about

Black Harvest is my first ever song, and written while working with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in Antarctica. Spending many long days at sea gave me the time to try writing music.

My friend Ryan recorded the guitar and instrument arrangements and produced the track. So far it's my only song to have been produced!

Enjoy!

lyrics

From Black Harvest

These songs cry freedom
In a black harvest

Ins’t that so
I really wanna go

There once was a time when I delighted

In the flesh
In the wing
In the sizzle of the skin
In gristle
from the groan

In the marrow from the bone of an innocent soul

These songs cry freedom
In a black harvest
Ins’t that so
I really wanna go

There once was a time when I delighted
In the flesh
In the wing
In the sizzle of the skin
In gristle
from the groan
In the marrow from the bone of an innocent soul

And sullied my bowl ….
Its the way we all go …

In the flesh
In the sin
In polish of a skin
In the gun
In the knife
Look the fish in the eyes and I blow

Away from my road
It’s the way we all go …


These eyes seek gladness
In a Black Harvest
Isn’t that so ?
I really wanna go

There once was a time when I could find it
In the money
In the piss
In the ignorant bliss
In the bling
Being king
Having power and a sting of my own

Left a hole in my soul
It’s the way we all go

For my Apple
Coltan
Blood of African man
Get the oil
Cut a tree
For the mansion and the key to my Roles

I burn a lotta souls
It’s the way we all go….


Hearts find redemption
In a Black Harvest
Isn’t that so ?
I really wanna go

And now comes a time when I can feel it
In the sun
In the sense
Beyond the white picket fence
In the Zen
In a friend
Beyond the rat race road I’m flying home

I’m washing (watching?) my soul
It’s the way we all go

In the rhythm
In the dance
In a meditation trance
Walk a forest
Swim a sea
Let the river and the world find me

A childlike soul
It’s the way we all go

In the wind
In the wild
Like a river like a child
On a mission
On a trend
To a temple and a long lost friend

Its the way we gotta go
Is't that so? …
