(Michelle Adams)
Like a mad man groping in a dark room.
Seek the light to burn away the gloom.
I've lost my mind but my feelings are true.
Everything I do I offer to you.
Now I've found you we could make our own luck.
Devour me first or I shall eat you up.

Come close your eyes, wake yourself from these dreams
Reality is ripping at the seams, ripping at the seams.

(Another singer)
Come close your eyes at last and wake yourself from evil dreams.
Come drown with me in love's deep and shoreless sea.
Together we'll escape so take my hand and let us fly to Shpongleland.
Together we will float away, away, float away.

I've plunge along into the boundless ocean of you, the ocean of you.
Come drown with me in love's deep and shoreless sea.
We wander in and out of our heads
No turn unstoned.
No words unsaid.

Together we will float away, away. Float away.

    General CommentWouldn't it be "Reality is ripping at the seams, ripping at the seams."
    Ripping at the scenes doesn't make too much sense, and seams is already somewhat of a saying.

    General CommentThe lyrics have a few big mistakes in them. There is one word I can't make out, but I think these are a lot more accurate.

    Come close your eyes we can steal from these dreams.
    Reality is ripping at the seams, ripping at the seams.

    Come close your eyes at last and wake yourself from evil dreams.
    Come drown with me in loves deep and sshoreless sea

    General Commentthe "no turn unstoned" is defined as an extensive search for something leaving nothing out

    this is very clearly a search for something but from a spiritual standpoint having experienced this I can understand what they are talking about

    the akashic records are the collective subconscious of the world

    any thought or memory anyone has or any event that has occurred in history is stored there

    the mind organizes this information in a library because its the only thing it can conceive
    as real however the library itself only exists within the astral plains

    within the actual spiritual form there is simply a mass of thoughts simply a you hear people and see both images thoughts and a sea of words which are all the thoughts of others

    the song itself is an akashic's quest for knowledge

    gaining access to the records or understanding what they are is rare those who become akashics value knowing above all else



    I am
    I am
    I am

    Like a mad man groping in a dark room.
    Seek the light to burn away the gloom.
    I've lost my mind but my feelings are true.
    Everything I do I offer to you.

    (this is talking about how the records are confusing and mostly what you see inside the records is completely random and its easy to get lost it you can see anything from a memory of a friend or family member to some random child getting raped in a forgiven country halfway across the world.
    meaning she has to accept some of the horrible dark secrets the world has
    this really does tell you that people are pretty shitty and can make you depressed or even overwhelmed by how the world truly exists. as a member of this sprirtutal tradition she talks about her struggle as an akashic

    note the singer is still seeking out knowledge and choose this over the bliss or ignorance and prefers to know than just dream, but she also speaks of how difficult it can be within the records. That is what she means by seeking out the light to burn away the gloom. when she says shes lost her mind it refers to the fact that the records are referred to as Devine and they are a sacrifice in order to get inside the records and gain the knowledge one wants you must give up some value self quality or let go of something about yourself to get into the records and stay within the inner core .the more knowledge you get the more you let go of or sacrifice about yourself.

    She refers that her feelings are still true meaning that she made the sacrifice to get inside but lost a part of herself in doing so, then she goes on to say that everything that happens that she does is recorded within the records as it is within any person here on earth)


    Now I've found you we could make our own luck.
    Devour me first so I shall eat you up.
    come close you eyes wake yourself from these dreams,
    Reality is ripping at the seams.

    (She talks about the new found joy of being within the records
    she is going more towards the center of the records and gets answers to the
    harder questions more detailed information about the past the future anything ever seen but the thoughts she finds in this form of the records are entire random as the records pull her in she eats the information which is what she means as she says "devour me so I can eat you up."
    but she still talks about how hard it can be once you expose yourself to something like this is such a drastic way it can cause you to have anew perception of the world and how you once saw things basically dies this is what she talks about in the next two lines.)


    Come close your eyes at last and wake yourself from evil dreams.
    Come drown with me in loves deep and shoeless sea
    Together we'll escape so take my hand and let us fly to Shpongleland.
    Together we will float away, away.
    Float away


    Now shes talking about guiding someone else into the records
    generally true akashics do this and become spiritual guides
    she talks about a shore less sea noting that the ocean is a physical
    representation of the akashic records but when inside the records it looks like a sea of thoughts
    floating around then she calls the records spongleland


    I'm bound to love you the boundaries of oceanviews
    Come drown with me me in loves deep and sure receive.
    We wander in and out of our heads, No turn unstoned.
    No words unsaid.

    she talks about the certaintity of receiving information and existing deep within the records
    because the deeper you go the more advance or detailed information you receive
    she talks about wondering in and outside of our heads meaning she is in another form of consciousness hence the records but then uses the phrase no turn unstone meaning an endless or extensive search
    and then says no words unsaid reinstating that anything done seen or felt throughout history is recorded into the records

    My InterpretationA great song from shpongles newest album, and arguably one of the best songs from them. In addition, I interpret this song as a means of escape. Close your eyes and become one with the singer.

    General CommentFirst off, I love this song. I love Shpongle! haha

    I think this is about drugs. Smokers often have to look for their lighters, which they use to BURN away the gloom. They close their eyes to wake up, but reality is tearing at the seems. This song might also be about WHERE you go when you start tripping, maybe even naming it Shpongleland.

    General CommentIt's about smoking DMT. Shpongle has tons of references to this drug, the main and most obvious one being the song "Divine Moments of Truth." Shpongleland refers to the strange place you go when you smoke DMT.
