Yes - Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is often overlooked as an unsubstantial work, however, I find it to be most compelling. It is a song about a temple in Angkor, Cambodia, built for King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century as his state temple and capital city. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation—first Hindu, dedicated to Vishnu, then Buddhist. (taken from Wikipedia). Here's the story behind the song Angkor Wat: It seems Jon was watching some public television show regarding Cambodian refugees, and in this show, they said that the Cambodians believe that those who die will go to heaven, and then return to the spiritual center of Cambodia. Based on this idea, he wrote the poem below that he was going to read at the end of the song. At this point, he had the song almost finished; he was ending it w/ "return to the enter..." He then asked someone to translate this poem into Cambodian (Pauline Cheng) (presumably he was going to read it in Cambodian), and when he heard her reading it, he felt that she did such a good job with it, that he had her read it for the song. Also, Jon asked her what the spiritual center of Cambodia was, and she replied..."Angkor Wat" which Jon used for the very end of the song... Here is the correct literal translation of the poem at the end of the song: (note that Jon's original poem appears in video) In the past, present, and future, You are my knowledge and wealth, and you are everything. You are the Mother, and you are the Father. You are a Friend and Companion Bringing us out of Death to Survival, Showing us the truth, Protecting us and our presence, In the past, present, and future, You are my knowledge and wealth... Read by Pauline Cheng. (Source:NFTE.org)
