Dragonfruit Meaning:
Catalysis / Collapse, Release, Freedom / Pressure
Arcanum represents abrupt transformation; the destruction of the old through a sudden but inevitable release. It symbolizes violent or cathartic change that has built up for a long time, held back by a frail structure that can no longer prevent it.

Its core meaning (Catalysis) suggests the presence of a triggering agent; a small change in the order of things causes a massive, cascading reaction that may seem completely unexpected to those that were not sensitive to the gathering energy beforehand. Its secondary themes (Collapse, Release, Freedom) imply the destruction of an old system that releases all who took part in it from their roles in maintaining it, giving them a new liberty in the time to follow. Its alteration (Pressure) illustrates the circumstances before a collapse, in which massive energy is building but not releasing, waiting for a triggering agent to unleash the forces hiding just beneath the surface.

10s are CATALYSTS: people, ideas and things that trigger huge releases of energy (social failures, destruction, explosive arguments, organizational collapse), causing the spiritual landscape of individuals or communities to radically transform.

LYRICS:

If the Dragoon Destiny should come to pass,
the stars will tumble down.
Fools procuring heroes, more or less
adrift, and twisting in the wind.

Come while you're young enough to say
your songs will never go away
within our glorious array.

Synthesizing art;
Arcanum of parts;
Application, please,
restart.

Caught in the chaotic current of souls,
trying to decide if it's worth it to hold on,
and stay strong!
Charting the course of truth and remorse,
inducing dichotomy, audience, enemy, please!
Ctrl + freeze!
Ctrl + freeze.
