What is "SHINE (Fly Like a Bird)" Really About?

What is The President of Pop's song "SHINE (Fly Like a Bird)" REALLY about?

So, what is Fly Like a Bird about? Or, rather, what is it really about? (Spoiler Alert: It's not about literally flying like a bird…exactly...)

In fact, if Fly Like a Bird is about anything at all (and it kind of is), it’s something like the supra-dimensional magical realm that Joe Rogan sees on ayahuasca or DMT (BTW I’ve never taken either, FYI).

Still, I’d say that I experience some sort of extra-dimensional thinga-ma-jigger [auto-correct suggested “thinga-ma-jigger”, and who am I to argue?]...where was I? Oh, yeah–I suppose I experience that same sort of thing in my own way, for example, by making the Fly Like a Bird song/video. Somehow I “get” that same experience, at least to a degree, because of the power of words, music, and images.

No plant-enhancement needed.

I also remember some kind of extra-dimensional thing happening when I was eight, in church on Christmas Eve, and I suddenly realised that all the grownups were faking it, emptily saying words from a prayer book they didn’t really believe in, while I both felt and saw a golden glowing light suffusing the place.

So there. That’s what this song, Fly Like a Bird, is about. Something between the green devilish-looking creatures Joe Rogan sees when he’s on drugs, and the quasi-spiritual vision of an eight year-old in an Anglican church on Christmas Eve.

Midway between those two perceptions, in “a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead—your next stop”...SHINE (Fly Like a Bird).
