Sun Song (I Love It's Holy Mystery)



Sun Song

The sun sings that he wants you all to know
What dawns behind our lunar sea
For since our very words were commandeered
We've explored the infinite circuitry.
To try and find a scheme that gave us form
It burns our curiosity.
And the answers that we sit and hope to find
Are living here inside of we.

And so we set foot on the pathway
Between the pillars of black and white
To put aside the fears and doubts that hold this old world down
And open up our hidden store of Light, within.

I saw all the stars that glimmer above me get off
their pegs, and gently flicker down.
And all the people of the world dissolve into
a sparkling dust.
And through the Holy Vortex, for a second it did pass,
and then it returned to what it used to Be

And in the second of realisation
the Angel of the Rainbow was watching us to see.
If we were ready now to be a colour in his Harmony.
Ah! I love its Holy Mystery.

No need for sitting always on our own,
staring desperately at all of the problems of this world.
We see mistakes maybe our high is blown,
But sometimes you need the black to see the white to
Find the core of love and Beauty.
So we can change our Lead back into Gold,
and make the chemical wedding twixt ecstasy and concentration.

We've got to learn to use our hearts and minds
as the building stones to make the New Age World Electrik Temple.

So people look into each other's eyes
and gaze at them with certainty.
We're gathered here today from all around
to celebrate eternity.
The Spirit in the air is never far
immersed in our totality.
And the answers that we sit and hope to find are living here in side of we.

Never let the seal of love be broken
lest you act too suddenly.
We're waiting for the energy to come
in the age of electricity.
Magnetic tape Time swirling back and forth
a-faster than the eye can see.
And the answers that we sit and hope to find
Are swimming in Our Mercury...


I will make you Fishers of Men said Fish to Fishes
For Fish is Fisher of Man who Fishes
And if Man is Fisher of Fish and Fisher of Men
And Fish is Fisher of Man and Fisher of Fish
And then that Man is Manna of Man
Then we'll get there if we can.

The Salmon Song

Ooh yeh, the Salmon swimming up the stream of time
Leaping up the Falls of Man, to the source of Love and Light
Guided from Atlantis to the Water-Bearer's jar.
Far out-nearerin-and back to where We Are. (Hello!)

You know the way to Be
You know the way to Be
You know the way to Be
Ah ah-we're getting nearer
Nearer to the Water Bearer
Ooh we're getting nearer
We're swimming, swimming, swimming with the Salmon
(Ooh! yr. swimming with the Salmon)

Salty Salmon Solomon Seal,
Soulmender Salamander Soul of Man
Salar Salmon Semen SalMundi
Solver of the Mystery - WoW!

Salty Solomon Salmon Soul of Man
Sun-Moon Salmon Salamander Solomon
Salty Solomon Salmon Soul of Man
King of the Fishes...


So now you know the feeling that is shining
and a-surfing and a-sliding and a-gliding
and Now you see you're riding the great
wave of time - Now and Here and Now.

laughing at the cosmic joking yoking
yoga union into the Sun behind
the Sun, the One, you've found the
Pun you've only just begun - letting
it a-flow.

No more are we roasting in the boasting
of the pride that tried to hide our
glide inside the secret castle of
the Thin King who did
build on sand - letting it a-go.

Tempering the living juicy metals and
the petals of the Seven Open Lotuses
on the Tree of Life, the Secret Seed,
the pushing, thrusting Will that
slides into the Mother Will that
makes the flowers grow - As Above and So Below.
