Hi all,

What's the meaning of the sentence below?
Could somebody tell me this with another sentence(s)?

"I'm on a sentimental journey into sight and sound of no return and no looking back or down."

    "of no return" means he cannot return once he has done it. It is a sentimental journey of sight and sound, without looking behind himself or down.

    Think of it is as passing the event horizon in a black hole. You don't know what's there and you can't return once you pass it.

    This is an extract from song lyrics so usual caveats apply - it may not mean anything at all, and its structure may have been bent to fit the rhythm and/or rhyme.

    It suggests a journey into a dreamworld or a hallucination or into fragmented memories, where what you see and what you hear don't necessarily add up to a coherent world, like reality does (supposedly).
