"Satisfied" as written by and Van Morrison....
Let's go walkin' up that mountainside
Look down in the valley down below
And we survey this wondrous scene
Wait a minute
Hold that dream.
Hold that dream.
Don't want to change my name and write a book
Just like Catcher in the Rye
Settle down in a shady nook
Talkin' to my baby now
I'm satisfied
With my world
Cause I made it
The way it is.
Satisfied (Satisfied.)
Inside.
Go to the mountain
Come back to the city
Where a whole lot of things
Don't look very pretty
Spiritual hunger and spiritual thirst
But you got to change it
On the inside first
To be satisfied
To be satisfied
Sometimes I think I know where it's at
Other times I'm completely in the dark
You know, baby, cause and effect
I got my karma from here right to New York
I'm satisfied
With my world
Cause I made it
The way it is
Satisfied (Satisfied)
Inside.
Sometimes I think I know how it is
Other times I'm completely in the dark
You know, baby, cause and effect
I've got my karma from here right to New York
I'm satisfied
Cause I made it
The way it is
I'm satisfied (satisfied)
Inside

    My OpinionSatisfaction - a much sought after condition. The Rolling Stones struggled to find it but in this song Van seems to be almost there. A great funky / blues sound and much underrated track from an equally underrated album. Van said at the time of being knighted that this was the album he was most proud of when the musicians and the sound all came together resulting in this exemplary piece of work.

    He sounds like a theologian when he sings "Spiritual hunger and spiritual thirst, But you got to change it, On the inside first, To be satisfied". Ordinary religion dresses up the man from the outside whilst Christianity, by contrast, changes the man from the inside out.
