moth and rust
The idea on this song is loosely based on Matthew 6:19-21. In the song I name a family member – but it could just as easily be about you or me. So many of us have cloaked hearts. We move through life covered with this mortal coil, the body. We treasure so many different things. I do. I mean – there is just so much good stuff to be had. We may move through life largely unaffected by the ample opportunities given us to store up spiritual treasures. What then? What might it be like when we hoard and selfishly squander all that is given us – and suddenly we are before the Lord – seeing as He sees for the first time, with a worm eaten heart, writhing in disbelief, knowing the undeniable truth as witnessed before the multitudes? The song is in the lyric stage – and I hope to get it out in the next days. It may have some of the more unsettling sonic representations I have done to date – but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
