Window to the what, now?
Posted by tim in Confused on November 27, 2006

I've heard it said that dreams are a window to your soul; a means for you to see what you are really about. Having that been said, explain this one for me.

Last night, I had a dream that I was up on a rather large stage in front of a huge crowd. I stayed asleep for this dream to sing two songs in front of the crowd: Tonic - Open Up Your Eyes, and I can't remember the other one.

Now think about the symbolism for a second. I tend to be introverted, and avoid getting up on a stage in front of a large group at all costs. Tonic, however, is one of my favorite bands. In the dream I wasn't nervous in this position either. I had fun, and even when I woke this morning I felt like I had a lot of fun.

Breaking it down a little further, what about the lyrics to the song?

Choosing stones... Big enough to drag me down Where I am... People's voice's make hollow sounds Just be quiet... They'll go away Open up your eyes... Don't let your mind tell the story here Open up your eyes... Just let me go It's so safe... It's so safe floating in the glass While above... While above all your troubles pass Just be quiet... They'll go away Open up your eyes... Don't let your mind tell the story here Open up your eyes... Just let me... Open up your eyes... Don't let your mind tell the story here Open up your eyes... Just let me go, let me go, let me go Open up your eyes... Just let me go...

It's a good song, and it does say a lot. But yet I feel like there's a large chunk of all this that I'm missing. Granted, dreams don't usually make sense, but this one feels like it's supposed to.

Ideas? Suggestions?
