It was another day in the kitchen cooking up a fine dinner. I think we left the studio around midnight. Was so much fun tracking Whoo Hoo “So Beautiful”. What was even more fun was watching Tamba track the percussion. Stay locked for more clips of the process. Gospel of Romance EP due 2019.

Excuse me as I wipe my mouth, I just eat ah food. My sweet “blue” food notes and curried “grays” have satisfied my hunger…till…my appetite growls again. Until I allow the acid to burn the lining called my conscience.
Then I eat a food again. This time a little heavier, left-hand dumplings with some “greens” and some sliced “reds” on the side please, and to wash it down how about a tall beastly cold “50”.
But how long before the acid burns all my conscience away, then, the ulcers one by one appear. Slowly, I cringe at first, bending over in pain. Maybe it was the dumplings, maybe the curried “grays” or the sweet “blues”. I’m… not cer..tain but it pains.
I’ve lost it my birthright, my good name, my character, my conscience eaten away by the food. Food that should have strengthen me, developed my muscles, food has become my poison.
Must I eat ah food? oh yes! but not all food must be eaten.
Sticking under my shoe, making me so uneasy.
Getting in my sock, just have to get it out.
Pebbles in my pigeon peas…crunch!!!
Stumping my toe…ouch!!!
One more pebble causes the well to overflow
One more pebble to block that leaking hole.
You can avoid a boulder it’s easy to spot
Pebbles… steups…they’re little spots, that
Get in everything, gosh they’re everywhere
Some smooth, some sharp, some round and kinda square.
Smaller than my imagination, yet big enough to stop my engine abrupt!
Smaller than my foot but, if I step too hard then I howl with pain and it’s now bigger than I suspected.
Small you think you are,
Small is good. Small can see the big picture more than any boulder would…could…admit.
Small beginnings don’t frown on them, small things observe them close.
Pebbles can do boulder feats if we just look.
