The veil of the apparent is thick. Only in moments when the Spirit's wind is blowing does the veil shift enough for us to peek through the momentary gaps. Then the mundane closes around us once more. This transcendence is so rare that over time, instead of a desire to look again into that transfiguring reality, I yearn for even the desire to look. Most of my days are spent so far removed from transcendence that it is energizing to simply hunger for the appetite. The desire for something I cannot attain, when it is this strong, is piercing. As I muddle though my days, I forget what it was like to touch Beauty's face. Or more powerfully, to have her touch my face.

The worth of the realm seen even momentarily is so great nothing material can afterward hold my allegiance even if it can occupy my time. I haunt this land as the citizen of another country. I know for certain the moral ambitions of a pig will not satisfy the desire my experience awakens. I do not yet know what will satisfy, but I know I must search 'beyond', though I as yet do not even know the way.

On another level, this song is about a physical reality. The electron orbit, which is itself mostly empty space, is vastly larger than the speck of the nucleus. There may well be nothing "solid" at all. Contact is the meeting of two energy fields. So in a literal sense my clothes are empty. What is "real" is my ghost; my spirit and your spirit and the Holy Spirit. The material world is no hallucination, but the nature of the tangible world, at its root, is far different than it appears.

On another level, the song is about how my social significance is a facade. I am aware that you are faking it, but that does not lessen my pretense in the least. I clothe my confusion; I cover my naked need.
