To make it clear, I didn't write this. I saw it and found it would be cool to share with you guys. It's really interesting.
Here is what he said:
This is my favourite song of the album. The imagery was quite moving.
The title: Castle of Glass. Glass breaks easy. Castles are supposed to be strong, to defend the people. This reminds me of illusions; they shatter like brittle glass (also i was watching index(anime) and touma's ability came to mind). Our delusions may be the very things we hold close and took refuge in; our raison d'etre may turn out to be lies.
I guess it is this feeling of trying to separate truth from lies that relate to people: how we have to fight, even against the 'currents' in our mind, to heal our wounds (ironically sometimes from the fray itself).
may i suggest word choices that are not accidental:
'flying' could be along the lines of having a higher purpose/ on a higher plane
'silver wing' refers to planes, eh?
'sirens' from greek mythology, pretty & music lured sailors to rocky shores. again lies.
After flying so high, we feel 'warmth' from the skies and 'drop' from our high and mighty places? We realise 'twas all but a 'dream' (reminds me of the dream masters in don miguel ruiz self-help books about toltec culture lol)
'Home' like our dysfunctional families? (reminds me of "Dreams are private myths, myths are public dreams" from The power of myth by campbell, moyers)
Also, there's this point about attachment theory (rmbed from johnathan haidt's: the happiness hypothesis) ie.negligent parents and 'avoidant' attachment the kids grow up with.
'sorrow' is what ppl who grow up in shitty homes feel like.
what's with the 'cracks' in the glass castle eh?
we're all just 'broken' inside, but it's ok. cos it's who we are: 'incomplete'
That is the 'truth', of us.
When people understand 'others'(psycholgy too). That is what they 'see'. Themselves.
"There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."
