Weird how we all want to know what it means. Because what we get from it, we interpret it as peace and 'freedom' and such things. The actual meaning, well apparantly made up but individual words make sense in different languages.

you guys should observe the hymns of the three semitic religions in their native languages or the hum's of the buddhist practices, and such things. Some have simple background beats like this song, but have lyrics extremely beautiful. With a truer sense of freedom that totally fills you....

its interesting, as this gladiator tune gives me images of the movie, open empty space/fields on which you are free to roam, but more importantly all this is encased in a limited experience which ends in death -> but not in a sad way at all. So i guess for me its a great tune as it attaches the reality of death to life hence describing the whole existence, but with the theme of freedom, emphasised by total faith and the scenery that is created around us.
