Apperceptive Mass (ft. Jordan Rudess)

from TwentyTwentyTwenty by Torrential Downpour



Featuring Jordan Rudess on the piano.



new concepts born out of the antecedant
apperceptive mass
the necessity of antiquity to decimate the ways of old and deliver me a percept of reality
the hodiernal mind
retiform; neurons expanding
opsimath has no such luxery as biding time
we are all finite weaving meaning out of this nothing; its all illusion
pain and love: dangerous and magical thinking
depression builds a hole where I dwell and call home
i've unlearned passion
i rear ire
this cause seems lost, look for beacons
peace through waveforms
this cause is lost, please god
peace through waveforms
peace through waveforms
my being
peace through waveforms; flatlining waveforms
all my thoughts succuss considering the ways I haven't messed up
using the trauma of the past to quicken my ardor for the times I have wanted to live
I've been uncentered for way to long
apperceptive mass - finds me a new home
noctambulist finally opens their eyes
the malady of everyday keeps them awake
and accords incrassate tears.


from TwentyTwentyTwenty, released October 23, 2020
Apperceptive mass is the whole of a persons lifetime experience being used as a way to understand new ideas, concepts or percepts. In a way, one could see the collective unconscious as an apperceptive mass - something to pull from when creating something new. That's what the song is about, lyrically and musically. Lyrically dealing with learning from the mistakes and failures of the past in order to form a new and brighter future; and musically by the way we tend to pull our ideas out of past experiences as musicians and music listeners to create something new and fresh for us to play.
