Essential Songs:Wovenhand-Your Russia

Your Russia (Without Hands)-Wovenhand
medicine tongue and a heavy hand
together made a fist
they put me down and I do not rise
and now as an old child
I’ll hand it down
I’ll hand it down
then I blow around
see me blow around
wovenhand-essentialsjust like dirty paper

medicine tongue and a heavy hand
together made a list
row on row
of cold and hardened hearts that wish
my weeds and flowers
would together both grow wild
from a distance
from a distance

they come up close to smile
medicine tongue and a heavy hand
together made a fist
they put me down and I do not rise

and now as an old child
far be it from me to take care
take care the words you say
in heart on new’s day

by word of mouth
all young men do stagger
and all come to shambles by heart
saw your eyes wide and flashing
setting the woods on fire
breathing heavy dirt
beneath the skin of a liar
did I cross your heart
behind my back just then
I must push on hard
in prayer and take it by force
though you’ve said it
you say it better
with more conviction than I

medicine tongue and a heavy hand
together made a list
row on row
of cold and hardened hearts that wish
my weeds and flowers
would together both grow wild
from a distance
from a distance
they come up close to smile

In this driving rant about church ritual and traditions suppress spiritual growth and keeps us as children in our faith, David Eugene Edwards and Wovenhand stomp and moan and wail.  Edwards recounts his struggles to find himself as a believer after spending a life in a tightly controlled church environment.  “My Russia” is a cornerstone of Wovenhand shows and Edwards uses the song as a platform to encourage your spiritual journey.

Is your church’s rituals standing in the way of your spiritual development?

Do you feel like dirty paper blown around?

Do you see what Edwards says to do about it?
