Hey tsr, I love this song! Well, looking at the lyrics I think he is speaking of God. More specifically, I believe his lyrics are comparing the theories of Intelligent Design and Big Bang. In the chorus he says "if you're not really here then I don't want to be either..." then he goes on to talk about "it's all just a bunch of matter...I wanna be next to you Black and Gold..." The black is the sky and the gold is the stars which he says are shining like beacons. He says he feels there is something beyond the black and gold, but if vision were his only validation then most of his life just isn't real. Pretty cool way of giving God the glory right?
