grey sky undertow

2000 miles later,
just beyond the dream state transformed,
on a wave-smashed boardwalk, we sat in silence,
and waved goodbye to our grey sky undertow.

after all the love had come and gone,
you and I kept holding on
‘til there was no one left to blame.
and after all the love had come and gone,
there was no use holding on
to what we became

all those miles later.

2000 miles later
you and i found nothing but unknowns.
In a twilight aurora, underneath Orion’s sword,
we waved goodbye to our grey sky undertow.

after all the love had come and gone,
you and I kept holding on
‘til there was no one left to blame.
and after all the love had come and gone,
there was no use holding on
to what we became

all those miles later.


Words Of Release Ride The Planet

My track Words Of Release soundtracks an extreme ride down Uganda’s White Nile River. Awesome that a song about peace makes such sense against raging waters. Wonderful cinematography. My track starts approximately 01:50.

Uganda’s politics around self-expression and gender are not aligned with mine (understatement), but you rarely have control over where your music is placed (just ask Chrissy Hynde about Rush Limbaugh’s daily use of My City Was Gone). That said, I will view this placement as an unintentional subversion, and hope it provides a subconscious hint of an enlightened world.

**extra fun: on youtube, the 1st comment (in russian) asks “at around 1:55, what’s that song?” cheap thrills all around. :^D
