Out of the Mire

Peace People.

“Out of the Mire”, The instrumental intro piece for the RuAch album was one of the first concrete idea’s we had for the album, When we used to jam this I used to call it the South American song, Martin our drummer naturally came up with a latin style feel on the grooves, & his energy on the drums was exerted with such a high energy to the extent I would always feel a sympathy to his drum kit in how hard he used to hit it whenever we Jam it. Out of the Mire Can symbolise where we were coming from through life at the time, & I only found it appropriate to begin the record with that title, It’s one of those numbers that will create a heavy party vibe, especially when we play it live in concert.

Now we will find a huge gap between when we had the blue print for that piece & when we actually got to record the track for the album.

If you read the previous blog; “River nun” was our first recording for the record, Out of the mire would have been the 2nd however literally the following week after we recorded River nun, I had a call from the venue we were rehearsing in & the management said we should look to find another practice venue, So unfortunately we were in limbo for a few months, We had to find the right spot, The album sleeve tells that story, Eventually a lock in was found, But by the time we got the lock in so many musical idea’s had already piled up for recoding, But we knew we would eventually come to revisit & record “Out of the mire”, & this became one of the last songs we recorded before publishing the album.

Since the recording new musicians have been coming in for the group & have implemented cool new idea’s to it, This one will definitely be one of my favourite tracks to perform live.

River Nun

River Nun, was the first song written for the Album RuAch, This was also the first song we recorded for it, This song was birthed through a jam we had which I originally titled “Liberty”, at this time I was in the process of looking for a Sax player, a sax player Carmine Manfredi came into the Picture, & the second time we played together I hit the record button on the console and Me on electric guitar, Martin on drums, & Carmine on Sax, played and recorded the track live & the foundation of the album was set!, I later on added Bass & after hearing the music I got inspired with the lyrics, recorded the vocals & “River Nun” was born.

My dream one day is to go to the Nun River, & make a live music video for the number, Dreams come true!.

LYRICS:

As we talk we are wasting away,
Wall’s they stand while we sit and wait,
for the rays of the sun to bring us life…

We wonder what was the cause of the wars,
Angels fall but no broken bones,
Tree’s of greed who planted the seed…

What is left but the prophecies,
Heads are rolling down a parted Sea,
Land divide themselves the Rivers flow…

Ships are built and they start to trade,
Guns are made, Now your a slave.
It is Morning as they leave through the River Nun.

The track is 6 min 31 sec, Though in concert the version is likely to be longer ha-ha.

Love & Unity People.

for every silent symbol there is a reason,

there is always a becoming,

song of light

The end is here,

but you do not care?,

your walking in the rain,

you complain about your  living,

you say you had enough,

you think your time is done,

walk with me into light,

You need to walk into the light,

walk with me through the light,

I need to guide you through the light

can you see the light?,

Day after day,

your drifting away from devotion,

think on these things now,

your rushing through the fire,

lead what you say,

you have to know how to express your love,

Mantra

Unto the light x2

Open your eyes,

step into the light,

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 47 “Song of Thought”

listening is learning

whisper whisper,

where’s the wisdom,

can you perceive with your mind,

different colours, different sounds,

some place where people can travel,

through the speed of thought,

a destination where we don’t have to breath to live,

but we live in harmony,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning learning is living in love,

SECOND PART

how long will we continue to live against our essence,

we are built innately to know the truth,

but you pick fear?,

But fear is the opposite of love!,

fear paralyses feeling ,

so listen to the silent one,

for the propaganda is loud,

how long will you hold your breath?,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning learning is living in love,

THIRD PART

tell all the people not run,

tell all the people not to hide,

tell all the people not to fall,

tell all the people to be strong,

tell all the people to rise as one,

rise as one, RISE AS ONE,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning, learning is living for love,

free your dome

there’s no presents in our culture,

there’s no movements in this present time,

if his the face I need to see the brain,

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 44 “Song of life”

life

Opening statement in song

continuing from where I left off a while ago, a lot has happened since, and as I continue to grow in awarenesses I make sure that I take all my experiences with me, learn from them, package them up, send them to you, so that you can be  ahead of time and avoid the negative things in life.

Part 2

sometimes I think about,

the life I have led,

& its not a mystery,

what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,

people will try to kick your head,

while your on the ground,

but when things break through for you,

those same people will try to kiss your ass, I know.

Part 3

The breath of life,

is a gift,

but we don’t stop to think,

our lives fall apart,

little things,

like when you have to miss your bills,

there many destructions in life,

keeping you from yourself,

the law was forgotten,

be fruitful and multiply, you know….

 Mantra

live life, learning and growing

live life, stronger and wiser

live life, yearning to love more

live life, live for another

Part 4

the sun is here,

it never left your heart,

in everyone exists this light,

so shine your light,

living, breathing, giving, loving,

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 43 “Song of nature”

WAY TOWARDS SUCCESSDon’t believe,

you got to know,

what are you flexing?,

truth’s or lies?,

if you do not care?,

life will come and bite you, you know where,

if you want to make it?,

you must be strong,

carrying on,

follow nature!,

Second part

somewhere along the way,

we became slaves,

the world keeps changing,

but the tricks remain the same,

they are making it harder,

to be yourself in this world,

but because I care,

I am strong,

carrying on,

I am nature,

Third part

I cannot begin to imagine,

how much better life would be,

if we did not fall for the trick-nology,

look behind you,

you do not have a dynasty,

but it is not too late to change your destiny,

I cannot say that it is going to be an easy ride from now on,

but the only way to towards success,

is to follow the principles of nature ,

Mantra

use your nature to love another,

come together,

mind to mind,

heart to heart,

culture to culture,

nation to nation,

You are Nature X3
