The Meaning of Uh, What?
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:45:50 AM »
If it wasn't for music, I wouldn't be here right now because 1) I would never have gotten into the religions and philosophies that led me here and 2) I'd probably be dead. Here are three tunes that sum up "What it's all about" to me.
Windmills of Your Mind

Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Like a carosel that's turning running rings around the moon

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space

Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own
Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving in half-forgotten dream
Like the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes of its face
And our world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space

Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jingle in your head
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?

Lovers walk along the shore
And leave their footprints in the sand
Is the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?

Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of a song
Half-forgotten names and faces
But to whom do they belong?

When knew it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of your hair
Tomorrow Never Knows

Turn off your mind relax and float downstream;
It is not dying, it is not dying.

Lay down all thoughts surrender to the Void;
It is shining, it is shining.

That you may see the meaning of within;
It is being, it is being.

If love is all then love is everyone;
It is knowing, it is knowing.

That ignorance and hate may mourn the dead;
It is believing, it is believing.

That listen to the color of your dreams;
It is not living, it is not living.

Or play the game: existence to the end,
Of the beginning, of the beginning

Within You, Without You

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

We were talking about the love we all could share
When we find it to try our best to all repair
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 flows 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 flows on within you and without you
Everybody's got something to hide
Except for me and my monkey

I don't think that I can take it, cos they took so long to make it.
If at first you don't succeed ... Um ... Yeah. Whatever and stuff.

The Richard Harris version rises high above the compromised second draft.
RH digs  deep down and pours it out like digging his heart out of his chest and just leaves you wondering "what in gods holy name is he blathering about". But it's clear baby, he's really feeling it!

People used to take a lot of drugs back then. I'm sure it made perfect sense.
It's as though a member of the rat pack got dosed with pure Sandos acid!
The perfect venue for his cycle.
Great stuff. I really dig his work.
Only William Shatner comes close on the WTF scale.

Damn, I allowed my inner Walter to come out due to someone on the forum I perceived as being undude. Only to immediately afterwards stumble on some words from a wiser fella than myself, the late cckeiser, and realize that I was acting in the very way I was arguing against. Thank you cckeiser for put
