The Otherworld(s) of Celtic myth are invisible realms where gods, spirits, elves, giants, etc reside. Some Otherworlds are beautiful heavens, and others are terrible hells. Otherworlds are guarded and hidden by magic. The Otherworld(s) can be found in places like lakes, caves, forests, rivers, dunes, and islands. An Otherworld may also be a grandiose castle or even a humble cottage. Often times the Otherworld(s) make an appearance at night, but then quickly vanish in the daylight. It is also said that on the eve of Samhain (saah-win) all gates to the Otherworld open and spirits venture into our world from theirs. The Otherworld(s) have a very different concept of time. Generally, time moves at a much slower slower rate. Spending one year in an Otherworld could mean centuries have passed in our world.
From nothing to something, a respectable tale (?) Everybody’s got a price Liquidating my decisions, holding it in, waiting on a vision Investing in an ending that might come true, or not at all Keep up my head cause the water will rise, hoping for calm if it ever resides
Try to find heaven and hell, find a haven right here Dogmatists will keep barking, ‘til the stars disappear Find heaven and hell, find a haven right here Find out for ourselves heaven on earth can be real, and it can be right here
Keep my head up cause the water will rise, subterranean prevails And out of thin air, a hope-filled dream, though nothing in this life’s guaranteed Mouths to feed, and there’s people to please, still walking around on my knees
Try to find heaven and hell, pull ourselves off the clouds Resting in our own hands, shake it out onto the world all around
Find heaven and hell, find our haven right here, Find out for ourselves, heaven on earth can be real
Give me a chance and ill take it, I’ll eat up every crumb On the knees and the hands gaining momentum ‘til i can finally run, Run free run down this slipping dream Tear it up it seems, wrap it all around me
Try to find heaven and hell, some relief from all this chaos Unpack our dusty dreams we were saving for later Heaven and hell, find a haven right here, Find out for ourselves heaven on earth can be real, and it can be right here
