This is one of my Fav songs from Massive attack ~ A lot of people could never work out the film clip that accompanies this song.. It sounds quite erotic and or even romantic( according to perception) It could also sound spiritual to those that believe in Angels when you listen to it with out the visuals.
First time i watched the clip for this song ..I was like WTF? Then i watched again, on a different day and something clicked..(well to me anyway) ,
*It's about facing your fears. Run from them and they only get stronger and worse. Face them and you can beat them.
*quote from Youtube
And i was like Yeah man !
I am all for facing fears...except spiders!! eww I'm getting there though! There is nothing so liberating as conquering a fear.
Walking in the shadow and facing them down, not for the faint hearted and some people just deny increasing their shadow until its unbearable.Thus becoming stuck and immobile or just denying what is obvious..we have all done it. Then the levy breaks...woosh and there you are raw and torn.
Thank the Goddess we are all cracked...so the light can get in.
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
Walk in the shadow ~ Heal in the Light
