Where the Giants Roam / Field of the Nephilim
Thundercat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I can feel your heart around me
Can you feel it all 'round you?
Nothing in this world I know
Can you tell me who you are?
Fantasy of life, around a gold
Way too real, how it feels
At last I'm going to keep my soul
Lay my head down to rest

Where the dragons from? Not in your mind




Somewhere in between space and time
Watching, waiting for their time

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Thundercat's song Where the Giants Roam / Field of the Nephilim are a mystical exploration of the boundaries between reality and fantasy. The first stanza invites the listener to connect with the singer on a deep emotional level. The repetition of "Can you feel it all 'round you?" suggests a desire for shared understanding and a certain vulnerability. The singer goes on to question the very nature of existence, unable to find any clear answers except for the possibility of a surreal experience that is "way too real." This otherworldly sensation is akin to a "fantasy of life" that shimmers like gold.


The second stanza deepens the song's sense of mystery and intrigue. The singer asks where the dragons come from, suggesting that there is more to reality than meets the eye. They do not exist solely in the mind but rather in a realm that exists "somewhere in between space and time." The dragons are agents of change or destruction, "watching, waiting for their time." It is unclear whether this is a force to be feared or welcomed, but either way, it taps into a universal curiosity about what lies beyond the visible world.
