Alabaster is a pale stone most oft used for elegant indoor sculptures/ornaments in both ancient and current times.
Black Alabaster is the more rare form of the mineral. The black form is found in only three veins in planet earth. (Oklahoma, Italy, China)
It was carved into stone since ancient times that we would write our own legacy. We are Black Alabaster.

"I was raised to make things happen, rather than cry about things I didn't like. Everything I heard from the adults in my life was along the lines of 'pull up your britches and go get it done.' Period. My father had strokes when I was around nine or 10. He hasn't fully recovered since then, and at an early age I had to sack up and learn a lot on the fly, including supporting my mother. It definitely froze me up though, especially when I saw it happen in the hallway as a kid. I wanted 'Tears of Legend' to have that same chilling feeling that I felt that day. But I also wanted to give the record a sense of triumph, because that's what we all need in times of crisis. Be frozen still at first, then make something happen. It's a larger-than-life story of triumph, hence the hook beginning with 'are there sands where tears of legends flow?' If I'm not crying, then where do the tears go?
It fits the THRILL album storyline. You'll see later. "

I wasn’t joking. Get your headphones and put them in to fully experience the trip.

" Its a proclamation. "Bleeding Tree" the song is how we are all trees and me wanting to see more of us living in more fertile soils. Im tired of seeing people get chopped down. Tired of seeing that, lets put more trees in the breeze instead, I mean that figuratively and literally. But yea, Its a song out of frustration with the system and how its been strategically crafted to make it easier for certain groups of people to fail. Just hella corruption around us. Plant the seeds and foster growth. Bleeding Tree is a concept that can mean either life or death depending how you learn about it. There's a story by James Hurst called "The Scarlet Ibis" where it represents both. Theres an actual tree in Africa called the Kiaat or Bloodwood Tree that leaks red sap when its cut or the bark is bruised. This sap leaks, hardens on itself and "heals" the incision the same way our body does with scabs. There are spiritual meanings people attribute to this tree as well but thats for another time.

No denying that Xavier & the thrill is an Energy God. Paired with Cartier Jones, they set the mood just right on "No Problem". This track is key to the Countdown 2 Midnight experience. An absolute slapper that true heads and young turn up kids can get down with. What an experience. A true reminder that if y'all wasn't up on @xavierandthethrill and @cartierjones y'all need to get on it fast!
