Nectar is Red.
I am the rascal and I am the saint
I am the wall on which I throw paint
Whatever you call me that’s what I ain’t
The candle is burning the light is quite faint.
Know your darkness shine your light
Ego and I will ride through the night
If I’m on my own, who will I fight?
Is there a wrong? Or am I the right?
Oh, conflict let me be
Good and bad are both in me
If I accept that I am free
Can I find the harmony?
Lost in your pain, you drive me insane, you drive me insane
I should know now, my heart rules my brain, my heart rules my brain
The rebel he rose from ashes of dread
The voices he heard were inside his head
He had to let go of all that was said
Albert had whispered nectar is red
Will this conflict ever cease?
You have brought me to my knees
From this pain I seek release
Can this stranger find his peace?
Now I see why they burned the books, why they burned the books
The mirror smashed, smashed a thousand looks, smashed a thousand looks.
As a child in school I was angry, I had a fire in my belly, I wanted to change the world. Now, I am no longer angry. One funny thing I do remember from school was being told “don’t get ideas above your station” by a careers official from the education board. I was a bull and that was my red flag.
One of my biggest disappointments in life is this; the willingness of so many people to accept mediocrity. You can call it different names like austerity, second best, sub standard, good enough; they are still versions of the “same bloke with a different hat on” telling you that you do not deserve better. Believe me, you do deserve better. Many people cannot fight the system because they are beaten down so far that they capitulate. Many are blinded by their anger and frustration, I know because I was for a long time.
I write about my struggles in my lyrics and sometimes they get misinterpreted. I am okay with choosing my own battles, I am perfectly okay with the difficult decisions and I fully accept my own reality. I love writing, making music and art. I offer no apologies.
I will not accept mediocrity on any level.
We can choose our future, choose peace and love, it starts with kindness.
we released these in 2018…
we wish you a great 2019, we will be releasing a new song very soon.
the 10 song album…
How can we advance as human beings if we isolate ourselves in extremism? Love is only possible through kindness. Peace is possible.
Happy Black Friday, suckers….
