Edge Kingsland Presents: 7 Days

1.
So it began Blazing colours squeezed through Your hands And the dust flew from chalky wasteland And so it began. And the Earth, she’s gasping for breath Oh and life comes from the depths And the Sky she kisses farewell to the land As they separate their hands And so it began. And so it began. But for now I’m sleeping on the concrete. Prophesying on the pavement Of broken bones and broken dreams And I’m living on the edge of a void. Out of nothing comes something And so it began. ‘Cos every day’s a new creation Every breath life We started out with nothing Now we’re something. The Sun smiles the colours of dawn. Like a mother she smiles at her new born Out of nothing comes something And so it began.

Morning comes and breaks the night The air is thick, the air is thick Let’s clear the air, let’s separate Like hate and love Like hate and love Back and forward, or up and down Is the earth still, or does it spin around? This water’s chill, it suffocates Let’s clear the air, let’s separate And if man’s to rule their worlds This must be clear, crystal clear To frame the calm of cascades still With pain and death turn rivers red Oceans come down And rest upon the earth Fall down from the sky All this pain and this beauty for us to feel When the light and the sound beams off through the air I can’t believe all this could exist in space this time And the spirit, it hovers for all to see I’m new to this, but I like what I see
3.
Here, I lie awake The rock, divorced from the waves The sound of the hills and the stone Echo a promise made to fill up my home So I wait in the dirt I wait for the bones I wait for Your word To be spoke like a cold fresh wind that'll give me my own I feel the life filling in my well I feel my ground open up its mouth And I'll show my sons and daughters how to grow For all the blessed love, this is what I know You shake stars to the sky And You make them as guides in the night As You speak these roots grow deep To anchor a promise you still hold to me So I still hold to You Like you still hold to me So I still hold to You
4.
Let there be lights In the expanse of the sky To separate day from night Give us seasons, give us time Ever constant Spring, winter, summer, fall You are constant Let there be sleep The stillness and stars Moon changes by night You remain, as we dream Ever constant Hour, minutes, days and years You are constant You mark the skies with signs You sustain Matariki Father, you find us Even in the dark You remind us Again and again Of Your constant love

Still me now my beating heart My hands restless and eyes open in wonder Feeling further past beyond Me and my shelter. Somewhere it's a part of me, I and I are one Nature nurture my infancy Awoo Come and breathe together Awoo. Awoo. Oh come, come and breathe together. Stay with me spine and spineless And feathered friend what say words for Father/Mother of time Show me how it could've been...at the start. Awoo. Awoo. Come and breathe together Breathe together I see colour I see colour and flight and blue sky Burst through my eyes I hear singing Songs of the dark and deep Crash and collide Crash and collide Crash and collide Crash and collide Come and take a hold of me Come and take a hold of me Come and take a hold of me Awoo. Awoo. Awoo. Awoo. Come and take a hold of me Messengers of the light Wandered of my heart Show me how it could've been At the start. Awoo Come and take a hold of me Show me how it could've been At the start. At the start. Awoo Come and take a hold of me Show me how it could've been At the start. At the start. Come like colour Come colour run Crash and collide Let us breathe together Spine to spineless Form and feather Sing with me now Let us breathe together Come crash and collide Awoo Let us breathe together Come colour and motion Awoo Let us breathe together

When You gathered me Dust was in Your hand As the breath of gold lungs Made dew upon the land Gather me and gather me again Lies will scatter my mind Despite your watchful eye, Active hand and warm smile And brilliant design Gather me and gather me again I've a thorn I try hide With threads I can't unwind And I will fall in wars That I don't recognise Gather me and gather me again Wonders of the Pure Heart Made vivid in the sky Wonders of the Pure Heart The music of mankind Gather me and gather me again When You gathered me Dust was in Your hand As the breath of old lungs Made new upon the land Gather me and gather me again

All of this divine All of this The Artist’s design Ours a hallowed earth Under stars resounding with light Dawn in every death Heaven’s shade upon the landscape God in every breath The bread and wine in every sunset So it is with the world So it is with the way You are And all the world is a lightshow And the mountains scream Your name I can’t help but join the song And all the world is a lightshow And it’s screaming out your name I can’t help but join the song The seas in endless sway Just a fraction of the depths of You The Maker in every mark Skies designed to trace Your outline So it is with the world So it is with the way You are

about

Fiat lux. Let there be light.

With one phrase, the existence of our sphere began.
The creation poem of Genesis illustrates the magnum opus of God's artistry.
From the void our world is crafted, in explosions of colour and seismic shifts.
The blank canvas of the universe is traced with stars and a vast roadmap of planets.

But creation is not just a moment in time. It is an endless cycle.
The artist joins the arc of creation when he stares down a blank canvas.
The musician tackles the void with every note and verse.
Seven Days is our attempt to join the creation story. It's a journey that sees songwriters collaborating with writers and visual artists, creating their interpretations of each of the days of creation.
