'Current' ~ (track 13 on Ghosts in the Ethereal Garden album)
Brings all of the madness of the last coupla flows down to a casual memory... fleeting glimpse of sorrow, with a tinge of melancholy & ethereal ambience. Guitar by the hus. It was one of the first times I ever felt comfortable singing in front of him... with very little going on in the track. I felt completely vulnerable. And when you perform improvised & words in the moment... you begin to sometimes dissect the situation or flow a little too much. It is hard to take a step back out of your life together... & just allow the whim & flow to actually take you over & place you outside of yourself.
This song did that for me... finally after so long.

The lyrics... contemplative... & lost memory or death & a lost love. Long ago, I had a friend who's girlfriend met a sad demise as her car crashed on a sharp curve in the road & she passed away.
My thoughts were on the loss felt from that memory... & for many thoughts of past regrets... (like not opening up artistically for so long)... or feeling stagnant in your desires or art endeavors... blocks that stand in your way. Dre was listening to a lot of Lycia during the time of this recording...
One of my favorite mellow collabs with the hus.

lyrics

Current Lyrics:
On the side... On the side of the road...
Hidden here... still here... by the side of the road...
On the side... hidden... by the side of the road... hidden from view...
where I ... lost my love... where I ... lost my world... lost my world...
floating... on a Current...
floating on... a current.
Where... where....
I'm floating... here.....

Dark Muse Oakland, California

Dark Muse came into being as the gutter wail of the howling banshee at the night sky, back in 2000. Prior to that, acoustic offerings were procured from the ding ding of my guitar strings in 1990. Now, I spew forth improvised sounds of Ritual Ambient whilst speaking in tongues and lay surrounded by bones in a macabre dank tomb, all the while reveling in natures lucid dark shadowy decay. ~X~ ... more
