about

Basic tracks recorded at Ear Candle Productions in 2008. Lyrics gleaned from brainstorm notes written collectively some time between 2008 and 2010. Song completed in 2017.

lyrics

The moving finger shakes and jumps
Its spectacles to perform
And what it's writing, it won't tell
It just wants to stay warm

It goes about its telling
With the most emphatic lines
The bells and whistles it seems to jive to
Are way beyond my time

I wrapped that finger up in ice
And watched it throb and swell
And rode out to the caves and moaned
"I've found a new place to dwell."

I walked the road and learned the code
I opened up the bag
I let the shocks out of the box
I did not come to brag

A lonesome freak more bright than most
So brilliant and alone
I found myself loving myself
And started to build my home...my own home.

I'll let you come and visit
If you show up with respect
But please don't blame the mirror
If you don't like what it reflects.

It's good to be home
It's good to be home
Ain't nobody brings me water like you do.
Good night.
