Everything Was Sound
by Silent Planet



 

I sank down the plane of delusion. Itís vast expanses mocked my advances, and
bid me, ďOh fragile mind, you will learn how to fracture.Ē Scrawled across the
walls the suffering saint cries out: ďIs it madness to retreat from the myopic gaze1
that holds us captive?Ē2
Follow me, Iíll take you to the edge of reason. Fall with me3, weíll make a home in
our delusion. I split my mind4 ten thousand times, but in every world thereís no
exit. No exit.5
No madness in a dream6 - no walls surround me to keep me safe. The straight
line you draw for me: So perfect, so pure.
Untie me from reality. When every word is falling from your mouth, donít let it
become your escape.
Make an escape from the monolith;7 scale the lies of material despondency. I
waited on the tracks of reason, but my train of thought it never came, it never
came.8
The straight line you draw for me: So perfect, so pure; so perfect, so pure.
Iíd change the world but I canít change myself.
I saw you shout at the shadows.9
Iíd change the world but Iím chained to myself.
Define paranoia 10 -



Behind the Song:
1 George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
2 Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth
3 SÝren Kiekegaard, The Concept of Anxiety
4 R.D. Laing, The Divided Self
5 Jean-Paul Sartre, No Exit
6 John Nash, A Beautiful Mind
7 Michel Foucault, Discipline and Punish
8 I had an encounter a man suffering from delusions in Penn Station, NYC. He was fixated on a particular train coming, one that seemed wholly fictional from my perspective. 9 Albert Camus, The Stranger
10 R.D. Laing, The Politics of Experience
