about

Julius Eastman (1940-1990), arranged by Horse Lords, featuring the voice of Abdu Ali

lyrics

Com'on now baby, stay on it.
Change this thread on which we move
from invisible to hardly tangible.

With you movin and groovin on it,
making me feel fine as wine,
I don't have to find the MEANING,
because you will have filled in his most invisible
and intangible Majesty's place;
But only if you stay on it. You dig
Although his majesty does stay with it,
he can't stay on it. (Does that move you?)

Ties that move and break,
disappear, and return again, are not ties that
stay on it.
They are sometimy bonds. These bonds cause
screens like the Edge of Night, with
Ivory snow liquid to appear.

This is why baby cakes, I'm ringing you up
in order to replay this song message
so that you can get the feelin
O sweet boy
Because without the movin and the groovin,
the carin and the sharin,
the reelin and the feelin
I mean really.

-Julius Eastman, program note
for Stay on It (1973)
