Musical Worldview: Hiss Golden Messenger, "When the Wall Comes Down"


“Whatcha gonna do
When the shackles fall?
When the shackles fall?
What you oughta do is melt them down
Melt them down
Turn them into tools and make a garden
On the prison grounds
Turn your chains to roses, child
Tear it down
Tear it down

Step back, Jack, from the darkness”

Musical Worldview: Tom Waits, "Hold On"


Today’s installment of the Musical Worldview series is inspired by this Facebook post from my friend Justin McRoberts, whose new book project we featured here.

You gotta hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you gotta hold on”
