about

Whenever I’m feeling hopelessness and panic, I will often watch a Miyazaki film and reflect on the gentle beauty of the animation as a way to feel a sense of peace. A scene from the film Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind depicts an underground sanctuary beneath the toxic jungle above, and the imagery of this scene is so beautiful that I often skip to just this section of the film. I wanted to write a song that represented to me the feelings I got when I watched this scene, or when I was exposed to beauty that helped to calm my spirit when I felt anxious- a feeling I was experiencing regularly in light of the coronavirus

lyrics

Sands of countless beacons
Tonight you roam
Angel essence, fallen heaven
Take you home

I wonder could I drink you up?
Illuminate my body and my bones?
A restoration, slip away and
Leave me with your glow


Pools of ancient water
reflect the face
A toxic jungle from which we stumble
Onto this holy place

Wandering through endless noise
It's true the eyes are windows to the heart
But in the silence, where beauty rises
We create our path
