This began as an idea at an Appalasia performance in October. The idea brewed and brewed and then burst out of nowhere, coming out very different than I had thought it would.

The chord progression was done on an autoharp to the percussion section, and then the main melody was performed on a mandolin, and then the bass line was added by my close friend Denny Glorioso, and finally I added the subtle singing saw to help create atmosphere.


Look at the lives I've taken. Listen to what I've done for you.

I can make this a song, but I’ll need your help.
Why correct anything when there is nothing wrong anyhow? The floor is too cold, and I am turning blue.

I’m flying by eight; at least your rainbow paper is in my window.

Where is everybody going?

We worry too much about how words sound, we never say what needs said.
I can see the days blurring into one.

And there is not a thing I can do.
