Recorded at Soul Graffiti Studios (www.soulgraffiti.info) 2020-2021.
Mixed by Justin Ancheta and Oz Fritz.
Mastered by Oz Fritz for High Velocity.

A song about balance. A time travel journey about relating, referencing & Inspired from Pablo Neruda’s poem:
“Ah, love is a voyage with water and a star, in drowning air and squalls of precipitate flour; love is a war of lights in the lightning flashes, two bodies blasted in a single burst of honey.”
(Deceased in 1973 – Pablo Neruda, the pen name of Chilean poet Neftali Ricardo Reyes Basoalto.)

It talks of the elemental and simple nature of our existence, chemistry and what we come from… and what we return to… also of our separateness and the unity, and the vitality of both to our very existence and ability to meet our complex array of needs.

This song speaks of finding our common ground while celebrating our differences, a mantra and prayer for us all in this time of division and struggle to stay connected, find individuation when we need it most. “Healing the darkness and light from now to the past” allows us access to our hardest darkest moments to bring light (visibility), acceptance, understanding and healing to those parts in a timeless action.

Lyrics

Common Ground
100 BPM Key: G-



Sun in the east sky, Have me fly high
Feel the strength of the, Rays through your eyes

Warm my right side, Help me to have sight
Open wide to-the-water beyond wrong and right

Help me feel “We”, Love is a mystery
of water and a star, Coming right through me

{Chorus/Hook}
Celebrate our differences find our common ground (x4)

fossils form and wind, a-bout my mind
An echo-in-time, a print left behind

ink lines formed to rhyme, To read (in) another-time
Let us please be kind, As history, re-writes

{Chorus/Hook}
Celebrate our differences find our common ground (x4)

{Bridge}
Eyes and teeth like gems in stone
We are precious timeless bones
a flame to breathe
for carbon release
& ashes fly east (eastward)

voices of the past, in these dark lines last
lest a flood should pass, makes the lines bleed fast
Healing to darkness, darkness and light (together)
From now to the past, from now to the past, from now to the past...

{Instrumental}

Moon in the west sky, -let me deep-dive
Feel the strength & the power, Of the left side.

Ven nosotras, Love’s mysterious
Of water and a star, Coming right through us
