The Consciousness Song


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I'd just finished reading a very influential book (at least to me) called "Biocentrism" by Nobel laureate biologist Robert Lanza and it got me thinking of the nature of consciousness in a little more literal sense. I just put those thoughts to melody with the help of my friend Racquel on backing vocals.

Lyrics
I can feel the warm glow
On my face
Slicing through the storm clouds
With your rays
There’s an earthquake
Beneath me
A crushing tide rolls
On the sea

I can feel the silk breeze
Of your breath
Blowing from beyond time
Beyond death
Another rumble
In the deep
The sound and fury
Cannot keep
Me from you

Chorus
Lightening, hail and thunder
The very voice of God
Can’t break this spell I’m under
No other choice I want
And all I ever knew
And all I hold as truth
And all my love comes through
Because of you.

I can see the starburst
In your eyes
Super nova gives birth
Then dies
A resurrection
In deep space
It’s your new reflection
In my face
To carry on

Bridge
When this world ends
Another’s born to take its place
Conscious of what’s mended
This can be our saving grace
Our saving grace
Our saving grace

I can hear the chorus
Of your voice
Calling me to follow
My own choice
A new direction
On my road
Human imperfection
It’s my load
To carry on

Chorus

Love it... there's a refreshing simplicity in the instrumentation & melody/harmony... but there's an awful lot going on here, musically and lyrically. I always like your allusions... someday we shall have a LONG lazy afternoon chat over coffee about life, the universe, and everything... I'm enjoying your messages, and need to go look up that book!
ttfn,
Drakonis

I think
it's becoming a spill-over effect from the painting. I'm looking forward to a long lazy afternoon chat, had a great time last year, ready to do it again.

Your voice
sounds so familiar, The chorus it has such a grand 60's feel to it, the back up singers really round this out, beautiful pic BTW thanks for the download!

Thanks for the quip
about the pic - from my latest painting :-) I seem to be stuck in that 60's kind of vein, wish I could bring in a little more contemporary feel - but I guess that's what all this about, working it out.

My experience of
conciousness is a very tenuous affair as often I am not aware of what is going on....at least that is what the old ball and chain tellsme ....What dear?

Another well scrubbed up and beautifully polished performance and song.

Nice one
