Lyrics

Things in your mind
Choices you can't take back
These creatures have made their home
They're here to stay
Things you have done
On the surface they fall behind
But the truth is that your past
It climbs ahead

Analysis

Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of - for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear. (Socrates)

A Nordic Tale

Hr is the brother of Baldur in Norse mythology. Hoor shot the mistletoe arrow which was to slay the otherwise invulnerable Baldr.

Loki, upon finding out about Baldr's one weakness, made a missile from mistletoe, and helped Hr shoot it at Baldr.

Hr was depicted with eyes closed and Loki guiding his aim to indicate that Loki was the true cause of Baldr's death and Hr was only his "blind tool."

Baldr is known primarily for the story of his death. His death is seen as the first in the chain of events which will ultimately lead to the destruction of the gods at Ragnark.

Baldr will be reborn in the new world, according to the myth.

"The first step to the knowledge of the wonder and mystery of life is the recognition of the monstrous nature of the earthly human realm as well as its glory, the realization that this is just how it is and that it cannot and will not be changed. Those who think they know how the universe could have been had they created it, without pain, without sorrow, without time, without death, are unfit for illumination."
- Joseph Campbell
