Weary traveler, calloused and sore
Time and gravity followed you here
Rest, my sister, and tell me
All about the ocean

I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Weary traveler, calloused and sore
Time and gravity followed you here
Rest, my brother, and tell me
All about the ocean

Spoils and trophies and burdens you've bore.
Pay them no mind, they matter no more
Leave them behind and show me
All about the ocean

Look in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Deep in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Show me your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Look in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

    So many meanings can be taken from this song. For me, i think of love. Love can be seen through the eyes and they say love is like an ocean with feelings as deep as the depths of the ocean. I'm probably wrong but that's what the song speaks to me.

    Beautiful interpretation. The ocean here could simultaneously represent cosmic or transcendent consciousness from which the healer has come. The intermediate verses could be the travelers saying, "i've never seen the ocean, not like this one... "

    By having the weary travelers look to and speak of this divine ocean, it is a prescription for peace and dissolution in the universal mind. As that occurs, the angel/healer also finds peace in the vast and deep memories of those whom they are now united with ...

    A soul has just "died", or rather made the journey across the great abyss. After the harrowing journey, this soul resists in the supernal triage, attended to by a healer. The healer, being a heavenly creature, as never made the journey that a human soul has, and inquires about the experience. "the ocean" is either/both mortal life and death.
