like it's about the senses and sleep and stuff. Didn't see anything about aggression. Sciency stuff confuses me, so I couldn't say exactly what the Thalamus is/does, though, lol.

    General CommentJust found out in ancient history today, 'Thalamus' was the greek word for 'wedding chamber' which makes sense.
