about

The chorus is a tribute to Ali Karim without whom my music wouldn’t have happened. The rest is about who I have become, warts and all. Not that I have warts.

lyrics

MAKER

You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul

The burning sun is setting
Above a silent sea
The breeze is slowly building
All around us
A wave of contradiction
To the calm across the ocean
Serene upon the surface
Undercurrent of commotion

You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul

Responsible and reckless
Attentive and dismissive
Focused and then feckless
Conventional and permissive
Feeble and courageous
Faithful then deceiving
Predictably outrageous
Aware but not receiving

You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker
You’ve got to let your maker take your soul
