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

Mother 05:20
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

Möbius Wave 04:39
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

*NOTE:
This project is best experienced in its entirety. Set aside fifteen minutes and enjoy the ride.

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
