Inspired by a number of experiences of transcendence, or the self in nature, in protest, and in communion with other humans, that blow open the doors of our separateness and welcome others in to our lives and selves.
This seems to be one of my obsessions throughout this album.
You are standing in the garden, with your eyes up to the sky
as the swallows swoop around you, and I am watching from the side
and I see something else take over, it plucks your body like a string
'til there's no longer any watcher, there is only watching.
And soon we are subsumed to something else -
something greater than our petty selves.
An entire suburb's homes with the doors blown off
to let in neighbours we have lost.
Marching in the demonstration, 40,000 strong,
many colours, many issues, but somehow everyone belongs.
First we're surging through the city, they we're breaking like a wave,
and though we shatter into droplets, still the memory remains of
How we were subsumed to something else,
something greater than out petty selves,
an entire suburb's homes with the doors blown off
to let in neighbours we had lost,
off to let in neighbours we had lost.
And I am in a conversation, it's nothing new but how it shines!
With the opening of our hearts, a true meeting of the minds.
Our guts all busted up from laughing, and I feel no fear,
as the illusion that we're separate disappears …
