In my travels and experiences I have come to believe in all sorts of things that, if present me went back and had a chat with 2007 me, 2007 me would
be shocked, depressed, and quite scared to be honest and maybe looking for a nice police officer to help. If present me could get a chance to have a
chat with 2007 me, this might be one thing I'd talk about:
I believe in souls and reincarnation. This conclusion I have drawn is further validated in the music that resonates with me. I have searched this
site and others for a good, deep discussion of the things I want to hear but have not seen anything sufficient for my needs. I guess in the times we
live in, anything and everything has the potential to be groundbreaking or novel to say the least.
There are three bands that have specifically led to and fostered my Awakening: Muse, Within Temptation, and Tool. These bands, in my opinion, fall
into the category of "inspired music". I believe Matt Bellamy, Bono, Sharon Den Adel, and James Maynard Keenan are old souls, prophets of ancient
times sent here to guide us during Our Solemn Hour (a Within Temptation song). Matt Bellamy sings in "The Small Print," (Absolution
the priest God never paid."
That is a common characteristic of these three bands: they sings from an outside or somewhat elevated position relative to the rest of humanity. They
sing, possibly, as our representatives. **I'm about to take a more literal interpretation of these songs even though I am well aware of the
metaphorical properties of music.**
In Muse's song "The Small Print," Matt Bellamy seems to embody a powerful influencing force in the music industry that has specific rules to the
soul contract or one who is outside of the influence of the music industry. Lines such as:
"Take, take all you need, And I'll compensate your greed, With broken hearts.
Sell, I'll sell your memories, For 15 pounds per year, But just the good days."
"You're to blame, For all the life that you'll lose, And you watch this space, And i'm going all the way. And be my slave to the grave, I'm the
priest God never paid."
My interpretation of this song is Bellamy and Muse have been tasked with spreading the truth by a higher power. They make a mockery of the music
industrial complex while having signed with Warner Bros. in 2005. We all remember this one:
Also, Muse is very aware of Occult and Masonic symbolism and have no problem blatantly exposing it in photo shoots and album covers. Here is an
article that questions which side Muse is on: The Duality of Muse
I have debated this question for some time but have ultimately come to the conclusion that they and their message are benevolent toward humanity.
Lines from their latest album lend credence to this more optimistic theory.
"Paranoia is in bloom,
The PR transmissions will resume
They'll try to, push drugs that keep us all dumbed down
And hope that, we will never see the truth around."
"Interchanging mind control
Come let the, revolution takes its toll
If you could, flick the switch and open your third eye (my favorite line)
You'd see that
We should never be afraid to die."
"I am hungry for an unrest
Lets push this beyond a peaceful protest
I wanna speak in a language that you will understand
Counter balance this commotion
We're not droplets in the ocean
They'll laugh as they watch us crawl
The lucky don't share at all
No hope for fate, its a random chance selection
I want the truth!"
Though this band may display the symbolism of another "Illuminati" band, I think they have opened far too many eyes for them to be here on a
negative karmic incarnation.
Within Temptation is another band that makes no qualms about who they serve. It is
. Sharon Den Adel, lead singer of the Dutch
band sings for our planet whose voice we cannot hear. A line from the song Mother Earth tells humanity of it's place on this living planet:
"She rules until the end of time,
She gives and she takes.
She rules until the end of time,
She goes her own way."
"With every breath,
And all the choices that we make,
We are only passing through on her way."
"You don't have to fear
A new beginning always starts at the end."
She also sings for humanity, letting us know that difficult times are upon us and we must display the good side of humanity or face extinction.
"When we start killing,
It's all coming down right now.
From the nightmare we've created,
I want to be awakened somehow."
"When we start killing it all will be falling down.
From the Hell that we're in,
All we are is fading away.
When we start killing..."
"It's waiting, always trying;
I feel the hands of fate, they're suffocating.
Tell me what's the reason;
Is it all inside my head?
Can't take it no more!"
And from the immensely epic Our Solemn Hour
"Sanctus Espiritus redeem us from our solemn hour
Sanctus Espiritus insanity is all around us"
"In my darkest hours I could not foresee,
That the tide could turn so fast to this degree.
Can't believe my eyes,
How can you be so blind?
Is the heart of stone, no empathy inside?
Time keeps on slipping away and we haven't learned;
So in the end now what have we gained?"
"Are they themselves to blame, the misery, the pain?
Didn't we let go, allowed it, let it grow?
If we can't restrain the beast which dwells inside,
it will find it's way somehow, somewhere in time.
Will we remember all of the suffering?
Cause if we fail it will be in vain."
We would be wise to listen and heed the words of Within Temptation lest we let this whole society fall.
Tool is another band enlightened through means that will not be discussed on this thread
. They fill a unique niche singing about sacred

The end of the world coming about via Ænima
"Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipspits."
"Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this"
And I think Third Eye
is about meeting a familiar Alien counterpart:
"Dreaming of that face again.
It's bright and blue and shimmering.
And comforting me with it's three warm and wild eyes."
"So good to see you once again
I thought that you were hiding from me.
And you thought that I had run away.
Chasing a trail of smoke and reason."
Third Eye has a very alien feel to me at the 10 minute mark and even more so at 11 minutes. See what you think.
As a tumultuous 2011 comes to a close, we look forward to a 2012 that we will wish came with seat belts. Maybe it's time to start listening to the
wise ones that were sent to us.
Please discuss, I'll be hovering...
