Sleep Token - Take Me Back To Eden - Therapist's Reaction

What if everything discussed here, all applies to me…

The music is the therapist

I’d love to see you do High Water. So much to unpack there

coming from a metal girly myself (i’m on my fiancés account lol) your reaction is 100% what mine was :rofl: i love seeing your lil serotonin boosts listening to this

8:34 thats what she said?

I dream in phosphorescence
Bleed through spaces
See you drifting past the fog
But no one told you where to go
We dive through crystal waters, perfect oceans
But no one told me not to breathe
And now the weightlessness recedes
My, my, those eyes like fire
I’m a winged insect, you’re a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I’m a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire
I will travel far beyond the path of reason
Take me back to Eden, take me back to Eden
Take me back to Eden
Well yeah, I spit blood when I wake up
Sink porcelain stained, choking up brain matter and makeup
Just two days since the mainframe went down and I’m still messed up
Room feels like a meat freezer, I dangle in it like cold cuts
Missed calls, answered phones from people I just don’t trust
Mirror talk, fake love
But I’ll take a pound of your flesh
Before you take a piece of my paystub
White roses, black doves, Godmother, rise up
I need you to see me for what I have become
My, my, those eyes like fire
I’m a winged insect, you’re a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I’m a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire
I guess it goes to show, does it not?
That we’ve no idea what we’ve got until we lose it
And no amount of love will keep it around
If we don’t choose it
And I don’t know what’s got its teeth in me
But I’m about to bite back in anger
No amount of self-sought fury
Will bring back the glory of innocence
My, my, those eyes like fire
I’m a winged insect, you’re a funeral pyre
Come now, bite through these wires
I’m a waking hell and the gods grow tired
Reset my patient violence along both lines of a pathway higher
Grow back your sharpest teeth, you know my desire
I have traveled far beyond the path of reason
Take me back to Eden
Take me back to Eden

Fantastic video. You need to listen to Euclid by ST. I lost my grandmother who was also one of my dearest friends and confidants back in October and that song reminds me of her so much.

My interpretation of the meaning of take me back to Eden is the feeling of wanting to go back to the place you are most happiest or safe. I definitely want that for me. I just starting back working from having 2-3 years of depression and still do as I have lot of self hate and social anxiety I find normal stuff hard. working I thought it would help but it sort of does but as I was locked at home (I got to a point at I was basically agoraphobic )for 2-3 year my social anxiety is pretty bad and I have recently started being paranoid for some reason as I want to do my best in my job but keep feeling like I will get fired any day now and feel a bit judged. discovering sleep token has help a bit and I’m always listening to them when I go and when I come home.

I went from knowing a couple of Sleep Token songs to relying on Take Me Back To Eden getting me through my last deployment.

I found Sleep Token only a few weeks after breaking up with my partner. This song really resonated with me and now Improving myself in ways I never did. After 5 years of putting it off I finally got in contact with a local psychiatrist

I love that breakdown at the end

The very beginning of this reminds me of Drown by Kim Dracula :joy:

god damn. This song always gives me goose bumps. There are no words to describe vessels voice. HE TICKLES MY BRAIN!!!
