Inspiration comes....

I haven't written a song since I got here. Finally...


To Lumina who taught Korea how to teach us.

She'll take you in and break you apart
She'll wrap her hands around your heart
You are finally safe here in this deep conviction
You are never allowed into the contradiction
Everything is simple if we just remain blind.

But when her lanterns light the sky on fire
Wrapping streets in fever pitch desire
You can finally believe
You can finally count, you can finally concede
That everything is simple; Everything is by design.

What you get and what you need
may never be reconciled
but who you are and what she sees
are perfectly aligned.
They're perfectly aligned.
Oh, Seoul.

Maybe her soul's jerusalem.
You can't figure it out, but you will learn to bow and bend.
There's a height that you've finally found
in her mountains, her oceans, her body's fertile ground.
Everything's decided. She's finally resigned.

And what you get and what you need
may never be reconciled
but who you are and what she sees
are perfectly aligned.
They're perfectly aligned.

Oh. Seoul.

can you please redirect me to where I can listen to your music. That song I made you keep playing at Sha-Sha...no not that one! Dang, not it is in my head, the one about the ordinary girl...I need a copy of that. In fact, I need your whole album. Aren't you famous yet?
