I am not sure how I stumbled upon Dreams by Nuages, but I instantly fell in love. The best music is the kind which puts me into a state of a trance. The kind which make me think about reality and existence itself. My go-to for this experience is from the band M83, but I’m willing to listen to other ethereal style music.
The song’s title is already a great start. I obsess with dreams: I communicate with spirits in my dreams, look to dreams to predict or provide understanding for my future, and astral project/lucid dream often. I even have a tattoo of a dream catcher on my right shoulder blade.
However, the lyrics are what makes this song; it’s what puts me in deep meditation. I listen carefully to lyrics in songs because I enjoy the poetic quality about them. Lyrics express feelings and complex thoughts in the most metaphoric aspects, in ways I cannot explain these experiences myself but wish I could. I have provided the lyrics to Dreams below. I suggest listening to the song on your bed with soft lighting, closing your eyes, and allowing the spiritual experience to come forth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
“Dreams” – Nuages Lyrics
let’s suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream
and you would naturally as you begin on this adventure of dreams
you would fulfill all your wishes.
you would have every kind of pleasure you see
and after several nights you would say
wow that was pretty great
but now let’s have a surprise
let’s have a dream which isn’t under control
well somethings going to happen to me that i don’t know what it’s going to be
then you would get more and more adventurous
and you would make further and further out gambles
as to what you would dream
and finally you would dream where you are now
if you awaken from this illusion
and you understand black implies white
self implies other
life implies death
you can feel yourself
not as a stranger in the world
not as something here on probation
not as something that has arrived here by fluke
but you can begin to feel your own existence as absolute fundamental
what you are basically
deep deep down
far far in
is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself
