Re: What are your thoughts on this tune?

Seems like the best segue on the album?

This was the first studio material we heard off of Fear Inoculum, but we didn't know it at the time. It played when they were posting the release date on stage during the spring tour.

Putting this track in front of invincible infers a desire to have courage to engage the one he is describing and talking to in the song.

If fear is the “mind killer”, then it is a dangerous substance to use as an inoculant.

Re: What are your thoughts on this tune?

Hi, I'm new here, so sorry if this has been posted before/somewhere else.

I was wondering. You can translate the title of this song as a incantation against fears. But might it also literally mean a repetitive series "against" (as in versus) Fear inoculum? I can't help but noticing that 7empest seems (almost) exactly 7 times as long as this segue. Perhaps it should be put against one another? Or overlapping?

Pretty sure that's just coincidence. "Overthinking, overanalyzing separates the body from the mind."

But you wouldn't want to let opportunities pass you by, right?

Think for yourself, question authority ;)

I think anytime there’s a double meaning, it is likely intended. Keenan is not ignorant to the words that he is using. So it stands to bear that this could have a double meaning, perhaps the title of the segue is simultaneously giving voice against the litany against fear (found originally in the book Dune).

To me it makes sense because there are multiple factions speaking in the lyrics. The one who wants to sleep forever, the betrayer, is likely comfortable in fear. Whereas the higher self wants to be uncomfortable, wants to be inoculated from fear, and wants to progress and not be complacent.

Re: What are your thoughts on this tune?

Also, the track itself does not sound reassuring, or brave. It sounds ominous.

7 is also the number of bodies of lyrics in the song.

intro - verse 1 - verse 2 - bridge - verse 3 - verse 4 - outro


7his is just an observation, however.

Art's universally accessible multi-modal ambiguity allows for any interpretation to hold and validate personal intellectual value.
Any detail's significance can extend across multiple levels of explanation and there mustn't necessarily be ranking, causing separation between any of the levels.

Everything is related on some level.

Re: What are your thoughts on this tune?

This track is a musical palindrome. It plays the notes forward for half the track until the held note, the replays the same notes in reverse.
