Inspired by the writings of Wendell Berry
Diamond state, a high and lofty name
For a sandbar raised between two bays
Could it be that we feel we are not first rate?
It’s all in a name how you compensate
I have to confess to ya , I’ve toured historic homes of Odessa
I wasn’t too impressed, You don’t think any less of me do ya?
For all the ways we can honor the past, it’s plain
At present we’ve lost a sense of place
Presently lost in space
I have known you for all my life
And I’m just starting to love you
Starting to learn you
Newark of a covenant
College town drowning out to forget
The name given it
A woman clothed in gold sun and pure blue dress
She’s more blessed than any old Annabel from Edgar Allen’s pen
Our love is a mix of eternal things and transience
Now The Brandywine, runs in the back of my mind
All the way from Talleyville, flowing past Monkey Hill
It is a valley filled With liquid rail bringing life all the way
All the way past 16th and Pine
I think it’s pretty fine
Where is a place on Earth that I can can call my home?
Where is a place on Earth that I can call my own?
Where did we get this sense of some other Land
Where some other sun has shone?
But for now I’m gonna make my bed and my pledge to
Delaware, Delaware my home
Delaware is that place on Earth that I can call my home
Delaware is a place on Earth
South of the Canal in a split-level house
At the end of town we watched the sun burn down
The field across Caldwell Corner Rd.
Like the eye of God was taking notice of every curtain close
Upon this place on Earth we call our home
There are so many strong tracks on this album—Bread and Bleeding and Honest Wage immediately grabbed me. The spiritually-engaged lyricism and the intimacy & presence of the vocals just don't let go. Former Ruins
Josh Garrels effortlessly inhabits his own sonic realm and represents the mirth and power of self-forgetfulness. His songs of beauty, substance,and God-ward longing are free of pretense. So very good. Former Ruins
