I've been wondering lately about the poem/song that Kai recites in the episode "Twilight." What could it mean? Did Kai make it up, or is he remembering it from his past? Here is everything he says:
quote:Personally, I think he is remembering it from his past. I think the Wheel could refer to the cycle of time, or perhaps the universe. Another pet theory of mine, is that the song is actually intended to warn children about the Insects. In this case, the "wheel" refers to the shape the Insects take when they're all balled up. They get inside your planet, and they eat it up from the inside. As they turn deep under the ground, the ground rumbles, signaling impending doom to those living on the surface. So, anybody else got any ideas about this interesting and mysterious lyric?
The billowing clouds. The burning hills. The billowing clouds that puff and flower, Are calling me to an ancient bower. I must sing my song. The wheel. Swings. Spins. Turns. Where no thing is, shall nothing be. Only then will I be free. The wheel, it turns, it comes around. It makes an ancient rumbling sound. The wheel, it turns, it comes around. It makes an ancient rumbling sound. The wheel doth turn, it rolls around. Gather ‘round the wheel, my friends, And make amends, and make amends. All this is about to end. The night doth bleed into morn, Sunlight seeping through the dawn, Decayed, forlorn. The wheel doth turn, it rolls around. It makes an ancient rumbling sound. The wheel, it turns, it spins around. Fellows, come, come. Share with me your tired tales, And let my windy words fill your empty sails, As you travel across gray hills and brownish dales. Around the hub we The grinding wheel It makes an ancient rumbling sound. Around the wheel we lightly prance, Around its hub we sprightly dance. The grinding wheel, it rolls around. It makes an ancient rumbling sound. The fickle fates, the cosmic grind, Conspire to leave our friends behind.
