about

"I began writing this song late one evening in November. I penned the words before picking up the guitar. I sought to explore to a distinct angst that had been growing for over a year. That evening Words Leave out the Rest became a plea to both myself and my dear friend to summon the courage and commitment to make the sacrifices necessary to follow our sense of right."

-Michael

"This song reminds me that there is nothing necessarily valiant or virtuous about living the way others expect you to live. Too many of us ignore our sense of right and 'let our fear and busyness be our god.'"

-Danny

lyrics

I think that we are getting closer
closer to each other
and further from our goal

And it seems when every we get closer
something tries to stop us and we fail

But I believe
you've got something special
Together we've got something
and I feel the world would benefit from us

And I want to sew our
dreams and time into a quilt
and drape it over us
as we sit by the fire of our hope

And we'll take of all the
beauty that we feel from the world
and lament the fact that
our words leave out the rest

It frightens me
that though we feel a calling
we let our fear and busyness
be our god

But I believe that
what is scaring me
is that this is just iconic
of what is happening in the world

Is this song a warning?
A prophecy?
A wake up call?
Some jumbled words?
A battle cry?
A desperate plea for help?

Maybe the kindling of our hope?

And I want to sew our
dreams and time into a book
and turn its pages
as we sit by the fire of our growth

And we'll sing of all the
beauty that we feel in the world
and lament the fact
that our words leave out the rest
