    A song about a thinker and a dreamer that's sadly in ''need to be saved'' Who's thinking and imagining his presently body that feels trapped in it's soul or vice versa. As being in the ''Purgatory'' of this world, who is wondering how would it feel to escape it for a better world one day. That may be in his[the protagonist] thoughts or in the taught of the Catholic Church's traditional embedded beliefs of 2 Maccabees prayer for the dead souls in order to purify them for Heaven. By which now still disregards one's faith in Jesus Christ]God] and the meaning of His sacrifice for whoever believes in Him would make it straight to Heaven after death. Instead of Hell that Jesus Christ paid for one and only for us Believers not to acknowledge a belief in ''wandering'' anymore where the middleman of a saint's prayer, who still charges you for his prayers to cross you over or get you out of the hole. So wherenow the protagonist is stuck as a wanderer that wonders how in the hell his body and soul would be free and end up one day after death to feel his loved one in him again. when going to his next far away world of catholic familiarity after his time that will be up one day.
