Introspection II (The Chrome Lake part 5)


(« Introspection II » by Christopher Stewart)


« Introspection II » is the fifth section, and second with vocals, of « The Chrome Lake. »

The chapter is an almost-but-not-identical twin to « Introspection I. » And again, the subject matter is pretty much self-explanatory.

Here are the lyrics :


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
Shine
If you try you can end your misery

« The Chrome Lake » is 12-minute long suite in seven sections that constitutes the core middle chapter of a trilogy entitled « Entering The Stream » which depicts a life-changing retreat of soul-searching, triggered by a one-too-many outburst of accumulated dissatisfaction with the way one's life is going.

The title of the suite was inspired by Voivod's « X-Ray Mirror » from their « Nothingface » album :

I can't believe I am the image
Within the mirror
Into the chrome lake
The glass is broken
But I look the same

"Yes, I thought you were previously hinting at a connection to the Count. I expect that he helped out a little with connecting people here on ACC. Maybe some of us have a 3rd ray in our system, which helps us to actively share information?"

"My guess: It shows there are two paths you can follow. Which one feels right for you? How do you feel about following the watery path?

Try to imagine that you follow each path. You will notice which path suits you better 🙂"

I know I have a 4th ray hidden somewhere which is not fully harmonized yet with the 2nd ray vibe.
