"Beyond The Invisible" as written by Michael Cretu and David Fairstein....
I look into the mirror
See myself, I'm over me
I need space for my desires
Have to dive into my fantasies
I know as soon as I'll arrive
Everything is possible
Cause no one has to hide
Beyond the invisible

Close your eyes
Just feel and realize
It is real and not a dream
I'm in you and you're in me
It is time
To break the chains of life
If you follow you will see
What's beyond reality

    My InterpretationTo me, whenever I listen to it, feel as if this song is deeply touching on the afterlife and going back into your original state of being. Reaching nirvana, heaven, the door in between, whatever you may call it. The title 'Beyond the Invisible' reaffirms this, as well as the lyrics, "It is real and not a dream.. It is time to break the chains of life". If you listen closely to the song, they begin to chant in latin, a characteristic of Enigma's songs, once more touching on the mystical, the afterlife. Although the latin translation seems to be mocking Christian beliefs, if you also look at the music video, you then think that what you originally thought the song to be, isn't what it was.

    In the end, the song is touching on the afterlife and how you might in fact be tired of this world, contemplating suicide, wishing to go back to when you were young, live a life without worries, and take the easy way out into darkness... But at the end, it is up to you to decide if you want to choose the light or the dark.

    Powerful, powerful song. Enigma/Michael Cretu is a genius.

    It is time To break the chains of life, if you follow you will see, what's beyond reality."

    This to me sort of stretches into Quantum Psychology or to some, Buddhism. Both refer to the "unified field" or being "one" with everything within the universe. Quantum Psychology suggests that everything is perception and that everything in our surround or external reality is literally created by an observer (us). Buddhism suggests the same with the Yin/Yang. Hence "It is real and not a dream, I'm in you and you're in me." There is no external reality. We create it ALL.

    The last line: "It is time to break the chains of life, if you follow you will see, what's beyond reality." To me, is referring to our collective belief system or accept beliefs. Laws, rules, policies, procedures and what all religions have taught us to be true. We were born free but all of these beliefs limit us to who we really are "what's beyond reality." That unified field or oneness which we were all born from. The true Self or the whole Self that exists in each and everyone of us. Because we are the universe, the tree, the sun, the moon and the stars yet our current belief system says that we are separate from all of these things.

    This is one of the most amazing songs that I have ever, ever heard. Thank You Enigma...

    General CommentTo me, the song means you should not just dream your dreams, but live them 'It is real and not a dream'

    You also are encouraged to make up your own dreams, to stand up for your fantasies, and not just do what everyone's doing ('To break the chains of life')

    It's about breaking out of the daily routine and doing some meditation 'close your eyes', to realise what your true desires are, what you are longing for and to fulfill yourself, and not being scared of doing it, setting no limits 'everything is possible'. Just listen to your own feelings, and not to what others might expect from you. Just live your life..

    General CommentSajaja bramani totari ta, raitata raitata, radu ridu raitata, rota- "this is a dream your pants are still on"
    Ne irascaris Domine,
    ne ultra memineris iniquitatis:
    ecce civitas Sancti facta est deserta:
    Sion deserta facta est:
    Ierusalem desolata est:
    domus sanctificationis tuae et gloriae tuae
    "Is this god? if so we need a revolution, like the civilizations in the desert, god has been corrupted, Sion is corrupt, Jerusalem is the devil...I despise the church...do not be angry lord

    General Commentdid anyone know, that the non english part is taken from the lithuanian folclore? this is how the lithuanians sing glees, like songs that are started by one person and when he/she reaches a certain part the other one starts the song and so on. and if about the lyrics.. i think that we shouldn't search for understandable meanings in any songs by enigma, even the band name shows it

    General CommentThe non-English parts are followed by their meanings. I don't know quite what it means, the English part seems like gibberish but the Lithuanian part seems to make more sense.

    If I was asked to take a guess I'd say it was a song either about following God or a song about drugs, the whole following and you'll see beyond reality thing.
