"Levitation" as written by and Victoria Legrand Alex Scally....
You and me
With our long hair on the gold one
After midnight we could feel it all
I'd go anywhere you want to

You should see
There's a place I want to take you
When the train comes I will hold you
(When the train comes I will hold you) 'Cause you blow my mind

On the bridge
Levitating 'cause we want to
When the unknown will surround you
(When the unknown will surround you)
There is no right time
There is no right time

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now
You will grow too quick
Then you will get over it

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now

There's a place I want to take you
When the unknown will surround you

There's a place I want to take you (were you high)
When they knocked on the door looking for you
When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand as our bodies lift up slowly

There's a place I want to take you (were you high)
When they knocked on the door looking for you
When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand as our bodies lift up slowly

There's a place I want to take you

    General CommentSo, my boyfriend of 3 years died a couple years back, and he was a real music buff. we had a huge connection through music. The other day, this song came on, and I just felt his presence. I can't explain it, but it happens to me from time to time where I can feel him near. It happens mostly when I'm on the road listening to music and I'm alone.

    Anyway, this song came on, and something about it just gave me the chills. And I really loved the song, just the sounds of it. But then later I looked up the lyrics and got the chills all over again.

    The lyrics read to me like he's there, he's watching, and patiently waiting to see me again. :)

    "There's a place I want to take you, when the unknown will surround you."

    That line especially. It makes me think of when the unknown surrounds me (i.e. death), there's a place he wants to take me (heaven? or whatever the afterlife has in store)

    I'm not a spiritual person per se, me and him often talked about our skepticism actually, but since he's died and I've experienced certain connections to him, (feelings, dreams, once I even heard his voice) I believe in it a little more.

    Or I'm just insane :)

    Either way this song and this band are phenomenal.

    My InterpretationI have a friend who has done DMT a few times and found it to be amazing, and I've always been curious about it. She has offered to take me to a DMT ceremony (or tea party as they call it) and be my guide. This song makes me think of that.

    DMT is a chemical that occurs naturally in the human body (among other plays), and is supposedly released to the brain at birth and at death. Perhaps it's a doorway in to the "afterlife" or whatever comes after dying (or before being born). When I hear the song, that is what "the unknown that surrounds you" is -- the experience of DMT. A greater connection to things outside of ourselves, or to nature: "the branches of the trees, they will hang lower now."

    Another thing many people have said they have experienced during DMT trips are encounters with other beings/entities. The line "When they knocked on the door looking for you" makes me think of that.

    Beautiful song.
