The Meaning Behind The Song: The Astral Bridge by Mare Cognitum & Spectral Lore
As I sit here, listening to the mesmerizing sounds of “The Astral Bridge” by Mare Cognitum & Spectral Lore, I am transported to a realm of celestial wonder. This song, with its ethereal melodies and haunting lyrics, captures the essence of the unknown and the journey into the depths of the universe.
The lyrics of “The Astral Bridge” paint a vivid picture of a personal transformation, a departure from the confines of earthly limitations and a step into a new realm of existence. The opening lines, “Sol’s domain ends, for distance weakens, even the reach of Gods,” speak of breaking free from the boundaries imposed by the physical world.
There is a sense of liberation in the words, “I have outgrown your Love, that shackles and binds, in an eternal revolution, and I am now ready.” Here, the song expresses a desire to move beyond the restrictions of conventional love and embrace a higher calling, a spiritual awakening.
The imagery of the underworld beckoning from beneath the ice is both eerie and captivating. “Beneath the ice, the underworld calls, as soon as I step over the threshold,” it proclaims. It’s as if a new chapter is beginning, an exploration into the unknown depths that lie beneath the surface.
But this journey is not without its challenges. “Bolts of frost hurled into my body, ravaging sinews, for the essence to rise,” the lyrics convey a struggle, a battle against the forces of nature. It is through this tribulation that one’s true essence is revealed, as if the frost is a purifying force, stripping away all that is superficial.
The mention of the “Divider into equal portions, lord of dissolution, arbiter of distant mortal affairs” speaks to a greater power, a cosmic force that governs the fate of humanity. It is described as offering “a cold eternal embrace, a wealth of oblivion and stasis.” This evokes a sense of both dread and acceptance, as if surrendering to the vastness of the universe.
As the song reaches its conclusion, there is a sense of empowerment. “Step away, for my sword erupts in Sol’s fire, beneath, awaits the Astral Bridge,” the lyrics declare. It’s as if the protagonist has found strength within themselves, ready to traverse the bridge that connects the earthly realm to the celestial.
“The Astral Bridge” is a powerful song that delves into the depths of human existence and our connection to the cosmos. Its lyrics, combined with the atmospheric music, create a sense of awe and introspection. It invites us to contemplate our place in the universe and the potential for transcendence.
Released as part of the album “Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine” in 2020, Mare Cognitum and Spectral Lore have successfully created a masterpiece that transcends boundaries and resonates with listeners on a deeper level.
So, whether you choose to listen to “The Astral Bridge” while working, playing a game, or watching a football match, I encourage you to let its enchanting melodies and evocative lyrics transport you to a realm where the mysteries of the cosmos unfold.
