lyrics

every single breath that I take
is a blessing I have shamed
but I know that it's hard to
count every star
so I'll take my book, sit by the shore
and remind myself we're all
merely symbols in an equation
we can never comprehend
maybe if the moon and the sun could
combine to form as one
do you think that it would shed a
brand new light on everyone
and pull us up into the air
into the atmosphere we share;
a reverberating choir -
a single living cell

is this just some callow vision
to conciliate a cause lost in time
I'd rather be floating - feigning
till a lustrous orb expels from the sky

if we were to leave, bid farewell
disappear within ourselves
would we tumble into darkness
or be filled with endless love
holding onto all that is true
all the miracles that fuel
our baffling existence
the hunger behind the kill
and no one is alone, we coincide
we share our struggles and desires
but in spite of this bond we're
still the culprits of our disdain
and as our knowledge ripens with our bones
our hearts contract and grow cold
in the midst of constant war,
famine and mute resolve

so if there's some hallowed rendition
may our siblings sweep and sashay as one
oh, the eternal transition - as she plucks her
wings, not in spite or scorn - thence reborn

about

James Teague Melbourne, Australia

...his music is as complex as the self; one moment whimsical and dreamy, with shades of 60s psychedelia and 70s progressive folk – the next, they’re wrought with mortal gloom and adorned with hints of jazz and howling blues. It’s difficult to describe Teague’s style, but it usually consists of unpredictable melodies that stray, intricate, dynamic arrangements and a soaring, vocal tremolo. ... more
