The lyrics in this song are quotes from Twin Peaks, Episode 9 (2002) 'Coma' during a conversation between Major Briggs (played by Don S. Davis) and his son Bobby in the diner over huckleberry pie. The lines in brackets were part of the dialogue on the show but were not heard on the Biosphere track.
This was a vision, fresh and clear as a mountain stream.
The mind revealing itself to itself.
In my vision I was on the veranda of a vast estate, a palazzo of some fantastic proportion.
There seemed to emanate from it a light from within this gleaming radiant marble.
I'd known this place, I'd in fact been born and raised there.
This was my first return, a reunion with the deepest wellsprings of my being.
[Wandering about, I noticed happily that the house had been immaculately maintained.]
[There'd been added a number of additional rooms but in a way that blended so seamlessly with the original construction one would never detect the difference.]
[Returning to the house's grand foyer there came a knock at the door.]
[My son was standing there.]
He was happy and carefree...clearly living a life of deep harmony and joy.
[We embraced, a warm and loving embrace nothing withheld.]
[We were in this moment, one.]
My vision ended.
And I awoke with a tremendous feeling of optimism and confidence
[in you and your future. That was my vision of you.]
(part of it is repeated later in the song.)
