About…

This song aims to capture the positive, adventurous qualities of Type Seven with just a hint of gluttony and a dash of forward planning on the side. It expresses the difficulty experienced when we see the world as having far too many possibilities to be explored, feeling limited in what we can experience and fearing being trapped in pain. This song highlights the defence mechanism of ‘rationalisation’ – explaining away our attempts to escape form the difficult aspects of life in the hope of avoiding pain. The chorus takes us to the relief experienced when we realise that being fully present here and now provides the freedom we have been searching for. It points to steadiness and ultimately, sustained concentration, as gateways to presence. More about Type Seven…

Lyrics

‘Vamos!’ [Let’s go!]


Don’t say I can’t do that

Possibilities are where I’m at

I have a genius for living free

Don’t you wanna be like me?

 

This fascinating world, all within my reach

Don’t try to fence me in

Don’t wanna hear you preach

I want more to taste & see

But all these choices overwhelm me…..Cos I know

 

Where I am is the place to be

The grass may not be greener

But it’s here I am free

I’ll live in the moment, that’s my solemn vow

Viva la Vida in the freedom of now!

 

‘Ven, baila conmigo!’ [Come, dance with me!]

 

Which plan to choose? So much to know

No time to lose, We can’t take it slow

Don’t get me down, Let’s keep it light

See a silver lining, on the darkest night….but I know

Chorus

I’ve tried to justify escaping pain,

But I’m only fooling me again & again!

Cos Where I am is the best place to be!

The grass may not be  greener

But it’s here I am free

I’ll live in the moment, that’s my solemn vow

Viva la Vida…

 

Where I am is the only place to be!

The grass may not be greener

But it’s here I feel free

I’ll live in the moment, that’s my solemn vow

Viva la Vida…

I’m livin’ in the moment, yes I finally know how!

Viva la Vida in the freedom of now!

 

‘Soy libre, aqui y ahora!’ [I’m free, here and now!]
