Enlightenment
Sun Ra Lyrics


The Sound of Joy is Enlightenment
Space, Fire, Truth is Enlightenment
Space Fire, sometimes it's Music
Strange Mathematics
Rhythmic Equations
The Sound of Thought is Enlightenment
The Magic Light of Tomorrow
Backwards are those of Sadness
Forward and Onward are those of Gladness
Enlightenment is my Tomorrow
It has no planes of sorrow
Hereby, my Invitation
I do invite you be of my Space World
This Song is Sound of Enlightenment
The Fiery Truth of Enlightenment
Vibrations come from the Space World
Is of the Cosmic Starry Dimension
Enlightenment is my Tomorrow
It has no planes of Sorrow
Hereby, our Invitation
We do invite you to be of our Space World

What the material world values does
not shine the same in the truth of

the soul.  You have been interested
in your shadow.  Look instead directly

at the sun.  What can we know by just
watching the time-and-space shapes of

each other?  Someone half awake in the night sees imaginary dangers; the

morning star rises; the horizon grows
defined; people become friends in a

moving caravan.  Night birds may think
daybreak a kind of darkness, because

that's all they know.  It's a fortunate
bird who's not intrigued with evening,

who flies in the sun we call Shams.
