Attics of My Life Lyrics

In the attics of my life
Full of cloudy dreams; unreal
Full of tastes no tongue can know
And lights no eye can see
When there was no ear to hear
You sang to me

I have spent my life
Seeking all that's still unsung
Bent my ear to hear the tune
And closed my eyes to see
When there were no strings to play
You played to me

In the book of love's own dreams
Where all the print is blood
Where all the pages are my days
And all my lights grow old When I had no wings to fly
You flew to me
You flew to me

In the secret space of dreams
Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me

Thoughts & Meanings

I've always interpreted this song to be about people who live their lives in a higher form of consciousness. For some, that may come from deep reflection and contemplation, others meditation, and other through the use of psychedelics. But outside our normal day-to-day routines exist a higher form of being - that's what this is about.
