This is a crazy reggae song about taking LSD in the seventies - I'm not recommending it - quite the opposite but I don't regret it! You'll find this track on my album At The Healing Tree or individually on iTunes. Hope you like the video!

Floating on the ceiling looking down at my bed
Saw myself lying there as if I was dead
Couldn’t move a muscle, couldn’t open my eyes
My feet were in the kitchen but my head was in the sky

You don’t need drugs to have hallucinations
You don’t need drugs to have hallucinations

Travelling in my van in nineteen seventy-three
I heard the sunset singing in Germany
The swaying corn joined in in perfect harmony
My heart and soul took flight, I had set them free

You don’t need drugs to have hallucinations
You don’t need drugs to have hallucinations

At Glastonbury Festival (the very first one)
Rolling in the mud in nineteen seventy-one
I was the acid queen of Bristol
Way before you were born……

Climbing up the Avon Gorge to have a cup of tea
I thought there was a café at The Observatory
Snowflakes on the ground that were as big as your hand
As if God Almighty, waved his magic wand

You don’t need drugs to have hallucinations

If life is but a dream what is reality?
Hope I find the answer deep inside of me
If life is but a game what is reality?
Hope I find the answer deep inside of me

You don’t need drugs to have communication
You don’t need drugs to have imagination
You don’t need drugs to have illumination
You don’t need drugs to have realisation

At Glastonbury Festival (the very first one)
Rolling in the mud in nineteen seventy-one
I was the acid queen of Bristol
Way before you were born
Before you were born
Before you were born….

Over The Moon
Here's my latest track - my only reggae song so far - a song which is a throw back to the druggy days of the late 60/70s. Hope you enjoy it!

before talking about the work Chandra does and this song, I like to say Chandra is one of the positive and caring people here at IMP, her attitude and respect to others is admirable.She is very aware of how to point out things on the pipeline in a sage and respectful way, big props, as for this song, so much to love, and first off the vocals are so inviting, energetic and clearly sung. The instrumentation top drawer and songcrafting excellent, this is a feel good song that lifts your spirits and refreshes your mind. well done Chandra. carry on your god works. more power to ya! bryon
