about

Tuning: DAEF#AD. This song is about using entheogens for soul searching and shamanism. You can hear a sample of Chris' friend Bachir Attar (Master Musicians of Jajouka) tuning his gimbri during the intro section.

lyrics

"Soma Tea"
words and music by Chris Knudson

Somewhere else
Someone else.
A nagging vision slams the door
A lonely vision yearns for more.

Such an aroma you see
Take a sip of the Soma tea.

Someway else
God, something else.
A heartfelt clock rings so long
The ticking clock just wants a little song.

Such an aroma you see
Take a sip of the Soma tea.

Body trembles. Hair bristles off my flesh
My bow and arrow lies there in despair.
She vacuums up the pieces of my soul
The poison stings - it burns - but I'm feeling whole

Such an aroma you see
Take a sip of the Soma tea.
Such an aroma you see
I took a sip of the Soma tea.
