    General CommentI have been exploring song meanings and lyrics for probably decades now and came across this great song with not even a hint of a comment or thought on so I thought I would actually create a post to share my perspective. I don’t know if I am the only person or even the first person to think about it this way since human history is long and space is infinite but here goes:

    This is for you Neil:

    On the topic of the Deep Forbidden Lake...

    I take a decidedly chemical and quantum mechanical interpretation of this song as a perception of reality through the senses of the nervous system and the neurochemical interaction of mind to brain. In a sense it supposes a view into an existence on pause like it was always there but the figure who made it real had gone away. A lot of reality can be described energetically by the jablonski-Perrin excited state diagram. It is kind of ironic that the sound of this song is this bluesy country backbone but lyrically describes a very fast perturbed state of being. Like a ghost, energetically functioning on a higher level but becomes perspectively aware to someone or something functioning on a nearly familiar energetic state.
    The potential energy well is the deep forbidden lake. It is strange to be on the surface. You are neither energetically excited nor defuse. But you are perceiving your reality while somewhere your mind is betwixt and between in some energetic state.
    As an aside I don’t want credit for much but I do lay claim to this description for it is based on my experience but it is for you Neil for maybe you had the same experience on another plane. It is like the lyric about telling you what I’ve learned.

    There is an aspect to this song that is like the nature of light...described like an echo that I perceive like particle and wave interaction. The thing that I have the hardest time relating to are the happy creatures that seem to live boundless and free from this description of their reality. But yet there is a great beauty and depth in having this understanding and relationship to existence.

    Anyway, much respect Neil
