Through The Eyes Of The Dead Discusses "Skepsis" Concept and Story, Posts Lyrics Online
Through The Eyes of the Dead made a blog post discussing the concept and story behind their new album, "Skepsis," as well as posting all of the lyrics. Here's what they had to say about the concept of "Skepsis:"
"The story is a first person view through the main character who has a strong, skeptical view on humanity and reality. He believes that this reality is a mere illusion, and that there are celestial / spiritual forces at work that control this world, and the human race. He has a re-occurring dream of the nearing apocalypse, and inevitable damnation of mankind. The dream starts to drive him towards extreme paranoia, so he begins to search for answers to his odd suspicion. He then becomes channeled by an omen that gives him a vision of the underworld, and how it is the final destiny for the human race. He becomes maniacal at this point and communicates with the omen, pleading for his fate to be spared and that he may be granted the privilege to become a spiritual force like the omen. He returns from the vision....psychotic, believing that the omen granted him the power to take human lives, so that his can be spared. He loses all consciousness, and morals, and begins to start taking lives uncontrollably, and drinking himself to death. He is void of sanity at this point, possessed by an evil, supernatural force that is killing him with haste. 'The omen' makes him commit suicide and he descents into hell. He awakes in a white room; confused at first, thinking it was just another dream.... only to realize the room is empty, with no exit. He is in his own personal hell for eternity."
