"Karma Slave" as written by and Kasson Crooker Adam Buhler....
Today I'll be spinning on a Wheel
I'm a slave to a Wheel
And there isn't any stopping
What mistakes could I have made?
I'm a slave serving time for a life that I've forgotten.

I'm a slave of Karma
Spin the Wheel and I'm a king reborn
I'm a slave to Karma
I'm coming back, yeah, I'll be coming back
But for the last time.

Today I'm a king on the wheel
Still a slave to the Wheel
But this time around I'm smiling
Keep me cautious, keep me safe, just in case there's a chance
I can leave this Wheel behind me.
Stand in the Middle and you won't get dizzy
Stand in the Middle and you won't fall down
If you stand in the Middle you can keep your balance
Stand in the Middle while the Wheel spins round and round

I'm a slave of Karma
Spin the Wheel and I'm a king reborn
I'm a slave to Karma
I'm coming back, yeah, I'll be coming back
But for the last time.
I'm a slave of Karma
Spin the Wheel and I'm a King reborn
I'm a slave to Karma
I'm coming back, yeah, I'll be coming back
But for the last time.

How do all the Wheels inside the Wheels revolving,
Go on, and on, and on, and on, and on...
Spinning on the Wheel the souls of One evolving,
Live on, live on, live on, live on, live on...
Anyone who claims that they know the answer's coming back again...

Who's at the center of the Wheel
The inventor of the Wheel
Or another spinning servant
I'm the Master of my Wheel of my very own Wheel
Universal and recurrent

I'm a slave of Karma
Spin the Wheel and I'm a King reborn
I'm a slave to Karma
I'm coming back, yeah, I'll be coming back
But for the last time.

    General CommentThis is the first of splashdown's songs that I ever heard and I played it over and over for weeks. The concept explained is pretty simple and most of the inventiveness is in the music itself.

    General Comment"inventiness?"

    although "the concept explained is pretty simple," some people might want to hear your opinion JIC they saw it differently.

    anyhow, the song is about breaking away from being chained down to any form of fate, including Karma.

    "Today I'm a king on the Wheel
    Still a slave to the Wheel
    But this time around I'm smiling
    Keep me cautious, keep me safe, just in case there's a chance
    I can leave this Wheel behind me."

    Although her karma has improved this lifetime [king=wealth=good fortune], she is still trying to detach from the cycle. ["Leave this Wheel behind me... coming back for the last time]
