Wow. Loved it except one thing. Are the singers actually saying anything, or is it just gibberish. Can't tell. Anyone want to give me the lyrics?...if they exist.

well look basically the song is a blend of indian lyrics and the tehcno beats from don davis and juno reactor.but anyways these are probably what that lyrics significantly mean along with the song's info.

Navras - a Hindu word which, broken down, means nine ("nava") emotional states ("rasa") that are exhibited during music, drama, and the visual arts, the experience of which bring about a state of transcendental bliss. The nine different states are as follows:
Love
Humor
Pathos
Wrath
Heroism
Horror
Disgust
Supernaturalism
Peace

The lyrics from the song "Navras" are taken from the Upanisads, a set of documents written in sanskrit used in the Hindu religion.
LYRICS:
asato ma sad gamaya
tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
mrtyor mamrtam gamaya

(From delusion lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to immortality)

vidyam cavidyam ca yas
tad vedobhayam saha
avidyaya mrtyum tirtva
vidyayamrtam asnute

(He who knows both knowledge and action, with action overcomes death and witch knowledge reaches immortality.)

yasmin dyauh prthivi cantariksam otam manah saha pranais ca sarvaih tam evaikam janatha atmanam anya vacah vimuncatha amrtasya esah setuh

(In him are woven the sky and the earth and all the regions of the air, and in him rest the mind and all the powers of life. Know him as the ONE and leave aside all other words. He is the bridge of immortality.)

indriyebhyah param mano
manasah sattvam uttamam
sattvad adhi mahan atma
mahato vyaktam uttamam

(Beyond the senses is the mind, and beyond the mind is reason, its essence. Beyond reason is the Spirit in man, and beyond this is the Spirit of the Universe, the evolver of all.)

yada pancavatisthante
jnanani manasa saha
buddhis ca na vicestate
tam ahuh paramam gatim

(When the five senses and the mind are still, and reason itself rests in silence, then begins the Path supreme.)

Ya ya ya ya yada yadaya
Ya ya ya ya yada yada yada yada
Yada yada yada yada yada

bhidyate hrdayagranthis
chidyante sarvasamsayah
ksiyante casya karmani
tasmin drste paravare

(And when he is seen in his immanence and transcendence, then the ties that have bound the heart are unloosened, the doubts of the mind vanish, and the law of Karma works no more.)

Those lyrics are the main reason why people believe that Neo's 'mind' was downloaded into the Source - so that he still LIVES in a way, although his physical body is dead: 'The law of karma works no more.'

As I read through the lyrics, I can't help but notice a very striking resemblance of this song to a 'religious' description. The first lines of the song sound like a pleading prayer to a divine spirit (the great universal spirit, God, whatever your preference).

From delusion, lead me to truth. From darkness, lead me to light. From death, lead me to eternal life.

Then, it seems as if some amazing revelation is brought to the attention of the one pleading with the spirit. Almost like this person has realized that he can overcome death by following a path of correct actions, and reach eternal life by knowing the truth about this divine spirit.

He who knows both knowledge and action, with action overcomes death, and with knowledge reaches eternal life.

Then, as if from nowhere, another being appears. The One. He is some form of savior, a Bridge of Immortality. He is also some form of incarnation of the spirit of the universe, for it states that all things (the sky, earth, and all the regions of heaven [the air]) are woven into him. It also says that the mind (of the universe maybe) and all the powers of life rest within him.

In him are woven the sky and the earth, and all the regions of the air, and in him rest the mind and all the powers of life. Know him as The One and leave aside all other words. He is the bridge of immortality.

The next part talks about the structure of life, and the different existences. Senses are first, then the mind uses its essence (reason) in determining what the senses mean. Then, the Spirit of man (the states of emotion) is stronger than reason, and can override the mind. But even this is still subject to the power of the Spirit of the Universe (God, The One, etc.), who changes all things.

Beyond the senses is the mind, and beyond the mind is reason, its essence.
Beyond reason is the Spirit in man, and beyond this is the Spirit of the Universe, the evolver of all.

If your five senses and your mind are still, then you are dead. And then, the “Path supreme” begins. This could be journey to heaven or transcending to a higher existence, etc.

When the five senses and the mind are still, and reason itself rests in silence, then begins the Path supreme.

The final part talks about seeing this Spirit of the Universe for the first time, and being embraced by it after the Path supreme is over with. When this spirit is seen, all binds on the heart (spirit) are broken, and all doubt disappears, and the Law of Karma (which basically states “what goes around, comes around”) will no longer work. In my opinion, if it no longer works, then all is forgiven, and revenge will cease to exist.

And when he is seen in his immanence and transcendence, then the ties that have bound the heart are unloosened. The doubts of the mind vanish, and the Law of Karma works no more.

Anyway, that’s what I gathered from it, and it follows Hindu (and Christian, and just about all other beliefs in a divine spirit) very clearly.
