about

This song is a response to, among other things, the work of Patti Trimble and Joanna Newsom.

lyrics

Day came dawn red
I went over the edge of the Earth
At ten thousand feet I walked up her breast
Under my pretense a quick violent growl

I was surrounded by the desolate cirque
Full moon rising over the edge of the Earth
I'd just crawled up from the fire pits
Come to suck water from earth's tit

I sat on a rock above the lake
Your words came to me, an echo, a mistake
A jest not kidding but stretching me to stand
Saying rise quick flame and be a man

You must change your life
There is nothing to hold onto

I'll never know you, you did not write for me
But how did you know my terrible secrets?
I cannot say what I owe your words
Woman I'll say you open doors

You must change your life
There is nothing to hold onto

Wolf spider now is long gone
Ferret sleek since I've gone long
