Story

"Not The End" was composed and tracked to a laptop in my dining room in 2007 and used as a production demo for a Flashpoint Academy (Chicago) recording workshop. It was gradually refined and edited with bass, drums and backing vocals performed by Bob Nyswonger and Chris Arduser (psychodots) and a vocal cameo by Bee Haskins. It was remixed and debuted on "Get Real Gone: Road Songs for Public Radio," an album benefitting Cincinnati stations.

 

Lyrics

Save a whale

It's not the end of the world but it's the start of something new

Thank God it's not all up to me but there's something you could do if you wanted to

You could start off with a smile when you want to hurt somebody then wait a little while

Show some faith, show some style, and you just might save a whale my precious little child—trust me now

It's not the end of the world. It's just the start of something new

This place could use a lot of love. There must be something we could do if we wanted to

If we could start with some restraint instead of yelling at each other—there's a picture we could paint

Of a universal truce led by angels running loose with the wisdom of the saints—trust me now

It's not the end of the world

There's nothing to like about fear; nothing to fear about love

Someday you will be a god—the day you learn how to forgive

And the angels will adore you because you live and let live like they want you to—trust me now

It's not the end of the world—trust me now

You just might save a whale.
