about

There is a lie in this world that we are all fed as we grow up. It pours itself out as sweet milk, but it will sour your stomach, your heart, and your mind. Reconciling it for what it is but a first freedom on the road to liberation.

The Truth Of It
Music & Lyrics by Stavros

This world will tell you
You aren't pretty, you're too brown
To get out, shut up, or quietly go down
That believing this thing over that one is not real
They'll claim to have your number
And tell you what you feel

Don't listen to them, Child
Don't head to their calls
These voices that whisper sweetly
Have poisonous claws

They'll dig into your wisdom
And uproot your soul
They'll carve you up for breakfast
And leave you living as the fool

No tender mercies
No forgiveness for them
They've dug their own graves
Just keep walking on
And build your own world
Free from hate
That you've been shown
Just create your own world
Free from lies
That you've been fed
Ah, create your own world
Free your heart

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
