Gerry Coogan songs

A work in progress...
This is a monitor mix of a recording that the band made in the Head Hunters studio in Glasgow.
Kyle, Woody, Bob and I played along to give Dev a guide as he laid down his drum parts.  It's by no means the finished version but it will do for just now. 
It will have to.


The theme of seeking enlightenment and spiritual confirmations is a central part of the Man At The Window outlook.
That’s why there is a Man at the Window.
He’s looking.
The independent investigation of truth, free from preconceptions and prejudices, is regarded by the Windowman Posse as being essential to the very purpose of existence.

“Maya” is a Sanskrit word for an Eastern philosophical concept which regards much of what is perceived as “reality” as being mere illusion. We appear to agree with that idea, although that may in itself be an illusion. Nevertheless, the aim of distinguishing between what is essential to our spiritual progress and what is peripheral, or even detrimental, is present in all the major world religious teachings. Or so it appears. At least, it seems to appear that way. Perhaps it’s all a dream…

In so far as it’s possible to know these things, the rhythm guitar is apparently played by Kyle, or at least by someone who looks like Kyle.  Bob is considered to be responsible for the lead guitar, although we should not rule out the very real possibility that he is a computer-generated hologram, if there really is such a thing. I am more certain that I'm doing the keyboards and singing the lead vocal, although that could be explained by false memory syndrome. We tentatively believe that Woody played the bass lines, assuming that they exist, which cannot be absolutely guaranteed, but we think they may, at least it sounds like they do.
We’re not so sure now...

Soul Searching

(Words and Music by Gerry Coogan and Kyle Robertson)


You’re still searching and I believe in you, yes I do,
And you know this feeling is surely meant for you.
So if you seek you will find and all will be revealed that’s true
Embrace this infinite love that is sure to pull you through.

As you are soul, soul searching, yes I.
Soul, soul searching now.
Soul, soul searching now, yes I.
Soul, soul searching now.
So much love in you.

Let not the material nor the maya take a hold, oh no.
Feel the spirit of this love, let the inner you unfold,
Sail upon that mystic sea till you reach your journey’s end,
Sanctified from time and space, may you feel the calm descend.

As you are soul, soul searching.
Soul, soul searching now.
Soul, soul searching, yes I.
Soul, soul searching now.
So much love in you.

Seeker! Look for your path.
Jah know! Look in your heart.
Jah say, search in your soul,
We were born for greater things!

And you are soul, soul searching.
Soul, soul searching, yeah.
You are soul, soul searching, yes you are.
Soul, soul searching.
So much love in you.

Soul, soul, soul, soul searching now.
Soul, soul, soul, soul searching now.
Soul, soul, soul, soul searching now.
