about

[Preview track from upcoming album 'The Body You Ride Around In' coming out on Super Fan 99 Records in Summer 2015]

lyrics

The flicker of a thought pushed down inside
That gasps at the surface once in every while
Having nearly died
It was another life of mine

The car radio sings me into nostalgia’s grip
A time held dear only for the weight of time
Pressing down on it like some carbon trick
Where I spin the life I led into gold
My memory in alchemy’s hold

Dig down deep and you will find
The quotidian is rarefied
I spin the life I led into gold
My memory in alchemy’s hold

Here’s what I thought I learnt from the first time I thought I was in love
Oh I didn’t learn enough
By thirty five I shall have been dead a long time though I may still be alive
