‘Visions’ touches on the world of dreams and illusion and the powerful experience that epitomises a heightened state of spirituality.
‘White room’ is based upon a recurring childhood nightmare; the manifestation of the accumulation of all childhood fears. Frightening yet fascinating the dream is never forgotten but never truly understood. It is as if we never really learn to let go of it. In ‘Water of Life’ a mirage draws us in. The nearer we get to it the further away it appears to be.
The spirit world may often seem to torture us in the same way. In ‘Ghost’, ‘Seren’ and ‘The Haunting’ the mortal’s connection with the immortal is as fragile as a spider’s web. Though attracted to each other, both endure rejection and disillusionment.
Sometimes the spirit cannot be contained any longer. ‘Release’ is a plea to be set free ‘to go where I should be’. Many ancient cultures call out to their respective spirit guardians for help when they feel their world is under attack. ‘My Inuit’ is a song about the encroachment of the modern world on traditional ways. Many may pitch their dreams in the future but many others still hold theirs in the past.
There is however, a dream that is forever joyful. The dream that a saviour will one day come and make the dream reality. In ‘Second Coming’ the final track on the ‘Visions’ album, the universal dream is hope.
