Rachael's Next Gig

Rachael performed another of her gigs to an appreciative audience the other night and I am including the lyrics for 2 of her compositions. She was accompanied by Nick Williams on harmonica and Cat on drums. It sounded great.

Behnd the Mask

I have been lured by the mythical
Romantic ideas of the mystical
But I’m far too cynical to believe
But far to dreamy to disagree

I’m a border lining ambivalent fool
I’ll never know the joy of blind faiths rule
Nor do I claim to be an atheist
Devoting my life to the meaningless

This world of belief is a murky stew
Of premature ideas creating a hazy view
Facts, myths, faith entwine in a false cacoon
And fear breeds behind the mask of truth

This is the hardest place to be
No framework for me to follow blindly
Just a vague sense of what to do
A whisper, a nudge, a will to pursue

Sitting on the fence, it can be hell
But I wont sit in an ignorant cell
Instead I follow a rich tapestry
Of catch 22’s & duality

I have been lured by the mythical
Romantic ideas of the mystical
But I’m far too cynical to believe
But far to dreamy to disagree

This world of belief is a murky stew
Of premature ideas creating a hazy view
Facts, myths, faith entwine in a false cacoon
And fear breeds behind the mask of truth

Pyramid program

Starlight star bright first star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might, I wish my wish come true tonight
Find me perspective, find me clarity
Find me a will that’s higher than self deceit

Starlight star bright
First star I see tonight

Pyramid structured self improvement program
For $800 your can teach me who I am
But tell me this Mrs break on through
Why do I see so much fear in you?

Your eyes are wide
They’re hypnotised
Your brainwashed confidence
Is just a lie
So starlight star bright
Help me to never fall for this hype

Layer upon layer of purchased pride
You say I don’t know coz I’ve never tried
But I’ve looked up to the stars a million times
And they don’t bill me for their insights

Starlight star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may
I wish I might
I wish I could save her from this Pyramid hype

Well I’m sorry if this offends you
But sometimes it’s hard to hear the truth
And surely with your pop psychology
To offence you are immune

Is Australia not helping with the Hurrican Victims because over half of them happen to be Black Folks.

This is subtle racism.

Australia should have a quota to maintain a population of 20% Negro.

New Orleans population is 65% Negro.

Australia should be as enlightened as the American South.
