Tired Hands 03:23
bass drum skin won’t start to swing guitar string won’t start to sing snare drum skin won’t start to sting bass guitar won’t start to ring the evening gloom unfolds and in the biting cold recording microphones and amps give up the ghost vocal cords won’t start to swing singer’s voice won’t start to sing notebook page won’t start to fill melody won’t start to thrill the evening gloom unfolds and in the biting cold our voices’ bitter tones and lungs give up the ghost i don’t know where to begin the instruments are giving in my tired hands are withering i hear the demons closing in
Solace 05:12
in fall when the sunflowers bow their drowsy heads in dreams i hear a song a body never safe i hear you sing along i listen to the waves of sound drown in the night dissolving as you pause the piercing violins the growling cello drones they haunt me through the walls and windows of my home the cold and raging waves they wash from coast to coast they carry forth your words “don’t be sad to see me go” and when a star explodes its warm and blinding light suffuses us and glows forever in our bones
