Music, Lyrics, Vocals, Vocal Melodies - ThePhaige


This tune came about as I was laying some bass down for She Loves Me/Not and I was goofing around with some blues bass lines. The lyrics are about the trial of life and facing the many demons in our pasts, presents and futures that can and do
refine and purify us as in like a crucible and into the best "We'z" we are desirous to be.

I presented the beginnings to Jaime and asked her for a piano piece to go along with this riff I have sent her and the section at the end is that piece that she created and We took it to build the chorus sections with the organ around her vocals. I absolutely love what she did on the vocal in this tune and brought such an exquisite supernal essence to her singing. I just thought she was perfect and as always we had much fun doing this and going back and forth with the parts and pieces. I love doing music with Jaime and we connect so well and has an incredible sense for the sound and the vibe were after. Jaime also has an amazing ear for detail and quality and was a huge help with certain nuances here and there.

Now for Zeph who I have been following on the cloud for a bit now. I have really seen the brilliant nature in his work and his amazing musical mind is unmistakable,fearless, evident and unequivocal. We got to chatting on various things and it came up that we should collab on something and I told him we had one that we were into that I thought would be perfect. I shot the stems over to Zeph within days and he took and replaced the simple drum placeholder we had with his own that he played, and then just as I decided to add a horn section he came at me with this harmonica aspect that was inspired and it fit like Teflon right into the mix.Then he mastered the thing into what your hearing and I could not be more pleased!
I woke up the wrong side of the dah bed
and everything seems totally off
It really is the same side of the bed
I Just been through the inter dimensional cloth

I climb up and look upon the day
and all that is has a chromatic sway
I think its weird but go about da way
I'm realizing that all i am in miry clay

I try to look normal to the all around folk
as I move in and out and and remain under cloak
I work my mind to determine the scope
as every nuance is a screaming In need of hope

This aint no arm chair journey your on a plane with no wings
your flying at the mercy of whom ever owns the thing
They'll take ya to the left they'll take ya to the other
To find your way to the relief you'll have to call on Another

The persons that ya see are not the persons ya knew
They aint not concerned with if your ecstatic ya flew
So clamp on that seat belt and bring your ass to a still
The ride is just beginning and it gots nuthing to do with will

Did I just say it had nothing to do with your will ...well thats
just partially true but the fact is it has everything to do with yo will! .... And we shall have it....

They was poking all at me with their proverbial sticks
and pulled on me all of their silly familiar tricks
I likened it to being an apprentice of a sort
I soon was shown who they is as I am here to report

Oh The Lord Helped me Oh The Lord Helped me

As I was sayin' and now you know about their snare
They was more than the routine adversarial despair
All shapes and sizes they come in and out of their lair
Some can bend their faces some even covered in hair

Oh the Lord Helped me OH the lord Helped me

They was ultimately after all the innards of me
Parts not allied with the flesh or any parts ya can see
When They was "bene factin" eyes...I nearly came away with three. Cept a rather than all this I chose to surrender and live as free
