See … when you fall asleep deep inside a looking glass
and if you have a vision and it takes you far
on a silent moonbeam to a shooting star
When the morning comes and you return
share the things you learn when you have gone…
through the door
Be… all that you can be for how long will this wonder last
Teach… all that you can reach, so much is misunderstood
We were once just children with a heart so young
and our thoughts were simple, let the spirit run
Now the world has changed… those days are gone
but you can still believe and go beyond… through the door
Colors floating all around me
though converting I’m the same
Gone the bones and flesh that bound me
I’m receding from the game
See me, do you?
See deeply thru you
I… I am coming to you... to you
Hey… hey, come what may
Hey… I have a thesis - we’re nothing but pieces
in a puzzle that’s made
Hey… when matter releases and craving here ceases
you won’t need a name
Hey… over here
Hey… velocity eases… when panic decreases
no hurry to wait
You may want to know… where did I go…
Is it cold… am I alone?
You can talk to me… through telepathy … unconventional self
Know your tendencies… love your enemies… look inside you can tell
Your reality... is duality… I do wish you do well… as you may
You can follow me … thru this odyssey… unconventional self
Know your tendencies… love your enemies… only time here will tell
If you come with me… in love secrecy… bid the world a farewell
Your reality... is duality… I do wish you do well… and you may
See… deep inside your dreams and one day you’ll be living them
If you have a vision and it takes you far,
can you take me with you through the door beyond?
When the journey ends and we dissolve
Who remembers then to carry on?
There’s a photograph when we were young
You were laughing and my eyes were closed...

Definitely one of my faves here at this page! Love the epic length pieces most of all and you guys do 'em well!
I'm trying to give this tune a 5 star rating but all it will allow me to do is a 4. Maybe I'm not doing this right. Anyways, if you get a message that I rated this song any less than a 5, then that is completely wrong! I give it a whole hearted FIVE STARS!
Another fine epic length piece of prog rockery with lots of mood changes! Love it! I can hear the Steve Rothery influence at around the 5:50 mark and the vocals are also reflect a bit of Fish! Very much digging your work guys!!!
The lyrics are well written and the music is nice.
Epic peace my Prog brothers!
From beginning to end a Majastic journey thru light and dark.
Great performace all around.Had to listen to this three times to satisfy my thirst!

TCP, my favorite indie band. There are several sections that I particularly enjoy. This is a song that requires me to listen several times to "wrap my head around it". The lyrics are fascinating and meaningful. The musicianship is excellent at always as is the production. Did I mention that TCP is my favorite indie band?

I needed an infusion of prog rock by one of Indies best, and this is awesome. Strong performances by an all star cast. Very well done, as you continue to build a well deserved following. This is taking me on quite the journey, as I have come to expect from such great writers of EPIC PROG. What a journey!
My best to all!
I agree with Larry. Great piece! Parts remind me of old Genesis. Really enjoying this!
Glenn, such a wonderful song you wrote...you know I've been waiting to hear this one fully realized...your keys such an inspiration from the very start. Henry, I don't know what we'd do without your power and magic to makes these things come alive. Jack, the guitar and drum work you did here were central in bringing this to the next dimension.
Quite the honor to be able to keep doing this together. Thanks guys!! ...b
Beautiful progressive rock epic! Expressive controlled playing on all instruments, interesting lyrics and magestic transistions. The first guitar solo has a wonderful flamingo flavor and the palm muted runs are precise, thrilling. Wonderful change after that into a somewhat floydish ballad feel. Love the attention to accents in the drums throughout. Everything is kept very tight and controlled with losing any expression. Henry's vocals are delivered powerfully. The entire structure is amazing. Great story telling lyrically and instrumentally.
