Transformation - Lyrics from

Transformation

Track 7 from Curse of Mercury [Play Transformation]

I think of this tune as Song 1 on Side 2–if you remember the days of LP’s, where when you’ve gotten through the obvious cuts on Side 1 and now that you’ve flipped it over you expect to hear what “they” really wanted to put on the record. This tune is a pretty literal statement, about letting go of, holding on, clinging and possessiveness that thwarts growth. I also had a poem I needed to put somewhere and this looked like a good place to use it.

Transformation 4:14

I don’t know why I can’t let go
Let go of you
I know I should, but it’s no good
I don’t know why I can’t let go
Let go of you

I’m lookin’ for the absolution of my soul
I’m lookin’ for some integration of the opposite poles
I’m workin’ on the transformation that’ll make me whole

Whole, make me whole, make me …
Make me whole, make me whole again, make me whole

Everyone is asleep and the Full Moon wanders
The same dusty books lie against themselves on the shelves
Like we lie against one another
As we lie against one another

Contact transform calling out for
Contact transform holding on now
Contact transform calling out for
Contact transform holding on now

While you wander I’ll be waiting here
While you wander on and on

I am awake now and sense your Full Moon power
Like the tide I pull up against your shore
But you and your Moon wane
And I too retreat into my own depths
The depths of which we can not fathom
Or why your Full Moon wanders

While you wander I’ll be waiting here
While you wonder on and on
