about

It started as a letter to my mom written on New Year's day 2009 while siting on a freezing cold rock on the Appalachian Trail looking out over leafless trees and farmland. I felt a sickening loneliness that stuck with me for quite sometime. This song was my attempt to cure that loneliness.

lyrics

To all the bronze stars in the invisible air
The stench of the lonely everywhere
To the blood banks of the energies
And the wild green leaves of the seas

Explain this again to me how
It doesn't seem what is can be
But lives in every heart, in every eyeball, every soul
From the guts of you and me

Aren't we tearing it all down?
I mean, shouldn't we?
From the sewer signs in town
To the wrath we'll never come to see

Because the foaming wild leper seeks
The same use for his hungry teeth
And don't we all wish to feast
From the same cup of death dark tea?

I was sorry right then
Because right then I was wrong
And I was a man
When I was not hungry
