In Music

“Confessor’s Overture II – Hymn for a Heathen Finale 2015”

Available at ubiquitous digital retailers.

Production notes:

1. 8 minutes of piano/vocal sacrilege. Carnage somewhat forgivable by 6th playback, but only w/read-a-long lyrics and rosary.

2. Stare into Leopard’s eyes for a bit to understand why I recommend avoiding members of the Felidae family
with mere relative pitch & who loathe the commercialization of ivory.

3. Flesh wounds only. Apparently, “full” from photographer.

4. Dedicated to: “the musically hearing impaired”. As a charter member, I get special privileges and therefore, am entitled to a free digital pass.

5. To iTunes “editorial” staff: Dear xxxxxx…nevermind, it’s okay. Even my kids are older than you.

6. Consider U87 direct vs vocals re-mic’ed through guitar amps. Ugh.

7. What Chorus? WTF?

8. Recorded May 2015.

9. C7#9 -left paw!

10. C2-F3. One hand, baby! [Only the right one, strangely enough.]

Confessor’s Overture II – Hymn for a Heathen Finale 2015

RITUAL OF MOURNING –NO PRAYING IN MY FAITH
A HEATHEN IS REJOICING –NO GOD? SO THERE’S NO GRACE

I’M SURE THE DAMNING SOUNDS OF RANDOM CHAOS RULE –
I’M REJECTING ALL MYSTERY –I JUST CAN’T SEE – THAT SAVED
I CAN BE.

FORGIVE THE HEATHEN –HE’S ASLEEP NOW (ALL THAT HE WANTS TO DO) – HE FINALLY ASKS: “IS MY SOUL WORTH THE PRICE TO PAY?”

HYMN FOR A HEATHEN?

WELL, ONE DAY HE DISCOVERED WHEN HE LOOKED UPON A GRACE -THE MELODY THAT KEPT HIM FROM DYING IN THIS PLACE (MORE AND MORE)

WHAT IT REALLY CAME TO IS A KNOWLEDGE SOMEONE SHARED

IN THIS FIGHT I GAVE EVERYTHING –NOW I NEVER HOLD ANYTHING BACK.

BUT BY THE TIME I FIGURED IT OUT –DREAMS WERE FAR AWAY HAD TO MOVE ON TO ANOTHER PLACE AND ANOTHER DAY –IT WAS TOO LATE

WHAT IS MY DESTINY NOW?

I’M CONFESSING HERE AND SCREAMING OUT FOR A SIGN TO COME.

CAN’T THE UNIVERSE SEE ME?

..OR SHOW ITSELF TO ME SOMEHOW?” THINK I’M PRAYING FOR THE FIRST TIME.

‘CAUSE MY OLD WAYS ARE DONE –IS MY FUTURE FORGONE?
YES, MY OLD WAYS ARE LONG GONE –CAN MY PURPOSE BE FOUND?

SO THE OLD ME IS NO MORE – WITH THIS HYMN I’M WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.

YES, WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
YES, WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN…

WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
YES, WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.
WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN.

WHOLEHEARTEDLY SWORN…

LORD, I’M NOT THE SAME MAN NOW.
NO ANGEL’S OUTCRY
WOULD YOU, PLEASE?
COULD YOU PLEASE HEAR ME NOW?”

THIS IS MY PRAYER – “FOR A HEATHEN”.
