about

M Iafrate (& The Priesthood) Wheeling, West Virginia

Michael Iafrate's contemplative song-explorations are enriched by his training as a theologian—asking more questions than providing answers, commingling the worlds of flesh and spirit, and holding received images and traditions up to the light in respect, playfulness, and negation. RIYL Jason Molina, Neil Young, classic R.E.M., Elliott Smith, Gillian Welch, Townes Van Zandt, and Elephant Micah. ... more

Track Name: St. Blaise
Welcome home
welcome back to where you're from
You know I'm not fooling anyone
I'm sold, but I can't deify anyone
'cause we're all broke
but we can bless each other's throats,
licking life into dry bones,
grace growing in the holes of our imperfect homes

Don't give your heart to what won't satisfy your heart
What satisfies my heart won't leave me in the dark
But now I'm out in the light, all things new in morning's sight
Like fingers in the soil, you brought the cold earth to life

With nothing more withheld,
we are pulled out of ourselves
Unneeded tapers begin to melt,
blessing each other back to health
Some say this world is sick
and that's why we all need a partner in it
but one can choose to see good and gift
It just depends on where and with whom you sit

Don't give your heart to what won't satisfy your heart
What satisfies my heart won't leave me in the dark
But now I'm out in the light, all things new in morning's sight
Like fingers in the soil, you brought the cold earth to life
