"The Big Music" as written by and Michael Scott....
I have heard the big music
And I'll never be the same
Something so pure
Just called my name
I have drowned in the big sea
Now I find I'm still alive
And I'm comin' up for ever
Shadows all behind me
Ecstasy to come
I have climbed the big tree
Touched the big sky
I just stuck my hand up in the air
And everything came into color
Like Jazz manna
From sweet sweet chariots
I have seen the big mountain
And I swear I'm half way there
(You'll never get there, you'll never get there
You'll never get there)
But I will
I will always climb the mountain
Because I have heard the big music
And I'll never be the same
Something so pure
Has called my name!

    General CommentThe big music is a representation for the devine and the search for it (Ecstasy to come). Something which is so easy (I just stuck my hand up in the air) yet is a life-times ambition (I will always climb the mountain).

    There is the suggestion that it is a calling, rather than a choice (Something so pure, has called, my

    There is the idea of not being able to get there. Not being able to reach the mountain. Yet the protagonist says he's half way there (which is said sceptically) but also the lack of believe from the female vocal (you'll never get there). The determination, of the reply.

    Me - "I'll never be the same". Its the same spiritual calling in a lot of mike scott's songs

    BTW mana is the name of the food miraculously produced for the Israelites in the desert in the book of Exodus..
