about

The Call is a song written by Gregory Fletcher for Moira Smiley + VOCO from their upcoming album In Our Voices.

The Call brilliantly employs vocal drones, loops, audible breaths, body percussion, and searing solo lines to remind us of the tenderness of our humanity. It calls us away from the inherited instinct to ‘other’. It asks us to heed all that we share as humans on this single, finite planet and to act against the destructive behaviors and systems that affect us all.

Sheet music for choirs and vocal groups is available at www.moirasmiley.com

lyrics

One foot after the other. Each step part of the Mother Earth
Our feet, one and the same, sisters by a different name.

Two eyes help me to notice it's true our worldview's out of focus
We divide ourselves, yet don't understand what it means to be man.

You and I will find the call.
In its arms, embracing all, you and I will find the call.

Don't we see humanity is drifting and fading?
Each passing day more out of reach. What are we waiting for?

Blind to all, we are at our core.
The love of one can end this war.

You and I will find the call.
In its arms, embracing all, you and I will find the call.
