about

This song was never meant to be written. I was inspired by the work of some friends who run a charity to write it only 2 weeks before entering the studio to record my album (still in progress). It's about how we rush to stifle compassion when it causes us to face the prospect of personal sacrifice.

With that I'd like to invite you to check out www.eightytwentyvision.org
And let me encourage you to join with people who are choosing not rush from that awkward feeling but to expose it, confront it and harness it to do something a lot harder.....love.

lyrics

Rush

As the moon bright
Shows the sunlight
She conjures up feelings
Awkward and revealing

She talks to the father
But suffers in silence
He hears not the cries of
Her sisters and brother

It's like we're stuck in a knife fight covered in holes
Blood drips like waterfalls drowning hope
If nothing is beating then soon she'll fade
If we're rushing to fight the feeling before we cave

There's a bloodline
That breathes the evident
While she waits by
It bleeds new ignorance

It's like we're stuck in a knife fight covered in holes
Blood drips like waterfalls drowning hope
If nothing is beating then soon she'll fade
If we're rushing to fight the feeling before we cave

Please forgive my sister
For blood has become twisted
In my veins, in my veins
If I did not rush and if I stayed
I would bleed for you and not for me
For you and not for me
