Might be my favorite group of Mike Indest songs! Versatile, yet cohesive. Airy, rocking and head-bopping, yet emotionally, it's as dense as mud. *****(5-star)! Sean Severson (And How)
These songs were a stretch for me after a long writing dry spell. I knew I needed to do something different but was unsure throughout the writing process about where this was heading. Things started to look more certain during the recording process especially with how well these tunes were received by Eddie. Thank you Eddie for the encouragement!
Thanks to Eddie, Monty and Glen for playing along.
Each song is based on a chapter in from the book of Lamentations.
1:2 She weeps bitterly in the night, her tears on her cheek.
None of her lovers comfort her. All her friends lied to her;
they have become her enemies.
2:12 They say to their mothers, “Where are grain and wine?”
while fainting like the wounded in the city streets,
while their lives are draining away at their own mothers’ breasts.
3:7 He walled me in so I couldn't escape; he made my chains heavy.
8 Even though I call out and cry for help, he silences my prayer.
9 He walled in my paths with stonework; he made my routes crooked.
4:! Oh, no!
Gold is tarnished; even the purest gold is changed.
Sacred jewels are scattered on every street corner.
5: 21 Return us, Lord, to yourself. Please let us return! Give us new days, like those long ago—
22 unless you have completely rejected us,
or have become too angry with us.
