I was observing a friend and his befriending of a distressed girl and had concerns about the wisdom of his comforting her. Having already writen the first verse I then found out to my distress that the relationship had developed to the point that it threatened his marriage. So here you have a song more poinient than you would otherwise realise.

You can see a movie of Salt Solution playing 'My Mind has Hands' live at the Kingston Festival.

'My Mind has Hands'                        by Martin Day

A tearful girl, a word of calm,
An awful secret, a comforting arm.
A burden shared, a problem solved,
But are you getting too involved.

        Strip my motives to the bone
        And there a straying thought disown.
        Hand to hand in the combat zone,
        'Cause my mind has hands of it's own.

Imagination, a breading ground.
From nurtured ideas, desires abound.
You can't indulge them and hide them away.
The thoughts of your heart, your actions betray...
                                                          ...they betray.
