Knowledge of evil initially produces a nearly overpowering despair. But when this leads you to look within, seeing that same evil in your own heart is utterly devastating. This is the evil one cannot escape, the knowledge that burns despite our intention to taste and then let go. Instead it is a cancer devouring our essence yet woven into the very fabric of our fragmented existence. Facing such a vision, many run screaming from the inner corridors of their heart, never to return.

My vision brought me misery, polluting what I had imagined pure. God's vision brings me peace, lifts me above the vissitudes of life. My vision shows me the world as it is without God. God's vision looks above the present to the City on the Hill. My vision destroys hope. God's vision guarantees hope in Him will not be disappointed.

On the gifted level, this song is about great sensitivity in horrible surroundings hardly being a gift, merely enabling them to feel pain in more elaborate depth.

"Not right in this place" to which I've led myself.

"Look away" ties to Proverbs/Ecclesiastes idea of ignorance as a pathetic form of peace. It also ties to Finest Hour

"Global bloodstream" is an image of the publicized values of our much praised interconnected world.

"Largest vein" is the vena cava, which returns blood from the bottom half of the body to the heart. So the lower part of myself is injected with the pain of the world just before it goes back into my heart.

"Bitter fruit" ties to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

"Should you meet Medusa" plays off seeing something that will turn you to stone. It also plays off the book, If You Meet Buddha on the Road, Kill Him, and the 'stone' of The Dark Wall.
