about

The literal meaning of this song is about an alien who's home and way of life was destroyed, and lost. Now he is stuck on this planet as an outsider and the only solace he finds is the thoughts in his own head. Day dreaming about the life he had.

The metaphorical meaning could be feeling alone, like you don't fit in, like you are an alien amongst your own race and that the past way of life you had is gone. the future continues to shove it's way into the present and the past gets farther away.

lyrics

My world, far gone, it's emerald seas and binary stars.
Vast plains, and calm winds, nations with a means to an end.
In my head the spiders crawl and spin their webs
In my head the lighting falls and strikes them dead
In my head cathedral ceilings sprawl from end to end
In my head I love it all. I'm home instead.
My kind erased as my world would all disintegrate.
I am alone, misfit in a world with out a home.
In my head the spiders crawl and spin their webs
In my head the lighting falls to strike them dead
In my head cathedral ceilings sprawl from end to end
In my head I love it all. I'm home instead.
And some would say not to sail against the wind,
but there's no other way cus' I can't stay in here again, in my head.
Oh In my head the spiders crawl and spin their webs
In my head the lighting falls to strike them dead
In my head cathedral ceilings sprawl from end to end
In my head I love it all. I'm home instead.
In my head
