The Oudmon Story
Press Release (pdf) (Word)

Christopher's music subtly conveys a sense of spirituality and self-inquiry. Strong melodies, solid rhythms and richly textured harmonies make a powerful backdrop for personal evolution. REMAINS TO BE SEEN  offers unique ways of expressing the growing pains of a world on the brink of evolving beyond itself. With deceptively simple lyrics, Christopher plumbs the mysteries of the heart. This is music you'll want to hear again and again.

LOVE’S AROUND THE CORNER
Christopher Taylor

Why walk away when you’re feeling you’re so close?
Why walk away when you are feeling you are low?
Once in a lifetime, and once in a dream
For once in your lifetime believe in your dreams
Love – love’s around the corner
Love – love’s around the corner

Why walk alone when you’re feeling you’re so close?
Why hide away – when you’re seeing you will know
Once in a lifetime, and once in a dream
For once in your lifetime believe in your dreams
Love – love’s around the corner
Love – love’s around the corner

Why walk away anymore when love’s a round the corner.
Why hide anymore when love’s around the corner.

COME TO THE CENTER
Christopher Taylor

Go, stop, yes, no
Yo, what’s up my friend, tell me more

Come to the center of yourself
Then you’ll see, then you’ll know
Live from the center of your heart
Then you’re free, let it show

Live, die, laugh, cry
Yo, what’s the rush
Can you play a little more?
North, south, east, west

Come to the center of yourself
Then you’ll see, then you’ll know
Live from the center of your heart
Then your free, let it show

THE SUN SHINES
Christopher Taylor/Johnny Om

Die to yourself
And free your soul
Decide for yourself and no one else.

Find a way to honesty
Judge not what you see and let it go.
Speak the words that set you free
That are meant to be yours alone.

The sun shines all the time
No reason or no rhyme
It’s only in your mind

Trust in the wind
Found in the sky

OUDMON
Christopher Taylor

Oudmon is a happy man, Oudmon
Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Oudmon
Oudmon is a jolly man, Oudmon
Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Hari Bol, Oudmon

ALL OF ME
Christopher Taylor

I can find my way
I can see today
As I open up my heart with you
You can have all of me for today
You can have all of me
Love me your way

I can listen…and know you
As I open up my eyes with you
You can have all of me for today
I have everything, show me the way
You can have all of me for today
I have everything – love me your way

LET IT DROP
Christopher Taylor

I've taken two steps forward, I took one to the rear
My past is back, it's time to change it here
It comes around the corner when I least expect it
Goodness grace without any exceptions
To the rules and to the games
(Chorus)
It's comin' up, it's comin' out
It's comin' out from the inside out
It's movin' up, it's movin' out
And I let it drop to the ground

I watch this movie I see the play
And it spins around my head until it drives me crazy
I let it drop to the ground
Let it drop yeah

You know it spins around my head
You know it spins around my head
You know it spins around

I'm looking around the block for some new directions
Maybe this maybe that can I find my connection
To the one that I see in the silver of the mirror
To the one that I hear deep down in there

FATE
Christopher Taylor/ Johnny Om

All the fallen angels got together, man,
for a soiree on the promenade.
But who come and crash the party?
No one else but God.

I said hold on, anybody know what time we're leaving?
Hold on, anybody know what gate?
Hold on, anybody know where I left my suitcase?
Hold on – fate.

All the fallen angels took the elevator
and they asked the elevator man:
"Can you take us back to the top again?"
he said: "You tell me if I can!"

I said hold on, anybody know what time we're leaving?
Hold on, anybody know what gate?
Hold on, anybody know where I left my suitcase?
Hold on…
Sometimes I wonder if up and down’s confused;
sometimes I run from my own shoes – yes I do
Sometimes I question just what there is to lose;
I realize that it’s way too much and I’m back to see it thru.

anybody know what time we’re leaving?
anybody know what gate?
anybody know where you left your suitcase?
Fate.

All the fallen angels had a meeting, man,
they gonna jam about what to do,
and they come to the same conclusion:
there’s nowhere to be fallin’ to.

I said hold on
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on...

I said hold on, anybody know what time we’re leaving?
Hold on, anybody know what gate?
Hold on, anybody know where I left my suitcase?
Hold on – fate.

LIVING IN A SAVAGE WORLD
Christopher Taylor/ Johnny Om

Uh–huh uh-huh – living in a savage world
Uh–huh uh-huh – the blood we shed forever lost

When I’m alone, on my own
Take me, take me, take me, take me home

Uh –huh uh-huh – the one we fight is not our foe
Uh –huh uh-huh – we fight ourselves and this alone

By myself, no one else
Take me, take me, take me, take me home

ELEVATOR MAN
Christopher Taylor

I need a new set of wheels
to get me back where I belong
A sad heart to heal
So I can see the numbers on the wall

Elevator Man he talks with the crowd
He speaks with a smile, he'll hold your hand
He'll take you anywhere it's up to you
He's here for the ride, there's no suprise
He's been around a million times
And has a number just for you

He's the Elevator Man and he'll take your hand
He's the Elevator Man
And he knows what's good in you

I need to slow down and heal what's inside
That's buggin' me, what I am feeling
So I can see the writing on the wall

Elevator Man he talks with the crowd
He speaks with a smile, he'll hold your hand
He'll take you anywhere it's up to you
He's here for the ride, there's no disguise
He's been around a million times
And he's standing right inside of you
(Chorus)

COME ALONG
Christopher Taylor

Walk into the night
See into the day
Help is on the way
Your dreams are here today
Come along...

Fly into the sky
Far beyond your mind
Love is here today
Your dreams, a moment away
Come along...

MY SOLUTION
Christopher Taylor/ Brian Lambert/ Johnny Om

Underneath your influence, high
I have finally opened my eyes
I have lived through such painful years
And I've shown you some of my tears
My solution, evolution – my solution, evolution

Trying oh so hard to find peace
Trying this and that for relief
Stuck in quicksand means time to believe
Is this the light or is this a dream?
My solution, evolution – my solution, evolution

Is love what I am waiting for –
what I need to believe in?
I'm not one to say anything,
but I know what I'm feeling.

Has the question knocked at your door?
Is your life beached on rocky shores?
Heaven's way will never deny
if I keep my hands stretched up high.
My solution, evolution – my solution, evolution

MY STATE OF MIND
Christopher Taylor/ Patrick Hurley

Do you ever wish upon a star
And ever wonder who you are?
And life can seem so unkind
Or in a moment, it can shine
Everything changes, it's my state of mind
Everything's movin', I'm just passing
Through time

Let me take you on a ride
Beyond space, beyond your mind
See the wonders, it's your ride, inside

And everytime I feel love
Today I'm finding where it's from
So every day I'm movin' on
To find my treasures from the sun

(Chorus)


The Oudmon Story

Oudmon was written some time ago when one of Christopher’s housemates was a young man with Down’s syndrome named Oudie. Oudie was devoted to Amachi, the internationally popular Indian saint, so he was familiar with traditional Hindu chants. Whenever Christopher would sing the nickname he’d given his friend - "Oudmon!" - Oudie would reply "Hari Bol!" - which loosely translates as sing the praises of God. And so their revelry together gave birth to the song.
