11. You Are The Beauty

Ghosts Upon The Earth
by Gungor



 

Love, love, love of mine
You have caused the sun to shine on us
Music fills our ears
Flavors kiss our lips with love divine

You are the beauty
You are the light
You are the love, love of mine

Breath and sex and sight
All things made for good in love divine




Behind the Song:
The last several songs on the record were intentionally emotional, leading us eventually back to where we came from. We started with wonder and joy, walked through lament and anger into remembrance and hope, which leads us back to wonder and joy. Isn’t this mixture of emotions true of the human experience after all?

We experience all of these mixed emotions all of the time. Our joys are tinged with sorrow, and our pain is rooted in passion and love, which brings us great joy as well. In “You are the Beauty”, we return to the goodness of life. The hope of the last song has led us into unmitigated celebration and joy, claiming all that is good and true and beautiful as gifts and reflections of the Divine.

Musically, this song is an explosion of fun and celebration and even a bit of silliness. I laughed quite a bit in the construction and recording of the whole outro of the song, which moves among modes, styles and time signatures with a sort of childlike freedom. It’s not necessarily cohesive, except perhaps in the fact that the non-cohesion is kind of the point. It’s just kind of outrageous moving from recording the fast clicking of my pedal board case’s latches, to a fairly amorphous guitar solo, to a dirty organ transitioning to a new time signature, with some circus-like lick repeating over the top of it. Life is crazy. But it is wonderful.

-- Gungor
