about

I've been thinking about this one as my David Byrne song. It was written up on Orcas Island in the San Juans, snowed in for the better part of a week. It was the day after my birthday and the weather broke. The chorus melody came first and then the drony-bounce and then the tooth-spitting verse lyrics came tumbling out. As a band, we pushed ourselves hard this record toward rhythm and groove, and this is a happy example of what came out the other side. Ripping. I should say, when we got the mix back from Fridmann, I was floored. He so understood the song and nailed the intention. It sounds like us as battleships.

lyrics

I can stand after a year and fall after a day
If a man calls me a coward, boy, I’ll kick his teeth in in my mind

I’m soaked in mud my vision’s dim
I can’t get clean I can’t dry out
If worry was a ladder I’d be home safe with you

I have drunk out in the noise and smoked in quiet rooms
Is the ringing in my ears the ever present voice of love
Get out of my head old man, I’ve growl enough on my own
Our desperation isn’t beautiful but here it is so let’s say it is

Click-clack my pet there is another way
as she does the dishes
These interstitial moments between building home and building bridge
