The Knife that Cuts a Tear VERSE 1; Walking through uncertain times, Of promised lands that make divides No rush to open eyes, And see the world through greater minds IS THIS FREEDOM? VERSE 2; Mirrors help conformity Run circles past reality Mindless is the rising seas Our sight disease, pure ecstasy. GROWING WISER, ARE WE GROWING WISER? VERSE 3; Anxious is to those a food Where justice fails a million truths Powers hold is like a rope A noose around the others throat SWEET SURRENDER, TIME TO GIVE UP ALL THE GAMES AND BE FREE. VERSE 4; Nature waits in open view With wounds made ripe from shortened sight When will all the slumbered wake And stop the slaughter and the rape. CHORUS; LIFE IS HERE NOW!! FEET PLACED FIRMLY ON THE GROUND SWEET SURRENDER TO THE TRUTH THAT NEVER YIELDS GROWING WISER LIKE THE KNIFE THAT CUTS A TEAR THIS IS FREEDOM LIVING WITHOUT FEAR!! Music and Lyrics by Kristin Rule © 2010


Kristin Rule's new release, 'The Knife that Cuts a Tear', is reaching deep into the hearts and minds of listeners from all walks of life. A composition graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts, Kristin has found her voice in the form of a cello and a loopstation. In performance, her original compositions are created live, layer by layer, mesmerising audiences with exquisite melodies, rich harmonies and beautifully raw sonorities.
