Providing detailed information regarding the influences behind the making of “Lucidity Of The Mind”, All Tied Up adds: “This song was written from the perspective of someone close to death in a comatose state, struggling to wake up at the extent of their dreams being far better than their existing reality. In the protagonists dream, he/she can create and destroy at will, living as a god, being consumed by overwhelming power, so much so that they lose grip on life before the dream, and end up accepting the new life they have created in their mind. I (Dave) was inspired to write the song after experiencing a dream in which I was completely aware that I was in, where I could make myself fly and create new lands as I pleased. I remember feeling like I was going to wake up at any minute, and wanted to make the most of my new found abilities before I felt satisfied and woke myself up. After I woke I could remember every single detail of it, and feel every feeling I had, almost like it was a different reality that I visited. Though the dream was incredible, I have so many things in my life that make me happy, that give me a reason to live for, which is why I was more than happy to wake myself up and come back to the real world… but then I thought, what if I didn’t? What if I had nothing to motivate me to leave the dream behind me?”
