"Volume" as written by and Trevor Hall Marshall Altman....
Rain comes down but he holds the mountain
Yeah, blue like sky, can you tell me why?
Yeah, he sports him this way, a child at play
Open up my lips but what's there to say?

Come play, come play
As the river runs down, as the river runs through
As it runs through the field with all his companions
This is the scene of the most enchanted

I am a drunken fool
Drunk off the love that holds up the moon
Drunk off the love that binds me and you to the most high

Just close your eyes and hold me
No harm will befall you, volume
And that's what is spoken to me
When I turn down the volume, volume
Volume, volume, volume

Time has come to speak of this love
Spread your wings of your song and soul
To maintain internal heights above
Close your eyes and feel it unfold
Rush like a river from the highest mountain
Drink from the fountain and stop your counting

What kind of wine does he have in his tavern?
Oh, so enchanted and sing like a mad man
Mad with the love of a wife for her husband
Child or mother, sister or brother

Rain and the thunder, the rain and the thunder
Sing for the most high, sing for no other
We are all notes in this eternal song
God plays His flute and we all dance along

Close your eyes and hold me
No harm will befall you, volume
That's what is spoken true
When I turn down the volume, volume
Volume, volume, volume

Hold up the sky, no asking why
How can we know if we don't even try?
Hold up the sky, no asking why
How can we know if we don't even try?

Hold up the sky, no asking why
How can we know if we don't even try?
How can we know if we don't even try?

Just close your eyes and hold me
No harm will befall you, volume
That's what is spoken true
When I turn down the volume, volume

Just close your eyes and hold me
No harm will befall you, volume
That's what is spoken true
When I turn down the volume, volume

When I turn down the volume, volume
When I turn down the volume, volume
Volume, volume, volume, volume
Volume, volume, volume, volume

    General Comment"Rain comes down but He holds the mountain" refers to Lord Krishna protecting the Braj region from the rain of Indra after having convinced the people to worship Giriraja by holding up the mountain Govardhana over the area.

    "Blue like sky" refers to Lord Krishna's blue skin.

    "Can you tell me why he sports in this way, a child at play" refers to Lord Krishna as a child shepherd

    "Come play, come play, as the river runs down, as the river runs through
    As he runs through the field with all his companions, this is a scene of the most enchanted" refers to Lord Krishna, as a child acting mischievously, and later Krishna and his consort, Radhe, and their friends, playing in the field - the origin of Holi.

    "I am a drunken fool, drunk off the love that holds up the moon
    Drunk off the love that binds me and you to the most high" refers to Lord Krishna as the 8th incarnation of Vishnu, the God that holds the moon on his forehead

    "'Just close your eyes and hold me, no harm will befall you,' this word is spoken to me when I turn down the volume" could mean Trevor Hall hearing the voice of Krishna and reminding him to be devoted - volume could mean the internal/external distractions of the world.

    "We are all notes in His eternal song - God plays his flute, we all dance along!" refers to Lord Krishna's playing of the flute, which is what Lord Krishna tells his devotees to become in His hands. Symbolically, if you become hollow like a flute, you rid yourself of ego.

    My InterpretationI cannot agree more with bawhite2. I really wish people were exposed to his music. He clearly speak the Truth.

    The main thing I like about his music is that there are so many interpretations. I believe that all are right, for example, Many Roads.

    I wish this page was full of comments.
