Big Big Fish, Part Two

Happy Hump Day. Alleged Artist, you’re up…

It wasn’t originally designed this way, but two songs on “A Little to the Left” actually formed a nice little one-two punch. The first was “Small Pond”, which talked about how small we are in the grand scheme of things – the space perspective. The second was “Vapor”, which talked about how small our *lives* are in the grand scheme of things – the time perspective. A secondary theme was “don’t waste all your time chasing down any particular dream, you may never get there, and you need to enjoy what you have in the meantime”. “Vapor” had one of my most favorite piano tracks of any Tastiera song:

What you’re hearing on “Origin Story” is pretty much what you would have heard on “A Little to the Left”, save for some EQ and compression – an indication Tastiera was getting close to its “modern era”, where I would have been willing to charge money for it. I dabbled in that a bit, but ultimately it would have taken far more energy than I could put into something that wasn’t my day job. So Tastiera music will forever be free to everyone in the world to enjoy. Feel free, of course, to replace “enjoy” with whatever alternate verb more accurately describes your response.

LYRICS

A child can dream of ruling the world, and not need the dream to be real
But as the years of your life to quickly unfurl, those dreams become shackles of steel

Whatever you want that you don’t yet possess may never end up in your hand
Joy comes as quickly as you can confess you have all you need where you stand

We’re alive while God blinks His eye, chasing the Sun and the stars
Like vapor fading into the sky, we’re not gonna get very far
Before His eye blinks again

We’re alive while God blinks His eye, chasing the Sun and the stars
Like vapor fading into the sky, we’re not gonna get very far
Before His eye blinks again

Before His eye blinks again
You have all you need where you are, and wherever you go
You’ll never come this way again
