Video learning to fly pink floyd lyrics

I heard this song in a crisis time in my life and it brought me to tears about how closely and perfect it told about my feelings. This song is about overcoming your fears, whatever it might be (in relationship, in choosing your direction in life, in stopping being abused, in standing up against oppression, whatever…), because, deep inside all these problems is the desire for the human being to be free. For the human soul and spirit, this abstract energy, living in each us, given by God, nature Cosmos (whatever you call it), to be FREE. D-o y-o-u u-n-d-e-r-s-t-a-n-d? 🙂

The following is my interpretation, in the hard point of my life:

a fatal attraction holding me fast, how can I escape this irresistable grasp? (your own weaknesses holding you back, fatal, but still attractive, a fight with yourself)

can’t keep my eyes from the circling sky tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I (but deep inside that my soul is free and that I am born to raise in the sky, to the sun) (note the word “eyes” it will have a meaning later)

ice is forming on the tips of my wings unheeded warnings, I tought I thought of everything no navigator to guide my way home unladened, empty and turned to stone (this is about the first flight, I am falling down with ice on my wings, despite me being sure about everything, lost all lights and lifeforce is leaving me “turned to stone”)

a soul in tension that’s learning to fly condition grounded but determined to try can’t keep my eyes from the -circling- skies tongue-tied & twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I (“soul in tension” says everything. This is how the deep worries and fears inside yourself are called. Your soul wants to be free and something is holding you back. Notice again the “eyes”)

above the planet on a wing and a prayer my grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air across the clouds I see my shadow fly out of the corner of my watering eye (I have finally raised in the sky, even above the planet and I need a prayer (a power of praying to the higher God, energy) to keep there. But I am almost unseen, only the halo and vapour. I have ascended.)

a dream unthreatened by the morning light (anyone who has felt the feeling of being afraid to wake up, because it will bring only pain, will understand me) could blow this soul right through the roof of the night (this sounds magic, as it is. You can go “behind” the night. Physically impossible but possible by your soul. So the night (depression) what surrounds you, can be broken by your SPIRIT)

there’s no sensation to compare with this suspended animation, a state of bliss (a realization that you are now free from your problems. Forever. You have made it. Your soul, the force in you has made it) can’t keep my mind from the circling sky (notice the word “MIND” in difference from the “eyes” previously – your MIND, not your eyes, is what “sees”, what creates reality, your eyes only see, your ears only hear. You are there, in your head and your mind define, what the world is like for you)

I really hope that some “soul in tension” will understand what I just wrote and come to the same realizations as I did. This is most energetically charged song, I have ever heard.
