lyrics

This song started when Ryan sent me an iPhone recording of him playing two notes over and over again on his new Cathedral pedal. As soon as I heard it the song in its form here was completely envisioned. If you listen closely in the beginning (after the Frankenstein sound clip) you can hear some sick whale noises we made with my guitar. Thanks Clinton!

-------------------

TC: Not things learned so much as things remembered.
VF: Trace memories in the brain, perhaps.
TC: Did you ever consider the consequences of your actions? You gave me life, and then you left me to die. Who am I?
VF: You…? I don’t know.
TC: And you think that I am evil.
VF: What can I do?
– Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein (1994)

I have felt struggle, but who hasn’t felt it. I’ve been so selfish. I’ve let this be about myself. Like a scourge, I feel the chill now creeping from my toes into my knees. I am physically weak, emotionally drained. All I hear is the trees and mountains are all I will see. Everyone’s gone. Everyone’s left me. It is here I will perish- on this lake of frozen memories.

If a tree fell in the wilderness and there was no one there to see or hear it, did it make a noise? Did it even fall at all? I will never fall. I will never fall.
