about

I broke my hand in a bike accident. The next day, struggling to shower one handed, I thought about those guys coming back from the war for whom losing a hand or arm isn't a temporary inconvenience. And wrote and played this song for them.

lyrics

Jesus
At the Sea of Galilee
Never saw the Atlantic
Never saw the Pacific
Never had that vast ocean
Storming before him
And for all of his healing
Of the things that are broken
The scale too small
The suffering unspoken
And it was all too large
And beyond him

Even Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
All our prayers, token
Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
And everything’s broken

Jesus
In the Garden of Gethsemane
Never saw the Congo
Never saw those jungles
Never saw that abyss
Bloody before him
And for all his pacing
Of the path we were taking
In that garden doubting
In that garden free
He couldn’t see the forest
For the trees

Even Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
Our prayers are token
Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
And everything’s broken

Jesus
On the cross
Never saw the Andes
Never saw the Rockies
Never saw those summits
Soaring before him
And for all his guidance
And his sure devotion
Every stone will weather
Every mountain broken
Makes their way to the ocean

Even Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
All our prayers
Hoping
Jesus
Can’t fix everything
That is broken
And everything’s broken

about

VIC BONDI Seattle, Washington

I've been playing music for thirty-five years--since the beginnings of the American hardcore punk movement in the 1980s. This band camp site is where I make a variety of my non-band project experiments available--solo tracks; covers; movie soundtracks, etc. Most of it is not hardcore. For that, see the links below. ... more
