Escape the dream ~ 2020
We know that our dreams are but a partial reflection of reality - illusions pieced together from fragments of what is real. Every glimpse, every shard of a vision is built upon the bedrock of actuality. Within the dream, the fantasy is convincing. Without, insubstantial.
The time has come to move from the illusory to the real,
from the shadow to the substance, from the natural to the supernatural.
It is time to Escape the Dream.
Humanity languishes in this "dream" world, believing there is nothing beyond the material or physical. Yet the true spiritual reality lies beyond what we see. God Himself breaks through our dreams, dreams which lead us only to heartbreak and disappointment, while He bring us into reality.
The music of "Escape the Dream" strives to capture both the human experience and the truth of God in a series of imaginative visions. Journey through this series of visions: pictures of the struggle of man, the condition of the heart, and the nature of reality. Then, "Escape the Dream" and be confronted by the truth of reality.
Perhaps you wrestle with the impression that there is more to reality than we can see or touch. Perhaps you strive against some evil you find within yourself and long for victory. Perhaps you long to know the Truth more deeply than the slivers we glimpse in this life. Come and see the glory of God as He orders reality to reflect His character, as He pursues and rescues His people, and as He claims victory over all opponents.
