Until the wind blows my ashes away… Song 76

Fifty mile-per-hour winds are a great environment to try to trim trees guys… way to be safe.

Anyway… a very windy day is causing havoc. The wind is blowing everything away as I float through another day, until my ashes are blown away too. Today’s song started as an idea for a funeral dirge sort of song. It quickly evolved into something different. Drums gave way to drum machines, pianos gave way to synths… but I couldn’t resist a super fuzzed out guitar solo… so there’s that.

Song 76: “Promise Me”

Promise me

The dead look in their eyes, tells me everything
The stillness of the night, agitates this beast
Oh, won’t you promise me

Until the wind blows my ashes away
I’ll just float along through another day unseen

I can watch the mighty fall every day
A pedestal is given then quickly pulled away
Oh don’t you see it’s just a game

Promise me, say you’ll remember

Until the wind blows my ashes away
I’ll just float along through another day unseen

Promise me, say you’ll remember
