"What If" as written by and Adrian Newman....
What if I...
Got right into
My mind's velocity
What if I...
Finally discovered
The rules of eternity

What if I tell you
What we live for, what we die for
What if I tell you
That you will be born again

What if I tell you
What we live for, what we die for
What if I tell you
That you will be born again...
And you will do it all over again...
And again, and again, and again

Will you stop running? Will you stop hiding?
And looking for material things
Will you start searching...
Will you start seeking for
Your immortal wings

    Song MeaningThis is such a beautiful song.


    "What if I...
    Got right into
    My mind's velocity
    What if I...
    Finally discovered
    The rules of eternity"

    I think this poses the question of: "What kind of realisations we would have if it was possible for our consciousness to become one with the universe.. what truths would become evident?"

    "What if I tell you
    What we live for, what we die for
    What if I tell you
    That you will be born again

    What if I tell you
    What we live for, what we die for
    What if I tell you
    That you will be born again...
    And you will do it all over again...
    And again, and again, and again"

    This section can probably best be summarised by reading 'The Egg' by Andy Wier: galactanet.com/oneoff/…


    "Will you stop running? Will you stop hiding?
    And looking for material things
    Will you start searching...
    Will you start seeking for
    Your immortal wings"

    This section reminds us that existence is more than just the pursuit of material things in our present life. Having "immortal wings" is the state of mind that comes from the realisation that we are more than just our individual life. Our actions impact not just on us, but everyone around us (who are ultimately just other manifestations of ourself), as such, if we remember to behave in a way that considers these other lives, we begin living in a way that crosses the mortal coil.
