Take the time to realise
You need to find some peace of mind to stay here...
It takes a little common sense
To find the inner confidence to stay here...
Close the paper, open mind
The real world ain’t hard to find in here...
Cross your legs and look inside
Find the inner light that shines in here...
Out there, there’s a million things to
Take you, away from what you should be
Doing, with your time on earth so
You've got to look inside
*Sit in peace and close your eyes
See the path and find the guide in here...
Go deep inside and as you roam
You'll find you're on the journey home in here...
*Additional verse written by Litmus 13521 UCC (2020 Gregorian)
At 'Barzinho', Ribamar - 5 Leo♌ 13521 UCC (26th July 2020 Gregorian)
Video by Miguel Simões
Live van demo (of the original version) through the amp at 'The Groove House', Portugal - 13519 UCC (2018 Gregorian)
A recording of the original version of this one also featured on the Tuscan Raiders album
Joining me (on guitars, bass & backing vocals) were Al Bloomfield (Lead Vocals) and Dirk Forsdyke (Drums)
I feel that much of what we're bombarded with every day within the system through the corporate media and our various forms of "employment" distracts us from what we're really here to do. And the conditioning we are exposed to on a daily basis acts to reinforce the message that all the answers are outside of us and can be found through hard work, studying, religion etc etc etc
But as we wake up to reality we find that in fact all the answers are inside us, where our spirit connects with the singularity of infinite love...
This one came out of a little creative sesh me and Al (Bloomfield, our 'Tuscan Raiders' front man) were having one afternoon at my gaff where he was lodging with me at the time. He had a couple of tunes and I had this one and we sort of helped each other finish off each other's songs in Lennon & McCartney style...
I recorded a demo with Al and Dirk our drummer and because the other lads weren't on it we put it as a kind of hidden track at the end of the 'Raiders album ' They Can't Take What You Haven't Got'. So, if you 'Look Inside' that album you'll find it hiding there at the end after about 30 seconds of silence. The '...mainstream shite....' Al is referring to at the start of that track was related to some ex army guy called 'Blunt' I seem to remember ;)
Once I went on the road in my camper van I often used to busk this one and play it at gigs because it's got such a great message. But I began to wish we'd written a different 3rd verse because I didn't like repeating the first verse again. So fast forward to 13521 (2020 Gregorian) when I played this one as part of my gig at Barzinho (featured above) during the scamdemic restrictions and finally got around to writing that 3rd verse! (I hope Al likes it)
