I’m from nowhere. That’s the way I feel about it now, right at this moment. Music took me and made me and gave
me a purpose and I built my world with it, and now my geography is a musical one, forever. And when I break,
when I think about running as far as I can, I remember that there is nothing that does me like music, and I might
as well be a poor man in a world of my own devising. Hallelujah anyhow.
Rhythm? I learned it over twenty years in the back of rented vans, in attics and back rooms—hard places to get
to, harder places to get out of. And now rhythm is my clock and I live by it. We all do. But it’ll kill you if you’re not
careful. It might kill you even if you are. Hallelujah anyhow.
I see the dark clouds. I was designed to see them. They’re the same clouds of fear and destruction that have
darkened the world since Revelations, just different actors. But this music is for hope. That’s the only thing I want
to say about it. Love is the only way out. I’ve never been afraid of the darkness; it’s just a different kind of light.
And if some days that belief comes harder than others, hallelujah anyhow.
Whatcha gonna do when the wall comes down?
When the wall comes down?
What you ought to do is let it lie—let it lie
And in the gathering darkness vow to never go back
It was built by man and you can tear it down
Tear it down, tear it down
Step back, Jack, from the darkness
I’ve seen darker things than night. Hallelujah anyhow.
