Brown Bones – “I Become Light” (A Tribute to Drew Keys)

Shot and directed by Sameel “Samo” Kush-I Johnson, on location in Jamaica, WI. “I Become Light” is a livication to Andrew “Drew Keys” Stoch. May his spirit live on through his music.

Emerging singer songwriter, Brown Bones hits on the nerve of painful losses, peaceful passages, twilight battles and passionate swells on his forthcoming self titled debut album. Oddly familiar with inventive twists, each song is a chapter of its own accord and all together a true and beautiful saga. Tipping his hat to folk and indie traditions while interweaving minimal, modern and electronic elements with an intoxicating freshness; Brown Bones is due August 27th everywhere you stream music.

 

Lyrics:

Oooh, oh, oooh

Oooh oh, oooh

 

I’m an animal and I’m terrible when I want to be alone

I can’t stand it all, it’s unbearable so I’d rather stay at home

They wanna know, when it’s share-able but my status doesn’t show

I try and hide inside, I don’t care at all. I keep crying through my tone

 

Every note and progression, I learn another lesson

Can’t take away the pain with pills, I put pain into the session

I pray God gives me the reckoning, When he shows me all the things I did

And makes a way in heaven, when she sees me comin’ up

 

I become light, Light!

And walk straight to the sunshine

A candle in a dark night

A good song on a long ride

Oh my my, on to Zion I, I become

 

Light

I become the light

Oooh ooh oh

 

I didn’t plan to go, I couldn’t tell you all, it was the final show

But the worst of all, I know it’s terrible, even the family didn’t know

 

I really meant to call. I was scared to go down that rabbit hole

So I contemplated my very soul, a real artist to the bone

 

Every note and progression, I learn another lesson

I can’t replace the love with pills, I put love into the session

I pray Jah gives me the reckoning when I look at all the things I did

And makes a way to the mountain, when she sees me comin’ up

 

I become light, Light!

I walk straight to the sunshine

A candle in a dark night

A boom tune in a fast ride

Oh my my, Haile Selassie by my side, I become

 

Light,

 

I become the light

I become I become I become, I become  the light

light, high

 

Set me free, oh

Set me free, oh oh

Set me free, oh

Set me free
