    General Comment"I'd really like to converse with You people, but guess i'm just stupid. So this is my conversational peace to you"
    It doesnt have lyrics, because it doesnt need them.
    To me it has a meaning thats much like the song Believe's.

    General CommentI know this has no lyrcs but musically it is beautiful and impressive in equal measure. As it's called Ocean maybe it depicts the changes in an ocean with a storm at the end.

    General CommentListen to "La Mer" by Debussy. Almost all music about the ocean is based on diminished chords because of this song. Debussy practically defined the ocean musically.

    General CommentAn instrumental but this song is simply amazing. He never plays it the same more than once. I think since the title of the song is "Ocean" it is supposed to depict how the ocean is constantly changing, it is never the same through and through, and so goes the song.

    General CommentThis piece is just captivating. It's length, frequent variations and ability to be freely interpreted makes it one of the most euphoric songs to listen to. You can absorb the slow portions, quick ones or the whole thing and have a completely liberating 10-12 minutes. Even more spectacular live when all the emotion is captured and you are forced to be swept away by this flowing masterpiece.
