Funkadelic – Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts lyrics
Travel like a king
Listen to the inner voice
A higher wisdom is at work for you
Conqering the stumbling blocks come easier
When the conqueror is in tune with the infinite
Every ending is a new beginning
Life is an endless unfoldment
Change your mind, and you change your relation to time
You can find the answer
The solution lies within the problem
The answer is in every question
Dig it?
An attitude is all you need to rise and walk away
Inspire yourself
Your life is yours
It fits you like your skin
The oak sleeps in the acorn
The giant sequoia tree sleeps in its tiny seed
The bird waits in the egg
God waits for his unfoldment in man
Fly on, children
Play on
You gravitate to that which you secretly love most
You meet in life the exact reproduction of your own thoughts
There is no chance, coincidence or accident
In a world ruled by law and divine order
You rise as high as your dominant aspiration
You descend to the level of your lowest concept of your self
Free your mind and your ass will follow
The infinite intelligence within you knows the answers
Its nature is to respond to your thoughts
Be careful of the thought-seeds you plant in the garden of your mind
For seeds grow after their kind
Play on, children
Every thought felt as true
Or allowed to be accepted as true by your conscious mind
Take roots in your subconscious
Blossoms sooner or later into an act
And bears its own fruit
Good thoughts bring forth good fruit
Bullshit thoughts rot your meat
Think right, and you can fly
The kingdom of heaven is within
Free your mind, and your ass will follow
Play on, children
Sing on, lady

    This song was written after a discussion on religion I had with the band. When I said that the kingdom of heaven was within, and that we make our own hell by our thoughts, eddie hazel asked who told me that. I said I didn't know. 37 years later I found out that I had died in an emergency room and was brought back to "life". That must be where I learned about this because I had no formal religious training. "Sing on, lady" is what eddie used to say when he wanted me to tell him more.

    It appears to me that the song reflects an incomplete contemplation about truth, thoughts, natural revelation, and divine order. It sounds good because it has nothing to compare it with. It must have a starting point in order to have true value. By itself, it just sounds good, but when compared to the true theology of say, Christianity, it is just incomplete. It does not necessarily conflict with true, Biblical theology (except when it states that God is waiting for His unfoldment with man), yet the main problem is it makes the writer of the song the source of supernatural knowledge. While the entire P-Funk experience is ahead it its time, it is still a product of time with its flaws. I enjoy the song, yet do not rely on P-Funk for elaboration on spirituality. That will only come from your personal relationship with God, through His Son, Christ Jesus the Lord!
