about

I like to view this song as if I were looking at myself in the mirror, reminding myself that I am never afraid to love. I've never done this, but perhaps I have in the form of music. Life has a way of trying to convince you it's not about love at all, but I hope this song reminds you that it is, and it's a real fight to live your life to love. But it's a winnable fight, so don't give up.

This song sprung out of an experiment with 5/4 time. I'd never heard a song besides the Mission Impossible Theme to employ the time signature and I wanted to see if I could get something a little more inspiring to come out of it. I feel I've succeeded...

lyrics

I'm clothed in silver
With green insides
My hands are empty
But I'll still give you strife
The light is gone as I
Burn hot with hate
But wisdom says open
At death's gates

Nothing came of a blank desire

I'm the start of the love that gives love away
I'm the one who shows the way to change
I'm the start of the love that gives love away
And I'm the one who is not afraid
Never afraid to love

The bottle is empty
It held everything
Still I come to you now
To try and reach you
It takes all I have
To be imageless
But it's what I need
If I'm going to reach you

I don't belong here

I'm the start of the love that gives love away
I'm the one who shows the way to change
I'm the start of the love that gives love away
And I'm the one who is not afraid
Never afraid to love

Breathe in, breathe out
You're not alone
No one can control you
But you've got to do it on your own
It takes all you have
To break the chains
Of modern slavery
To liberate and move

And you won't belong here

You're the start of the love that gives love away
You're the one who shows the way to change
You're the start of the love that gives love away
And You're the one who is not afraid
Never afraid to love

about

apollo and Lacuna Nashville, Tennessee

Definitively progressive with use of odd time signatures and key changes, apollo and Lacuna's music takes blues-rock in a whole different direction, taking on the carnal folk style of Iron & Wine, the subtle whispers of Simon & Garfunkel, the beautiful oddities of Sigur Ros, and the blues infused pop of John Mayer. It's clear that apollo and Lacuna reaches for a more evolved musical experience. ... more
