Lyrical References:
Tracks 2 & 10 and album title inspired by stories told by M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Ral., my love you).
Track 3 based on folk tradition of King David (A.S.) and some Hebrew Bible.
Our favorite lyric on track 4, "Those who know don't talk, those who talk don't know," from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching.
End of track 5 adapted from the New Testament, Christ (A.S.) in Gethsemene.
Opening line of track 6 (along with MANY words from older songs) taken from Coleman Barks' translations of Rumi, thank you brothers - we owe you a curry one day!
Final line of track 9 inspired by "Aaron's Song: Man is God in the Forgetting of Himself" from Shaikh Muhaiyaddeen (Ral., salam wa 'alaikum, dear friend).
Title of track 11 from Daniel Ladinsky's rendition of Hafiz.
All poor and silly words for Bawa and Jesus & all the prophets and saints and angels, Qutbs, lights, and anyone who has lost their faith in God.
