7/25 ~ Yeah, yeah .. I’m gliding. Welcome to the first one .. first one what? Original album title before “Kizza Me Now” was written. It’s nice to know we can count on each other. Some of life’s lessons need to be handled alone. I imagine poets know this. I’m just thinking about my output since I’ve settled in my new home. In May of 2018 I released my fourth full-length release “Satyr’s Day Parade” aka the “parade” album. At least an eight year span between that and the previous “Beth” release. My god, the smoke hasn't cleared and I’m gearing up for a March 2019 release. Whether or not this song is chosen remains to be seen. But it will get finished. A video shoot this summer on the berm behind my home. There’s an energy there. A certain energy. And I’ll have an audience. A contingency of Prairie Dogs, if you will.
There's a feeling that goes with this song. I've yet to determine the anxiety. But I'm hoping we'll be gliding. There's a lot at stake for all of us. Examine the righteous .. see if they glide nicely. Hugs across the night sky - let’s be gliding .. xoR


Yay yeah - I'm gliding ..

The universe is a big one .. I'm feeling right at home
Chatting up a storm with every ghost I've ever known ..
They drag those chains behind me
But they can't slow me down
'Cause I am gliding .. yay yeah .. yes I'm gliding ..
(Look at us)

Yay yeah .. I'm gliding ..

Welcome to the big one - you're in it on your own
No sugar coating here .. you'll have to stand alone
I know you can make it through - oh you were made for this
You'll soon be gliding ..
Yay yeah - yeah you're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern .. burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Ooh - you're gliding ..
Ooh - oh yeah you're gliding ..
You're gliding - you - are - gliding ..

Welcome to the righteous age - don't walk through that door
We have to find ourselves before they chain us to the floor
Once we hit the open road .. no need to speed at all
'Cause we'll be gliding -
Yay yeah .. oh yeah we're gliding

Never wanted to learn to hurt
Sent the sadness away
Lantern, lantern burn me bright
Like a comet 'cross the night sky

Look at us - (looking good) - Oh we're gliding
Look at us .. we are gliding

We're gliding - we - are - gliding
Oh we're gliding - yes we're gliding
Oh we're .. gliding ..

Yay yeah

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
