random [shaped] notes

I saw a pretty amazing rock show last night. The bands were headliner Anathallo and opening acts Page France and Denison Witmer. All three acts were worth the ticket price by themselves. Music connects on such a deep level with nearly everyone I know, and last night’s show edified me in ways I didn’t expect.

The audience heard the following powerful lyrics from Page France last night. The song is called “Jesus” and comes from the “Hello Dear Wind” album (I would recommend listening to the first two songs at http://www.purevolume.com/pagefrance/ — “Chariot” is amazing as well — or downloading the songs for a buck from iTunes):

i will sing a song to you
and you will shake the ground for me
and the birds and bees and old fruit trees
will spit out songs like gushing streams
and jesus will come through the ground so dirty
with worms in his hair and a hand so sturdy
to call us his magic we call him worthy
jesus came up through the ground so dirty
i will sing a song for to you
and you will stomp your feet for me
and the bears and bees and banana trees
will play kazoos and tambourines
and jesus will dance while we drink his wine
with soldiers and thieves and a sword in his side
and we will be joy and we will be right
jesus will dance while we drink his wine
jesus will come through the ground so dirty
with worms in his hair and a hand so sturdy
to call us his magic we call him worthy
jesus came up through the ground so dirty
jesus came up through the ground so dirty
jesus came up through the ground so dirty
jesus came up through the ground so dirty
