BUSY BUSY

Every now and then a record comes along and it takes over your life. And everything. It’s anthemic, driving, hooky, subtle, fabulous. And long. It’s just a great record…. then after you think it’s finished it kicks in again and goes to places hitherto unimagined. And so it needs to be listened to repeatedly. And when it is… listened to repeatedly …. OMG!
And you play it to your friends, and eventually all your friends are singing along. How great is it when that happens?

Sparks
Life sparks death
Love sparks desire
Low sparks done
Lived sparks die

Lone sparks dual
Loose sparks deal
Lost sparks drive
Light sparks dark

Die means try
The Devil may try
Divine must try

I am My Journey, this is all I am
I am Your journey, this is all you are
I am Our journey, this is all we are
I am the Journey, this is this all there is

This is all I am
This is all you are
This is all we are
This is this all there is

Imagine you’re young (again), only this time there really is a secret door through the garden or the wardrobe and you are Alice. And you find yourself in Wonderland. And when you get there you can hear this magical sound in the distance. And there are people, people of all ages, walking transfixed toward this sound. So you follow them. And the sound gets slowly louder and louder. And you begin to feel it….. and then you know. There actually is a Wonderland. And here you are. Really. In it. You immerse yourself in it and you are trapped. And you never ever want to escape.
In truth you never will.
