    Not too much to this one but heard it today and loved it! It’s about leaving the cave. It struck me how much leaving the cave of denial resonates with people, and this folky number is just steady and reassuring in its own way—the steady beat and lyrics like ‘let reason guide you’—so thought it’s worth sharing:

    José González – Leaf Off / The Cave

    [Chorus]
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out

    [Verse 1]
    Why can’t you take the leaf off your mouth
    Now that you have the facts on your side?
    Take a moment to reflect where you’re from
    Let reason guide you
    See all tracks lead you out from the dark
    See all tracks lead you out to the stars

    [Verse 2]
    Why can’t you take the leaf off your mouth
    Now that you have the facts on your side?
    Take a moment to reflect where we’re going
    Let reason guide you
    See all tracks lead you out from the dark
    See all tracks lead you out to the stars

    [Chorus]
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out

    [Verse 3]
    Why can’t you take the leaf off you’re mouth
    Now that you have the facts on your side?
    Take a moment to reflect who we are
    Let reason guide you
    See all tracks lead you out from the dark

    [Bridge]
    How the light feeds life
    What makes up you and I
    What it takes to thrive
    What we need to survive
    How we flourish and die
    What it means to be alive
    What it means to be alive

    [Chorus]
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out
    Let the light lead you out

    I really like that. If someone told me that it would certainly grab my attention. I have found in discussing these ideas with fellow travellers that the more I am upfront about the magnitude of these ideas, the more they are intrigued and want to know more. Thanks for sharing.
