John Jacob Magistery : Diamond in a Cave

John Jacob Magistery performs the delightful “Diamond in a Cave”.

“Let me go out on the river/Let my body float/Over the rocks and fishes where no one goes/Let my hair out like sunshine/When you touch my face like I’m a woman/Know that I am finally home/Off in another world/Where flesh and bone don’t carry on/And don’t you leave yourself to save me/If you can’t save yourself and leave/If you can’t allow yourself to be there/When you turn away from me/Let me go out on the river Don’t tell me that it’s wet/I’ve been silent for many years/But there’s not much that I don’t get, get…” Indie-rock band John Jacob Magistery is a project by singer and songwriter Johnny Griffin. In 2014, the band released “Narcissism Unto Loneliness”, their first EP, along with their first single, “Greatest Story Ever”. Since then, the band has been a target of growing attention.
