"There's nothing but the song and the song is everything"

YES.

That MBV girl is one smart cookie. She may have a ring in her nose but she gets it. She communicates it. She pauses a moment to collect her thoughts, but then the answer comes through loud and clear. I highlighted the part I love. Read the whole thing here.
The only thing that is really important that one person can do in his or her lifetime involves changing other lives, although I can't really give you a concrete factual reason why. Something inside of me vibrates and everything is one thing and I'm a part of it, blended in without me or mine.

I think that's why I like this piece; it's not only saying it, it's showing it. It IS it. When we sing it and we're really feeling it, everything simultaneously dissappears and is everywhere. There's nothing but the song and the song is everything and we're part of everything. It's truth, and everything is okay, and maybe we can touch somebody for a few moments with it.
