-- Us All --
San Francisco - 29 August 2020

Found on:

Here we are, faced with choice
Secrets and walls or open embrace
Like it or not, the human race
Is us all

History is what it is
Scars we inflict on each other donít die
But slowly soak into the DNA
Of us all

Us all

I pray we not fear to love
I pray we be free of judgement and shame
Open the vein, let kindness rain
Oíer us all

Us all

Editors Note:

FOUR NEW SONGS is a video demo, made in January and February of 2121. Recording was done at Yahiro Barn Studio in San Francisco. The expectation is that in the fullness of time there will be an album containing these songs and others yet to be written. If live shows were possible they would be showing up in the repertoire. Since that isnít happening, here they are...

Premiered on YouTube for San Fransisco Lighthouse Church 2 May 2021
