Neil Young Tweets Yet Another Message From "The Visitor": #4

Neil Young has tweeted yet another message from "The Visitor".

The latest tweet from "The Visitor" is:

I was the ocean
Washed up here
I'm your emotion
I'm your fresh beer

- The Visitor

The Visitor's latest message accompanies the NEW VIDEO: "Hitchhiker" by Neil Young (Black Balloon version) .

So what might Neil be up to with these tweets and references to the mysterious "The Visitor"? (See links below for previous tweets from "The Visitor".)

As you may recall, "The Visitor" was referenced during a track by track commentary on his new album 'Hitchhiker' which was live streamed from a radio station in Telluride, CO. (See TRANSCRIPT: Neil Young's Track by Track Commentary on New Album 'Hitchhiker').

So who might "The Visitor" be? There are many out there with thoughts on who "The Visitor" might be and their significance.

Some have speculated "The Visitor" is the title of Neil Young's next album recorded with the band Promise of the REAL. Others think "The Visitor" refers to upcoming events, BIG shifts or possibly "change" or "The Truth". Maybe "full disclosure" and "transparency"? Or maybe "awareness" and "consciousness"?

Maybe the "The Visitor" is Neil's muse returning with creative musical ideas?

Everyone has their favorite theories. As for us? See discussion on Neil Young Tweets Another Message From "The Visitor".

Still perplexed? Well consider that "The Visitor" doesn't have a Twitter account. Or Internet access. Still wondering? Then check links below. As always, use disCERNment.

“I'm not present I'm a drug that makes you dream
I'm an aerostar I'm a cutlass supreme
In the wrong lane trying to turn against the flow
I'm the ocean I'm the giant undertow ”

~~ I'm The Ocean

Fresh beer? Stop, Neil. Please put more effort into your lyrics. This is dreadful. Briggs is the last person to tell Neil no on anything and it shows.

Recent animated music videos for Peace Trail, My Pledge, Powderfinger, and now, Hitchhiker are very good. Recent tweets, on the other hand, have not been good.

That talk of sit calmly waiting for the trey to come out of its hole, I’m not sure, but I think first time
I heard Neil make that picture of songwriting is way back. Maybe in the nineties, back in the time when
you still had respect for him. I guess, if he wrote lyric today that goes, “Im gonna ride my Llama, from Peru
to Texarkana, I’m gonna ride it good, in my own neighborhood”, you disrespect gang of vol 2 archivesuckers would
come up with some funny sarcastic lines about it. Ok, I am your fresh beer, does not look good on print, but
I still understand what that means, more than I understand what you are up to. You do not sound like a fresh beer, that is for sure.

Re: the nice animal-friendly comment about rabbits (as a vegetarian, I approve): I see where he's coming from, but the point is that songs (or movies, or poems, or novels, or paintings) aren't rabbits. They are things you actually have to work hard to build, rather than waiting around for inspiration to strike.

Yes, it's nice when inspiration comes along and does the work for you. But so many of Neil's best records have been the ones where he dug in deep and persisted with something that didn't necessarily fall into his lap effortlessly. In fact, it is from that persistence and gritty determined energy where much of the magic is born.

I also very much agree with some of The Young Oslo Neil's comment above, which is that you can't appreciate all song lyrics written on the page, in seperation from their music. Songs are designed to be heard; it's how the lyrics work in the context of a song that is important. To judge them in isolation from this is akin to determining the life expectancy of a fish after it has been taken out of it's pond.

That's not to say songs CAN'T be appreciated in written form: some of Neil's best lyrics are just as rewarding to read on the page as they are to listen to. But songs aren't poems, and if a lyric snippet doesn't seem particularly impressive in isolation, I don't think that is any cause for concern.

Neil is too good for Twitter.
Don't think that is the right medium for him.
The lyrics may be great inside a song but not as a tweet.

Is Bob Dylan tweeting? I hope not.

If I could hold on to just one thought long enough to know, why my beer is so damn fresh and the conversation is slow...
Makes we long for more Muse-driven Neil....
