WARCRY by Angel Brynner

baby just walk with me

i’m really not afraid of your shadow

baby just walk with me

i’m gonna get you thru this battle

baby just stick with me

we’re gonna make it thru this battle

&even as you walk with me

remember we are in his shadow

[repeat 12 twelve times, slowly] said at the same slow meditative pace again &again, very deeply. with lil kids all “ahhh~”irsh glen style in the background, over rolling roaring waves of layered eerie orchestral sound. this guitar picks across it almost like arabesques, counterpointing the pedantic rhythm of the voice softly through the storm of sound-then storm dies down[ as one pushes through to the center of it.
now guy sings at the same higher register[not falsetto-still manly]as the guitar across the calm in the midst of storm &instead of b4,now the guitar underscores the words said in that register for the bridge{like a guy on his knees in front of a child,consoling&assuring her}:
dont run away
dont cry
you’re not afraid
&neither am i
you know its time
&God is on your side~
(the guitar picks at same pace [at “dont cry” & so on,louder version of guys voice])
dont be afraid
dont try
i understand
what i see in your eye
i know you’re mine
& we’ll be…just…-fine~
then a repeat of that, still softly,almost a mandolin/banjo sound to the picking variations on that theme music grows back to more crescendoey ominous as his encouragement cloaks/gears her to burst back out
its gonna fade
no lie
i understand
the look in your eye
its all on the line-
and its time to …ride
into the final repeat of the chorus/meditation[which is the whole song,wordwise],except she’s singing it w/him, her voice rising up out of the angelic irishglen voices still anchoring the storm in the backgroundof the symphony-this lil kid repeating what you’ve been singing to her the whole time.

baby just walk with me

i’m really not afraid of your shadow

baby just walk with me

i’m gonna get you thru this battle

baby just stick with me

we’re gonna make it thru this battle

&even as you walk with me

remember we are in his shadow

until it gets to the final part& you & the child both keep resinging

remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
(as the sounds start to ebb-)
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in hi shadow
remember we are in his shadow
& eventually your voice drops away & its just the kid voice, but strongly,flinty.then she stops.takes a breath on tape & music drops all the way away & she says it again-
remember we are in his shadow.
then the kids voices join in chanting last line forcefully[another brick inthe wallstyle].
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
remember we are in his shadow
name of the song: WARCRY.

I’m hearing Lenny Kravitz’s voice singing this with the kid, but in a way that he has never sung before.Like if he was to go bauhaus/dead can dance vein & mess w/it or something-its really intense.beautiful. the books are pleased this morning.
