Man was written to introduce not only this 5th dimension character to
the listener, but to also set up the Sci-Fi story of Plasticine Man s
life as told through the music in this album.
The pivotal lyric woke in your waking, and you re sleepy
for mine can be explained as follows: Where he comes from, (5th
dimension Spectron), reality is what Earthlings would consider a dream.
On the same token, his dreams would be what Earthlings would consider
reality. Plasticine Man committed suicide, (in his world), by ingesting
a toxic poison, as foretold in Faces on the Wall . Before
he died he began to Astrotrip. (or Astroplane) Eram, not liking Plasticine,
locked all of the portals, and re-entry holes, to keep Plasticine s
life spirit far away from Spectron with no hopes for return. Plasticine
later awoke to find that not only was he not dead, but that he had become
trapped in our 4th dimension existence by his nemesis Eram. Plasticine
Man is foreign to our powerless existence, and describes our world as
an illusion laced with sound . He suggests that sounds and
music are the only truths that Earthlings possess.
