Released in the fall of 1996, when Moses Guest was but a trio, “Geniality of Morality” symbolizes the freshness of music being born. With a handful of orginal material, Graham Guest leads a stripped down rhythm section and delivers a powerful and sometimes personal account of life’s fleeting moments.

Lyrics

Under The Stairs

You were gradually walking, passing me by
When I laid my hand in the shadow crossing your eye
You turned and you turned in a circle, you turned upside-down
And all of those dreams, they spilled out of your head to the ground

‘Cause I would give
The blood from my lips
The skin off my back
The wind in my head
To get you over here

I am breathing the dreams that shake from your head
And I speak to you when we’re sleeping under the stairs
I’d walk for a mile like a camel under the sun
And I’d carry my heart like a mountain out on the run

‘Cause I would give
The blood from my lips
The skin off my back
The wind in my head
To get you over here

Under The Stairs

You were gradually walking, passing me by
When I laid my hand in the shadow crossing your eye
You turned and you turned in a circle, you turned upside-down
And all of those dreams, they spilled out of your head to the ground

‘Cause I would give
The blood from my lips
The skin off my back
The wind in my head
To get you over here

I am breathing the dreams that shake from your head
And I speak to you when we’re sleeping under the stairs
I’d walk for a mile like a camel under the sun
And I’d carry my heart like a mountain out on the run

‘Cause I would give
The blood from my lips
The skin off my back
The wind in my head
To get you over here
