State of All Things : Title Track

Lyrics by Ruby Velle | Recordings by Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics 

(verse 1) 

lost tribes of our past

lingering in waves

silently but I can sense 

them rolling in their graves

they echo disdain 

for how we've lost our way

The Earth in all her power

shakes under the weight 

Will those we leave behind

learn from our mistakes

or will they be the ones

to seal our fate?

rocks turn to pebbles 

streams turn to stone

strange how this life

life picks & chooses

from it's own


(chorus) 

In this state of all things

we keep believing

love is that higher realm 

That we are seeking 

In the state of all things

we keep believing 

one love, can guide our many journeys 


(verse 2) 

The question remains

do we move forward just the same?

what can we gain, what will maintain

from fighting over separate faiths?

summer and winter

waiting turn

circling and longing for

true colors to emerge.

And even trees evolve

shedding leaves to show

that giving up the past

can only make us grow 

the moon and sun 

They dance to their eternal song 

and we in their wake,


we hope, we pray

that all keeps spinning on 


(chorus) 

In this state of all things

we keep believing


love is that higher realm 

That we are seeking 

In the state of all things

we keep believing 

one love, can guide our many journeys 


(Bridge)


Sometimes

I ask why

and the fear 

Likes flames

It rises 


Last time

forgot my pride

Laid down it

down to die


This time 

I look inside

To shift what's 

there on the outside 


Oo, and next time 

i know the truth

the state of all this 

is good 


One love can guide our many journeys

In this state of all things


Oh, In the state of all things yeah

Oh, we keep on believing 

One love is all we need
