"Narayan" as written by Liam Howlett and Crispian / Mills....
If you believe the Western Sun
is falling down on everyone
If you're breaking free
And the morning's come
If you would know
Your time has come.
If you believe in the Western Sun
is falling down on everyone
And you feel it burn, don't try to run
And you feel it burn, your time has come.
And I feel it.
I feel another energy
and I feel power through it
I feel another energy
and I feel power through it
You feel another energy
and I feel power through it
If you believe in the Western Sun
is falling down on everyone
If you're breaking free
And the morning's come
If you would know
Your time has come.
If you believe in the Western Sun
is falling down on everyone
And you feel it burn, don't try to run
And you feel it burn, your time has come.
And I feel it.
You feel another energy
And I feel power through it
You feel another energy
And I feel power through it
You feel another energy
And I feel power through it
Umm Naman Narayanna
Umm Naman Narayanna
Umm Naman Narayanna...
And I feel it.
And I feel it.
And I feel it.
I feel another energy.
You feel another energy
And I feel power through it
You feel another energy
And I feel power through it

    General CommentOm Naamah Narayana

    Om is the most sacred mystic syllable in Hindu, and is an invocation sort of chant in this sense
    Namaah means "the beautiful"
    Narayana is the Hindu creator god

    As far as meaning in the song; I see none...

    I know nothing of the members of the prodigy, but considering the religous reference in jericho and this song, I wonder if one of them might have a theological background

    General CommentTo me this song is totally about inevitablility
    "And you feel it burn, don’t try to run
    And you feel it burn, your time has come"

    We all leave our physical bodies, it's painful, but we all gotsta do it!

    General CommentThis is a great song, dunno if any of prodigy's songs actually mean anything, maybe they do. The part where the drums kick in is one of my favourite music monents ever.

    General CommentThe bit about the "western sun" maybe a reference to distribution of wealth. I went travelling recently to Romania, and the Western Sun certainly wasn't falling down on many of the people there, whilst in the developed world it does.

    General CommentI love the religious chanting... any particular reason why this song's title is "Narayan "instead of "Narayana"?

    General CommentI have no idea what this song means. I just know it is one of the greatest things I have ever heard.

    General CommentThe sun 'falls' in the west. It's a reference of end of day, a metaphor for destruction.

    Since the sun is always 'falling' in the West, there is death on the horizon... and as the sun rises on a new day, there is a birth of energy.

    Death is an inevitability. And in it's wake comes a rebirth. This song is about that cycle and the evolution of form it brings.

    General CommentAdditionally, this is followed on the Fat of the Land by Firestarter... which would be a song about creating utter destruction.

    General CommentKeith Flint as ive read was a bit of a hippy prior to joining the band, im pretty sure i read that he once slept at the bottom of the pyramids in giza, so perhaps he is the theological influence for this song but i am sure the rest of the lads were pretty hip on the whole eastern tradition stuff seeing as they were acid heads for a while.
