Window to the World

A gentle, rhythmic ballad with some understated guitar work, the piece is suggestive of the influence our soul mate has on the way we see the world. “You’ve conspired, inspired me to / Find a place like this.”—Rob Freedman, Rush Vault

“The composition is ingenious, even if the song has more of a pop-rock feel to it. The guitar part that bookends the song is intriguing and should have been brought out a little more in the mix.”—Epignosis on Prog Archives

“‘Window to the World’ is very much in the same vein as the second track and ‘Working at Perfekt,’ which can easily lull the audience into a comatose state if they’re not paying attention to what they’re doing.”—King By-Tor on Prog Archives

“‘Window to the World,’ along with ‘Runaway Train’ and ‘Still,’ plod along melancholically at an unengaging pace, complimented by mutually unengaging melodies.”—Caleb MacAlpin on Sputnik Music

Lyrics

I’ve gone flying, trying to reach you
You’ve been hiding, riding me to a state like this

Give me that window to,
Give me that window to,
Give me that window to the world

We are sailing, flailing through the ether
You’ve been trailing, failing me with your view of bliss

Give me that window to,
Give me that window to,
Give me that window to the world

A little more than this,
A little less than that,
You’ve got magic in your hands

A little more like this,
A little less like that,
I’ve got magic in my hands

You’ve conspired, inspired me to
Find a place like this

Give me that window to,
Give me that window to,
Give me that window to the world
