"Mystery Of One Spirit" as written by and Matthew Bachand Brian Fair....
Inspiration is the light of the mind
Revelation the meaning behind
Clouds of sacred incense allow us to rise
Cast away all our earthly ties

Without a veil of tears
Journey of the Magi cascading
Fulfillment of our mind
Your cowardice is fuel for this deception
Your vanity
Destruction of your soul

Cannot defend lies without end
I’ll smash your trend
Living to be free

Cannot defend
Lies without end
I will pretend no more!

Smashing through the doors of perception
Realization of a world beyond the tangible
Ancestral wisdom
Timeless inspiration
The mystery of one spirit
I create the light
I create the darkness
Author alike of prosperity and woe
Their god is but a symptom of their power
Another tool they use to dominate and control

    General Commenti think that "mystery of one spirit" practically means "the mystery of God". Brian makes multiple references to a "divine" theme.

    "I create the light
    I create the darkness
    Author alike of prosperity and woe
    Their god is but a symptom of their power
    Another tool they use to dominate and control

    God created light and dark, and is the cause of prosperity and woe. The last lines are self explanatory. People have used God to control people. People still do. Go shadows fall! THREADS KICKS ASS

    General CommentIt is about destruction of our ego that hold us blinded by lies and attainig realization.
    One of the paths to acomplish this is like he said in second verse "Journey of the Magi".

    Beautiful song.
