I think that the song Trying to get to Heaven kind of emphasizes the 'buffered self' in the Malaise of Immanence chapter. I think the verse 'I only saw what they let me see' resembles the rise of rationality in the buffered self - less vulnerability. I think the verse 'I'll close my eyes and wonder if everything is as hollow as it seems' resembles the negative part of the buffered self of something being beyond human is lost, a void one can fill through looking into the immanence. In the song, the artist talks about being alone a couple of times. I think this emphasizes the loss of the holy presence.
