Moody Blues, The - OM Lyrics




The rain is on the roof
Hurry high butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skys all cry
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

The Earth turns slowly round
Far away the distant sound
Is with us everyday
Can you hear what it say
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

The rain is on the roof
Hurry high butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skys all cry
OM, OM, Heaven, OM

Moody Blues, The OM Comments
  1. ken kesler

    I have sought peace my whole life. Now that I am old I know I will only find it by my departure from it.

  2. Thomas Dodd

    They were the vanguard of their generation using music to move forward spiritual goodness without being preachy!

  3. Brian Koller

    Maybe so? Om. Brian A K

  4. Nancy Lyles

    Ahh, solar plexus, uuu, throat, mmm, crown, sounds opening portals to energy and insight

  5. R Diaz

    And people wonder why I like this album just a little more than _Days of Future Passed..._

  6. Tony Kaluzny

    the rain is on the roof :P

  7. Tony Kaluzny

    2 notes of the chord....is alll we reach,, and the word is OHMMMM

  8. Purple Tractor

    I was listening to this song with my friend while we were both peaking on 4 grams of shrooms and my friend started having a total meltdown and crying. I had to really try for the dear life of me to not lose my cool but at some point I just layed down and surrendered. Man it was intense and strange and beautiful but I dont think I could ever do it again. ✌🙌🙏❤

  9. Kevin Brown

    The MB albums were more than music...they were literally an existential experience when listened to with headphones.

  10. Stephanie Knows

    Generally, I listen to whole albums of the Moody Blues [I mean, except for Go Now!], yet on occasion I'll wish to hear a particular song. Some stand alone better than others. In this case, The Word must be followed by OM, and OM must be preceded by the Word. Thank you pairing them. :)

    I was given this album in 1973 as a going away present by a very special female friend. I was leaving college for medical school, and it was my introduction to this phenomenal band. After listening, I became totally immersed in their music, and have followed them to this day. I’ve seen them in concert twice, and their music is ever present in my operating room. Thank you, Berta... Your place in my heart is reinforced every time I listen to this group... Peace and love always...

  13. love me leave me

    There minds where beyond there youthful self......listen to what they where saying to us

  14. Wilshare

    The rain is on the roof
    Hurry high butterfly
    As clouds roll past my head
    I know why the skys all cry
    Om, om, heaven, om
    The earth turns slowly round
    Far away the distant sound
    Is with us everyday
    Can you hear what it say
    Om, om, heaven, om
    The rain is on the roof
    Hurry high butterfly
    As clouds roll past my head
    I know why the skys all cry
    Om, om, heaven, om

    OM (Aum in Sanskrit) means God in many books and old sayings. Science and the spiritworld comes together here long before Stephen Hawking told us about that vibrations in the universe are both sound and light. We can now with todays tecniology see infra-red and X-rays. We can for example see spirits in an infrared-camera that we cannot see with a ordenary camera or our own eyes. The "chord" is the right balance of vibrations of music that takes our conciusness to a higher level so we can see and hear. The chord is also the exakt balance of vibrations that created all universe, scientificly. You can only see light n a telescope if it has the right vibration and you can only hear radiowaves if it has the right vibration. Mike Pinder maybe knew this or the word(s) came to him. "This garden universe vibrates complete.
    Some we get a sound so sweet.
    The vibrations reach on up to become light and
    then through gamma out of sight.
    Between the eyes and ears there lie,
    the sound of colour and the light of a sigh.
    And to hear the sun, what a thing to believe.
    But it's all around if we could but perceive.
    To know ultra-violet, infra-red and X-rays,
    Beauty to find in so many ways.
    Two notes of the chord, that's our fluoroscope.
    But to reach the chord is our lifes hope.
    And to name the chord is important to some.
    So they give a word, and the word is OM"

    Bob Bobobla

    Paulina W
    That’s beautiful

    Neil Keeble

    So true
    We grow spiritually and develops our 3rd eye sight only when the conscious is completely quiet.

    R Diaz

    OM = short for "omni", Latin prefix meaning "all". About sums it up.

  32. Emstarmassage

    I remember buying this album on cassette back in 1982, and listening to it as I flew from San Antonio to Las Vegas.. The memories!!!

  33. David Oldberg

    TO NAME THE CHORD IS IMPORTANT TO SOME ! LIFE DOES NOT CHANGE MUCH EVEN AFTER 49 YRS.

    "The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed; The deed develops into habit; And habit hardens into character; So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings. As the shadow follows the body, As we think, so we become." ... ~ The Buddha ~

    Awesome!

    The 'thought' is a mantra: 'Ahh' on the in-breath, and 'Um' on the breath-out, and becomes a habit of meditation. The goal is to connect with your autonomic nervous system - that separate part/brain that keeps you breathing, and all automatic bodily functions; without your 'Control.' That realization doubles your 'Character' and makes you aware of a deep empathy for all life some call 'Loving kindness.'

    It's like just watching a swing, intake of breath: Ahh, and the reverse of that on the back-swing: Umm. The body will signal the beginning of each, and you will come to notice the automatic control through the mantra ...

    The ultimate test of meditation is an automatic 'light' that is called by different names, and not to be fooled by psychic powers; extra sensory perception(s) and other material distractions that tempt 'loving kindness, into forgetting the goal ... rebirth until all sentient beings become aware.'

    Even so, I sure enjoy the Moody Blues music rendition of the sound 'Ahum' :) Even as materially distracting as it can be!
