about

MAYA

Another of my early songs, arising out of an image I painted of a woman flying through the sky with a mermaid’s tail! I thought I had invented her, and this song was an attempt to explain to myself what she might symbolize. Of course I have discovered since then that the flying mermaid is an image firmly entrenched in the human collective unconscious as a symbol of transformation or perhaps seduction or distraction!
The word MAYA From Wikipedia …….” The Sanskrit word Maya, in Indian Religions has multiple meanings, usually quoted as "illusion", centered on the fact that we do not experience the environment itself, but rather a projection of it, which we create within ourselves

lyrics

MAYA Copyright 2011 C.Blundell

With this tail I move in the deep
Breathe the water dream the dream
All smooth muscle bone and blood
I taste the salt I clasp my young
Sing the songs of pain and love
And dance the dance of Maya

With these wings I rise in the air
I could fly higher but I do not dare
Currents of thought where the air is cold
Thinking that I am alone
Far horizons curve away
These boundaries of Maya

At the Crossroads where Angels fly
I am the dreamer I dream my life
In this moment I choose to change my mind
I see we are blessed by our bonds in time

Love is the leveler love is light
Love is the doorway love is might
The voice of Truth is hard to hear
She speaks like silence to noisy Fear
Till the time we all are one
I’ll dance the dance
Dream the dream
Dance the dance of Maya
Maya Maya
