The Roadless Travel

September 16, 2016

Often times songs come to me in the form of a "nag" or a dream. Either a melody persists on asserting its presence in the midst of my daily routine, or a phrase captures my attention, compelling me to write it out, to then find there were further elaborations on the phrase lurking beneath the surface. Its mostly a circular process - not at all linear: from poem/lyric to paper to melody to piano to harmonies/chords to rhythm. Each component is a rhythm of its own. Such is the process with "The Roadless Travel". I like to say that all of my songs write themselves; I am just the channel/messenger.




- lyrics/composition: Goussy Célestin


A road less traveled
The path to internal delusion
As I fly into my mind's confusion
To tear down the wall of Ego's illusion

Set sail my heart on butterfly wings
Forge a light, new yet old
Ah, sweet memory

Don't force, just flow
cause down deep you know
The roadless travel

Though you know deep inside
There are treasures to find
You wonder, "is it safe to go?"
The fear takes a hold and
discredits your soul as the home
of all there is to know.

I can let my mind perform its trickery
Or just finally let it go and simply be
No more time to waste
Yet, stay patient
In no time I'll finally reach

The road less traveled
The path to eternal light
Sing heart take flight
Let love lead right (to)
The roadless travel..
