"Enigma of the Absolute" as written by Lisa Germaine Gerrard, Brendan Michael Perry, Peter Lawrence Ulrich, Scott Rodger, James E. Pinker and Gus Ferguson....
Saloman hung down her head
Laid bare her heart for the world to see.
She craved for intimacy.
Through darkened doors her aspect veiled with indecision, gazed out sea.

She craved lucidity.
Cast adrift from past relationships in her life,
Hoisted up the ideal. This was her saving grace.
Seas of rage that once assailed her concern for the truth

Had passed her by and left her high and dry in her saviours arms.
Across the sea lies the fountain of renewal,
Where you will find the whole cause of your loneliness
Can be measured in dreams that transcend all these lies
And I wish and I pray that there may come a day for a saviours arms.

    General CommentLove these lyrics. There's not a lot needs to be said in explanation of them apart from restating the title really: it seems to be about the desperate hope that there's something in life to cling to and depend on, a saviour, something transcendent, but if it does exist it's maddeningly elusive. Always 'across the sea'.

    I love the way it's integrated with life, too, though, and isn't just metaphysical. The first thing she craves is intimacy, and her doubts and pain are associated with people, not just ideas.

    I also love the consistency of the sea metaphor, and how different shades of it are drawn out. I think it's handled really skillfully.

    Not sure I like the way some of these lyrics sound when sung. "Past relationships in her life" isn't a very musical line to my ear. Same with "concern for the truth." Ah well.
