(Y-12) The mighty and powerful Nick Cave

I have always found solace in music.

Right now, I have a special connection with Nick Cave.

It has an incredible depth and complexity to his lyrics.

I am obsessed with his latest release, Ghosteen. 

Particularly one song has latch on to my heart and mind, Bright Horses.

“Oh, oh, oh, well, this world is plain to see
It don’t mean we can’t believe in something, and anyway
My baby’s coming back now on the next train
I can hear the whistle blowing, I can hear the mighty roar
I can hear the horses prancing in the pastures of the Lord
Oh the train is coming, and I’m standing here to see
And it’s bringing my baby right back to me
Well there are some things too hard to explain
But my baby’s coming home now, on the 5:30 train”

-Bright Horses, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Simply beautiful.

(Y-12) The Gospel of Nick Cave

The only thing that I enjoy of my commute from my house to school, and the other way around, is than in that moment I can disconnect and enjoy some amazing music.

Today was one of those days, and who came along the ride, none other than Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

I must confess that my devotion to Nick is a recent thing.

I have listen to some of his song, and I liked them.

I was listening, but not paying attention.

It was after a friend gave me some tickets to see his documentary of the recordings of Skeleton Tree, a harrowing tale of lost and redemption, in which you see Nick Cave deal with the death of his teenage son, and the grieving transforming into a painfully beautiful piece of art.

After this , I was finally paying attention, and fully diving into one of the most compelling artists I have listen to.

This reminded me to go out and do what I love, to give back to the collective energy a bit of my personal art, and be unapologetic about it.

Thank you Mr. Cave, for the music, for the compelling words, and must of all for sharing your genius.

I am off to read and scheme some new plans.
