Geraldine and John (cover Joe Jackson)

Geraldine and John

See the bright red sportscar, see the happy couple,

See their clothes so white and their skin so pink,

See them playin’ squash, gotta keep their bodies supple,

Now they kiss goodnight, but tomorrow they’ll be thinkin’,

all day long, all day long,


Geraldine and John, see the happy couple, so inseparable,

and the beat goes on, and for better or for worse,

they are married but of course, not to each other…


Geraldine and John gotta keep it under cover,

see they scheme and sweat, but it’s all worthwhile,

now he goes back home to a wife who’s not a lover,

now her eyes are wet, but tomorrow she’ll be smilin’,

all day long, all day long…


Geraldine and John, see the happy couple, so insuperable,

and the beat goes on, and for better or for worse,

they are married but of course, not to each other…

and the feeling’s getting stronger,

that they can’t go on much longer,

somewhere down the track, something has to crack…


Geraldine just packed all her things and went to mother,

but Johnny seems okay, happy wife, happy home,

see the scar on his face from the day he met her brother,

but nothing hurts no more, nothing more than being lonely,

all day long, all day long…


Friendship (GerBard)

This song is about my view on Friendship…

Real Friendship is about loving someone for their intrinsic value.

When I think about friendship, I feel togetherness in soul’s caress,

When I think about friendship, I feel security,

When I think about friendship, I see someone who’ll stay, even if I radically change my way,

Someone loyal like a knight, someone warm like a fire on a winter’s night,

Someone who’ll stay, even if I radically change my way,

someone loving you in spite of strife, beyond the border of this earthly life,

Transcendant (Gerbard)

Maybe you’re busy right now
goin’after you goals…

Maybe you’re feelin’ so low
and there’s no one around…

Maybe you’re thinkin’ and thinkin’ and
you can’t find a way out…

but whatever you do, whatever you feel, whatever you think,
just remember to embody the transcendant, is why we’re here.(2x)

So focus on your breath and watch the thoughts on the screen of your mind,
in order to find, the silent observer, who is already kind.(2x)

This song is purely about enlightenment: because nothing outside can ever give you, what you’re lookin’ for. IT IS ALREADY THERE INSIDE OF YOU, THE SILENT OBSERVER WATCHING THE THOUGHTS ON YOUR MIND GO BY, LIKE CLOUDS AGAINST A BLUE SKY.
I’m NOT saying that thinking is not important, it is: to solve problems, BUT IT IS NOT WHAT WE ARE.
I can really feel a sense of transcendence. Can you feel it?

Loyal to Myself (GerBard)

My way to happiness? stay true and loyal to yourself

The church said a soul is worth more than the whole wide world,

with my brothers and my sisters one big family,

I thought we’d stay together for eternity,

But when I didn’t fit into society, always ruled by fear and insecurity,

cause they taught me to see, feelings as a part of my souls identity,

and with the lack of insight and bigotry,

they just turned their back on me,

at first I took it just quietly, before I started to fight back intellectually,

keeping my integrity…

so I stayed loyal to myself, loyal to myself, caus’ I knew I was worth it,

learned to listen to myself, instead of everyone else, had the power to decide it… (2x)

Lonely and Betrayed, a song about old convictions (GerBard)

Lonely and Betrayed (GerBard)

A song about about old convictions…

I felt lonely and betrayed, even after I’d regained real consciousness;

kept thinkin’ I just wasn’t heard, although I had sincerely prayed;

listening at the altar to a word, that didn’t come from God.

So this was not enough, I still feel the anger and I’m about to get rough,

but if you are a Father, then why did you let me go astray?

So this was not enough, to get through to you,

but if you are a Father or is this not even true?

Although I had been thinkin’ in, found consciousness within,

my mind wants to hold on,

to views that have proved wrong…

Die Suche nach dem Jenseits (GerBard)

Niemand weet echt, wat er na dit leven komt… maar je kunt wel degelijk je bewustzijn scherpen: ofwel zoeken.

1.Sich mit dem Jenseits zu befassen, ich hab’ es schon sooft gehört, es sei besser davon abzulassen, weil doch niemand zurückgekehrt, und die Kirche predigt Angst vor einer Hölle, und ein fernes Paradies; doch ihre Bibel enthält auch Versprechen, suchet so werdet ihr finden, und das heißt, dass die Frage des Jenseits, beantwortet werden kann,


Hast du schon gesucht, wie Jeremiah sagt, von deinem ganzen Herzen, oder hast du ’s nicht einmal, wirklich so versucht (2x)

2.Sich dieser Suche ganz zu widmen, ist gar nicht leicht getan, man kann der Werbung nicht entkommen, mit der wir alle überschwemmt, doch in der Sintflut der Produkte, hab’ ich eines stets vermisst, Freude ohne Anlass, das ist, was du bist, und das kann man nicht kaufen, denn das ist was du bist,

Und wie wär’s wenn, wie wärs wenn, wenn sich Jenseits und Paradies, in deinem Herzen finden ließ….

Real Freedom, GerBard

This song describes, how I spiritually and mentally found my way out of a sektarian church towards real consciousness!

Not until a really saw that the church was not the voice of God,
could I start working on myself;
in order to get closer to whatever truth,
in order to get rid of uninvestigated shit,
that’s just what I did;
searching, studying, training, meditating, meditating,
to finally find deep behind the thoughts on the screen of my mind,
the silent observer understanding and kind…
So this was my transformation,
knowing how to be, witness of the mind and any(e)motion,
now I could rely on myself,
instead of seeking validation of someone else…
This feels like freedom…
this feels like freedom…
this feels like freedom…
