The Seer


(Distorted music)

The sun would rise somewhere through the fog
Nine, but only one would become the Seer – (spoken)

(Clear Instrumental start – 1 minute long)

He sees, he warns, he begs, he explains
What he says is written but forgotten
The revolution brings recognition
But it’s too late, after all the demolition

His visions, he sees in fractions
Are baseless quatrains
The deliberate misjudgement overrules
“Servant of evil” they hail

(Instrumental bridge – 5 minutes long)

The apothecary doesn’t care
“Battles in the clouds”, he says, but none care
Objected and rejected!
Set the saltpetre in flames

The Seer is peered
The monitions least feared
Disbelief will have all shattered!
Listening was all that mattered

(Clear Instrumental end – 2 minutes long)

The sun rose somewhere through the fog
Nine, but only one became the Seer - (spoken)

(Distorted music)

Another piece with crazy religious undertones of course.

This one has me thinking more than some of the others. I am not quite sure what I want to make of it.

@Meena - Ahem,after reading your interpretation / decode of "The Asterisk", I reckon you will figure out at least one of this song's meaning.

Alright, here's a quick shot since I have to run.

The Sun through the fog... the intrumentals are purposly obscure to show the confussion that becomes clear when 1 out of nine becomes the Seer.

Seers are often ignored

I need to look up quatrians, but I am guessing that it has to do with fractions. They deliberately ignore him and hail "the servant of evil"

(Man long bridge)

Objected adn rejected again... the referance to the apothecary is interesting, plus the saltpetre, the Seer is listened to or regarded... shattering disbelief again... "Listening was all that mattered." Interesting.

Refrain of the first verse....

Will look at this again, just wanted to jot down my thoughts on it.

@Strawberry Girl - Well, you are on the right path. So, I shall wait for you to decipher this one as well.
