Ziti Mix: Knife-Edge Blues


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Ziti did me the honor of soloing over my Knife-edge Blues. His magic fingers give the song a whole new feel. Thanks again Mr. Dagostino. You rock.

Earlier this morning I had posted what I thought was THIS file, but was actually a failed experiment. THIS is the right one, with Ziti only on the lead.

Lyrics
We live our life balanced on a knife-edge
Poised between the shadow and the light,
We’ll be sucked into a fetid swamp, or freeze as cold as ice
If we step out to the left or to the right.

Well the road between is narrow, as was seen so long ago
By a Man they killed for making it so clear,
When the “truth in love” He spoke about was perceived as such a threat
To the power those around Him held so dear.

You can cast away the truth and call it “freedom,”
Build our castles on the waves of stormy seas.
But a “freedom” built on lies is just a slave’s house in disguise.
Only truth embraced is truth that sets you free.

You can play your power games and deconstruct those of your foes
But unless you build on a rock, the fall will be so bad.
Nietzsche shook his fist and claimed, “What doesn’t kill me makes me
stronger.”
But in the end it only drove him mad.

So our leaders make an art of propaganda,
And a science out of messing with our brain,
Never seeing that the end of their agenda
Is a culture that will slowly go insane.
(They’re coming to take me away, ha ha, hee hee, ho ho)

Will you come and walk with me upon this knife-edge,
Walk in freedom as the Children of the Day.
“If we lose our life, we’ll find it,” said the One who blazed our trail,
The One who is the truth, the life, the way.
