"Seven Rays" as written by and Todd/siegler Rundgren....
My great grandfather was a satisfied man
Contented in every way
Such was the course of his everyday life
'Til he heard of the seven rays (Repeat 3X)

Every modern man, in the back of his mind
Has a problem to face
He wants security for the home in his head
All he needs is the seven rays (Repeat 2X)

And when you think about tomorrow
What goes through your mind?
Now don't nobody get uptight
Do you think that we can put up
With this shit one more night
All you need is just six more rays (Repeat 2X)

Take one beam of light
Prism acquire
Break the white light down
Seven rays appear (Repeat)

One, Red, the ruler seeking freedom
Two, Gold, the father seeking unity
Three, Orange, the thinker seeking understanding
Four, Yellow, the poet seeking harmony

Take the seven rays
Pure as fire
Focus anywhere
White light will appear (Repeat 2X)

Five, Green, the scientist seeking truth
Six, Blue, the disciple seeking goodness
Seven, Indigo, the artist seeking beauty

This may sound like a bunch of trumped up words
But we keep no secrets today
The only hope for you is in your brothers, my friend
All you need is just six more rays
All we need is the seven rays (Repeat 3X)

    General CommentThis song is based on the author Alice Bailey's thoughts regarding the Seven Rays of energy, as follows:

    1. The Lord of Power or Will
    2. The Lord of Love-Wisdom
    3. The Lord of Active Intelligence
    4. The Lord of Harmony, Beauty and Art
    5. The Lord of Concrete Knowledge and Science
    6. The Lord of Devotion and Idealism
    7. The Lord of Ceremonial Order or Magic

    The concept of the seven rays can also be found in Theosophical works. Joseph Campbell writes that Bailey, "...was the first to develop the idea of the seven rays, although it can be found in germ in earlier Theosophical writings." The seven rays also appear in Hindu religious philosophy.
