about

I'm giving you a sneak peek at a song called Theatre Of War from an upcoming album called "Glory Hallelujah". This album will be filled with pedal steel guitars, hypnotic bass lines, lyrics about the uneasy feeling inside the pit of our stomach every time we hear the news... and of course... the search for redemption. I've been writing a lot of my nylon string guitar and this is the first song I've ever recorded with it. It sets up a whole different feeling and approach for me.

lyrics

Theatre of War

(c) words and music by Chris Taylor

Verse 1
Believe half of what you see
And none of what you hear
In the theatre of war
Always kiss me good morning
Always strangle me good night
In the theatre of war
Once you open up your heart
You can't close it up again
In the theatre of war
You see the depths of my darkness
But miss the colors of the sky
In the theatre of war

CHORUS:
I am becoming, I'm reshaping, I am turning, all my love
I am converting, transposing, transferring, all my love
I am shifting and converting, undergoing, all my love
I am becoming, I'm reshaping, I am turning, all my love

Verse 2
Look at everyone of us
Created upon a stage of dust
In the theatre of war
Now the coffee on the counter
The finger on the trigger
In the theatre of war
They've got a missile in their pants
And it's doing a little dance
In the theatre of war
I say we order in
As we watch the end begin
In the theatre of war

CHORUS:
I am becoming, I'm reshaping, I am turning, all my love
I am converting, transposing, transferring, all my love
I am shifting and converting, undergoing, all my love
I am becoming, I'm reshaping, I am turning, all my love
