This one's called A Touch of Blessing, thank you

Climbing walls of an endless circle
Walking paths you never heard of
Struggling in an endless battle
Searching for a higher purpose

Drowning in betrayal's river
The freezing cold will make you shiver
Join the world of greater learning
And crown me king and be my servants
Are you fucking ready?

Misled by beauty
One you rarely find
So loving and friendly
It's one of a kind

Their arms wide open
Willing to take me in
No doubts in choosing
A world free from sin

All the dreams I had
All future wishes
Put aside for a greater journey
All the things I planned
Left my friends so coldly
Put aside for a higher

Misled by beauty
One you rarely find
So loving and friendly
It's one of a kind

One single army
You'll unite as one
A touch of blessing
Which cannot be undone

Drowning in betrayal's river
The freezing cold will make you shiver
Join the world of greater learning
And crown me king and be my servant

All the dreams I had
All future wishes
Put aside for a greater journey
All the things I planned
Left my friends so coldly
Put aside for a higher

All the dreams I had
All future wishes
Put aside for a greater journey
All the things I planned
Left my friends so coldly
Put aside for a higher

All the dreams I had
All my future wishes
Put aside for a greater journey
All the things I planned
Left my friends so coldly
Put aside for a higher purpose
Thank you so much

    Climbing walls of an endless circle Walking paths you never heard of Struggling in an endless battle Searching for a higher purpose

    Drowning in betrayal's river The freezing cold will make you shiver Join the world of greater learning Crown me king and be my servants

    Misled by beauty One you rarely find So loving and friendly It's one of a kind

    Their arms wide open Willing to take me in No doubts in choosing A world free from sin

    All the dreams I had All my future wishes Put aside for a greater journey All the things I planned Left my friends so coldly Put aside for a Higher...

    Misled by beauty One you rarely find So loving and friendly It's one of a kind

    One single army Unite as one A touch of blessing Which cannot be undone

    Drowning in betrayal's river The freezing cold will make you shiver Join the world of greater learning Crown me king and be my servants

    All the dreams I had All my future wishes Put aside for a greater journey All the things I planned Left my friends so coldly Put aside for a higher purpose

    [Solo]

    [x2] All the dreams I had All my future wishes Put aside for a greater journey All the things I planned Left my friends so coldly Put aside for a Higher

    The Inner Circle trata un de tema bastante problemático: como las religiones, mediantes las personas (o viceversa) y no Dios, te prometen paz, tranquilidad, seguridad, prosperidad y unidad posterior con el Creador. Sin embargo, estas mismas promesas te dejan aislado frente al mundo (familia, amigos y a ti mismo), botado en el camino, provocándote una confusión y caos en tu interior y con el resto del muno. Pierdes tu esencia cuando te entregas a un ideal irreal, que en este caso sería aceptar la bendición de Dios, disponer de su voluntad, que Él sea tu guía espiritual.

    Henrik Danhage señaló en unas de sus entrevistas que este disco trata de este viaje que en un principio es fenomenal debido a que experimentas la «supuesta» bendición de Dios, pero que esas mismas personas que te mostraron el camino son las que al final te decepcionan, te alejan de Dios, y en el peor de los casos, a negar la existencia de Dios o a no confiar en nada ni nadie. Otro punto que de referencia que Henrik Danhage apela, es como las iglesias —en especial la católica— han encubierto la verdad. Hoy existen muchos casos de pedofilia por parte de sacerdotes que durante años la iglesia y ellos callaron; por lo cual, creo que las visiones de Henrik Danhage respecto a la religión y a las iglesias -como lugar de reunión con Dios- no son las más alentadoras. Quizá, se pregunta cómo puede pasar esto en lugar en que se supone es sagrado al igual que sus fieles, concluyendo en que todo es una farsa, una maldita hipocresía por parte de nosotros los seres humanos. Si lo vemos desde el punto existencialista de Kierkegaard, estamos condenados a tener una convicción ciega que más que ciega es vidente, pero que escapa a nuestro razón humana, imperfecta, pero que se afana hasta el final de su existencia de no serlo, para que de esta forma justifique su fe con Dios, para tener algo en que creer y no sea tan dolorosa la espera de la muerte inevitable.

    El problema radica en que todo ser humano tiene derecho a buscar un camino, sea espiritual o religioso. Además que nadie te puede imponer sus ideas, las puedes analizar, y después determinar si la aceptas o no. Cuál es entonces la esencia de la convicción: buscar el camino, sin importar caerte; saber que decisión tomar, sin consecuencias nefastas. No obstante, lo que determina a los seres humanos —según este disco— somos nosotros. Y si se lo mira desde lo religioso, también, porque Dios te entrega el libre albedrío para que sepas que sendero seguir.

    The song on its own doesnt mean much, its only the beginning of a much larger story. The entire album tells the story of a man leaving his former life to join some sort of cult, which seem like the answer to all his problems. (This song is pretty much the part where he leavis his friends, and puts it all aside for a higher purpose) Later in the album he realises that it was only a way for the powerful to manipulate the weak, and a few songs in there are very anti-religius.

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."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
