Same Old Story

Lyrics

Born to open for
Mankind nature's door
A life known by a few

And those who knew that shared
Their knowledge fewer cared
About what plants could do

For most felt it was mad to conceive
That plants thought, felt, and moved quite like we
But with instruments Bose would devise
Would take Science itself by a surprise, so

On we go to where who knows
To a place where there's still non-believers
What will it take for heaven sakes
For those who find what's real too hard to believe in
It's that same old story again.

Born of slaves who died
Too soon to realize
The need his life would be

Selflessy he gave
His wisdom to a way
Where first no minds would see

He said if farm land was to be rich
We must plant crops to replenish it
But it took him persuasion and tests
To convince them Canver's way was best, so

On we go to where who knows
To a place where there's still non-believers
What will it take for heaven sakes
For those who find what's real too hard to believe in
It's that same old story again.

The essence of a genius

The essence of a genius
There are albums that are essentially pure in its simplicity; possess the charm crystalline in the melodies, and overflow naturalness for his instrumentation. Reflect the greatness of a man who is synonymous of magic. A magic that is seen with the intensity of lightning, paradoxically transporting you to the quiet life of your soul. This way it can design a conceptual work -in part instrumental- of Stevie Wonder in the '70's to nature.

Journey through the secret life of plants, was an explosion of creativity that sought to capture musically the love for life whatever is form and state, bringing light in the form of music to the documentary "The Secret Life of Plants".

He is also a rough diamond structured for melodies purity single, which over the years is keeping alive the essence. A gift to the sensitivity unadorned melodies through flowing unchecked from the mind of a man with a talent unique. A delicate touch that permeates the senses ... it's simply the essence of a genius, Stevie Wonder in his natural state.
