"Celestial Voyage" as written by Paul Masvidal, Jason A. Gobel, Darren Mcfarland and Sean Landon Reinert....
As I peered into my mortal cup of mind
A molten liquid of penance splashed my eyes

Unseen truth, a divine surgery
Reveals view, windows of faith
The breeze to a raft of happiness
Guiding cue, calmness in a mental lake

A celestial voyage
To reach the shores and bathe
In pools of divine nectar

My raft filled with delusive waste water
Shall be drained by holes of wisdom
A celestial voyage
To reach the shores and bathe
In pools of divine nectar

A celestial voyage
To feel the bliss of liquid
Healing nectar inside

    General Comment"The lyrics to this song come from Emerson's poem of the same title, and while it is entirely possible to write a thesis on the meaning of this song, I will try to sum it up as briefly as possible. According to ancient Hindu thought, Maya essentially means "illusion", and the Veil referrs to the veil of illusion that cloaks us all, thus creating a barrier between us and God's vision of perfection...or in other words, reality.

    Maya is the world perceived but is an illusion of the derived, or falsely perceived. That is, there is something perceived by awareness, but it is an illusion. It is the veil which covers reality's true nature.

    Ancient Hindu thinkers propounded a vision of reality that is very relevant in the context of discussing illusion. According to this, the essence of ultimate reality is normally veiled from our comprehension because of a number of constraining factors that are imposed on matter and mind. The result of all this is the creation of maya, a world of illusion to which normal human experience is inevitably subject.

    In so far as maya is a veil that screens the true nature of reality from our comprehension, it may be regarded as something negative. However, maya is not necessarily evil and hurtful, but also can be enlightening and revelatory. Indeed, it serves us very well in the course of our lives, and is at the root of many of our enjoyments, institutions, intellectual exercises, and societal interactions. Certain aspects of maya have even helped us gain a deeper understanding (or visions of higher categories) of reality.

    Thus, not just individual lives but civilizations and institutions are based upon maya of all kinds. We are condemned or blessed to lead a life that is both distorted and enriched by a variety of maya...and hence, a delusive world of duality."

    General CommentOops... that comment is about Veil Of Maya actually. Well, for Celestial Voyage here's what Paul Masvidal has to say about it : "This song is about a visual meditation I would do to heal myself. The feeling of the music is about that exploration to the inner worlds."

    General CommentFocus is such a brilliant album; so very true that you can easily call this music. It is filled with different moods and intensities and takes the listener on a journey.

    I've been debating with fellow songmeanings users who have been sucking up to a Carrie Underwood song; Carrie Underwood cannot write songs, she can only release product, and yet so many defend her and call her "brilliant" and even "socially relevant." Phht. If Carrie Underwood can release actual music that does not rely on "hooks" or "popularity" then I might change my views on life and start believing that Superman is our god.
