    No offense but I've never liked the idea of this. I mean sure it'd be awesome to listen to them, but I would have thought that maybe they'd like to keep it private so in future albums they can incorporate some parts of the demos into other songs they make. Like Dexter said TKAA was in the making for years, maybe this could just be the same with some of the demos?

    Yeah, thats not really a bad idea. But I doubt all nine songs will find their way onto an album.


    P.S. This thread needs more Pass Me By. Is that even the real name of the song, or just something we call it?

    Sorry for the double post, but I seriously would like to know the answer to the lyrics from I Choose.

    It is great to see you around Dexter, I didn't really think you would make another appearance because the tour had started

    My recent analysis:

    For various reasons (like envy or spite) we hurt each other. We know that and we don't admit it, so that "knife goes by itself" (since no one takes the blame), one that got hurt becomes aggressive and hurts another, who after that hurts the next one and so on, forming the vicious circle (so that "knife moves on to someone else") (I'm not sure about this part though). You should free yourself ("self-liberate") from that anger and aggression ("slings and arrows that rain on our minds") because it wouldn't do any good (only generating more hate) and move along.

    If you lose that light (of being free from "slings and arrows") and give in, you are as good as dead; you shouldn't pretend that such thing (we hurt each other, but don't admit it) doesn't exist.

    The motivation, force ("The banner") that moves us to "diamonds and pearls" makes us blind ("blackens the sunlight"), which means that on our way we prefer not to notice that we hurt others, just keep listening to the "voices inside your churn" and "burning the city".

    All of that is the other half of truth that we usually don't see and the song points at it.

    So let's don't come down.

    Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    That's true too.
    And I agree, we need to push Pass Me By more!
