I am with you,
Eyes they have, but they see not, ears they have, but they do not hear, a mouth they have, but they can not speak...And those worshiping them will become just like them. You did justice to this piece Rick.
The sleep is still in my eyes
The dream is still in my head
I heave a sigh and sadly smile
And lie a while in bed
I wish that it might come to pass
Not fade like all my dreams
Just think of what my life might be
In a world like I have seen
I don`t think I can carry on
Carry on this cold and empty life
My spirits are low in the depths of despair
My lifeblood spills over
"...I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last."
2112 part VI: Soliloquy
The protagonist returns to the cave and broods for "days". He imagines "what my life might be in a world like I have seen", and now considers life under the Federation "cold and empty", with his spirits "low in the depths of despair". He resolves that, in order to "pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last", he must take his own life— his narrative ending as "my life blood spills over."
One of the most famous soliloquies in literature is Hamlet's where he contemplates suicide, saying "To sleep, perchance to dream". The title of the song movement indicates a similar struggle where the protagonist chooses the liberation of spirit "that with my death I may pass into the world of my dreams, and know peace at last".
My psychedelic folk version of the 6th movement of the 2112 suite by the extraordinary Canadian progressive metal power trio called RUSH.
Soothing smiles of mercy. There's definetly some sad taste behind this.
I like it
I like it! :)
like a strawberry wine afternoon.
Thank you very much for your nice comment. I´m lucky, that you like my music :)
I used to play this in my High School band while shaking the hair out of my eyes.
Ahhh … . . *Those were the days*
Now I play mostly acoustic and I never worry about my hair getting in the way.
Progress? Maybe not, but it's still fun to think about.
Thanks for the memory
great version chum :)
love neil. love this.
great old stuff,with the full Ricky treatment
Very smooth finger-pickin'! phenomenal chorus vocals.
Smooth bro, keep it coming!
sweet and smooth Justine.
This was a blast to listen to and started my day off right. I totally dig the way you ROCK! You've mastered an excellent formulae for writing and producing a song. Very choice guitar work! ROCK ON!
In the future, they should teach this to elementary students they way they teach Stephen Foster songs in school today. It's brand new but I'm already wanting to label it a classic!
You've got your musical act together, performance-wise, vocally. lyrically, and composition-wise. And you've got tasty mix-down/mastering skills too.
Came back for another helping of this far-too-groovy jam. I noticed that Edmonds Makes Noise noted a Frank Zappa-flavored funk in this recording, and I must agree. It truly is an awesome production. Rock on!
Stay groovy, Man! And Winkled Shirt is right -- I hear Clapton too. Good stuff!
That was a tasty thrill to hear. It's all about chocolate! Fabulous job, y'all -- superb vocals and great guitar work. All fun and delicious too!
Southern fried boogie, a la ZZ Top. Delicious! Rock on!
Some really nice bass runs!
Это сказочные бить в этой записи.Вокалист звучит жарко. Музыкальные ROCKS! Рок на!
Hypnotic и вкусно. Я наслаждался вокал очень много. Вы сделали большую работу перемешивания вниз и освоения этой записи.
How are you producing the percussion sounds? I dig the distance and echo of it. This is a fabulous production -- I'm listening for the third time as I type this.
A bit like Bob Dylan, a bit like Neil Young -- more Bob than Neil -- but the lyrics are really brilliant. Awesome performance. ROCK ON!
I love the music, and the dark flavor, but the underlying beat I found too repetitive and overly potent.
I can dig why both Tyson and Seeger would go for this one, and I applaud it myself -- great job!
Marvelous! She can really hit them highs! Digging that strumming style.
Never stop messing about -- it produces great results! This is fabulous! You know you're one of my all time favorites -- this is a fine example of why. Rock on!
An interesting arrangement of interesting chords -- colorful and tasty!
You are particularly talented at lyrics -- brilliant!
Hypnotic, meditative, soothing.
