I love this song......


Galileo's head was on the block

The crime was looking up the truth

And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode

I try to trace them to my youth


And then you had to bring up reincarnation

Over a couple of beers the other night

And now I'm serving time for mistakes made by another

In another lifetime


How long till my soul gets it right

Can any human being ever reach that kind of light

I call on the resting soul

of Galileo

King of night vision

King of insight


I think about my fear of motion

Which I never could explain

Some other fool across the ocean years ago

Must have crashed his little airplane


How long till my soul gets it right

Can any human being ever reach that kind of light

I call on the resting soul

of Galileo

King of night vision

King of insight


I'm not making a joke

you know me I take everything so seriously

If we wait for the time till all souls get it right

Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihalation

in my lifetimeI'm still not right

I offer thanks to those before me

that's all I've got to say

Cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime

Now I have to pay

But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration

To let the next life off the hook

Or she'll sayLook what I had to overcome from my last life

I think I'll write a book


How long till my soul gets it right

(till my soul gets it right)Can any human being ever reach the highest light

Except for Galileo (resting soul)

Resting soul (of Galileo)

King of night vision

King of insight

I love this line, Tim.
I totally related to it.
Loved the whole thing. (AND that you said howdy on my page! I heart when you visit!)

we're supposed to be getting it "right"?

crap.

too much control is a bad thing you know.

let's hope the airline pilots are super-relaxed for example but not so much so that they're asleep.
