Monks on Main Street [Single]

about

With the power of Dr. Martin Luther King's articulate opening invocation, Cornflower’s new single "Monks on Main Street" drops into your ear drums with a pulsating funk anthem to the times we live in. It is a call-to-action to “people of goodwill” to "bring your presence into the world" and become consciously active through our breath and awareness.

“Monks on Main Street” is recorded using Cornflower's all-vocal arrangements by producer Bret Levick. With a twist of R&B vocalizing within the multi-part harmonies of the chorus and a swinging southern-fried funk instrumentation, it’s potent lyricism calls the listener to their power with each passing verse that crescendos with its chill-bump inducing final chorus.

The intention of the song is to inspire those who hear it, to realize that they have the power to transform themselves and their world through their direct Presence. The song focuses on the importance of the individual’s role in assisting the creation of a more conscious, harmonious and peaceful world, based on equal rights and equality for all. It encourages the listener to; stand up, show up and engage the important issues occurring on a personal, local, state, national and global level from a place of conscious breath, intention and peaceful action.

lyrics

"And I submit that nothing will be done until people of goodwill put their bodies and their souls in motion. And it will be the kind of soul force brought into being as a result of this confrontation that I believe will make the difference.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.

[Chorus].
Monks on Main Street x 4

[Verse 1]
Too many people getting stuck in the Symbolism...
It is now time for us to live the wisdom...
So let's get into the streets, to be and to breathe...
And live our purpose by fulfilling our destiny...

[Chorus]
Monks on Main Street x 4

[Verse 2]
Too many people singing to the same isms & schisms
Now is our time to harmonize with our hearts prism
Let's take a breath, ground down into our body's flow
And become present to the magic of our OneSoul

[Chorus]
Monks on Main Street x 4

[Solo].

[Outro Verse]
Come on down from your mountain sanctuary
It's Time to fulfill your dharmic destiny
Bring your presence into the world
Boys and girls we are the ones we have been waiting for…

[Final Chorus]
Monks on Main Street, Come on down…
Monks on Main Street, Come on down…down down down down
Monks on Main Street, Come on down…
Monks on Main Street, Come on down…
Monks on Main Street, Come on down… ooh ooh ooh
Monks on Main Street, Come on down… down down down down
Monks on Main Street, Come on down… ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Monks on Main Street.
