about

This is a song written in response to my ever growing awareness of the brokenness of our country and our planet but the truth that so beautifully permeates the noise.

lyrics

Sometimes I feel like I'm from a different planet, should've been born galaxies away. No comfort in my foresight before kingdom come, with the space suit they gave me still on when I landed alone. I'm a casualty of this cultural war. We've lauded and baptized societal norms. Doubled up your standards to demonize the difference; tearing down the other to gain some common ground, what have we found? If the truth can destroy it, it should wipe it clean, because no ignorance is a true bliss, if we’d see it as it’s meant to be. Life, that is. Life, that is. I’ve taken the poisoned wine somewhere along my timeline that draws itself o'er chaos and back. Oh, and when you speak of the way things've always been, is that normalcy something worthwhile to be sought and conceived? I am not your marionette; ah, it is there and I'm not going to pretend. Is it not a tragedy to think you're the only kind? Nail it to the front door like your opinion is your god or mine. If the truth can destroy it, it should wipe it clean. Because no ignorance is a true bliss if we'd see it as it's meant to be. If the truth can destroy it, it should wipe it clean. Because no ignorance is a true bliss if we'd see it as it's meant to be. Oh, life, that is. Life, that is.
