Jackson Dyer – The Font

Amazingly soft song by Jackson Dyer

“In the tropical North of Australia, around where my brother lives, there are an abundance of beautiful waterfalls that you can trek up to. I wrote “The Font” after one particularly beautiful bush walk that cut through dense jungle and finished at the feet of a gushing waterfall. Personally, I find nature to be very calming and spiritual, and in “The Font”, I lyrically compare swimming in the fresh water to being baptised in a natural “baptismal font”. Without formal religion in my life, I find a lot of meaning in the wonder of nature and I wrote this song almost as a gospel hymn, dedicated to unrivaled beauty of the Natural World.”Jackson Dyer

LYRICS:

Deep in her soft, green bosom, along the riverbed Haunting figures stood
reverent, ‘round cascading genesis

She stood bare in front of me,
A blazing light, profound, my headspring
Alone in this temple,
A siren called me to the Font, and I went under, I went under

Water trickled through her feet, the faithful bending to her will Skin to skin,
I held her close, the ritual was complete

She stood bare in front of me,
A blazing light, profound, my headspring
Alone in this temple,
A siren called me to the Font, and I went under (x2)
