I like part 2 where Maxi says...

"More oneness, less categories,
Open hearts, no strategies.
Decisions based upon faith and not fear.
People live right now and right here.
I want the wisdom that wise men revere."



Awesome - this is the first I've heard of them. Thanks for the link!


Agree absolutely with the comments about the album - it is excellent. Though I think Maxi is actually saying the opposite about the praying side of things:

"I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the Lord to make it all straight
theres only now
Do it right"


you may be right?....


well posted. at the risk of a pretentious namedrop, back in the days, I played warm up to Sister Bliss at a gig in Glasgow one night and felt like giving up afterwards (and it was one of the best sets I think I played). She's basically your dream girl (excepting Jenny and Emily obviously ;-)


Yeah, you're right about the lyrics Mike:

I don't need good people to pray and wait
For the lord to make it all straight
There's only now, do it right.
Cos I don't want your daddy, leaving home tonight

and also, he says:

And you ain't going to nirvana or farvana
You're coming right back here to live out your karma

Which seems to be suggesting something more along the lines of reincarnation.

Still, great song!


I know this is an old thread/blog/whatever but just so you know, Maxi is a Buddhist, like myself, and believes firmly in reincarnation, nirvana etc... so his faith inspires his lyrics.

his references to religion and God, praying and beliefs are often due to the awkwardness of living in a place where your personal faith and direction isn't a key part to society.

anywho, i shall leave now. adios!

and Faithless rule!!
