PostSubject: Design Your Universe (A New Age Dawns Part VI)   Sat Oct 24, 2009 1:12 am

We're blind and eager
Avarice will set us back to blank
Those who wager all will have to name a reason
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain

Who decides about my time to come?
Who is able to break through the circle of life and doom?

Don't look back
Keep on track to break the curse
Take the chance
Design your universe
BIG BANG

We can't undo what we have done
So show us now what we've become
Confront us with our viciousness
And our weakness
BIG BANG
We can't evade our destiny
So show responsability
For we all surely have a sense
Of our consciousness

To take for taking's sake
Will leave a path of loss and strain
And endless breaking of faith can warrant acts of treason
If you can't let go, you will end up empty handed
If you can't control, you'll live your life in vain

Who decides about what's true or false?
Who is able to sift through the treasures from the flukes?

The time has come, we have to see
That total wisdom is in reach
The time has come to colour in the lines
We must identify the signs

So many people are full of hate
While love and light are in their reach
So many people will harm themselves
But life can be so beautiful

So many people will idolize
While their own success is in their reach
Don't forget you're able to
Design your own universe

Find your balance, sink into rumination

Ipsum te reperies

Potire mundorum
Potire omnis mundi

-----------------------------------
I actually was kind of disappointed after listening to this song for the first time, but that was such a wrong impression! Now it's definately one of my all time fav Epica's songs! I love the structure of it, it's perfect! Simone's vocals are the best, and this epic choir, wow. I thought of pointing out some of my fav parts of the song, but then I realized I would had to tell all of them. Wink It's such an epic song! And the lyrics strikes me so much, kind of violently but in a positive way.

My first thought came exactly from the teaser 2(the choir),I was pretty sure it was from it,I'm weird.

But yes,I was also a bit dissapointed on the first listen,but it grows on me everyday.I love the folk-ish beginning,then it comes thew riffs it calms down a bit with Simone's vocal part then the grunts(and Mark's scream,which terrified me at first,I didn't expect it to hear it,I also miss a bit the screamig in DYU,but I'm not complaining much),the epic choir(I find it a bit repetitive but it sounds beautiful anyway) then Simone agin,Mark,the choir,then when you expected a pompous ending,it slows down unto a gorgeus keyboard note,with Simone's calm and sweet vocals.Yes,the ending is my fave part,because it differes a lot from the other title tracks(I like TPA and CtO more than it but I somehow like this one better than TDC).
I find the lyrics kinda scary,somehow like 'the end of the world' and this is another song that has slightly a bit of the atmosphere of TPA.Has someone else noticed?

To answer yo your question,Gosia,I think you are right,athough beforee you posted I thought Mark was saying something like 'BIG BANG' but that was quite hillarious

Big bang made me laugh indeed. Razz Thanks! I needed a laugh at the moment. Wink

I'm not sure if I would say the lyrics are scary.. Well, they strike you with the truth, that's for sure. And actually that might be scary at first as I think now. But generally I find them very positive. Makes you think and realize that your life is in your hands, that you're 100% able to create your universe, but have to be careful with that and responsible, cause you affect others with your acts as well. That's how I see it atm.

Cris, too much coincidences lately with us both. Razz I was up to write it here, but you were first Laughing
Anyway, yeah you were right. It sounded weird to me (well still does in the song) but now it makes sense actually. Big bang as a conception for the origin of the universe. I haven't thought of that before. Razz

Yeah now it's clear to me, but first when you told me big bang I haven't connected it with the Big Bang of the universe at all. Not even for a second. Razz I just focused more on quantum physics as we can create our worlds with our thoughts, so that's why I heard with mind there. Laughing
I shall change the lyrics. Smile

Okay,I'm sorry I didn't made sense for you at first,I wasn't very explicit .But thank you for changing the lyrics .But I actually think 'With Mind' would've also fitted there,but if Mark wanted Big Band then he has a Big Bang
