Therein Lyrics

Artist: Dark Tranquillity
Album: Projector

Gentle storm, thundering silence
Inferior force, uncontrolled calm
Vital unlike, logic, chaos, logic

The tone of which his birth ascend
The beat that of a heart descend
Repeating in the infinite
An insight made it clear
Order stormed the surface
Where chaos set the norm
Had there always been balance?
Surely not
Therein lies the beauty

It was solid
Yet everchanging
It was different
Yet the same
So I starve myself for energy

The song around his soul will bend
The notes that in this hole will melt
Crawl out of science
A dreamland if you dare
Disorder clawed the boundaries
We're ordered to stand clear
Was it always different
Never the same?
Therein lies the beauty

It was solid
Yet everchanging
It was different
Yet the same
So I starve myself for energy

As there were no witnesses
There was nothing to be told
As nothing could be grasped
The story could unfold
Superimposed on the elements of anger
Fear, anxiety, hate, despair, remorse

So break from all that fear, hold fast
Exposed, now turn to all you lack
Let echoes be the answers
Return from all the screams
Wordless now, the last attack
So silent, it hurts to listen
Was it always solid
To never change?
Therein lies the beauty

It was solid
Yet everchanging
It was different
Yet the same
So I starve myself for energy

@ShadeofChaos: Who is the ignorant? The deaf fool who blindly rely on his innate abilities to spot and appreciate euphony and pleasing rhythms, the same who often feign depth of character through subcultures or deviant music? Or could it be he; who questions beauty, tries to analyze the meaning, if not to better himself to at least gain a shard of understanding of what it means to simply.. be.

This song is easy to understand, albeit open for interpretation, when put in context of the album. That's my belief, mine.

i think this song can be understood on a purely musical level. These lyrics, however, transcend meaning. We can enjoy and analyze the music, but I doubt that it is to be easily understood on any deeper level. Enjoying music does not mean "Blindly relying on innate abilities", it just means appreciating what one can, and leaving the rest unanswered.

Great song!

You're all morons. Why you need to prove yourself to a group of humans you will never know and sound deep is beyond me.

i get a few meanings from it. i thought i understood the song after the first verse but then the second one threw me off so i guess you just have to feel it. fucking badass nonetheless

@ Oink: exactly what I was thinking. Funny comments are funny.

Anyhow - awesome song, even if just for its musical and poetic quality
by charlito on 4/29/2010 3:45am
its about the begining of time and existance. duh (lol) if you know what physists believe how the universe began you would understand the first line "gentle storm". thundering silence because it is a loud "storm" how it all began yet no1 around to witness or hear it. then it goes onto about talking when man was first brought into existance (evolution) "crawl out of science" (creationism) "a dreamland if you dare". I don't feel like doing the rest right now im tired
by sd on 5/2/2010 10:55am
@ charlito I think you right but after I saw the music video I also think it has a deeper meaning about society. It was different / Yet the same (people are different but were are all people that makes us the same)

The song is about the complete lack of balance in all things but the beauty is the predicament in which human thought is in because having a goal of perfection throws the cosmos into off balance and back towards chaos. So when all is forced to order chaos will shortly follow; it is a pendulum of an inescapable reaction.

č una delle pių belle!
by Apophenion on 3/25/2011 2:22am
It seems to be a song about Chaos magick and about the moment of creation (whether human or non-human), there are also hints to dialogues between Haracleitus and Parmenides.
by a moron on 3/29/2013 10:19pm
yay! lets call each other morons! :D
no you're a moron!
no I'm a moron!
we're all morons! but at least we have good taste in music, so suck it up

it doesn't matter, what you think it is the meaning of this song; I guess transcends beyond our comprehension or true meaning, "Therein lies the beauty", that we can find, see, read, or feel, different meanings about it, is only a reflex of state of minds.

A big "theme" in the song seems to be oxymorons/paradoxes: "gentle storm", "thundering silence", "different yet the same" etc. On the other hand time and change. Pretty vague, I know, but I don't pretend to understand it any further.
