If this text actually means nothing, then it would have to be a carefully constructed lingual engineering masterpiece. I mean you can clearly see patterns, some kind of grammar (this may be a flexive and not positional language), words returning in a way that is just too strange to be a coincidence. If Lisa Gerrard would be making this up during singing, you probably wouldn't see these patterns - it would sound much like baby-talk (which it motst certainly doesn't). So for the 'singing from the heart' interview part - it's bulldung. My theory is that they took some text, and exchanged the words (or phrases) to random ones, they might have occasionally heard in ancient languages like gaelic, greek, latin etc., or to words they found in dictionaries that had the right number of syllables and would fit the mood - like 'love', or 'peace'. That would explain why we all see words from ancient languages but cannot make out which one it actually is.
