Building

cathedral

STÄSJ built arches through time
and place, with body and mind,
on past in present. and now
it echoes, we sound, we voice.
in our carnal CATHEDRALS,
we rejoice.

cathedral

STÄSJ built arches through
time and place,
with body and mind,
on past in present.
and now it echoes
we sound, we voice.
in our carnal CATHEDRAL,
we rejoice.

we fall, we feel, we wonder
we ruin, we heal, we love
we shift, we wait, we ask
we burn, we care, we save
we exist, we will, we are

bodies age, minds expand,
societies catch fever.
STÄSJ whispers poetry,
sweet sounds seep into
beats, build to thunder.
come closer, lest we crumble.

Stäsj

Stäsj

STÄSJ spent two and a half years
building this CATHEDRAL from the ground up.
building health, building home, building love, building future.
hope was sculpted into pillars and arches,
trust was soldered into stained glass windows,
stories bursting with colour, radiant, ephemeral.
an ode to resiliency wrapped in soft, soft skin.

BUILDING A CATHEDRAL
is STÄSJ’S expressive musical statement
with poetic lyrics and ever-expanding beats.
whispered words of love, loss and wonder
are paired with contemporary reflections
on the HUMAN CONDITION, the never-ending
quest for growth and the unavoidable
need for change.

this new album is STÄSJ’S call to stage
for CATHEDRAL builders, people with an endless
stash of stamina, souls with a deep breath.
connectors that are ready to untangle the destructive
and entangle the sustainable, the regenerative.
this album is a rock opera covered in moss and lichen.
it is a hypnotizing hymn dedicated to
the gods and goddesses within and around us.
it is a beat for all of us URTLINGS
to march toward our future to.
