"Dirt" [Experiment 01]

"Dirt" by The Brodcast


[ya, spelled 'brodcast' -- put that auto correct away.]

 

I've been making music with varying levels of focus for 8 years.

For me, music is a vehicle to spread ideas and feelings. I love it because it goes beyond words and can be used for medicine, motivation, and making connections. 

Music, unlike the news or politics or sports, can represent and strengthen the voice of the people.

I see it as a given that we're living in real critical times -- and I strive to keep that in my heart and mind as I go through my day to day, and especially when I create.

This song is called "Dirt." It's about staying grounded and walking the path while you're dreaming those big dreams.

I made it in my bedroom last year using my voice, a cheap microphone, and some basic Logic Pro synths via an axiom 25. 

I took it to a Seattle studio called the Ruby Room where Nima Skeemz, a producer and engineer, helped me put some polish on it and track the verse. 

Moving forward, I'm looking for other producers to work with, as I don't have any gear for making beats right now.

I've got a lot of concepts and can write a song in an hour if the beat's right. 

Peace.

These are the lyrics:

"Dirt"

it’s all in the vibe
all in the way that we keep it alive
all in the feeling you feeling inside
when you know it’s a ride
only here til we die…(die)
path of the stars
all about finding the giants we are
open the heart even when it gets hard
playing your part and the ripples go far
it might be a smile
it might be some art
it might be a while before you see the return
but dammit, it’s worth it for all that you learn
pursuing the purpose you here on this earth (earth earth)
and nothing is perfect so don’t get caught up in just judging your work (work work)
just start planting seeds and see what you grow when they rise from the dirt (dirt dirt)
i don’t know why
but we’re here for a while
just to see what could work
(just to see what could work)
look to the stars
while i’m dreaming but
still got my feet in this dirt
planting my seeds
just to see what could grow out of all this
intention, attention and love
this path of the stars I been walking and
what it’s gon’ make me become
just to see what could grow out of all this
intention, attention and love
this path of the stars I been walking and
what it’s gon’ make me become
