Introspection is a nearly 38-minute track in 11+1 sections (if you take a closer look at the cover of the album where the twelve hours of a clock feature…) that tells the story of a man who is tortured by memories of the past. The inner voices are let loose (Pandora’s Box). The rainy day exacerbates the gloominess (Alienated) and the character spins a vinyl. “With the right music, you either forget everything or you remember everything” they say and the case is that memories come in torrents (Immersed). Οld, nagging recollections (The Thorn in Me) resurface and finally the character is sucked by a whirlpool, recounting their life (My Stories). The optimistic prospect (A Prospect of a Blooming Life), the feeling like “coming home” (Home) is gradually replaced by vague, forgotten, yet ever-present memories of loss and disappointment that get clearer and clearer in their head (It All Becomes Clear) and recounting these stories (Narrative) brings our character to their limit (On the Borderline) who makes a promise to set everything right but “you can’t escape the past, no matter how much you want to” and the mental residuals in their head prevent them from keeping their promise (A Promise Unkept/Mental Residuals).
