Songs Written About Enlightenment

76 posts in this topic

Here's some I've found. I love when I realize a song was about enlightenment the whole time. Love the mind blow. I would be most appreciative for any contributions to this. Thank you in advance! Love you all!

Doesn't remind me  - Chris Cornell (Audio slave)

Lazy Eye - Silversun Pickups

Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Everlong - Foo Fighters

Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan (possibly the most powerful example of articulation of enlightenment)

I know it's not a song, just a sampled speech over a reggie beat but i really enjoy it :)  

 


Don't try to become a Buddha. Just be yourself. That is the Buddha.

I don't know if this song is about enlightenment. It's probably about a girl. But the words make so much sense to me. 
Awakening from the point of view of the mind:

Quote

Washed Out - All I Know

I can see your face on the wall
I hear your voice and I call
I feel the weight of it all
Can't brace myself for the fall

In the silence I hear your fading call
In your eyes I see and feel it all
In my mind I try to let go
It's so hard cause you're all I know

You act like there's nothing wrong
You laugh when I call on the phone
Say it's time that I try to move on
That the life that we had is now gone

In the silence I hear your fading call
In your eyes I see and feel it all
In my mind I try to let go
It's so hard cause you're all I know

 


And while we're on it. This next one I think is about death. But it could very well be about enlightenment for that matter. 

Quote

Washed Out - Eyes Be Closed

Inside your voice resounds,
Your thoughts realign
Your words recall to mind
Your short sweet life

Hear voices all in time
Hear the words calling
Feel the wave form now, ride the foam,
See the world clearly now

Rising up you float outside yourself
Find the source of light
You fly home, you go closer now
Rising towards the light...

 


@Be Yourself I'm really enjoying that!
