    I understand that "IV" is a concept album. I've tried searching for the story, but I can't find anything, and I can't decipher the plot in the words of the songs.

    What is the plot?
    Why are the last four songs under the heading, "wishing well?"

    Thanks.

    they're all concept albums. they follow a science fiction story about two people named coheed and cambria who kill their kids. it would take goddamn forever to explain and i still wouldnt get it right on here, but google "coheed and cambria graphic novel" or something like that and it should provide answers.

    As for something with IV, IV is actually their third album. But the last album they put out is going to be the prequal to them all.

    ie
    Second Stage Turbine Blade
    In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3
    :takes deep breath:
    Good Apollo Im Burning Star IV Volume One: From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness

    The last four songs are just a name, thats all. In Keeping Secrets had 3 songs with the same beginning title, but Second Stage didnt have any that were alike.

    The plot of IV is the POV coming from the Writer himself, known as The Writing Writer. Though some of the songs are still from the character POV.
