jethro you are ignoring my questions again.
Sorry >.< but none of your questions seem relevant to this thread.
But that probably says more about me than Pepper and these religious mertaphors are disturbing me. Damn you Mr Tull.
Haha. I haven't said anything related to religion. Although I must admit, I have had some mystical experiences with this album. Maybe I'll share them in a few posts.
It's not about some ridiculous far fetched mystical interpretation, it's just what the lyrics say, and the feeling of the songs. I think the album flows perfectly, especially starting with "She's Leaving Home." I think the entire album could be compared to a psychedelic trip. I won't repeat what I said in the Original Post, but I think 'She's Leaving Home' marks when the tripper, "leaves home," or leaves a false, material reality given by the parents and their instruction. The tripper leaves the comfort of the false reality, and is free, because that reality was just an illusion. Leaving reality for the truth.
Then, Mr. Kite, just the carnival feeling, it's like the peak of the trip, and the peak of the album. Through freedom of mind (thanks to the drugs), the tripper sees things as they are, and is confused at first and can't quite integrate anything.
Within You Without You has the truest lyrics I have ever seen. Just think about what they are saying related to our current situation. This song is the reflection period of the trip, when the tripper integrates everything learned from the trip into life. In doing this, they find peace of mind.
Then the album lightens up, and everyday activities become new again, instead of a boring part of a false reality. Everything is just wonderful and happy. "Who could ask for more?" The tripper realizes that everyday life is always new and entertaining, and starts to have fun.
Good morning is just like waking up anew everyday, no more false reality, just joy. No agenda. Just life.
For me, it's not even possible to skip a song, because everything is in the perfect order.
Oh no, you'll get Jethro going now!
How come you haven't started a thread about Jethro Tull then Jethro? Or is it industrial farm machinery you're interested in?
Maybe I am actually Ian Anderson?
