At last, I see; I’ve taken everything that life could throw at me
Clawed my way around Fortuna’s wheel, at the epicentre all will be revealed.
Voices, greeting me; now we’re floating, perpetually free,
In shades of purple, green and blue, behold the mystery of one to twenty-two.
Welcome to the World you’ve waited for, you’ve always known that there was something more
The grace extends beyond your naked eye, an ever-changing, never-ending sky.
Welcome, welcome to the World, have you travelled a long way, was your journey hard?
Are you glad that you made it? I’m so glad that you made it.
Take my hand and I’ll show you, Welcome to the World.
Welcome, welcome to the World, take a good look around you, do you like what you see?
As the last chain slips from you, as the Oneness comes on you.
We are everything, everywhere, welcome to the World.
This song took it’s initial form many years ago; it was only when I started recording that I made some changes, added a bit and decided to have it as the final song on the album. I could explain what it means, or at least why it was written, but I realise that it can be interpreted in different ways. Several people have told me what they feel it means and it is clearly not the same for everyone: I am going to leave for everyone to interpret their own way.
But ... for me it is a song of hope, of optimism, of ‘birth’ or ‘rebirth’, starting over, beginning again or progressing onto something new, growth, change for the better. Above all, it is meant as a song of hope; goodness knows, we need hope and optimism in these desperately troubled times.
