"Soul Song" as written by and Shuggie Otis....
I'll be waiting
With a song in my soul
A fortunate weakling
Which I have foretold

He raises his arms tied
Above the oppressed
Singing this sweet song
His melody opened up the sun

And freedom rained
God has come
With the rivers of blood
Pushed back in my veins
She sleeps with her eyes closed
To dream of the past
Her mind has gone blind now
Her memory closes up the sun

    General CommentQuite prepared, indeed! Could he possibly be waiting for Salvation from Christ? Then again, ahhh... What would I know? I'm an athiest.

    General CommentBut, it does show some strong signs pointing to God. Besides mentioning his name twice.

    Sorry for the second post. Annoying, I'm quite aware.

    General CommentHe raises his arms tied,
    Above the opressed
    Singing his sweet song,
    His melody opens up the sun

    D'you think this part could be about Christ?

    General CommentI believe this song is about an execution taking place. The man's arms are tied and he knows what the future holds for him.
