A rhapsody in five parts

“Time, you know it was never mine.” Möbius Wave

Ending where it begins, Transitioning travels a restless arc of
transformation: one borne of unforeseen loss and confinement. David
Ward’s new work is a reflective, turbulent and triumphant rhapsody. - Jason Motz

Track Name: Scatter of Ash
In the scatter of the ash
She is nowhere to be found
We all ran with the sound of thunder
And I never stopped to turn around
Track Name: Mother
Could you be my mother
And I your son
I’ll love you like no other
Until the other she has come
She has come

Linen light memories
You’re my tall and dark sentry

Let me stay
Here with you
Until we both
Know what to do

And it goes on and on and on and on and on
She keeps saying hold on hold on
But for how long
how long

When it goes on and on and on and on and on
Don’t know if they’re gone, they’re gone
He says they’re gone
so long

The light of your eyes
Escapes me
Trying to hold on tight to the memories

Let me stay
Here with you
Until we both
Know what to do

And it goes on and on and on and on and on
She keeps saying hold on hold on
But for how long, how long

When it goes on and on and on and on and on
Don’t know if they’re gone, they’re gone
He says they’re gone
Please don’t be wrong

You can be my mother
And I your son
Don’t you disappear
And I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
I won’t ever run
Just tell me when it’s won
Swear I won't ever run
I won’t ever run
You’re my golden sun
Track Name: Möbius Wave
Don’t
Don’t take me for a fool
I can feel the wind
Pick me up to take me through

Control
You know I burn so slow
Take me to the water
I’ll curl up and drift like smoke

The waning moon
Moves ever so slow
Fall up into my dream
Down through the valley below

Look to the sky for a sign of change
Caught in the swell of a Möbius Wave

Blue
But I have more than that for you
Sometimes it’s never
And then it’s all too soon

Time
You know it was never mine
Now it’s coming like the morning wave
Bringing glory, hallelujah to the stage

My love
The waning moon
Moves ever so slow
Wake of wine
Under a blood shot Barbera night

Look to the sky for a sign of change
Riding high upon a Möbius Wave
