45. Absence Number 5: Freedom

Updated: Oct 24, 2020

The fifth song on The Presence of That Absence is called Dancing on Water. It is a song of liberation. I think the best way to express what this song is about is to simply let the lyrics speak for themselves.


Dancing On Water

Lightly rising drifting dappled stream,

Immersed in a watery dream.

Without connections spinning,

I’m riding on the surface of a leaf.

Visions, circling, bubbling sounding bright,

With precious premonitions in sight,

Inspired by the spirit’s

burning journey through the night.

Shed the weight. Float to the top.

Feel the pressure start to drop.

Reach the surface. Breathe the air.

Feel the motion everywhere.

I am dancing on water,

Seeking truth in the disorder.

I am dancing.

I am dancing on water

Finding truth in the disorder

Come and see.

I’m a product of my time

With a reason and a rhyme,

Freed from lies and freed from greed,

From the things that I don’t need.

I am dancing on water

Finding truth in the disorder.

Come and see.

Dancing drops of light dotting the sea.

Exposing the dark and the deep.

Satisfied with all that behind me.

Traveling light and fancy free.

New day rising slowly from the depths.

With precious promises kept.

We reach our destinations

With the wind and current’s breath.

Shed the weight. Float to the top.

Feel the pressure start to drop.

Reach the surface. Breathe the air.

Feel the motion everywhere.

I am dancing on water.

seeking truth in the disorder.

I am dancing.

I am dancing on water

Finding truth in the disorder

Come and see.

I’m a product of my time

With a reason and a rhyme,

Freed from lies and freed from greed,

From the things that I don’t need.

I am dancing on water

Finding truth in the disorder.

Come and see.
