This is a song born of this year that I've been playing quiet a bit. Emvy has joined me on it as well for a couple shows. A good friend of mine fell in love with it a few performances back and it encouraged me to capture a recording to share with you all. The theme speaks to the feeling of being chosen, knowing that this one thing is what you must do. For me that's always been performing and writing, the hardest thing there is to do - mostly bc in a world where time=money, we are taught that art and dreams come second.
Don't be fooled. How can this be a free nation when most people haven't even the chance to see it. I myself aspire to nothing more than fleeing the grip of this fading age and embracing one where time=art. It's not going to be easy, it may get ugly, we may lose it all, we may make everything else in the process. The willingness to let go and be ok is perhaps is the answer. To the avail that I would give my own life. That I may put it on the line to save another, to reach another.
The heavenly fathers gave me this song, this message, and it does indeed burn in my lungs to release, to see its fruition. I can no longer deny myself myself. The road to the desert is not paved in gold, it's lined in dust and sand. It's outer edges do not differ from the rugged, ancient landscape it inhabits, it does not separate it'self. Maybe things fall away, and in that space, a seed comes from the firey sky, ignited and employed to be fertile, to merge with it's source. I've grown this tree that now burns and it's ashes are sweet while the string my eyes. Lay me down sweet in the desert to rest and so that I may become free to do GOD's will and see his beautifully inspired world through the eyes of an innocent hope. That we may all create together equally and freely.
'Bodies are frozen in words left unspoken, so Father let her put her bare feet down, and listen for that sound'
