SOHAM is the sanskrit for "He is I" or "I am He" and symbolized the unity of the individual soul (caged in a pale white grave) with the absolute (a radiant black universe). Every living creature recites this mantra while breathing, thereby SO stands for the inhalation and HAM for exhalation.

Track Name: A Pale White Grave
eyes wide shut
no color no sound
eyes wide shut
subsequent denial
eyes wide shut
eyes wide shut
eyes wide shut
iam caged in a pale white grave

eyes wide shut
no time no space
eyes wide shut
existence paused
eyes wide shut
eyes wide shut
eyes wide shut
iam caged in a pale white grave

iam caged in a pale white grave
knock knock knock
set me free

dismantle this dying shell
crack crack crack
open wide

om trayambakam yajamahae sughandhim pushtivardhanam
urvaarukamiva bandhanam mrityormuksheeya maamritaat

ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्‌
।उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय माऽमृतात्‌ ।
Track Name: A Radiant Black Universe
floating through the void
a flight beyond the stars
through time when there is no time no more
where no is yes and yes is no

hot and cold
dark and bright
my one way traverse
through a radiant black universe

descending up ascending down
expand collpase iam unbound
there is no who when where no why
wave life and death a kiss goodbye

forward unto dawn never step back
forward unto dawn light is ahead
