Following on the heels of the Gentle Soul album, which had many references to her relationship with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and her steadfast practice as a meditator, The Rescuer is another nod to her teacher and to the benefits of spiritual practice.

lyrics

The Rescuer
(Pamela Polland)

Well, I heard somebody callin' out to me
And they said, "won't you help me, won't you help me, please,
Because I'm standin' here in the darkness, and I can hardly see
And I need somebody to come and rescue me."

Well, the night was hollow and the night was long
But i could not tell where this man went wrong
I had to find my way in the darkness, but I could hardly see
I needed somebody to come and rescue me.

Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness
What's the good of two men being lost in the night
Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man
Don't go too far and step out of the Light,
Or you might need a rescuer.

Shine a little light, shine a little light in the darkness
And help the blind to finally see
If somebody's locked up, be a rescuer and go get the key!!

Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness
What's the good of two men being lost in the night
Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man
Don't go too far and step out of the Light,
Or you might need a rescuer.
Oh, yes you will!

Now, now's the time to be a rescuer
Now, now's the time to be a rescuer
Don't, don'tcha get lost, or you might need a rescuer
