This song marks, in many ways, the beginning of the composition "The Book Of Parallel Worlds" (as a concept album).
The song had originally many references to the other tracks on the album (and vice versa), but with time, these references gradually "vanished". A bit like a mould or a scaffold, you take away, when the work is finished.
I was pretty merciless in the editing stage with this song , as it was originally over 7 minutes long. Many themes and original parts that had been there for decades, was simply cut away.
Even though the whole work (played in sequence) gives a bigger experience than the sum of its parts, I wanted every song to be totally independent and not “cannibalise" each other, or lean too heavily on the main concept of the work itself. If that makes sense.
