Day 11 – A song from your favorite band
Gravity’s Hold, Tim Be Told
He said its fun for the moment / ‘When I grow up, I’ll give it up later on’ / One day he’ll snap back to sober reality / Leave it to fate, look it’s too late and he’s gone
Tim Be Told. One of my favorite artists out there. From their music and lyrics about religious and societal issues to the fact that they produce and write everything. I guess it’s also cause I can relate to most of their songs. Plus, every song is written as if it were a story, beginning with a despondent character with problems that people can relate to, and ending with a resolution of hope and peace. I love songs that are subtly Christian. I don’t know I just do. Maybe because it’s not too in-your-face when you just want background music, yet it can still be deeply personal when you do choose to pay attention to . This band reminds me of this quote:
“To be honest, I don’t want to create an album that pleases every Christian out there & is for the Christian masses. I want to write heaven songs that connect with people everywhere, not just those who are in church already, but those who are maybe searching.”
Tim Be Told demonstrates this wonderfully. But more importantly, I think they show us what it means to really be human, whether or not there’s a spiritual connotation attached to it. Gahh I really want to see them on 9/9 when they come to the Bay Area to perform!
