Bulls roar loud, snakes move past my feet.

So I'm awake. Or maybe not.

You slithered onto the floor and tried to stand up, looked me square with your blue eyes and said "I can't"

I can't feel my legs. You know you're dreaming, you know that all of it is not happening, but you are not in control. You are simply made to observe as things happen around you.

Without warning, you're somewhere else now. You're in control of your faculties.

Are you?

You can't move and again you say that you can't, you just watch. All this weird, wired shit. But it's all things you've seen before. I've seen before.

Is it that weird? That wired?

I suppose I don't speak often as I should. You're the one who gets all the verbage. That's just it. The sad part really. You shouldn't be made to get the spiel.

And now my lack of speech has caused some rather strange tension. Shutting my damn mouth has kept people in such a pleasant position. I can see it all. People are, for the most part, happy. Hell, it's the most personable I've been in months, yet I've said the least. And I am bad at being a person, right? You know that more than most.

People are, for the most part, happy.

But I'll be damned if the current state of the wired hasn't made it so easy to read between the lines. I feel bad for seeing these things that people don't want to us to see, but then, they don't hide it, they just wrap it up in metaphors and confusing stories.

I've been old I have a strong sense of empathy. That reason why I see between the lines is because I'm empathic.

Would you believe that don't know what that word means?

Well, that's what the wired is for. I can look it up.



Food for thought: a fish that knows the hooks and tackles of a fishing kit better than a fisherman.

Having better knowledge of something other people will use more than you ever will.

Thats what that's like.

Regardless. It's good to know what's up with who, why, when, how. Keeps the spontaneity out. Keeps us from doing what we did all January.

Keeps you responsible.

And aren't you just the most responsible.

Sparrow. Crow.

Bird's a bird, right?

So you're awake. You can't feel your  legs.

I see you there, look you square in your green eyes and I say "I can't"

I can't get up. Or maybe I don't want to. Maybe I don't want to leave. I want to stay.

You can't feel your legs.  I know I'm  dreaming, but I'm not in control.

To me, The Czar is the climax of Crack The Skye. The stakes are highest for the protagonist, I just feel very engaged during the song. Not to say the other songs aren't engaging, Crack The Skye is one of my favorite albums of all time.

As for your piece. It's simple and I dig simple. The Russian aesthetic all the way down to the text is brilliant. The detail and intricate bits are around the border are fantastic It visually represents my favorite part of the album well. The dimensions remind me of a playing card, and the the limited palette makes me think it would make a nice t-shirt. The 7:43 at the bottom is a clever touch, only while listening to the song while viewing the piece did I come to understand what it meant, Brent's lyrics. If I had anything else to say, it'd be that if the piece was made into wallpaper dimensions, I'd jump on that shit in a heartbeat, but then, I suppose it'd detract from the piece a bit. The themes of ascension and literally going through the crack in the sky would be better lent to a piece taller than it is wide, so a stretched wallpaper would fuck with things a bit.
Anyway, that's my two bits.
Long story short, you have a masterpiece on your hands.

Thanks Daniel.
I agree, this song is huge and that moment (7:43) is the top in my opinion, so I naturally felt compelled to do this poster.
I saw that you "fav" some of my things. Feel free to talk about it too, because you did a very cool analysis on this poster.
