about

Whole Hearted Fidelity (Fidelity) - song 8 on the Tones of Red album was recorded in a tiled room in South Africa. With the exception of an antique wooden desk, the room was empty.

This is a song about hope and where it may come from. It does so in describing the relationship between the sea, a deck and a crow's nest on a sailing ship, and a choir. We can find ourselves at any one of these 4 levels in our lives, while receiving empathetic or apathetic information from the other levels. The sea symbolises the end and the beginning, the deck is where we would physically be most of our time. In the crow's nest watches a god, while the choir represents the clouds of consciousness. The choir is the ultimate overview effect acting like a spiritual compass such as your soul would to your memories. The willingness to see and sail this ship with your whole-hearted fidelity, means to reside within the 4 levels. Then we will know hope as it travels through us.

lyrics

Whole Hearted Fidelity

How good it feels up here,
the breeze down there, it is so rare.
Even when this ship catches fire,
i'd be the last to sing with the choir.

How good to have a friend up there,
when the mist down here inhales all the air.
No rock would scratch this fragile skin,
cause your friend told you which way the wheel to spin.

Set the sails towards your destiny,
With your whole hearted fidelity.

Up there I can see all that's earth.
Down here I can reach all that's worth.
Even if this ship sinks to the ground,
to our instincts we're forever bound.

How good to have a friend up there,
when the mist down here inhales all the air.
No rock would scratch this fragile skin,
cause your friend told you which way the wheel to spin.

I'll let go of my reality.
Set the sails towards my destiny.
With my whole hearted fidelity.
With my whole hearted fidelity.
