Song Description

Starting with Christian Cassan's clear, happy, black-key acoustic guitar strums, this song builds into a full-on 70's funk-pop arrangement complete with 3 drummers, clavinet, a sick funky poppin' bass, Gregg Williams' percussion and an over-syllabification of psychological exploration by the bouncy lead male vocal with remarkable dynamic range. The song builds to an exultant call of "create LOVE living in the world" as all the reflection and questions resolve into the priority of seeking some notion of love in life.

Story Behind the Song

Exploring the psyche with a heavy dose of self-deprecation, gender fluidity and with the hopes of some conclusion, I made a funky, sonically exciting ditty with three drummers, clavinet and a sick funk poppin' bass that pronounces its denouement with the proudly celebratory "create LOVE living in the world..." because, perhaps, as long as we strive for some notion of love, either in our own lives of in contributions to the world, how we get there doesn't too much matter.

Lyrics

She walks a fine line between
ideology and something divine
she says "baby I need your love"
bounced around by the padded walls
of friends and family
and sometimes she forgets
to wake up from the fantasy

She's living in the world
she's looking for some peace of mind
hanging onto the next way to get high
but it's just a matter of time

Wasting time deciphering dreams
when she never even stops to think
where do those dreams come from
she keeps on trying to find salvation
and won't take any liberation
from her own limitation

she's living in the world
she's searching for some peace of mind
and trying to find the way to get high
and now it's just a matter of time

before all her worries turn into a flower
and every cell is made of love
but until that day you know
she's gonna revel in the path of the most resistance

love, love, love

and now the memories crack the picture
of what she once believed
had got to be true love
since someone told her to keep striving for consistency
she's "learning to change"
and refusing to have any fun

she's living in the world
she's searching for some peace of mind
and trying to find the way to stay high
at least she's trying to find

love, love, love, love
love, love, love, love

create love living in the world
create love living in the world
create love living in the world
create love living in the world
