Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Now We Are Free" have elements of various languages including Latin, Arabic, and even made-up words. The opening phrase "Anol shalom" seems to have originated from the Hebrew language which translates to "peace be with you." The following lines appear to be Latin, which translates to "We relinquish our spirits (souls) to you (God) and the earth (or possibly a deity named shaddai). Golden-hued (or bright) are the fields in the sun, in the region of the summer stars. Tan-skinned (or strong) is the figure (or essence) of the man who sits in the lowest east (or mountain), in a garden of equal land. He creates his equal. "


As the song proceeds, the lyrics become more ambiguous and incoherent, suggesting a blend of multiple languages. It's also possible that the words may have been primarily chosen for their melodic quality rather than the significance of their meaning. The verses appear to be intended to transport us to an ethereal, distant realm known as the afterlife. This mesmerizing atmosphere is partially credited to Lisa Gerrard's mesmerizing vocals and the musical arrangement of Hans Zimmer's orchestration. The openness and vagueness of the lyrics permit the song to be interpreted in a more personal way by the listener, making it a beloved song for many.
