about

This was recorded with guitarist Harlan and bassist Jake Rivera, with whom I'd collaborated many times over the years (see, Polymorphia, Elbows Akimbo: the Bhagavad Gita). I am trying to find out the percussionists name and will credit when resolved!

lyrics

Born Dazed

What I feel is
There’s something strange and
Terribly unfamiliar about it all
What I mean is
I feel the shit is coming down
On, or around, this spinning ball

All my born days
I always thought it would end in
Fire or Frost
No-one ever let on to me
That we could get anywhere
Anywhere but lost

Just to be different
I won’t believe that
Just to be different
I won’t believe that

What I want is
What I need is
Some kind of meaning
Some faith to replace my doubt
Its not so easy
But it’s not so hard
To find something besides myself to care about

I was born dazed
Wide eyed and wondering
What kind of place have I landed on?
No-one ever let on to me
That we could go anywhere
Anywhere but wrong

Just to be different
I won’t believe that
Just to be different
I won’t believe that


I I
was born
was born
dazed
dazed

I was born
DAZED

about

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I spent some years writing and performing with ensembles that remain important in the history of Bay Area arts, then did time tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC, followed by a decade in Europe, recording all the while, before coming "home" to NOLA. This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
