about

The opening Track of "Obelisk & Dome" about a guy feeling Awkward but then a bit Brave.
Its Americana style of music with nice Slide & Organ swells ans a passionate chorus vocal

lyrics

Dome

An obelisk and dome (a dome a dome a dome)
A wail and a moan (a moan a moan a moan)
An angel and a harpoon
An odd one out alone

Some gumption and a backbone (a bone a bone a bone)
Gutless and alone (alone alone alone)
An angel and her halo-ween mask
Oh odd one take me home

Oh sweet angel
Gather up your wings
Your halo’s dim
So toss it to the wind
Your robe’s askew
Give me everything

A dirty dog still needs a bone (a bone a bone a bone)
And a tickle of his tum (his tum his tum his tum)
Even an angel gets her freak on
Sometimes you’ve just got to get some

A honeybee and a flower (power power power)
A horned up love hormone (a moan a moan a moan)
An angel and her pitchfork
Pokes my ass back home

Oh sweet angel
Gather up your wings
Your halo’s dim
So toss it to the wind
Your robe’s askew
Give me everything

It’s steamy and warm
Up in paradise a raging storm
Rain your loving won’t you rain it down on me?
It’s steamy and warm
Up in paradise a raging storm
Rain your loving won’t you rain it down on me

My obelisk
Needs your dome
Balancing
Up my home
My sun won’t shine
So bathe me in your moon
