The Story Behind The Lyrics

So Close To Heaven is about meditation and our pursuit of inner peace or self-realization. To the Christian it is "heaven", to the Buddhist it is nirvana, to the Hindu it is samadhi. In the 2nd verse, 4th line, "We hear the sound" is the cosmic sound of Om or Amen. Meditation is a non-denomination practice that is advocated by scriptures of almost all major religions.

Biblical Quotes on Meditation:

Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 4:4 Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still.

Text Version Of Lyrics

So Close To Heaven


Quiet moments of deep introspection, we look within ourselves
Moving out past our current illusion, the energy is rising inside, I feel it

In the stillness of the night, Sometimes you can see the light
A benediction from a higher place of love

We’re so close to heaven, So close,
Elation, ecstasy sensation, permanent vacation
We’ll soon be there, so close, so close to heaven

Escaping time as we trip into Eden, we’ll dance into the light
I hear a call from a voice deep inside me, transport me to Shangri-la,
and slowly

We’ll sail across an open sky, Fly higher than the angels fly,
We hear the sound until the break of day because

Spirit lead me on, and take me away
Dive deep in my consciousness, to enter this state
Self-Realization comes over me, the universe is all in my mind
