Happy Rhodes - The Keep (1995) - 05 - "Save Our Souls" (acoustic)



Save Our Souls (6:00)
Echoes Living Room Concert series, Spring 1995
Original version on Equipoise (1993)

We give to you a disc of gold
It represents the dreams we hold
We'll tell our children what to do
We'll show them how to listen for you

Please feel free to call
Our wheatfields await you all

We are the number one offender
Of specieism and yet
Here we are reaching out for aliens
Looking for our salvation

Pity our emptiness

Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls

We think that we're superior
To every living thing
It can be lonely at the top
So we look for higher praise to sing

Won't you just say hello
We'll give to you a cable show
We have weapons to intimidate
You if you look afright
Come on down and see our
Zoos and refugee camps
Ain't it worth your time

Oh pity our emptiness

Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls
Oh save our souls

SOS
SOS

Please feel free to call
Our wheatfields await you all

We are the number one offender
Of specieism and yet
Here we are reaching out for aliens
Looking for our salvation

Oh pity our emptiness

Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls
Save our souls

SOS
SOS

Well, there's a beacon in the sky
Meant to catch your eye

Note:
This acoustic version of this song has a different ending. Instead of "Meant to catch their eye" as in the

original, she now sings "Meant to catch your eye," turning the perspective of the song.

* Originally recorded for Equipoise (AGCD0019) in full regalia, an acoustic trio re-recorded it for

RhodeSongs (AGCD0021), and here even still another version by "The Spacier, The Better Band" for the

Echoes Living Room Concert Series. Great songs never die, they just keep getting arranged or deranged, as

the case may be. This year's model.

* Happy Rhodes - vox, acoustic guitar
* Kevin Bartlett - electric guitar, loops
* Carl Adami - bass, devices
