The Water EP

by Luke Thompson

water 05:20
I am the stranger in the shadows I am the sleeper at the wheel Am I the choice & the anonymous voice That says none of it's real I've heard the footsteps of the hungry I've heard the breathing of relief I heard the scream of a mother in a dream But that could have been me    I walked out to the grieving ocean I lay down by the thirsty sea I found a man there dying without water He looked just like me I have come from the walls of worry I fled the wounded streets of war I walked a thousand miles in the wrong direction But what was it for? I am a chorus of the guilty I am the water on the ground I am collectively the face of the lost Who want to be found    We drink to love and deception We drink to charity and greed We drink to numb the very thing we've become when its water we need w a t e r

Luke Thompson New Zealand

In The Trials and Tribulations of Adam and His Seed, Thompson turns his attention to everything from biblical themes to politics and privilege and the bittersweet nostalgia of fairy tales in a world of modern anxiety. It may have taken five years to carve out the work within, but Thompson’s expansive, philosophical album has been set free right on time. ... more
