protect us from what we want
on: November 06, 2019, 18:48:55
we live in troubled times
I checked out some modern day prayers and found them dull for the most part
So I contributed and soon had the music for it. A lot of work. I'm happy enough with it.
 :D
Feedback most welcome!

protect us from what we want




my hands are up for action
these feet for cut and run
no answers for the asking
I've never been so young

you should seek shelter
call up your loved ones
collect what is of value
I've seen the coming storm
it will take some courage
to face what we've become
Oh lord, protect us from what we want
Oh Lord, protect us from what we want

freely you give your heart
to a stranger be kind
and unbroken in the fold
you need not lose your mind

no gain can be claimed
there at the finish line
surely, it's a crying shame
when love is left behind
we'll keep it together
for we are to see the dawn
Oh Lord, protect us from what we want
Oh Lord, protect us from what we want

embrace the naked flame
in this we are reborn
Oh Lord, protect us from what we want

I really like the overall tone that you have built with this production @Rightly  . It has an airy and expansive feel that really works well with the lyrical message.

I let the song take me where it would and suddenly found myself at the end. Listening again now.

Hola @Rightly

Wonderful song and thoughts, I liked a lot the sound and style...
What we want has many ways to be fulfilled ... it is usually something that comes to you like when you go down the street and a pot falls on your head ...
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

I tend to see it as something like the death instinct. I think its unique to human beings. It might be natural, even so on a grander scale its truly a terrible thing.
