about

After going through a Native American sweat lodge for the first time, a ritual led by a native elder in a closed hut with around eleven other people where different herbs and water is periodically placed on red hot rocks, I wrote this song which was inspired by philosophical insights coming from that experience and a Miles Davis quote.

lyrics

Cold covered windows
and marked up little letters,
gonna keep you away
can’t come back today
but commas look like roses
and heart shaped little colons,
its all black and grey,
but the colors never fade

Cables seperate,
like nerves in your brain,
crystal light emitting display,
change how we behave.
twisted dirty fingers
nails bitten to the pink
spin knobs and grasp hammers
only know what they think
time ebbs in fluctuations
impercievable to change,
all the while hands are working
keeping up the pace,

Sometimes its a good thing
to wear your feelings
on your sleeve,
and sometimes its a hardship
when others know
what you think.

Glowing scattered stones
arranged carefully on the floor
tell us secrets of our nature
and all the world around,

in structures they are hiding
behind words given sound
like softly written poems
carved into the ground

Cables seperate,
like nerves in your brain,
crystal light emitting display,
change how we behave.

Sometimes its a good thing
to wear your feelings
on your sleeve,
and sometimes its a hardship
when others know
what you think.
