  1. Resurrected

Inspired by India, I'd felt that I'd somehow been reborn, but not in the religious sense. More like a wake up call to the reality of my life, with a joyous feeling about it. A bit funky, again with the great electric bass chops of Ian de Souza. Lyrics co-written by a professional American poet, Lucien Zell. Snare and brushes by Jim Casson. I play a vintage Wurlitzer, with a change of mood towards the end on grand piano. A bit of rhythmic overtone singing going on.

Lyrics

RESURRECTED

Thank you for this jolt in time
Cruel kindness innocent crime
Broke the threshold
Awoke my mind

Learning to love the blows I take
At least they're keeping me awake
Amen
For heaven's sake

I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be
Not for reasons previously expected
Resurrected
Oh finally
I've been through the fire
I will arrive
Resurrected
More alive

Times I let my spirit fall
Then silently made my confessions
Oh the lessons
Have come to call

I'm precisely who I'm supposed to be
Not the person previously selected
Resurrected
Oh finally
I've been through the fire
I will arrive
Resurrected
I've been through the fire
I will arrive
Resurrected
Even more alive
