@monty_lameer
When you posted your Blather, I didn't know that word (non native speaker), so I had to look it up.

And Merriam Webster came up with this explanation:

blathering noun
blath·​er·​ing | \ ˈbla-t͟h(ə-)riŋ  \

Definition of blathering (Entry 1 of 2)
: foolish or nonsensical talk or writing
… liked to conduct five meetings at once, moving back and forth between them, looking for the moment when the blathering was done and the dealing had begun.
— Karen Breslau

… the self-justifying blatherings of politicians …
— Robertson Davies

blathering adjective

Definition of blathering (Entry 2 of 2)
: engaging in or characterized by foolish or nonsensical talk or writing
… the rantings and ravings of blathering scientists and religious literalists …
— Michael Gregory

… the decade's salient features: blathering ignorance, smug hypocrisy, institutionalized fraud and vengeful polarization—all too dangerous to be merely absurd.
— H. Jack Geiger

So, while not taking it literally, I had some direction to - where I assumed - you were taking us. MW put rather much emphasis on the absurdism if you ask me.

If this is not or if this is not exactly making sense where you live? Very well possible since I've stumbled across many different kinds of English.
And I wouldn't mind leaving it like that. Too much explanation is like explaining a joke. Plus, lyrics do not act according to mathematics.

I loved your blather to begin with and still do. And I am still glad that you OK'ed my using them.
Have a nice weekend!
Kind regards, Gus

HI
Interesting listen.
Unlike anything else I've heard in a long time.

I enjoyed it.
I just wish the vocals were a touch louder.
I wouldn't know have to do that without competing with the prominent and lovely guitar which plays throughout.

The voice is intriguing , just difficult for me to follow though.

I am Dutch, my voice is old and way beyond the best before date.
What I am interested in, is making a new song 'hearable'.
And I am very happy with you comment.
Thank you very much for your kind words @Rightly !!!
Kind regards, Gus

This is all very interesting - from the word "blather" itself - which is a word we use over here at least it doesn't sound strange to my ear - to the interpretation of the lyrics to @monty_lameer 's take on that... and then the musical creation which is appealing in its own right and works very well with the lyric... I'm generally very impressed and intrigued with your creations @LePlongeur , this one no different.. including your recording process which is so different to my more tortuous version :) .. Nice work, sir!

K

As your music attracted me to the Kitchen, you have no idea how much your words mean to me @Zedd .
How it’s possible that your very kind post escaped my attention is still a mystery to me.
I’ll try not to let that happen again.

Thank you for your time and very kind words.
I’ll try and meet your mysterious standards again the next time.

And i’ll be on the look out for your next adventure here.
Kind regards, Gus
