It’s coming on waking up to myself getting used to the feeling of everyone else Now we have wings to fly Over the horizon It’s a sudden feeling change in perspective a wall of reflective surfaces going nowhere I take myself back from that kind of lack Now we can tell a different story Never be lost never caught, never lost in someone else’s story Over the horizon Over the horizon Over the horizon It’s coming on waking up to myself © Teri Hitt All Rights Reserved.

Released from the keeper on his negative throne It was never what your thoughts were thinking cause they weren’t your own. You gotta free yourself gotta be yourself you gotta roll off the shackles and go ahead and shine roll off the shackles and shine Do you ever dream of running away from the wars and the bars and the battles, the endless parade? In your darkest moment you find you aren’t afraid You just changed and nothings gonna be the same You’ve got a reason to believe You’ve got a reason to believe You’ve got a reason to be free © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

When you find out you’re mistaken when the road your on takes a turn Just remember every road eventually must bend In the subtle underpinnings of the life you thought you were leading there’s a core of believing you must maintain through the change There’s a crystal shinning vision in the center if you’re willing in the center In dreams you’ve had whisperings pieces of puzzle falling down on the table before you but you’re missing one more sound The truth in perpetual motion revealing as it goes what to give attention and what you best ignore There’s a crystal shinning vision in the center if you’re willing in the center There’s a crystal shinning vision in the center if you’re willing in the center you can get there you can get there you can get there you can get there In The Center © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

Morning sitting quietly bring it on home bring it on home over and over again till you make it home call it your own The Song of the Satellite streaming overhead The Satellite streaming overhead The Satellite In the 2nd dream of the first heaven book flew open to a page and mystery surrounded everything In the early days of the desert you were standing by a mirage of an oasis you created to keep you warm The Song of the Satellite streaming overhead The Satellite streaming overhead The Satellite https://gracegravity.com/song-of-the-satellite/

Whatcha gonna do with your happy ending? Whatcha gonna do with your rock and roll? Whatcha gonna do when your phone’s not working? Glitch up all your songs Whatcha gonna do when time’s not ruling? Whatcha gonna do when the power down? Whatcha gonna do when you find sound matters? Whatcha gonna do when your lost is found? You got signs in the sky, signs in your eyes Signs in the sky coming down like rain Whatcha gonna do with a happy ending? Whatcha gonna do with sunny skies? Whatcha gonna do when the sad parts leaving? Whatcha gonna do when the power on? Whatcha gonna do when your vision’s clearing? Whatcha gonna do read between the lines? Whatcha gonna do when wisdoms reining? Whatcha gonna do when the day is fine? You got signs in the sky Signs in your eyes Signs in the sky Coming down like rain Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna? © Teri Hitt, June Kato, Paula Montondo — All Rights Reserved.

have wondered down this long long road for a long time how bout you? I just remembered why I wanted the long long road It’s in the feeling an open door subtle understatement to say direction home Bought a ticket for sights unknown, we were very young to choose which road it’s such a subtle rainbow that we all hold It’s in the feeling an open door subtle understatement direction home It’s time rule it give it all and fly move along its the time of day its the time of day to take the long road © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

In the city people running fast In the city hoping time will last Nothing to break that fall at all Four walls and a diamond baby is that all you think love’s for? Four walls and a diamond is that all you think loves for? Nothing to break that fall at all Back before Eden before the days of Jude the water was so fine …. Caught in a world of material things getting more just a means to an end your glasses are foggy but your soul still attends you soul still attends Still got a long way to go © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

Calling on the Santa Anas blow these chemtrails out to sea bring back blue skies and rainbows let the Earth do her beautiful thing. I don’t want to live in some rabbit hole spinning in circles in a row those of us living in the rainbow got to shine the light so something new can grow got to know what we know so something new can grow Calling on those who came before us do what you can see what you see bring back blue skies and rainbows let the Earth do her beautiful thing. In the time between we remember everything you still hold your own key set yourself free, set yourself free something new can grow something new can grow something new can grow © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

Real Clouds 02:43
Here come the cloud people skipping through the day Here come the cloud people clearing up the haze They don’t have a story to tell Just here in their glory to help us figure it out so we can Solve these problems Solve these problems When you see the cloud people You’re in holy days Good to see the cloud people clearing up the haze They don’t have a story to tell Just here in their glory to help us figure it out so we can Solve these problems Solve these problems With the Real Clouds up above the Real Clouds working together Real Clouds Real Clouds © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

Walking out this morning looking for my road wondering what the world has got to show me I don’t know where I’m going I don’t know where I’ve been Got to find out what it is I’m feeling what it is I’m needing that drives me to go Looking at the flowers telling me their stories I’m remembering things I forgot long ago Th Sunny Side of the road sunny side of the road Looking for the road I belong on finding the place in my soul trusting the voice I hear that guides me down the sunny side of the road Another day, another chance to be brave give a little love and see how it grows I know I can’t know all the answers but i can learn to trust myself and find my place to grow sunny side of the road sunny side sunny side sunny side © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

You do a drug called television Just thought I’d let you know Your best friends not your tv your ipad or your phone It may try to break you down with its frequency If you think it guides you you really are asleep It’s the wrong road wrong time old paradigm really not a shame slipping down the drain we’re sorting it out Sun comes up again If we divide who wins? Side step that We’re not gonna fall for the freak show paranoid We keep it together oh ooo hooo oh ooo hooo We keep it together oh ooo hooo oh ooo hooo We keep it together © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

Mother Earth 02:37
Oh mother earth Oh eternal sky in this revolving door of time and mind seems we’re set apart But I can hear the the whispers fleeting glimpses of the precipice we’re on Standing here I’m in the world but I’m also far away I can see the future coming coming at me Oh Mother Earth Living in this sea of consciousness no wonder we awake to the presence sleeping in these bodies like a wave, like a big wave crashing to the ground We are awake We are awake Oh Mother Earth Mother Earth © Teri Hitt — All Rights Reserved.

about

Feelings, words and music on the space/ time we are going through. Breadcrumbs on the path of awakening.
Recorded the way music used to be made, Analog.
My heart to yours ~

RECORDED, MIXED, AND MASTERED ANALOG
To me there's more music in the music because it was recorded analog.

ANALOG RECORDING MEANS RECORDED TO TAPE
The first time I heard my voice recorded and played back on our Tascam 16 track tape machine I got tears in my eyes. I had always felt that digital recordings were missing something but I wasn’t sure what. When I heard the tape I knew recording to tape was some of the best advice I ever got.

We found a time machine and over the course of a year year created a small analog recording studio in our apartment. The next several years we carefully recorded these beautiful songs to analog tape. The final lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bass, and drums were recorded live on a 1" 16 track tape machine using tube and solid state gear. Because we recorded live we were able to really connect as we played and sure enough magic happened. We later added overdubs of keyboard, horns, percussion, and background vocals. We mixed in Northern California at Laughing Tiger Studio. Mastering legend Bernie Grundman, completed the process by adding his mystical final touches.

ABOUT ANALOG RECORDING
Analog recording allows the messages in the songs to be more completely and clearly delivered. In my opinion analog recording reflects natural harmonic overtones and a warm tonal resonance you just can’t get in digital recording. This resonance is missing in digital recordings because the recording process is to take samples and string them together as opposed to recording the whole sound wave.

Recorded in A=432hz. Made with Love!
