    General CommentOm Nashi Me is a modernized depiction of an ancient Native American spirit dance. The song is divided into three parts: the chant, the union, and the answer. During the first part of the song, the tribe is performing a very specific dance and song to call out to their "forever family" in the spirit world. During the brief middle of the song, or the union, the forever family is receiving the vibrations of the spirit dance, and performing their own spirit dance in return. When the dance of the tribe and the dance of the spirits harmonize, the forever family can communicate to a selected member of the tribe. At this harmonization, we move into the final part of the song: the answer. The message from the forever family must be repeated, over and over, for the earthly child to receive it. In this song, the message is, "I love you forever, and I'm loving you now."

    The song is for forgetting the BS. For in the spirit world, separation and isolation don't threaten us, for in the spirit world, we do not sin.

    "I love you forever. And I'm loving you now."

    Simple.
    Beautiful.
    Powerful.

    Song MeaningI cant believe no one has commented on this song, even though it's amazing and a great closer to the album.

    As far as meanings go...In the Ima Robot Forums, being the singer's previous band, the phrase apparently means "Oh Infinite Nakedness", I guess in sanskrit. I mi Nashi in Japanese means "No Meaning", which in zen would be an infinite nakedness of sorts.

    It's a buddhist chant, maybe made up by the singer, but one that references that feeling of universal love, compassion and literally no boundaries (nakedness). Just bathe in it and feel what it transmits!

    There's no better "meaning"!

    General CommentI was just at an Edward Sharpe show and from the horses mouth, Alexander said (in my paraphrasing): This song is for forgetting the bull shit.

    General CommentIn addition to the "Infinite Nakedness" translation, the message is also expressed in the instrumentals and simple lyrics. This song is beautiful and reflects complete openness- which could also be interpreted as nakedness.
