Written for and dedicated to my eternally beloved wife.

lyrics

In the darkness
We were all alone
But love was a fortress
And we could call it home
You and I, we gave up the gods
Two spirits all our own

We have suffered the rain much more than forty days and nights
And in the flooded abyss we ascend the mythic heights
‘Cause there is something about just turning out the lights

Run to the forest
From the modern man
He’s building a core myth
No one could understand

I will girth the bastion tides
Pushing earth against sky
No longer just a man
But the dirt in his sifting hand
The dearth and dark in you
I will love it too

We have suffered the rain much more than forty days and nights
And in the flooded abyss we ascend the mythic heights
‘Cause there is something about just turning out the lights
(And if you want to see what we see)
It’s about just turning out the lights

For every god who wants your money, religion,
But not original faith
Love is the only god never on the take
So I say Amen!
So I say Amen!
Amen!

In the darkness
There was a fortress

I will girth the bastion tides
Pushing earth against sky
No longer just a man
But the dirt in his sifting hand
The dearth and dark in you
I will love it too

Si non amor
Non est Deus

We were suffering rain, days and nights
And in the flooded abyss, we ascend mythic heights

So bright, so bright
Turn out the lights
So bright, so bright
Turn out the lights
So bright, so bright
Turn out the lights


In the darkness, all alone
Love is a fortress, and we will call it home
You and I gave up the gods
Spirits all our own

You and I
Turning out the lights

about

Jason Ludwig Austin, Texas

"'Lost In Love' and 'Tanglings' are phenomenal offerings. It's almost unfair that Ludwig — formerly leader of the Rock group Noctaluca — was able to produce two full-lengths as good as these (most people would die for one in a lifetime)."
--Mike Breen, Citybeat Magazine 2011
