Astral Traveller

Another of the riffs Tristan came up with turned into this funky number. It's a bit of a nonsense song, really. At the time I wrote (most of) the lyrics I was interested in what my darling and I called "tangent surfing" or changing thought processes rapidly and for no particular reason. I started thinking about the freedom that the mental realm offered and how nice it would be if we could really live like that ... free to change our lives at the speed of thought.

The riff and rhythm grew into this song, which has some rather odd timings and key changes ... in keeping with the theme. I kept the basic bass line that Lifta's rather funky bass player, Warren Greaves, came up with, too. It's on the first album and I'll post a sample as soon as possible.

Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am leaving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.

Astral Traveller

Say what you want to say
Be what you want to be
Go where you want to go
Do what you want to do

Who am I to wonder why?
Doubting what I do before I try.
Paralysed beyond repair
Should I do this? Do I even dare?

You sit and wonder
But I have found the answer
Be an astral traveller
Be an astral traveller

What is wrong with moving on
Who said you got to stay until you're gone?
Trapped inside one tiny mind
Look around and see what you can find
Be an astral traveller
Be an astral traveller

If you need a place to be,
Set your soul and spirit free
Set your soul and spirit free
Set your soul and spirit free!!

Who am I to wonder why?
Doubting what I do before I try.
Trapped inside one tiny mind
I'll look around and see what I can find
Be an astral traveller
Be an astral traveller

Be an astral traveller
Be an astral traveller (la la la la la laa la la laa la laaaaaa)
Be an astral traveller (la la la la la laa la la laa la laaaaaa)
