about

An Apple is track 4 from the soon to be released Lowering Entropy. It began as a poem. I explored the idea of appreciation and snapshots of information that last for eternity and found a way to create a metaphor for how to live life at a high level. (Not the technology to get there, sorry :) That eternal moment of surrender to the senses, fully focused and simultaneously opened to experience at the being level- No sense of past or future but fully present and within the perfection of the moment. This knowledge of being 'in the zone' then needed a metaphor to make the poem concise and eloquent as apposed to a lecture on spiritual journeys, enlightenment and developing your consciousness.

I explored 'surrender' in the spiritual/metaphysical sense that, through semantics, I would translate as appreciation/acceptance so as to lose the false connotations of submission etc. Though in the end I kept the traditional word...for value :)
So there I was, I had an apple, a large concept and the need to whack it down on paper- Here it is....

lyrics

An Apple

Slow down inside and take a bite,
And surrender to your sense of delight.
Do it in mind and surrender.

Make each second last and age,
As you yourself begin to taste.
Do it in mind and surrender.

An apple is what you make it…

Self is choice, embrace life:
Momentary.
Milk exponentially.

An apple is what you make it (do it in mind)
And surrender (do it in mind)
