about

After all this my parents were worried. And they wrote a letter to me, saying, “Get up, wake from your sleep! Remember that you are the son of a king! See who is your master now! Remember the pearl for which you went to Egypt!”—HYMN OF THE PEARL, IX

lyrics

Somewhere in the world, the milk has soured, and a minor key has infected the song. Somewhere in the world... I must confess, or I will have no rest, pacing these hallways, alone. There is a cave in Jericho where I will lay my bones if he does not come home. Fly to the desert sand, fly to the desolate sea, fly to the wandering hand, take this message for me: “I hope you can forgive what I didn’t show, what I didn’t know. Always underfoot, I guessed you always would be. But what did I know? What did I know? I pray you walk with angels wherever you go. Tell me what you’re missing. What didn’t I say? I give you my blessing. Oh, I know it’s a little bit late. I wish I could tell you how proud I am of you. I give you my blessing…”
