This is a decent song overall, but has some "sloppy" lyrics at times and I've never been the biggest fan of the "time will flow" piece. The instrumental section is really good, though. 6

Great melancholic intro. I like the verses and the chorus. Good riff. The guitar melody in the middle of the song is very good (a highlight! imo). Both solos are good and fits the song. The song is full of melodies (like the whole album). 9/10

Educated Fool
The lyrics are Harris' thoughts and thoughts on life.
According to him, they deal with how he grew up while he had learned
so much throughout his life, he realized he had the answers to everything
and fewer fundamental questions than he thought when he was young. Also,
stated that the lyrics also concern the weight of the responsibility he felt for her
direction in which the band was leading, which it shouldered
voluntarily, but the rest of the band was accustomed to leaving
entirely on it. Finally, as he stated, the death of his father,
which is referred to in the lyrics, made him feel stronger than ever
how many people depend on his decisions.
The mentioned "book of the dead" refers to the book of the dead
of the Egyptians, "Reu Nu Pert Em Hru" ("Returning by Day"), which
consisted of invocations, prayers and magic and which accompanied them
dead at their burial.
