about

In 1945 in the middle of the New Mexican desert, hubris thought it could recreate the light of God, and yet we continue to stumble in darkness.

lyrics

sun beating down
the sand is everywhere but no ocean to be found
your hand in mine
there’s freedom in together on this hallowed ground
no need for words
the eyes speak a language our mouths never could
tonight may you sleep
blissful and ignorant, believing all is good

hook:
when eye to eye we cannot see
and we forget our humanity
I’ll reach out to you, so you reach out to me
and maybe then I'll meet you in the middle
we’re just molecules and energy
we’re celestial progeny
golden ratio and eternity
someday Love will greet us in the middle

clouds turning green
uncertain is the feeling, deep within the genes
all that’s unseen
there’s no need to fear what’s between the in between

hook:
when eye to eye we cannot see
and we forget our humanity
I’ll reach out to you, so you reach out to me
and maybe then I'll meet you in the middle
we’re just molecules and energy
we’re celestial progeny
golden ratio and eternity
someday Love will greet us in the middle

bridge:
when the night is through
and shadows fade at dawn
dread cannot break through
worry is all gone
it is clear
that we should never fear
fear again

hook:
when eye to eye we cannot see
and we forget our humanity
I’ll reach out to you, so you reach out to me
and maybe then I'll meet you in the middle
we’re just molecules and energy
we’re celestial progeny
golden ratio and eternity
someday Love will greet us in the middle

Men of Science, Men of Faith New York, New York

Men of Science, Men of Faith is a project of NY-based artist Mike Jones. Inspired by a road trip through New Mexico in early 2015, "New Mexico" is simultaneously a love letter to the state and a meditation on the myth of the Old West and the American experience of the 20th century, from Route 66 kitsch to the atomic bomb. ... more
