    Ok now listen to the song closely you'll notice that the timing of the main riff is 9-8-7, the 16th step of the Fibonacci sequence, as well as the syllabic rhythm of the lyrics follows this sequence as well. The meaning suggests to live life much like the Fibonacci spiral, constantly growing and spiraling out, exploring and reaching toward the unknown, instead of living in a narrow-minded; linear way, live laterally, like the Fibonacci spiral; always developing, flourishing, and thriving.

    Mainly thes lyrics are about the birth of life in its creation and the spiral that we ride and move our selfs to the rythem of life as we become infants in life of humanity and letting your body emerge its self with your mind and body and to birth its self with such pacific form and be birthed with a uniqe talent not like other humans. Like he say he is describing himself as he was being made in the wome of his mother and becoming who he is in life. He is born with a talent to describe a messege in lyrics such as this he can feel rythems that not many peapole can feel that is what this song is about and I'm only 13 2009.
