Ascend by sweatshop unioun

We are passing into a great change of species
And no matter how loudly the old authorities
may proclaim that this is not so, it is going to happen
Our moment in time, when population reaches it's limit
and the world as we know it ends, is not about death at all
It is about ascending into a new kind of life

They only see to the sky
Our dreams and our lives
Our means to survive
But not between our eyes
We gotta free our minds and re-design them
Seek and find the trees to climb high in
Read the signs between the lines
Defeat the lies discreetly hiding deep inside them
Sheep unite and beat the tyrant
Leave the island but keep smiling (smiling)
'Cause why try to fit in
To this life that has been
Pre-planned to keep man in a cycle of sin
The fight could have been won
But we sit stunned
As we get drunk and forget once we were tricked
And now they can complete their goal
'Cause we're convinced that dung heaps are gold
People sold to keep our souls dug in
Deeper holes than we could know we're stuck in

"Now something is wrong with that... don't you think?"

[Chorus]
Life can be a sequence of precluded opportunities
just like déjà vu that never ends
It seems our position as spirit beings
on this physical journey is to make our moves and then ascend
Life can be a sequence of precluded opportunities
just like déjà vu that never ends
It seems our position as spirit beings
on this physical journey is to make our moves and then ascend

I know sometimes it seems like it's some kind of dream, right?
Some try to scream and reach the sunshining beams
But the path is paved with choices, and the voices tell you lies
But it's your choice, your life, don't wait for hell to rise
It won't be televised in any case
On any stations anyways
Many wait for many saviors
Many say that any day
The penny's they attempt to save will buy them plenty acres
And the petty labor's every day's work's fruit can then be savored
Believe what you choose to but I refuse to surrender
To the people that rule you and their ruthless agendas
Spent a day away with me
Don't slave this week or play the game
End the pain, I'll make you see
The sacred tree and break the chains
Leave your alleys and streets, walk the valleys and peaks with me
This is all ours if you and I can just leave it be
Freedom is as easy as believing that we're one
Breathing it in deeply and the healing has begun

[Chorus]

Until we change our ways
There's no #ing way they'll change their ways
Manipulate our brains with the airwaves
Our kids will face the same # when they're slaves
What gets me is they claim that it's fair play
But label us insane if we dare say
Anything that unlocks the staircase
So they can keep us locked in a scared state

Yeah, but until I change my ways
There's no #ing way you'll change your ways
So we'll keep celebrating Earth Day
Even though it's clear it's merely wordplay
What gets me is I know that they can cure AIDS
'Cause they control the healthcare and the birthrate
Then indoctrinate us 'til we serve hate
And incarcerate us in this birdcage

"And what frightens me is that... people are simply letting it happen"

[Chorus]

Sweatshop

You don't need to believe it
Or even agree with it
But give yourself time to make memories then leave it

Suzanne - Leonard Cohen

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

Won't say it's the most estoteric but it's what first came to mind. Moody Blues "In the Beginning"

Lyrics:


I think
I think I am
Therefore I am
I think

Ofcourse you are my bright little star
I've miles and miles of files, pretty files of your forefather's fruit
And now to suit our great computer
You're magnetic ink

I'm more than that
I know I am
Atleast, I think
I must be

There you go man, keep as cool as you can
Face piles and piles of trials with smiles
It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave
And keep on thinking free

Its the intro into the 'happy happy joy joy' song "Lovely to See You". Moody Blues did it better then anyone in the early days. They were just as profound as Pink Floyd but less self-important imho.

A lot of the early Moody Blues has this deep vibe to it - but it was effortless and always with a catchy tune thrown in.

And then there is the master: Mr. Frank Zappa with

Cosmik Debris


The mystery man came over
And he said "I'm outta sight!"
He said for a nominal service charge
I could reach nirvana tonight
If I was ready, willing and able
To pay him his regular fee
He would drop all the rest of
His pressing affairs and devote
His attention to me

But I said "Look here brother
who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Look here brother, don't waste your time on me"

The mystery man got nervous
And he fidget around a bit
He reached in the pocket of his mystery robe
And he whipped out a shaving kit
Now I thought it was a razor
And a can of foaming goo
But he told me right then when the top popped open
There was nothin' his box won't do
With the oil of Aphrodite, and the dust of the Grand Wazoo
He said "You might not believe this, little fella
But it'll cure your asthma too"

And I said "Look here brother
Who you jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now what kind of a guru are you, anyway?
Look here brother, don't waste your time on me"
*(Don't waste your time)*

"I've got troubles of my own", I said
"And you can't help me out
So, take your meditations and your preparations
And ram it up your snout!"
"But I got the crystal ball", he said
And held it to the ligh
So I snatched it, all away from him
And I showed him how to do it right

I wrapped a newspaper 'round my head
So I looked like I was deep
I said some mumbo-jumbo, then
I told him he was going to sleep
I robbed his rings and pocketwatch
And everything else I found
I had that sucker hypnotized
He couldn't even make a sound
I proceeded to tell him his future, then
As long as he was hanging around
I said "The price of meat has just gone up
And your old lady has just gone down!"

And I said "Look here brother-who you
Jiving with that cosmik debris?
Now is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?
Don't you know, you could make more money as a butcher?
So, don't waste your time on me"
Don't waste it, don't waste your time on me
*(Shante)*

Now, who else would have a Bass Clarinet Solo. This is a live performance - you can probably find the album cut if you perfer.

Just about anything by Magma. Most of their songs are sung in Kobaian, which is a structured and musical language they made up because, well, the music demanded it.

Sons of Champlin. Late sixties. San Francisco. The Filmore. "You Can Fly"
Begins low and soft and gathers energy like Ravels Bolero until the final moments it just lifts and screams to the rafters.

Why don’t you open the door and let your soul through
Why don’t you open the door to see what’s real
Well if you open the door, you may become you
You’ll know what you feel

Open the door and let the sun through
Why don’t you open the door from your mind
Well, open the door, it’s comin’ to you
You’ll be what you find

You --- the name of the game is you
You --- your name or your fame won’t do
Would you like to meet you?
Please do

Why don’t you be what you feel, the music’s playing
You got to be what you feel, the beat is strong
And just believe what you feel, the music’s playing
Let your soul be your song

‘Cause you can always go wrong with what you’re saying
And you can always go wrong with what you think you are
But you can never go wrong if you’re really praying
Your flower may bloom

You --- your time will be coming soon
You --- as truly the baby you still are
Would you like to meet you?
Please do
Please do meet you

You can fly

Why don’t you open the door and look around you
And then be what you feel, you’ll feel all right
Well you can never go wrong, it may astound you
Your flower’s in bloom

You --- you know which way you can turn
You --- what you already know, you’ll learn
Would you like to meet you?
Please do

The hummingbird needs no legs to fly
We’ve all been blessed with wings of our own
In your soul there’s a lullaby
And what you hear can be shown
You can hear it when you cry
You can make it if you cry
You can make it if you fly
You can fly, go
You can fly, go
You can fly

fyerbird.
your twanging my old hippy neurons here.

Or how about Within You Without You , first cut on the flip-side of Sgt Pepper

We were talking about the space between us all
And the people who hide themselves behind a wall
Of illusion
Never glimpse the truth, then it's far too late
When they pass away

We were talking about the love we all could share
When we find it
To try our best to hold it there
With our love
With our love, we could save the world
If they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life goes on within you and without you

We were talking about the love that's gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know - they can't see
Are you one of them?

When you've seen beyond yourself
Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we're all one
And life goes on within you and without you

Stairway to heaven by Led Zep.

I think that would be the epitome of esotericism in songs.

Of course, this is very subjective

Welcome.



although i like most of Bruce Springsteen music, that one left a lot to be desired imo,i bet he hated that Manfred Mann did a better job than he did. which is most unusual, seeing that most remakes are a cheap imitation of their original.

TOOL


I just remembered this one, the deep meaning in the lyrics. Actually, alot of older Metallica has a message.

here are 2 TOOL songs that i found pretty deep once I really listened. Imho, TOOL is EPIC and Maynard is a great artist and writer.

Their videos are usually among the BEST. TOOL is frickin unmatched this last 20 years in music, they are the total package.
