I Am Progress (feat Deuce Eclipse & The Grouch) by Prozack Turner
This song is so special to me. I wrote my verse in a very painful time of my life. I had recently been separated from my wife, had moved out of my home and was in such a dark place that I felt I couldn’t move on. I was living in a new state with no real support system or circle of friends nearby. It was the worst depression that I had ever experienced in my life and I was feeling isolated, alone and confused. During this time, I received the terrible news that my friend Zumbi ,(of Zion I )had been taken from us, killed. He was a beacon of light to myself and so many others, and an instrumental part of my life. We had been on many tours together and I had met my wife back in 2006 while on tour with Zion I and Deuce Eclipse. I was heartbroken with the news of his passing. I spoke with Deuce Eclipse on the phone and he was devastated as well. There was a memorial out in California where his friends and family got together (including The Grouch and Deuce Eclipse) to celebrate his life. I couldn’t believe that Zumbi was gone and that his three children were now left fatherless. I was crushed. My loneliness would regularly take me down to the beach, where I attempt to meditate and shake off the blues, but more often times I would sulk. I was in bad shape. I had to look inward.
As I sat there one day, I thought of my beautiful children, the vastness of the sea, my health, my sight, the love that I was so fortunate to have experienced with my ex,I began to focus on the gifts in my life. I had my life! I called up Deuce Eclipse and Grouch and had some deep conversations about life, love,pain and gratitude, and how wonderful it all is, pain and everything.Instead of focusing on what lacked, I began to focus on abundance. I recorded my verse and sent it out to the both of them, and “I Am Progress” was born. This is a song about survival, growth and focusing on all the beautiful that we all have, even in tough times. This song is for you.
