Sorry for the delayed posting, had a late evening meal with teammates from the Nordiks, one of my two indoor football teams, and had some catching up to do before blogging the Clip Of The Day. All done so here we go…
“Introspection II” is the fifth section, and second with vocals, of “The Chrome Lake.” And as is the case for its not identical twin “Introspection I,” the subject matter is pretty much self-explanatory.
So here’s the clip, with lyrics following below :
I see you feel restrained, mechanized, dehumanized
I see you feel estranged, incomplete, dissatisfied
Anything for a refuge, an island for your mind, a flight, a break
No amount of diversion or substance will ever dissolve the lake
Low confidence, you can’t make a move without a guide
Right now should you laugh or cry ? Live or die ? Can’t even decide ?
The choice is so easy if only through my eyes for once you’d see
You can break down your wall or endure all that will be
You wanted advice ?
It’s about time you showed
Another you – the true you
Afraid of the way they will see
The one who hides inside
Another you – let them see
The flame in your heart
If you try you can end your misery
