Silence (Waves of Life) After his passing, I felt my friend Neil's spirit visit me to do whatever I could to reach out to others to prevent more unnecessary deaths. I penned this song in the first hour of finding out about his suicide. The hairs on my skin still rise every time I play this song. Can you feel it too? It invites us to feel deeply about those that have left us whilst reminding us about the waves in life & to communicate our feelings... This is dedicated to all who have survived the black dog of depression. If you're feeling down or having thoughts of self-harm, don't be embarrassed or shy or afraid, please contact your country's suicide prevention hotline right now! 30% of sales of this song go to Suicide Prevention Australia. lyrics Silence (Waves of Life) Spoken word intro: We go through the waves of life. We go through the up waves. The good times. We go through the bad times. The down waves. Nothing lasts. The good times don’t last. The bad times don’t last. It’s the cycles of nature. Sometimes, when some of us are in those low waves, those low times, they can forget that the good times are coming back, like my friend Neil, my friend Pat (also good friends Evren, Daryl, Krystle). So I find it really important to say that we must communicate how we’re feeling inside. A problem shared is a problem halved…. Verse 1: Neil, my friend, What made you feel so bad that you had to make it end? Neil, my friend, What made you feel so sad that you couldn’t bend? Pre-chorus: Did you have to break? Did you have to break? Chorus: Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Lean on me, Lean on someone today. Verse 2: Neil, my friend, What message were you trying to send? Neil, my friend, What made you feel so bad? So sad. Pre-chorus: Did you have to break? Did you have to break? Chorus: Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Lean on me, Lean on someone today Pre-chorus: Did you have to break? Did you have to break? Chorus: Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Silence is not the way, Lean on me, Lean on someone today. Today. Today. Neil, my friend, we miss you. Kneel, my friend, before the altar of your mind. credits from Waves of Life, released October 25, 2016 All vocals, acoustic & lapsteel guitars, 5 string bass, cello & violin sampler, electronic foot-drum kit, extra drum programming - Nathan Kaye Written, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Nathan Kaye at Dreamseeds Sound Design Studio.
