Public Radio

March.20.2010

Music imbues my soul with truth in ways that discussions or individuals just aren’t able to duplicate. With that said, Mark Mathis‘ impassioned lyrics, multifarious musical styles, and unrestrained vocals on Public Radio engender truths and emotions that can’t be expressed with mere words.

 

You should check it out.

On a slightly different yet analogous note, John Mark McMillan (the original writer of “How He Loves” from his CD The Songs Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down) has also merited a great deal of playing time with me. His poetical lyrics, rock ‘n roll style, and intrepidly ardent voice hooked me from the first time I was shown his music.  Oh, and another sweet bonus: he’ll be in COLLEGE STATION on the 26th of March, 7pm at the Palace Theatre.  I’m convinced it will be a wonderfully fierce show.

Here’s some of those imagery infused lyrics I mentioned – this is from his CD The Medicine.  Here’s the video.

Skeleton Bones

Peel back our ribs again
And stand inside of our chest
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Peel back the veil a time
Let us see you with our naked eyes
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Grave stones roll
to the rhythm of the sound of you
Skeleton bones stand at the sound
Of eternity on
The lips of the found
Yeah so separate those doors
Let the sun of resurrection in

Oh let us
Adore the son of glory
Dressed in love
Open up your gates
Before him
Crown him
Stand him up

We want your blood to flow inside our body and
We want your wind inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah
We want your blood to flow inside our body and
We want your wind inside our lungs
We just want to love you
We just want to love you yeah

Everything that breathes
Everything that breathes
Everything that breathes
