Heaven and earth
are mine says I

Over the western world
shadows fall
under the kind and dying trees we call
together still, the feel, the breeze
to shatter all these waking dreams we've told
ourselves to keep us free and clean

Heaven and earth
are mine says I

there is a love that sleeps inside
the canyons of our deepest dreaming lives
a shelter that cannot be lost
a name that is so deep and so far across

i know you that you know me
your life is like a bolt of lightning seen
across the sky, so high and clean

Heaven and earth
are mine says I

Over the western world
shadows fall
under the kind and dying trees we call
together still, the feel, the breeze
to shatter all these waking dreams we've told
ourselves, ourselves, ourselves, ourselves

Heaven and earth
are mine says I

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, I immediately thought when he sings "Heaven and Earth are mine says I" is like a meditation mantra. I feel like this song is about spirituality, and how the Western idea of this is different from the Eastern. Especially this part:

    there is a love that sleeps inside
    the canyons of our deepest dreaming lives
    a shelter that cannot be lost
    a name that is so deep and so far across

    It sounds like he is describing transcendental experiences from meditation, religious experiences, etc and how that within us all is God, that God is all around, no matter how you interpret God (i.e a name that is so deep and so far across)

    That's just my $0.02
