Song Description

This song is about the experience of creating. The Human Experience. The experience of the Infinite Horizon within. Circumscribing the uncircumscribable.

Story Behind the Song

Was talking to an art teacher about her lesson plan and suggested that she have the students make cave paintings like they did in Lascaux, France. She didn't like the idea (though teachers since have done it after I shared this story at gigs) but the words spit, sputter, and blow, came out in the conversation.


Candle light

Fills my night

Cave damp air

I strain my sight

I picture all the world

in my mind's eye

Time to create

the sky

I fill my mouth with earth and soul

Spit, Sputter, Blow...

To create for eyes

that which can't be said

To touch a soul

through a soul that's bled

To share a pain, a joy, a love

To share the breath

from the One above

I fill my mouth with earth and soul,

Spit, Sputter, Blow...

Gaze upon this speckled granite

and tell me what you see

Can you perceive yourself

through experiencing me?

I place my hand

upon the wall

To leave my mark

on this hallowed hall

I fill my mouth with earth and soul

Spit, Sputter, Blow...

I fill my mouth with earth and soul

Spit, Sputter, Blow...
