about

A self-fulfilling prophesy laid down in hand-worn cards. The scorched-fuse tedium of always remembering versus one's impossible attempt to ever forget. Whether you stand where the ocean thrashes against the crippled roots of the pines or in the city's spot-lit night streets. Where your own body is your enemy. Where the concrete holds the heat.

Track Name: Blind Pelican - Cholak's Revenge
You sink seven lances in the sand
but your fowl strut murmuring where they please
and there are foxes
and those foxes are you and me.

Where the ocean meets the stone,
keep your eyes open:
watch the shadows emerge from the pines
and know those shadows are you and me.

Overturn my cup.
Hang me by my knees.
Overturn me.
Track Name: Blind Pelican - Some Days, I Don't Want to Try
These memories are easy
to drink to a standstill
but it's these dreams and the feeling they leave
that ain't so easy to shake.

And I want this grave dust to blow away,
not because it's too much, but because it's become
not nearly enough.

You tell me that I'm not a specter
as you pass straight through me.
And you tell me that I'm not a spider
as you bat me with a broom.

I kneel in this changing water
and I wet my hands
and I wet my hair
and I wet my teeth
and I wet my eyes
and everything changes.
Yeah, everything but me.
I can never not be me.
Yeah, who might he be?
