    I haven't really read a lot of the lyrics, but from what i've gathered the general concept seems to be about a man that has fallen, lost contact with reality and is sick of life. During the course of the story he gains back his will to live and fights all the darkness, and above all he conquers his own weaknesses that he has realized is also to blame for his troubles. So it seems to be kind of like an introspective journey aswell.

    I read somewhere that Second Life Syndrome is part of a 3 part series of concept albums called The Reality Dream, and that the third one should be out soon.

    don't listen to BE first. as awesome as it is, it's a great divider. people either love it or completely hate it. same with their new disc.
