The WaterboysThis is the Sea (1985)

All this fretting about what to write when one can just let it flow like….yes, the sea. See what I did there? But seriously folks, I;m not going to pretend I know what Mike Scott‘s lyrics, both elusive and plain; poetic even are about.

But right now it’s the sound of throwing off the shackles of past behaviour, history, the weight of the mind; self analysis making way for reflection and ultimately surrender. The shedding of the mortal skin and individual, painful desires and passing through to a world of spiritual, elemental and beyond understanding.

The song surges and crashes like a wave constantly in motion and Scott’s voice is righteous passion, wonder and humility; a sage wanderer in awe of life.

Behold the sea.
