I am that, thou art that, and all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
This is that

Oooo

Daybreak and I take a glide
Into the pool of peace inside
(Two waves travel by)
To waves and I both travel by
(And that makes all the difference to me)

Life supporting waves of bliss
Mother Divine's precious kiss
Brings with love the light of wisdom
And the gift of eternal freedom

To waves and I both travel by
(... and the nature of man...)
And that makes all the difference to me
(Krishna...)

All this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
This is that
This is that

Dusk time the shadows fall
Into the timeless time of all

To waves and I both travel by

Golden auras glow around you
Omnipresent love surrounds you
Wisdom warming as the sun
You and I are truly one

To waves and I both travel by
And that makes all the difference to me

I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that
I am that, thou art that, all this is that

Jai guru dev
(I am that, thou art that, all this is that)
Jai
(I am that, thou art that, all this is that)
Jai guru dev
(I am that, thou art that, all this is that)
Jai
(I am that, thou art that, all this is that)
(Jai guru dev)
(Jai guru dev)
(Jai guru dev)
Jai guru dev
(Jai guru dev)
(Jai guru dev)
(Jai guru dev)
Jai
(I am that, thou art that, all this is that)
Jai guru dev
Jai
Jai guru dev
Jai
Jai guru dev

    General CommentThis song, from the album "Carl And The Passions: So Tough" from 1972 is one of the best songs they have ever done. The harmonies are pure magic and everyone's voices sound sublime. Carl's vocals in their finest hour. A very peaceful and addictive song. Amazingly beautiful and one of the best things they put out in the 1970's.

    Song MeaningIt's about some of the values of HInduism. This is that in sanskrit is "Tat tvam asi" which is from the Upanishads (an important text of vedic hinduism). See the Wikipedia page below for more info on it.

    Jai guru dev (think That Beatles' Across the Universe) is something like "Praise the Divine guru". In the early 70s, when this album came out, Hinduism was all the rage thanks to the Beatles, and this is The Beach Boys' subtly jumping on the bandwagon.

    General CommentLove the song, and I just about fell out of my chair when I realized the lyric:

    "Two waves and I/both travel by
    And that makes all the difference/to me"

    comes from Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken":

    "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference."

    LYRICAL GENIUS ON THE BEACH BOYS' PART
