In orbit they pass around you - the memories from abandoned past
Images from within your mind bring unknown feelings into your veins

Delve into thy twillight past, a voyage done before
The borderland 'twixt life and death - existing evermore
Emerging from material guise - an ever-living soul
Thy spirit lives forever more, in spite of aim or goal

The forces of your vital mind deteriates vagely
as you're about to pass away The darkness that
surrounds you fades...

You reach out to touch, to feel the eternal
forgivness for thy impure soul
Desperation fills your mind - approach the centre
Centre of infernal salvation and infernal death

Enter to the plain of life, to knowledge loomed through time
An ever-living certainty where life is formed to chime
Foolishness and wisdom walk gently hand hand in hand
Embraced in darkest universe as contraries blend as one

Fear fills your mind on this ongoing journey
journey to a thousand secrets untold
Credlous at first to this place of wonder
Wonder's so real - it could be an illusion

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life concealed

Your soul now levitates slowly and below your body fades
Your conciousness remains but thy skin will soon rot away
Visions from an obscure rality appear as your soul departs
This once so undisturbed and now frail and feeble world

Brought forth, the abyss now appears - foulmouthed temptations call me near
Dark visions laughing over me - if swollowed I will cease to be
Tempted to this world beyond - eager to break the bond
The sacred promise of an earthly stay - now broken as you writhe in dismay

Come to where all life descends in brimful harmony
Cautious, interlacing, they engrave what they shall be
All bounds cannot be broken or confusion will prevail
- lifeless dark eternity of chaos and despair

Indescribable light descends between spheres
Spheres that behold that nondescript fear
Thought of the sins that were done in the past
the past is forgotten and the present will last

Through dark veils of destiny - Realm of shades revealed
Through dark veils of destiny - Infinite life concealed

Floating through these halls of light, emotions burst within
Pure beauty of divinity enrobes remaining sin
Alone, enthralled, I bow this force, paternal majesty
Freed from anguish, freed from hate - into my destiny

Into the void of tranquillity

Through the rise and fall of worlds, one greater mind prevails
Conjuring new creations as it watches the old ones fail
Eternal coil of time and place - reality and tale
The answers to all questions hide within this astral vale

Passed through tranquillity - aeons now flow away
Claimants of destiny - death can no more hold sway

Forced to return - departure of soul
Material world - arrival as told

    Very good lyrics. To me, this describes the experience of death, the passing through Hell ("the abyss now appears"), Purgatory ("to where all life descends"), and Heaven ("pure beauty of divinity"). The subject is in awe with all the wonders he witnesses. He then meets the Eternal Father, and finally understands the purpose and the workings of creation, his soul may finally rest in peace

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
