The Skip 5 Show #24: Journey – Tantra
From ECL1PS3 (2011), this ballad is beautiful. From the piano-driven intro to where the band joins in, the tune achieves lift-off, and it’s absolutely lifting. The guitar absolutely owns this track.
I loved the lyrics too, as not only did they nail the spirit of tantra, but I think it’s timely to hear them in these days. You might think it maudlin, but it’s so simple and they got it right, here. Just be here, just be present, and remember we’re all in this together. Check the first few lines:
One light shining bright, it’s made from many colours.
Just like every ocean’s made from many drops of rain.
One soul takes many shapes, to make up the human race.
One fire, many lives share the same sun every day.
Old beliefs let us down, many roads lead to heaven.
One love, many faiths all share the world in search of grace.
Across the universe, the same force that moves the Earth’s
In my heart, makes me whole, wash my doubt and fear away.
In a big deep blue sky on a beautiful day.
For the moment is now, there’s perfection in every way…
