High above the surface
Buried in the ground
Swallowed by the silence
The fury and the sound
Freefalling, no direction
But the world keeps spinning round
And I am weightless
I am weightless

Suspended animation
Tied to the floor
Terrifying absence
An absence to be borne
I am losing all direction
And the world spins even more

I am weightless
Against the mass of time
I am breathless
In the wreckage of her life
But I am striving
I am striving
To rebuild
I will not bow down

Relatively moving
Relatively still
Opposite emotions
Gravity, freewill
A small change in my direction
And the world is spinning still
And I am weightless

Something about the "I am weightless - free falling" speaks to me.   Downloaded it.
Could someone walk me through how to do it through RP so they can benefit?
I really enjoy the americana combined with the  larger string section, 7 from me!

BTW, I went on spotify to save this track, and couldn't figure out why all other releases of this artist were classical albums from 20 or more years ago.
Turns out there's another musician called James Wood, a conductor specifically, and spotify just threw this album with the conductor.
The James Wood of this particular album is apparently brand new and hasn't actually fixed his spotify page... weird

Good stuff anyway!
I think there is an error in the album info, this was released in 2016 not in 2020

Ditto
Bumped my rating to a 7 as well.

Thinking to start this of at a Decent-5 from South BillyBurg. Not bad but I've kinda heard it before.

Same here, +1 to 7 today. Pretty solid effort to be honest, those strings helped sell me and maybe another uprate next time.

LLRP!
now!! if he was singing about being 'witless' ...
Man, do I hear Phil Keaggy in his voice.  Not in the guitar though.  
Started off hearing Petty and then on to something different. Can't say I am ready to rate it yet.
