lyrics

hey now kid,
they’re gonna try and make you
just as sad as they are
hey now kid,
they won’t stop accusing
‘til you’re all but dead and useless

it’s too easy to get confused
make things more complicated than they really are
we all forget the simple truth
that you can’t see the stars
when you’re standing underneath the streetlights

it seems easier,
to live by man made rules
than to live by the spirit
so they’re gonna baptize you
push your little head under the water
speak the old religious words
tell you that you’ve been made new
they’ve got everything you need but the fire that never dies away

about

Jesse Hill Hamilton, Ontario

Sometimes I think I should stop writing songs; it's time consuming, frustrating, and not at all profitable.

I keep writing songs because in a ridiculous, irrational way, I believe songwriting is an an essential part of the human experience. I believe that songs can transcend the capacity of language in connecting us to one another, to God, to nature, to our truest selves.

Cheers,
-Jesse
