Om Shanti

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Nature’s Cathedrals



Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti (that means peace)

I say to the rising sun

Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti

 

This is the sound of the morning comin'

This is the sound of the break of day

Keep these two things in order

Everything will be okay

 

Here comes the angels of the mornin'

To spread their peace across the land

I want to fly like the angels do

How can I stop the strikin' hand?

 

See what they’ve done to my friends

Look what they’ve done to my friends

Things would have been better

If I was here to lend a hand

 

Look what they’ve done to my land

See what they’ve done to my land

Things would have been better

If I was here to lend a hand

 

I’ve seen death and destruction

Steal a town before

This one’s caught in the whirlpool

I’m not comin' back here anymore

 

Here comes the angels of the morning

Riding on the midnight wind

I want to fly like the angels do

Where do I begin?

 

Up in the sky a new light’s shining down

Looking for the righteous clan

All around we are flyin'

We’re headin' for our Promised Land

 

And I say to the sky

Good mornin' hey and howdy hee

Om shanti

 

The sky says to me

Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti

 

I say to you

Good mornin' and howdy

Om shanti
