I want to watch the universe expand. I want to break it into pieces small enough to understand, And put it all back together again In the quiet of my private collection. It feels like an out of body experience — But something gets lost from a safe distance And now I can't put my mind to rest, And I can't help but second guess Living behind this one-way mirror. I'm hypnotized by this anomaly. Such strange uncharted territory — A white flag waves in the dark between my head and my heart. My armor falls apart, As if I could let myself be seen, even deeply known. Like I was already brave enough to let go. And now I want to generously lose This energy that I've been hanging onto so desperately. I finally feel the universe expand — It's hidden in heartbeats, exhales And in the hope of open hands.* - These songs are written from the perspective of the enneagram personality typing system. There are 9 types, 1-9. This song is about the 4. The Enneagram of Personality is the categorization of nine interconnected personality types. This song is for the Investigator, or Type Five. TYPE'S DESCRIPTION. “Fives are alert, insightful, and curious. They are able to concentrate and focus on developing complex ideas and skills. Independent, innovative, and inventive, they can also become preoccupied with their thoughts and imaginary constructs. They become detached, yet high-strung and intense. They typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation. At their Best: visionary pioneers, often ahead of their time, and able to see the world in an entirely new way”. — The Enneagram Institute founded by Don Riso and Russ Hudson (USA).
