‘Floating on the peddello of life’

The sun glints on the water, the birds are in the air,
Your nose supports the Foster-Grants that filter out the glare.
Your steering’s ineffective, but you don’t really care.
Although you know not what’s ahead, the current takes you there…
… Floating on the peddello of life.

The peddello is drifting towards the waterfall.
The peddling makes no difference, there’s no headway at all.
To swim away’s the answer; the answer’s not recalled.
Your grip upon your destiny appears a little small…
… Floating on the peddello of life.

There’s more to Christianity than filling up a pew.
Jesus has got a store of works, of good for you to do.
You have the choice to change your course by starting off anew,
Or stay aboard your peddello and contemplate the view…
… Floating on the peddello of life.

A splendid Salt Solution song. It’s just a shame we never got around to recording it.

It’s a warning against giving up control to the general flow of life.

From concert in Chippenham in 1986 Salt Solution perform the otherwise unrecorded song ‘Floating on the Pedello of Life‘.
