The Naming of Things

An original song, acoustic, jamming in my Berliner flat. It was inspired by an amazing chiropractor that I visit who led me into a deep, philosophical conversation about words and language existing only with duality and and and…. I’m wearing a hoodie I found in a dupster. I guess you could say I’m *real* Berliner hahaha…. (And yes, I even worked that into a slam poetry piece.)

(lyrics below)

now i comprehend the naming of things
the kind of suffering that only suffering that only separation can bring

but i will open my mouth
each and every time to sing: amen, amen, amen — so mote it be.

now i comprehend the timing of things
that perception or belief give reason for misunderstanding

and i will close my mouth
each and every time i will think: amen, amen, amen — so mote it be.

now i have no need for words to speak
communication with the divine is the only action that i seek

so i will open my mouth
each and every time in prayer, baby: amen, gimme an amen, amen — so mote it be.
