An Elul Message From SRV

A wall of denial
Is fallin' down
Wo it's fallin' so hard
Down to the ground
Never knew something so strong
Could be washed away by tears
But this wall of denial
Was just built on fear

We've all had our demons
From the garden of white lies
Dressed them amused them
Pullin' wool over our eyes
Go so far as to love them
To keep from letting them go
All the while they we're killin' us
But we couldn't let it show

No matter what the trouble
We carry round inside
We're never safe from the truth
But in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial
Comes tumblin' down
Down to the ground

Simple things in life
Bring the greatest pleasure
A smile, a kiss
A little baby's laughter
It makes no difference
If we run away in fear
The little things in life hold us so near

No matter what the trouble
We carry round inside
Never safe from the truth
But in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial
Comes tumblin' down
Yeah this wall of denial
Must tumble down
Down to the ground



"That which the nations of the world sing songs all contain fear, awe, and love of Hashem, which is found unclothed in them from above to below in all the lower levels."

Thank you for your comment, Shmuel. From the video that I have linked to in the guitar picture it is quite obvious that his music came from a very deep place within himself.
