SONGWRITING CONFIDENTIAL 27.

WE INVENT NAMES FOR THE THINGS WE DO AND THEN SAY THATS WHO WE ARE !!! IN MY ALONE MOMENTS WHEN I’M NOT IDENTIFYING WITH “ WHAT I DO“ IN THOSE MOMENTS I DON’T HAVE THE FAINTEST CLUE “ WHO I ARE “; AND I’LL BET DIAMONDS TO ROAD APPLES YOU DON’T EITHER, NO ONE DOES AND NO ONE EVER WILL; THUS THE MYSTERY !!! SO IN THE INTERIM OF NOT KNOWING “ WHO I ARE “, IT SEEMS WE ARE GIVEN A MISSION, A MISSION GRANTED TO US BY WHO OR WHATEVER IT WAS THAT CREATED SOMETHING AS SILLY AS HUMAN BEINGS OF WHICH THEIR ARE MANY NAMES AND ENDLESS BELIEFS…I DON’T PRETEND TO KNOW SHIT, ALL I KNOW IS WHEN I WAS BORN I CAME INTO THE WORLD SINGING; I HAD NO CHOICE IN THE MATTER ABOUT WRITING SONGS, I’VE PROBABLY BEEN DOING SOMETHING OF THIS NATURE FOR ETERNITY, AND WHATEVER YOUR PASSION IS, MORE THEN LIKELY YOU’VE PROBABLY BEEN DOING IT FOR ETERNITY ALSO. WHATS BEAUTIFUL ABOUT IT IS THAT IT ONLY GETS MORE BEAUTIFUL AND MORE FUN. THIS GETS US BACK TO “ WHO I ARE “, SO, “WHO ARE I” ?? , I’LL TELL YOU “WHO I ARE”. I’M A DUDE SITTING AROUND WRITING AND SINGING SONGS WHILE I’M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT “ WHO I ARE “, THATS ALL I KNOW, OR ALL ANYBODY KNOWS FOR THAT MATTER !!! WE CAN SIT AROUND AND PONDER OUR ASSES OFF BUT THATS ALL WE’LL EVER DO BECAUSE IN THIS LIFE THE ANSWER IS UNATTAINABLE WHICH IS THE BEAUTY OF IT.
