The U.S. election has those closest to me baffled and even, well, afraid. A lack of morals along with an abundance of greed and power have taken the spotlight.

One of the only ways I can transform negativity into peace is by writing music. This piece has been particularly ambitious for me both musically and vocally.

While this is not an instrumental, it does seem to represent part of the Soundtrack of our lives at the moment.

The piano solo in this kicked my butt!!!

Peace and hope for us all.

Blasphemy

This wrestling for the White House
Has much of us in dismay
They’re in the ring ’til a knockout
Then we’re all stuck either way

Might be dumb but we’re not blind
Half of us see at least half of the lies

I’ve asked around about the White House
Seems either side feels the same
No real choice, still we turnout
To pick the player we least hate

They’ve thrown the game, it’s no surprise
Our camel is lodged inside the eye

Shock and awe
Leaders above the law
We’re all in shock and awe
And our hope is nearly gone

Say what they need not what you mean
It’s all so slippery
Fear as a fuel, anger the tool
Writing this history
A finger to blame, need someone to pay
So we can build a wall
Dividing liberty for all

In two
Us and you
Left, right
Black, white
Christian, Muslim
Race and custom
Science, religion
Have we forgotten
We each have children (they each have children)
We are God’s children (God loves his children)

Perhaps we are all dumb and blind with

Shock and awe
Leaders above the law
We’re all in shock and awe
And our hope is nearly gone

Caught in the lies
A world in demise
Is in for a big surprise
We sit paralyzed
Warm currents and tides
Just two of the signs
Have we gone insane
The ring’s just a game
We fall in the golden hall
To the destruction of us all

The ocean is dying
Forests are falling
Species expiring
But they’re still denying
Rivers are drying
Sea levels are rising
With temperatures climbing
When will you start trying to change

Perhaps we are all dumb and blind from

Shock and awe
Leaders above the law
We’re all in shock and awe
The people petite bourgeois
We’re lost in shock and awe
And our hope is nearly gone

But hope is alive in me
Hope is alive you’ll see
Hope is alive in me
Hope is alive you’ll see

There’s always hope
Just a fool’s hope
But there’s always hope
Hold onto hope
Hold onto hope
Hold onto hope
Hold onto hope
