This song introduces the melody that will be heard throughout most of the album. In many ways, the following songs are variations on this song, some more obvious than others. The plot of this song is that the person we are going to follow through this album is just now being born, and the song has a kind of euphoric sound to it because birth is often considered a magical and happy event. However, at the end of the song, a heart monitor can be heard flatlining, signifying that the mother has died in chidlbirth.


Born today
Can he find his way?
A curtain falls
Time to start a new play

Dreams turn to ash
Gone in a flash
Locked in the past

Open your eyes
Welcome to the world
Confused for now
This new place unfurled

Losing my touch
It hurts too much


from The Fake Reality, released August 8, 2013
