Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm living in the material world
Living in the material world
Verse 2
can't say what I'm doing here
But I hope to see much clearer,
After living in the material world
Verse 3
I got born into the material world
Getting worn out in the material world
Use my body like a car,
Taking me both near and far
Met my friends all in the material world
Verse 4
Met them all there in the material world
John and Paul here in the material world
Though we started out quite poor
We got 'Richie' on a tour
Got caught up in the material world
Verse 5
From the Spiritual Sky,
Such sweet memories have I
To the Spiritual Sky
How I pray
Yes I pray
That I won't get lost
Or go astray
Verse 6
As I'm fated for the material world
Get frustrated in the material world
Senses never gratified
Only swelling like a tide
That could drown me in the
Material world
Verse 7
From the Spiritual Sky,
Such sweet memories have I
To the Spiritual Sky
How I pray
Yes I pray
That I won't get lost
Or go astray
Verse 8
While I'm living in the material world
Not much 'giving' in the material world
Got a lot of work to do
Try to get a message through
And get back out of this material world
Verse 9
I'm living in the material world
Living in the material world
I hope to get out of this place
By the LORD SRI KRSNA'S GRACE
My salvation from the material world
Big Ending
