Fresh Friday: To the Waters & the Wild

New song and artwork!

Fun fact: This song actually came to me in a dream from my Ancestors. I was watching a music video in the dream, and I was shocked to discover that the video was of myself, performing this exact song with a pop punk band. When I woke up, I remembered most of the words and the tune, but had to figure out the chords and title for myself.

The title comes from this quote:

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
– W.B. Yeats, “The Stolen Child”

Image description: An inked portrait of a being with facial hair, darkened lips, ear and nose piercings, stylized eyebrows, a shaved undercut, pointed ears, wearing dark feathers. Above the portrait are the words “To the Waters & the Wild”. At the bottom of the portrait, hidden the feathers, is a signature in English and Bikol basahan: “Lukayo”.
