BEN NOBLE TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE "BLUEBIRD" ON 01.21.20

Steeped heavily in imagery, Bluebird is a song about tragic beauty; about what our pain and fighting must look like from the perspective of a bluebird, an impartial observer. As human beings, we put so much effort into appearances, into hiding our darkness and pain. We are beautiful like a lily of the valley flower, but inside, we hide secret poison. 

Around the time of writing this, Noble was seeing a professional counselor to face his own secret poisons that had plagued him his whole life. The re-opening of long-scabbed-over wounds mixed with intense writer's block caused Noble to enter a season of sharp anxiety and sadness. Facing the darkest parts of himself, Noble was inspired to write what would become his second full-length album, Where The Light Comes In, due out in March 2020. The title, as with the album's main themes, is inspired by the poet Rumi's quote "the wound is where the light enters you".

 

It is the final single to be released prior to the album release date, the final preview of what is to come.

 

Lyrics: 

Bluebird, spirit of the wasteland, fly - you fly

Bluebird, beauty of the wasteland, fight

Petals burning, ordinary night

Fluke birth, riven in your wrappings white - mother of mine

Slowed hurt, running from the fury's fire

Red and burning, ordinary

The lines, the lines, I see by the wayside

Cold heart, full-blood, the brain-cries

The lies, the lies, I see where the pain hides

Wolf heart, a full-blood brain-cry

Bluebird, lily of the valley, cry - all that you might

Truth burns brighter when the hate is high

Keep it burning, scribbling

The full arc, break it to me one time

Keep it burning, scribble all the lines

The lines, the lines, I see by the wayside

Cold heart, full-blood, the brain-cries

The lies, the lies, I see where the pain hides

Wolf heart, a full-blood brain-cry

Feed the panic, feed the panic you want

Feed the panic, feed the panic, feed the panic you want
