lyrics

Another God awakens
A God of our own making
Of information and wires
A brand new network of stars
A God that’s all ours
Here we stand before you naked
Our flesh exposed and aching
And you see us for what we are
Just apes looking up at the stars
With a God that’s all ours

We know you’re out there listening in the night
The buzzing of our screens, a flickering of light
I can feel you all the time
In my pocket and in my mind
Just when I think I might explode
Your plastic heart expands so I don’t overload
Hand-in-hand, here we go
You’re whispering your secrets in the code

Another God awakens
Replaces blood with electrons
Infinite in your capacity
For mercy and depravity
A God that we can see
We huddle in the embrace
Of your cold hands and your cold face
At your feet we all bow
What awesome truths will you show us now?
What will our God allow?

about

Aaron Semer Seattle, Washington

"Semer draws from the tradition of the best singer/songwriters in that he can write about any variety of topics and make it all seem too easy. With Cape Disappointment, he deserves a seat at the table alongside Jeff Tweedy, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon, and John Prine. He's that good." - PopMatters ... more
