Dreamer Deceiver Lyrics

Standing by my window, breathing summer breeze
Saw a figure floating, 'neath the willow tree
Asked us if we were happy, we said we didn't know
Took us by the hands and up we go

We followed the dreamer through the purple hazy clouds

    "Vibrating constantly" refers to the Kabylion and seven elements - vibration, rhythm, mind, cause and effect, gender, opposition, recursiveness - practised by gnostics before the introduction of organised religion. It would be a good theme for the band to return to in their lyrics.

    This song is about the realisation that the hippy dream and lifestyle of the 1970s was a lie based around drug and alcohol consumption and "Free love".
    The first part is "Dreamer" it is describing the naive assumption of the hippys that these things were changing lives in a positive way, that flower power ideal made a difference to the world.
    The second part "Deceiver" is a turning point in the song, it gets a lot angrier and is about waking up to the fact that although these things felt good at the time, they were deceiving themselves into thinking they were changing anything in the world.
    Theres mention of nuclear bombs and references to war nearing the end of the song, this is Judas Priest saying, just because we forgot about the evils in the world, lost in a drug, drink and free love haze and the hippy ideal, the problems of the world had not disappeared, we had just forgotten about them and deceived ourselves into thinking we were really making any difference at all.
