The hour has begun
Your eyes have now opened

To a world where madness craves
To a world where hope's enslaved
Oh, I'll tremble for my love always

Your windows, opened wide
Your innocence takes flight

To a world where madness craves
To a world where hope's enslaved
Oh, I'll tremble for my love always

It's a world where madness craves
It's a world where hope's enslaved
Oh, I tremble for my love always

It's a world where madness craves
It's a world where hope's enslaved
Yeah, I tremble for you, love, always

    Everyone has their own impressions of any and every song written. The meanings are different for each person. For me, personally, my opened the moment I heard the man I have been in love with since high school, who still makes me tremble at even the thought of being in his arms, has always been in love with me. The madness is the craving to be with him (knowing we are soul mates and the craziness it causes us knowing we are in separate worlds where we have made commitments to others that we can't break right now), the enslaving of hope is the hope that we will, at some point and time, will have another chance to be together. I will always tremble for him and he for me. Love like that is in and of itself, enslaving and endearing. Have a great day!

    This is a very good song. It is a good progression and story that could have been a whole album/cd or hour long. For me, a man who is 31 and single, the song has more meaning then in high school when I first heard it. I think the song is about the realization of a life outside that bag of water we call our body and outside that habitat we call home. It is up to us to go and get it. "Windows open wide" No worries about the past, we have something in each of us that pushes us into the messy world. the world is both within us -a part of us-, and we in it. "madness craves" "innocence takes flight" Whatever you think is bad about you, let it pass and bring the brightness of your goodness back already. "the hour has begun" Seek the brightness of your goodness no matter what, and tremble for your beloved always. "I tremble for my love always"

I think the song is about the realization of a life outside that bag of water we call our body and outside that habitat we call home. "Windows open wide" No worries about the past and an understanding of the messy world, we have something in us that pushes us into that messy world. I like the how there is an an understanding that all the clean and dirty world is each within and an apart of us, and we in it. "madness craves" "innocence takes flight" Whatever you think is bad about you, let it pass and bring the brightness of your goodness back already. "the hour has begun" Seek the brightness of your goodness no matter what, and tremble for your beloved always. "I tremble for my love always"

    Hey Twilightfishy! Love the song too. For me, this song at this particular time makes me think of my youngest baby son (and my other loved ones) and fear for them in this world. Yes, madness craves, and hope is enslaved. But there is a choice for hope, love and peace. SHINE On you Crazy Diamonds, Collective Soul. John 3:16.Damo
