I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through.
The bridge of the song, where it takes an uplifting, wanted change of rhythms to change the feel of the song for a fleeting moment, before starting of the solo guitar riff
4:06 - 5:04
Progressive increase in drumming frequency, and guitar rhythm tempo, to the point of climax where there are a couple of guitar rhythms with a combination of effects mixed in stereo
5:04 - 6:00
See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me
The last chorus of the song with heightened beats, rhythms, strong emotional ending, with voice fading away, and a couple of guitar / drum death impulses
Genre: Serious, abstract, psychedelic
Plot Idea: The lyrics of the song constantly refer to 46 & 2, which is an indirect reference to the Jungian theory that there are three different types of human beings that perceive reality differently, having different chromosome compositions. One with the '42 & 2' composition are connected to a single consciousness and are present in the backward aboriginal people. Our level is of 44 & 2 chromosomes and we are the stepping stone intermediary of a new evolutionary stage in the future of 46 & 2, when we will reach a new level of consciousness.

My plot tells the story of how a cave man finds a fire (enlightenment) and walks through it to an evolutionary second step into his future (the present), and then goes through another stage of painful catharsis and change, and finally enters the future as the new evolved human being with new a creative and intellectual strength, and will power. It makes use of an abstract theme to portray the psychedelic nature of the rock song, 'the shadow' from the lyrics playing an integral part in the video taking the man through his various stages and selves, teaching and testing him and rewarding him with supernatural powers at the end.
Plot: A cave man, finds a fire in the woods at a distance, goes towards it. The fire keeps on behaving erratically, like making different shapes, like a human brain, his DNA structure, sparks traveling through it like they travel in the human brain. The man is bedazzled and afraid. The man's shadow, on coming near the flame, behaves strangely and instead of going away from the light travels towards it reaching out & touching the flame. The flame then turns into a portal, a form of a mirror into the future, which in this case is our present.
