about

We will fly through the dawn because we are MOVING ON. And because that is what we, the Birds of the Night, are here to do. We are here to say NO MORE destruction to this precious planet and all her beings. We are here to sing a story of fierce hope, healing and reconciliation.

These songs range from ritualistic prayer songs to lyrical folk-pop to hip-hop dance grooves. They weave stories on critical topics including race, climate, hope, hopelessness, and belonging.

Thank you for listening and I pray that this music is medicine to your heart and soul.

Track Name: Be Longing
Dont Ask
Don’t Tell
Don’t Look
Don’t See

Don’t Breathe
Don’t Love
Don’t Feel
Don’t Remember

Don’t Breathe
Don’t Love
Don’t Forgive
And Don’t Recover

I am my own nightmare sometimes
Are you your own nightmare sometimes?

Be who you were really meant to be
When you look out at your life and
See who you were really meant to see
When you look in the mirror
Shoots are sprouting up all the time
From underneath the darkness of your mind

Now I know I’ve been wondering
When’s it all gonna change
The sleeping giant awoke from the thunder
And now he’s filled with raaaaage

So get up off your high horse
And let it ride on into the sun
Now is the time to use your voice
It doesn’t matter if it’s already done

You’re one of the stars
You’re a grain of sand
You walk along the water with your feet on the land

And if you don’t feel like
You have a place
Among all the people in the human race
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
And be strong, be strong, be longing to be strong

And if you don’t feel like
You have a place
Among all the beings on the earthly plane
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
And be strong, be strong, be longing to be strong

Dont Ask
Don’t Tell
Don’t Look
Don’t See

Don’t Breathe
Don’t Love
Don’t Feel
Don’t Remember

Don’t Breathe
Don’t Love
Don’t Forgive
And Don’t Recover

I am my own nightmare sometimes
Are you your own nightmare sometimes?

Well get up off your high horse
And let it ride on into the sun
Now is the time to use your voice
It doesn’t matter if it’s already done

You’re one of the stars
You’re a grain of sand
You walk along the water with your feet on the land

And if you don’t feel like
You have a place
Among all the people in the human race
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
And be strong, be strong, be longing to be strong

And if you don’t feel like
You have a place
Among all the beings on the earthly plane
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
And be strong, be strong, be longing to be strong

And if you don’t feel like you have a place Among all the people in the human race
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
And if you don’t feel like
You have a place
Among all the beings on the earthly plane
Then belong, belong, be longing to belong
