The Bigger Picture

I see all of South East Asia; I can see El Salvador
I hear the cries of children and the other songs of war
It's like a mighty melody that rings down from the sky
Standing here upon the moon I watch it all roll by...

I like the perspective he sees regarding all of the chaos and war we are wrapped up in down here, and the bigger, or "whole" picture is seen from a higher point of view.

Most meaningful lyrics, chorus edited for a shorter post

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down,
You can't let go and you can't hold on,
You can't go back and you can't stand still,
If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will.

Won't you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn't you try just a little bit more?
Won't you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn't you try just a little bit more?

Round, round robin run round, got to get back to where you belong,
Little bit harder, just a little bit more,
A little bit further than you gone before.

Small wheel turn by the fire and rod,
Big wheel turn by the grace of God,
Every time that wheel turn 'round,
Bound to cover just a little more ground.

Seems to sum up my life for me pretty darn perfectly

Mysteries dark and vast

With nothing to believe in, the compass always points to Terrapin.

real day job inspiration

don't waste your breath to save your face when you have done your best. when even more is asked of you, fate will decide the rest.
just want the cup but chicken to race
work hard in the daytime...sure get stoned at night!

IF THE LYRIC FITS..........

i have found that there is almost a dead song for every situation you may find yourself in. lots of songs about card games, judges and jail, hope-ESPECIALLY HOPE, and if you really think about it, you can apply certain songs to certain instances. go on give it a try

Words

Like Soul Change said - see here how everything leads up to this day - I already heard John Lennon say 'nowhere you can be but where you're meant to be' and this clinched it for me - I was in the right place - everything was cool - big relief after ten years shite at school

Who is Albertson Deeprun Pink Hill?

Hey Tracie -
Either your posted song tittles was coincidence or you said God Bless Albertson Deeprun Pink Hill which is what most of the begining letters of your song tilttles spelt. Is this sort of a Bertha>Greatest>Promised i.e. BGP type of thing or Im I reading inbetween the lines?
