"The Seance" as written by and Steven John Wilson....
Under gas light the joining of hands
Chanting a name over and over

A table tilts the circle is broken
Doubting no more
They pay what they owe her

Disembodied a luminous hand
Holding the air, passing the current
A voice is channeled, a rope is uncoiled
Flicker the light
And someone is here

We go following sorrow to feel your
Blood spilling out of the reeds there
Give me a sign I can breathe air
Blood flowing out of the stream there

(give me something new please, something I can love)

    General CommentI've always thought this was about the family that discovered the body in the river during Octane Twisted. I think they turn to a seance to try and contact the spirit of the dead girl, attempting to find how she died.

    My InterpretationThis must be the song about a cult that ends up killing its members or something.

    General CommentNah, it's about a spiritism session (that's what the name of the song means, too). They do make a contact with the ghost, that's for sure. Maybe it didn't end up being what they wished it would be like.

    General CommentI think its about a group of friends and family mourning the people who died in an accident (from the previous song octane twisted). When they are holding the candle light vigil the family is communicating with the dead.

    No idea what: (Give me something new, please... something I can love) Is all about. Its also in the octane twisted song right before.
