#40 Balaq (Maqam Mahour)
Maqam - a set of notes, with traditions that define the relationship between them, their patterns and expression. A musical mode. The Maqamat (plural) are patient, inwardly drawn, they are roomy enough for poetry. We worked the concept of the give-and-take between poetry and music.
It's not magic we are yearning for
we are waiting for science
we are yearning for discovery,
We told this to the guys in the legislature
they don’t see the future
and they have false certainty about the past –
when it’s time when it’s time
they will never get that.
IT’S ALWAYS G*D’S TIME don’t they know that?
G*d says – here it comes
we built it in at the beginning
it was created [as it were] to appear in its time
in its time
and you will not interfere with that
I have made miracles already,
-- when it came time for the animal to speak
