Xavier Rudd – Follow the Sun

Lyrics
Follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is done
Breathe, breathe in the air
Set your intentions
Dream with care
Tomorrow’s a new day for everyone
A brand new moon and brand new sun

So follow, follow the sun
The direction of the birds
The direction of love
Breathe, breathe in the air
Cherish this moment
Cherish this breath
Tomorrow’s a new day day for everyone
A brand new moon, brand new sun

When you feel life coming down on you like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest water’s edge, remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came
So which way is the wind blowing
What does your heart say

So follow, follow the sun
And which way the wind blows
When this day is donet

 

Xavier Rudd – Spirit Bird

Lyrics

Give it time and we wonder why, do what we can laugh and we cry
And we sleep in your dust because we’ve seen this all before
Culture fades with tears and grace, leaving us stunned hollow with shame
We have seen this all, seen this all before
Many tribes of a modern kind doing brand new work same spirit by side
Joining hearts and hands and ancestral twine, ancestral twine
Many tribes of a modern kind doing brand new work same spirit by side
Joining hearts and hands and ancestral twine, ancestral twine

Slowly it fades
Slowly we fade
Slowly we fade
Slowly we fade

Spirit bird he creaks and groans, she knows she has seen this all before
She has seen this all before, she has
Spirit bird he creaks and groans, she knows she has seen this all before
She has seen this all before, she has

Slowly we fade
Slowly it fades
Slowly we fade
Slowly it fades
Slowly we fade

Soldier on, soldier on my good countrymen
Keep fighting for your culture now, keep fighting for your land
I know it’s been thousands of years and I feel your hurt and
And I know it’s wrong and you feel you’ve been chained and broken and burned
And those beautiful old people, those wise old souls
Have been ground down for far too long
By that spineless man, that greedy man, that heartless man
Deceiving man, that government hand taking blood and land
Taking blood and land and still they can
But your dreaming and your warrior spirit lives on and it is so so so
strong
In the earth, in the trees, in the rocks,
In the water, in your blood and in the air we breathe
Soldier on, soldier on my good countrymen
Keep fighting for your children now, keep fighting for your land

Slowly we fade
Slowly it fades
Slowly it fades
Slowly we fade

Give it time and we wonder why, do what we can, laugh and we cry
And we sleep in your dust because we’ve seen this all before

 

 

How Trauma Is Carried Across Generations

“Transgenerational transmissions take on life in our in dreams, in acting out, in “life lessons” given in turns of phrase and taught us by our family. Discovering transmission means coming to know and tell a larger narrative, one from the preceding generation. It requires close listening to the stories of our parents and grandparents, with special attention to the social and historical milieu in which they lived — especially its military, economic and political turmoil.”

-Psychology Today article, here.

Nigel Stanford – Cymatics: Science VS. Music

“Cymatics, from Greek: κῦμα, meaning “wave”, is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena. The term was coined by Hans Jenny (1904-1972), a Swiss follower of the philosophical school known as anthroposophy. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid.[1] Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.”

Lyrics

My life been on a better tip ever since i been selling that pack
I wonder how much better it would get if I cooked up crack

Yesterday my homie pulled up in his brand new Honda Accord
He seen a porche that his credit said he couldn’t afford
What is a dream that you see but you ain’t working towards?
Part of the speech that I have him when I fronted him 4 
Kelows of the blow blow
Cut it down
Cook it up
That will make
Ocho triple oh oh
80 racks bring it back buy his own key I ain’t gotta sell shit
Yea that’s the way the game go
See that’s more dough than he started with
That’s enough dough to buy him a new whip
If he stack up he gon be a new crib
Meanwhile I’m sitting here getting so rich
God dammit that’s the shit
Got dammit this life
I ain’t gotta think twice
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/jay-idk/subtrap/god-said-trap-king-trappy-iii.html] My nigga I’m good
And every time I jugg
I eat steak with the rice
Silver spoon off the kids
A dream wedding for the wife
The only thing that I risk is that shit looking like
Neno
New jack
When the hopped out the van
With the strap Blap Blap
I keep saying Ima stop someday
Girlfriend saying Ima get caught one day
I can stop till I get what I want okay
Only problem is my wants never go away

And the requires more dough
N if I stop then is repos
Foreclose
Fuck that I need a mill man so where the coke and the pills at

Everytime I move an OZ in the or a key
Gotta choppa that’ll lay you down
On gawd
N I can show you if you niggas wan see
My nigga it’s a celebration
On Gawd
Every time we beat the case and get released

The Lumineers – Angela

When you left this town, with your windows down
And the wilderness inside

Let the exits pass, all the tar and glass
‘Til the road and sky align

The strangers in this town,
They raise you up just to cut you down
Oh Angela it’s a long time coming

And your Volvo lights lit up green and white
With the cities on the signs

But you held your course to some distant war
In the corners of your mind

From the second time around
The only love I ever found
Oh Angela it’s a long time coming

Home at last

Were you safe and warm in your coat of arms
With your fingers in a fist

Did you hear the notes, all those static codes
In the radio abyss?

Strangers in this town,
They raise you up just to cut you down
Oh Angela it’s a long time coming
Oh Angela spent your whole life running away

Home at last
Home at last

Vacancy, hotel room, lost in me, lost in you
Angela, on my knees, I belong, I believe

Home at last
Home at last
Home at last
Home at last

Home at last
Mmm

Selena Gomez – Love you Like a Love Song

Lyrics
It’s been said and done
Every beautiful thought’s been already sung
And I guess right now here’s another one
So your melody will play on and on, with the best of ’em
You are beautiful, like a dream come alive, incredible
A centerfold, miracle, lyrical
You saved my life again
And I want you to know baby[Chorus]
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, babyAnd I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

[Verse 2]
Constantly, boy, you played through my mind like a symphony
There’s no way to describe what you do to me
You just do to me, what you do
And it feels like I’ve been rescued
I’ve been set free
I am hypnotized by your destiny
You are magical, lyrical, beautiful
You are…
And I want you to know, baby

[Chorus]
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a (love song, baby) love song, baby
I, I love you like a (love song, baby) love song, baby
I, I love you (I love you, I love you) like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat (like a love song)

[Bridge]
No one compares
You stand alone, to every record I own
Music to my heart that’s what you are
A song that goes on and on

[Chorus]
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

And I keep hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat

I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby
I, I love you like a love song, baby

I love you… like a love song…

Michael Kiwanuka – Home Again

Home again, home again
One day I know I’ll feel home again
Born again, born again
One day I know I’ll feel strong again

I left my head
Many times I’ve been told
All this talk will make you old

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on

Lost again, lost again
One day I know our paths will cross again
Smile again, smile again
One day I hope to make you smile again
I won’t hide

Many times I’ve been told
Speak your mind, just be bold

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes

All the tears will clear
Then I feel no fear
Then I’d feel no way
My paths will remain straight

Home again, home again
One day I know I’ll feel home again
Born again, born again
One day I know I’ll feel strong again

I left my head
Many times I’ve been told
All this talk will make you old

So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on, moving on
So I close my eyes, look behind
Moving on

 

Taylor Swift – Crazier

I’d never gone with the wind
Just let it flow
Let it take me where it wants to go
‘Til you open the door
There’s so much more
I’d never seen it before
I was trying to fly
But I couldn’t find wings
But you came along and you changed everything

[Chorus:]
You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I’m falling and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier

I’ve watched from a distance as you made life your own
Every sky was your own kind of blue
And I wanted to know how that would feel
And you made it so real
You showed me something that I couldn’t see
You opened my eyes
And you made me believe

[Chorus]

Baby you showed me what living is for
I don’t wanna hide anymore
Oh oh

You lift my feet off the ground
You spin me around
You make me crazier, crazier
Feels like I’m fallin’ and I am lost in your eyes
You make me crazier, crazier, crazier
Crazier, crazier.
