From the album Peace, Love & Funkiness
"This track was originally inspired the film 'The Matrix' and in particular the scene in the second of the trilogy 'The Matrix Reloaded' - the rave in Zion. The lyrics are actually about Alternative Therapies and the way that they are viewed by traditional medical science."

"Now go do that Hoodoo that you do so well."
Way down deep in the underground
In the place where the weirdo’s and the freaks are found
Souls reconnecting with an ancient sound
No place for non-believers
Glistening in the heat of the midnight sun, ‘cause they’re
Moving to the fever of a native drum
Tuned in synchronistic modulation
These Hoodoo Funk receivers
Soaked in passion, skin on skin
Feral instincts let ‘em in
Feeding on expression of a funkified obsession living in a sweet sensation.
Never call it sin.
Pushing all the limits of convention
Knockin’ on the door to rebellion
Feeling on the floor – give a little more
So hit me Hoodoo Funk.
Gotta let the rhythm get to you
Let the funky vibe pass through you
Open up your mind to Hoodoo (ha ha)
Leaves your body craving more.
Can’t resist the need for getting intimate
This mystical phenomenon is all it took
If you wanna flirt with supernatural just stay put
This Hoodoo Funk will get yer
Nothing ‘bout this energy is too complex
If you get it right it gets like sex
It’s sacred - related
Everybody get naked
There’s no escape - remember
This Hoodoo Voodoo splendour
Just let your mind surrender
Give in to Hoodoo Funk
