Track Name: Blindness
BLINDNESS
Words & Music: Roger Seldon Campbell River, 2015

This blindness is never going to go away.
His Holiness sets a course toward a lighter day.

But he split the seed up from the husk.
Omnipotence sits up on the shelf.

Its big stuff. We are not an ant in the Big Domain.
Wake up! We’ll never know what it is if its all explained by the ordained.

Spirit is whatever gives us Life.
We only know that It lives in one’s Self.
Do it right but for the sake of Nothing else.
What’s to know but the reason why?

Don’t sweat, its not like we’re required to build a frame. Or give it a name.
Live it up! The way you would if you knew that it is your game. And it is your game.

Spirit is whatever gives us Life.
We only know that It lives in one’s Self.
Do it right but for the sake of Nothing else.
We only know we live until we die.

Maybe there’s another place far away from here.
Maybe it’s a looking glass and we’re already there.
Watch out, it steals!
Watch how it steals.
Track Name: Parked
PARKED
Lyrics&Music: Roger Seldon, Campbell River-Alstonville, 2015/16

Parked in my car
You won’t get far
Without the key
Which I have close to me

A funny situation
It was meant to be
Holy phaack-a-rooster
Is that gun meant for me?

Sucked down the hole
Face at your soul
You beg for me
Now you’re stuck with me

A silly situation
Was it meant to be?
Holy phaack-a-rooster
That gun’s meant for me!
Track Name: My Body
MY BODY
Lyrics: Roger Seldon
Music: Roger Seldon & Scott Blackley
Taku Lodge 2014/Alstonville 2nd Feb 2016

Leaving here on a puff of smoke
I burned my lip on the very last toke
Go for the ride

My body, my home
My body, my rest
My body, my prison

I’m leaving you on a puff of smoke
I burned my lip on the very last toke
Here for the ride
I’m just here for the ride.

My body, my wheels
My body, my mind
My body, my servant

I’m leaving you in a puff of smoke
I burned my lip on the very last toke
Go for the ride

My body, my home
My body, my rest
My body, my prison

I’m leaving you in a puff of smoke
I burned my lip on the very last toke
Here for the ride
I’m just here for the ride.

I’m just here for the ride.
Track Name: Hide
HIDE
Music & Lyrics: Roger Seldon
Campbell River 2014/15

Hide beneath the sea
Where you’ll come for me
Before you forget about me
Hide beneath the sea

Arose a mighty storm
Though I lay comfortably warm
Through my prism to the brooding sky
A ray of gold alights

Hide beneath the sea
Where you’ll come for me
Before you forget about me
Hide beneath the sea

Drifting in the tide
Rocking side to side
Rolling up the warm sandy beach
You’re still out of reach

Hide beneath the sea
Where you’ll come for me
Before you forget about me
Hide beneath the sea
