I was just listening to this song on youtube and was scanning through the comments when I read this:

"Counting the original songs from Keep Yourself alive to this (the 5th track on ANATO) is 39 songs! Really"

This is the link:

Just thought it was funny... Vin

I mean, what is this song about? We know Bri was into astronomy, physics, and sci-fi ish time travel subjects. And he said it isn't about the war. Something about time happening, but time not really passing and generations of people. I need to analyze it before posting a comment about utterly nothing (which I am doing).

And also, would you consider this song to have a bit of a country music feel to it?

I remember, back in the olden days, thinking it was about a guy who was an astronaut on a mission, and, came back to earth to find that everyone he loved was dead...or, something like that. I was about twelve, I think, when I was listening to ANATO, over and over, in my friend's older brothers bedroom! I haven't listened to the song since.

Going to go make a youtube run...

It's about travelling around the sun and coming home to find that although you've been gone a year, 100 years have passed on earth.

And no, it's not a country song.

thats very vague.

the relatavisict time diallation effect means that when one travels at the speed of light, time slows down for the "traveller". Don't worry why, not enough space here ha ha.(excuse the pun)

the song is about a man who goes off to discover new lands(as quoted by Brian)and due to the fact he was travelling at the speed of light his comprehension of time is different from the people back on earth. so what he sees as a year on his travels, is actually a hundred years back on earth, he leaves on 39' and comes back on 39' just in a different century.

and it is a country song, Brian said you always see people doing folk/country songs about people that go off on journeys, but never people that go off on space journeys.

Hope that helps.

Hmmm you don't have to travel at the speed of light for the time dilatation to take effect. (I'm not even talking about the impossibility of this, as only photons, which has no mass, go with the speed of light. As a matter of fact, just any speed will do. When you're on your bike, or in a car, or a space shuttle.

But even in a space shuttle you can't notice the time dilatation for the speed is still to low. They have proven the time dilatation by flying in a jet with a clock, when they came back on land after the flight the clock slowed down like 0,000001 second. So, even if you would fly your entire life in concordes you would only have gained 3 seconds of life after 80 years.

Yeah, sorry my wording was crap. I was just refering to the speed of light, but of course you are correct.
