Kravitz gently urges a wounded friend to put the past behind her and look to a brighter future on "Yesterday Is Gone (My Dear Kay)." He may not have answers, but he knows there’s something missing from his life as he yearns for a "Stillness of Heart" ("The things that were so sweet/No longer move my feet . . . I’m feeling incomplete"). Fame and material possessions are inconsequential compared to rekindling an old flame ("A Million Miles Away"). Fed up with poverty, sickness and strife, "God Save Us All" challenges listeners to make a positive impact on the world. Similarly, the Top-40 hit "Dig In" appeals for love, sharing, caring and turning to God when times get tough ("When the mountain is high/Just look up to the sky/Ask God to teach you/Then persevere with a smile"). The transparent "You 'ere in My Heart" admits to battling demons and temptation, but wants to "keep the Master’s plan" and emerge victorious. Fortunately, "Let’s Get High" speaks of getting high on love.
The phrase "I don’t give a d--n" appears on "Bank Robber Man."
This ex-husband of Cosby kid Lisa Bonet has made a career out of experimenting with diverse musical styles. Hard rock. Soul. Hip-hop. Retro rock sounds from the ’60s and early ’70s. Except for one careless profanity, the lyrics here are really solid. Some distinctly spiritual themes make Lenny all the more intriguing.
