Mindful – Lyrics

There’s a chance that one can loose direction
To every calculated choice reaction
I have seen the depth a man can fall
And I have seen the image of God
(I’ve seen the image of God)
There can always be the answered question
The “Yes” or “No” or “Wait in quiet reflection”
You can find it in the Book, if you’re willing to look
Look through the spirit of your mind

[Intro with acoustic and slide guitars by Jamie Wilson, tabla by Prakash Kandasamy, and ghatam by Kirubakaran]

[Joined by Samuel J. Dass on sitar]

Mindful of the thoughts that pass through me
(Moves the center of my being)
Just like the wind that sways the tree
(In the garden of the…)
The good and evil nature
(Where serpent and the savior)
Advocates eternal life
(And within remains the strife)
I’m mindful of the thoughts that pass through me

[Musical break with guitar by Jamie Wilson and sitar by Samuel J. Dass]

Mindful of the eyes for what it sees
(It’s the window to the soul)
Just like a stream that leads to sea
(In the ocean sailing)
The weather is your master
(To avoid the end disaster)
Watch out for the one-eyed monster
(Every question needs an answer)
Be mindful of the eyes for what it sees

There’s a chance that one can loose direction
To every calculated choice reaction
I have seen the depth a man can fall
And I have seen the image of God
(I’ve seen the image of God)
There can always be the answered question
The “Yes” or “No” or “Wait in quiet reflection”
You can find it in the Book, if you’re willing to look
Look through the spirit of your mind

[Musical interlude with sitar by Samuel J. Dass]

…the spirit of your mind…

[Slide guitar solo by Jamie Wilson]

Mindful of the tongue for what it says
(For it is a flame of fire)
Like a landmine in a field
(Blowing up invaders)
That dare to tread in danger
(The loved one or the stranger)
Finds its temperamental nature
(Cut and dry or slow to anger)
Be mindful of the tongue for what it says

Let your heart begin to find direction
In every calculated choice reaction
If you’ve seen the depth a man can fall
Or have you seen the image of God
(You see the image of God)
Your heart will always find an answered question
The “Yes” or “No” or “Wait in quiet reflection”
You can find it in the Book, if you’re willing to look
Look through the spirit of your mind
