From "Crossing" SACD/DSD Download 2005/2014 release. FLAC 24/88.2 downsample master on BC. Live studio, no overdubs, no edits, no effects. Recorded DSD to 8 tracks mixed DSD to stereo and 5.1 surround sound. DSD master tracks available at www.davidelias.com

As we imagine the world so it is and becomes. I believe this more and more, the more I witness in this life. With the same ensemble as in the track above, this song steps away from a careful examination of what we imagine to what we need and desire in a bolder statement. Lively pursuit, ignoring the scenes that distract and reduce our energy. DSD captures this as well without isolation of the instruments. In fact the natural bleed from minimal micing is what I had experimented with from the beginning and came to rely on as a natural way to record an acoustic band.

lyrics

Close My Eyes (from "Crossing") – David Elias

I close my eyes and criticize and sympathize
And rest upon my dying day
I breathe the words the ones you heard
That story blurred
I watch them as they drift away

And I close my eyes
To that cold and windy day
I close my eyes
I don't want to see again
Close my eyes
To the higher window
I don't know what time it closes

I paint that picture while they lecture pure conjecture
I deny that river why
I seek the desert for the love that lusts to wander
Through the womb of fire and sky

And I close my eyes
To that cold and windy day
I close my eyes
I don't want to see again
Close my eyes
To the higher window
I don't know what time it closes
