Styx - Castle Walls w/Lyrics

The song’s primary allusion is to leave a castle for some mysterious and compelling reason. Something, apparently desirable, is out side the boundary created by the castle. Ultimately, a castle is device of protection, but if that protection is perceived to be too important to shed, then the castle becomes a prison. The only way to discover and experience that which is “calling”, is to abandon the safety and protection it provides.

This is not an easy thing to do. It’s scary out there! Battles rage like hell and doves loose there will to fly! The translation being that; “trying” is no guarantee for success and may make the situation worse. At least that’s the perception. Hanging out in the castle is the safe and easy thing to do.

Basically, the song is about overcoming self-imposed limitations. Clinging to the safety of the castle is a metaphor for the fear of leaving one’s comfort zones. following our dreams may “seem” like a tough thing to do, but in reality, it’s the perception of difficulty that is the limiting factor. 

“Life is never what it seems” -- of course it’s not -- it’s a Grand Illusion! And, don’t let that illusion (perception) stop you from realizing your potential. Eventually, “every man must meet his destiny” – you can’t hide in the castle forever!
