Sensual self-interest is a road to desolation, to a polluting enlightenment. But God is willing and able to open our lives to abundance and joy. How great an agony must it be to see the world from God's perspective, to watch as we stumble along chosen destructive paths when our escape has been purchased with the most precious of blood! Yet the Hand that gave all and each their beginning is stretched out still.

This song is an expansion of the 'I' seen throughout this album into the 'I' of the Three-Yet-One. This is symbolic of our need for external liberation, for the fact that we cannot save ourselves.

This song is the counterpoint to Dark Illumination, in that this understanding comes from God, and produces light instead of darkness.

"When you open to the light" is that we flee the light because of our evil deeds. Our heart knows we can not stand up under the scrutiny of the perfect God.

"You are worth" ties to Silver Light, where the reason to live began with giving, and now expands to your own worth due to the infinite value God places on you.

"Spun each star" ties to the testimony of the heavens about God. God's love encompasses spinning an infinite universe around us of wonders nearly beyond comprehension merely as a gift of overflowing extravagant abundance to us. It also ties to Falling and "even stars let me know".

"Was it an accident" is about how foolish it is to imagine something of the complexity of the universe just popped out of nothing for no reason.

"Swords that pierce through" is that human wisdom is too finite to avoid running headlong into tragedy. Human religion will not save us.

"You can" come to God through Jesus, though many spit at the hand of the Lord that is outstretched to save them.
