    General CommentNo comments?! Even if it doesn't have lyrics, it can still have meaning. :)
    This one is very ethereal and haunting. The chord progression is very dark, then suddenly lifts to a bright major chord. The layering of the instruments makes me think of a film score, this would overarch a whole scene...
    It's a really lovely depiction of the incarnation of Jesus, the Messiah: mysterious, anticipated, hopeful, and yet sorrowful at the same time (he is called a man of sorrows).
