Planetary Spirals -  Singer/Songwriter John Lee

New MP3 Downloads

I will be releasing two songs every two weeks from my seventh album 'Outside the Outsiders', free to download. It was recorded during the years 2017/18 and encompasses topics affecting many of us today, such as Brexit, climate change, the refugee crisis, isolation, loneliness and hopefully shines a dim light of hope in these demanding times. Thanks for listening and enjoy the music Peace:)

Daily Poem – Once Upon a Time

  • once there was no time at all
  • something eclipsed the sky
  • was it mind or matter
  • inside the hovering eye
  • upside down,inside out
  • looking in the reflection to see
  • an image of a being
  • independant and free
  • for when a tree falls with no one to hear
  • does it make a sound, if no mind is near
  • for the mind is a creation
  • and the wisdom instilled
  • for matter is moved
  • by the mind revealed.

Daily Poem – ‘Love’

  • I believe in love
  • for love does not judge
  • I believe in personality
  • I believe in you
  • I believe in heaven
  • But do I believe in god
  • do angels guard our hearts
  • in the billion burning suns
  • does love travel on
  • does love , does love live on…………….

Searching For The Truth – A Discussion

Somethings cannot be explained and these interest me more than any fact or accepted truth called history. Education isn’t a bad thing, I appreciate being able to read and write , but why aren’t we taught about unseen or alternative history. Is there some conspiracy to cover up the truth,. But what is the truth what do solitary monks wish to find, what is enlightenment , maddness?!. George Orwell was eerily accurate with his novel 1984, to think diffrently is a crime or to even think at all , why are we bombarded with a lifestlye we can’t afford, do we aspire to be celebrities.

Hegelian Dialectic

Chapter One – Memories
A declaration of love from son to mother, the innocence of love and the question of mortality. Witnessing the loss of life and realising the precious moments that have passed by. The fight between wisdom and materialism , the future of a galaxy of stars. The individual looks towards love and the feeling of emptiness that stands before him, will he comprimise or stand by his inherited love.

Global Environment Update

Russian giant Gazprom has shipped the world’s first offshore artic oil into europe. Greenpeace activists were there to protest along with thousands of others. It is show of corporate greed and shows how far these companies will go in there quest for black gold. Also the amazonian rainforest is being endlessly plundered with no conscience, much of the illegally obtained hardwood is used as garden decking and deforestation rose by 28% last year. Land is also converted to enormous farms and fires create this space.

Thoughts and Reflections – Nature

It’s been a tough year with the loss of my mum and recently my grandma. It puts everything into perspective and to quote from the great Pearl Jam song, ‘Sirens’ , “it’s a fragile thing this life that we lead”, sums it up for me at the moment. It’s hard to understand this world during such times, you have to dig deep and find some purpose to go forward. I’ve been walking in the mountains and getting lost in the wild, it’s soothing for the soul and enables my thought processes to settle.

Diary of Creativity 27

It’s been an emotional year and my guitar has been an anchor during this time. Creativity is a release where the negative can become a positive. Working on a new project called ‘Panspermia’, I’ve written 4-5 songs so far with titles such as fear and love, hurricane and all I want. I’m still immersed in my current project, Hegelian Dialectic, continually expanding the storyline. Thanks for reading and listening to my music it means alot. Cheers.
