Warm invitation
To breathe in my first breath
Shoulders sure are heavy
With these wings about to stretch

I'm waking up
Clinging to the there afters
Sensing summer winds are coming in
When just above me
A hundred of my brothers
Are ready for this journey to begin

And we're off, heading how now
And in my body there is buried some strange memory
Of how to fly, of what to follow
And it will lead me to the origin of me
Pre-history

How long was I asleep?
All these colors opening like bright kaleidoscopes
Of waking dreams you won't believe the view
I'm taking a dive into the crystal river
I'm gonna find a friend who gives
The sweetest kiss creation ever knew

Oh and when she blushes all the secrets in her eyes
Become the songs of old and wiser ones
Who flew this path before me
And if you hear it too, then why not sing it?
Pick up where they left off, wing it
The rest of them will marvel at the sky

And we're off, heading how now
And in my body there is buried some strange memory
Of how to fly, of what to follow
And it will lead me to the origin of me
Pre-history

And in my body there is buried some strange memory
Of how to fly, of what to follow
And it will lead me to the origin of me
Pre-history

    My InterpretationPersonally, I have always viewed this song as someone who is entering the gay community (or whatever community you wish to imagine I suppose) for the first time. The first stanza sounds to me to be about waking up, i.e. coming out of the closet and finding your own identity. After that he sees hundred of his brother all flying on one journey, and eventually starts singing about the ones who flew it before him. I interpret that as seeing how large & expansive the community is, as well as it's history. There have been gay communities in Western Society for centuries, though you wouldn't know unless you looked. The rest I think is describing what it feels like to be entering all of it, such as the new perspective it gives you on the world (she blushes stanza) and also the meaning it gives himself as a person. Hearing this song puts me at ease because I no longer feel alone, now or in the past. Even in the gay community, life has always ever been moving forward and we all are a part of that movement, however way we like to be. I LOVE this song!!
