about

This one is definitely one of my favorites. It has a lot of elements that I believe to manifest -in a rather obvious manner- two of my biggest influences of the last 10 years or so: ISIS (presently, a rather unfortunate name) and Porcupine Tree. While Ubiquitous is more of an in-your-face kind of song, Threshold is more about mood, atmosphere, and dynamics. Lyrics flow with the feel of the song, and the end strings accompany them by emanating a hopeful denouement to the more dystopian theme before it.

As always, Enjoy!

lyrics

Lyrics:

All that we have sowed in life
Will have died
From the drought in our minds
That form impassable rinds

A land burnt
By the suspension of belief
In a higher state of being
Buried inside a dream

In the last portion of this promised land
Fate finds the last surviving hand
That holds the fire that began this evolution
And a bleeding heart that demands restitution

Will you choose to vaguely follow
The ones that crossed the thoughtless voids
That silenced their voice
Or will you shed your skin
So callow and let your reason flow
Let it bleed from out of your soul

In the last portion of this promised land
Fate finds the last surviving hand
That holds the fire that began this evolution
And a bleeding heart that demands restitution

Experience a sensible regrowth
A re-evolution at your core
As it emanates into the world
(Feel your mind as it unfurls)

The suspension of belief
Shattered by the fundamental reasoning of this
Human experience
(Doubt turned into confidence)

See the labors of a man
Who truly now understands
Where it is that in this sphere he stands
(Treading further into ancient lands)

Replanting the seeds of our creation
Not needing mystic revelations
To understand that at our journey’s end
Our true test begins
