Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Now We Are Free" are a combination of a few different languages, including Latin and an invented language chosen to match the atmosphere of the film 'Gladiator.' The first two lines are partially in Latin and partially in the invented language, Anol shalom, Anol sheh ley konnud de ne um translates into "A new peace, a new era begins." Flavum nom de leesh is in Latin, and it means "A harvest of peace." This is followed by Ham de nam um das, meaning "A feast for the people." La um de Flavne translates to "The people's voice rises."


The second verse starts with We de ze zu bu and continues with a mix of invented and real languages. We de so a are you means "To be or not to be." Un va-a pesh a lay is from the invented language and is meant to sound like "one more song." Un di-I lay na day is Anol, and it means "I wish you peace." The third and fourth lines are again in the Anol language, which roughly translates to, "A love without end." The final line of the verse, Mee di nu ku, is also Anol and means, "From darkness to light."


The final section of the song repeats some of the earlier lines, with slight variations. There is a refrain of "la la da pa da le na da na," which is not in any recognizable language. The final lines of the song are Shom de nomm, Ma-lun des dwondi, dwwoondi, Alas sharum do koos, Shaley koot-tum. These are again in the invented language and are meant to sound like a kind of chant, though they do not have a specific meaning.

Light & Space

This has to be one of the most impressive tracks i've listened to in a long time. It perfectly fits the beauty and the diversity of our planet. We should finally realize, that there is no second earth within reach. By killing the entire ecosystem of our home, this will be the last branch we cut while sitting on it. So in the end.. we are the designers of our future..

Man watching David Attenborough inspired to go into conservation genetics. No regrets, this theme is fucking brilliant, it gives the sense of wonder which nature brings to me. Love it.

I’m convinced that when we pass from this realm and have our meeting with the divine music will be declared as his signature and his calling to us all. I believe music is the greatest gift from the divine as it moves and connects us all. And when that day comes and the divine reveals music is his signature he will move the heavenly curtains and behind them amongst all the great musicians of our times will be the seat for Hans Zimmer. Thank u Hans your music is all I’ve needed to understand the nature of the divine. Thank u Hans for letting me savour heavenly experiences on this planet. Take a bow sir.
