The song captures the story of ancient wisdom, coming from the consciousness of the whale as it speaks about Gaia and the journey of Evolution.

There is a mystery and magic when you connect to the cetaceans, you immediately feel the presence of a being that feels alien, not of this world and yet they are deeply connected with this world and to humanity. It is said that they are the record keepers of all human experience. If that is true, then they are woven into our fate and the destiny of our planet, so it is not surprising that they come to the foreground as our world struggles to find a viable path.

All the time we were making the film, Merrilee, the co-producer was talking about the need for a song to bring everything together in an accessible way. I found here conviction frightening. I have always had a whisper in my heart about writing music, but could only feel an avalanche of inadequacy at the real-time thought of actually putting words down on paper.

But this is where the magic of whale consciousness comes to the foreground. In the vibe of the whale, I slowly but some lines together, often thoughts and ideas that had been hovering around during the making of the film. I set myself the goal to write it by the end of a particular week and just put those ideas down on paper and went back the next day to actually write the song and realized most of the lyrics were there staring at me on the page.

I shared this with Nyck and he worked his magic for the music. The synchronicity of Piper being available and her match for the song was wonderful, and from start to finish, it was written and recorded in two weeks.

The Lyrics

The wind blows your name.
You know you’re not the same.
A whisper in your heart,
The end knows the start.
In a tale from the whale.
The signs are all around.
In a tale from the whale.
Ancient knowledge found

The wheel learns, the song returns, the birds cry for change
The hidden seed, lasting tree, love remains
This is fire, this is Gaia, let go the chains
This is Gaia, heart’s desire, let go the pain

In a tale from the whale
In a tale from the whale

Meet us in the timeless place,
stand on sacred ground
Dreaming through the song lines,
There is silence ,silence in the sound
In a tale from the whale,
the signs are all around
In a tale from the whale
Ancient knowledge found

The wheel learns, the song returns, the birds cry for change
The hidden tree, for all to see, love remains
This is water, earth daughter let go the shame.
This is fire, this is Gaia
This is whale, with a tale,
It’s time for life

In a tale
In a tale from the whale
