What I'm listening to right now…

Being a musician and someone who is extremely passionate about music, I have no doubt that I’ll be regularly posting songs up here that are either special to me, have some relevance to my current state of mind or that I just think rock.

Some of you may not care and can therefore stop reading at this point. 🙂
I heard this song shortly after 9/11.  I thought it very fitting for that time where there was so much chaos going on in our country and inciting much fervor across the world.

The lyrics are especially poignant. I hope you enjoy.

we’d gather around all in a room fasten our belts engage in dialogue
we’d all slow down rest without guilt not lie without fear disagree sans judgement

we would stay and respond and expand and include and allow and forgive and
enjoy and evolve and discern and inquire and accept and admit and divulge and
open and reach out and speak up

This is utopia this is my utopia
This is my ideal my end in sight
Utopia this is my utopia
This is my nirvana
My ultimate

we’d open our arms we’d all jump in we’d all coast down into safety nets

we would share and listen and support and welcome be propelled by passion not
invest in outcomes we would breathe and be charmed and amused by difference
be gentle and make room for every emotion

we’d provide forums we’d all speak out we’d all be heard we’d all feel seen

we’d rise post-obstacle more defined more grateful we would heal be humbled
and be unstoppable we’d hold close and let go and know when to do which we’d
release and disarm and stand up and feel safe

this is utopia this is my utopia
this is my ideal my end in sight
utopia this is my utopia
this is my nirvana
my ultimate
