Two years ago I wrote a song. Its a song that speaks to the perpetual violence the world creates. It speaks to the humanity in us all. And it speaks to the black hole that is violence. I felt it appropriate to share the lyrics.
“Its not that I seem to be out of my mind. Its the apathy that I see deep in your eyes. Put your guns away child. Youre never the same as the darkness that creeps in around you to play.
Theres a voice standing tall crying back to the way of our fathers who’s fires were burning the same as the lonliest evening brings chill and the rain. Where the lovers lost all of their bloody remains.
You sing, ‘I come apart. I come apart. I come apart when you fade into the dark…’
You’d love to find peace, and youd love to find more. But the end needs the means like a wind needs a storm. There were moments when life set sail with a course over all of the others that founded the shores. They sing…
I come apart. I come apart. I come apart when you fade into the dark…”
