Falling - Single

Musically this song is a sister to the desert noir style of Arizona-based band Calexico. Lyrically "Falling" is fundamentally about when either an individual or a collective society doesn't choose to create a sustainable harmonious life for all living beings. "Falling" is another way of expressing the failure of how these choices impact all of us.

It was scheduled for release on 9/15/2022 in allegiance with the UN's International Day of Democracy.

Falling

by Mariana Tirsa (c.2016)

 

It’s a long time from Ancient Rome

Our castles have begun to crumble

Child of the American dream

Now I’m saddled like a mule on a hitchen’ team



Oohh, Oohh, Oohh

So many dreams falling to the ground

So many dreams burnt and brown

Oohh, Oohh, Oohh

So many dreams falling to the ground

So many dreams in the lost and found

Oohh Oohh Oohh

 

It’s a waste of our rights

The plenty hoarded by the few

Ever expanding pursuit

Now we’re beggars, debtors, and fools

 

Oohh, Oohh, Oohh

So many dreams falling to the ground

So many dreams burnt and brown

 

Gotta go to work

House, car,  family, body

Gotta get to bed

Wake up and start again

Gotta pay the bills 

two jobs for the baby

Gotta tend the day

What it brings and what it takes

 

Oohh

So many dreams falling to the ground

So many dreams burnt and brown

So many dreams falling to the ground

So many dreams in the lost and found

Oohh Oohh Oohh

  • Did you know the average cost to professionally record and market just one song is $5000 (not counting the many hours of writing and rehearsing)?
  • Did you know that 70% of indie musicians make less than $12,000 a year (if any) from their music?
  • It takes 3,000,000 streams needed annually to generate about $12,000 (most indie artists are streamed between 100 to 30,000 annual streams)
  • The financial instability for musicians is attributed to the 73 percent of independent music makers who experience symptoms of mental illness
