about

Some of the lyrics to this song were inspired by the imagery in a terrible science fiction movie called The Core - a film so incredibly bad I've watched it about seven times. Other lyrics were inspired by lines in Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, from a passage that was a favorite of my father's.

For Kumar. For love. For remembering that love is stronger, more real, more immense than the separation of any time or distance. For remembering to love as fiercely, fully, freely as we can when love shows up at the door, because though distance and separation are just a flash and a shadow compared to love, still, they're hard.

lyrics

keep digging
keep digging
through rock and earth and stone
keep digging
keep digging
through ancestral bone
til one day
you break through
to crystalline cavern inside
where we'll find
flowers and diamonds
shine colored stars
in velvet skies
tears fall down
from laughing eyes

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion

i'm a white tiger flying through the snow
cool breeze under your noonday sun
clap of thunder to your lightning
coal in your engine
baby burn through me

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion
coming of spring
a changing sea
won't stop coming
keep exploding
this love
into me

you never know when it may come again

find me under your feet
in the green grass growing
sitting on your mountainside
watching firefall from the sky

maybe in a moment
we'll see what the stars meant
when they sang
open wide
we need sky
through which to shine
through twinkling arms
from eye 2 eye
through unfolding
wormhole to infinity

ocean can't divide
we are one
only time can separate
and it's an illusion
coming of spring
a changing sea
won't stop coming
keep exploding
this love
into me

you never know when it may come again
be sure to kiss its hand
bathed in milk and honey

about

Artemis San Francisco

Spectral keyboard washes and sinuous dance beats set up a feeling of warm alienation while Artemis’s voice heats things further. Over the thump and shimmer, she croons with detached fervor, the music dissolving in a storm of pixie-dust disco until a rude riot of effects snaps the tether and she vanishes. ... more
