I wrote this song when I was feeling a little bit sad. It was really strange cuz, like, I noticed a while ago that all the crows in my neighborhood were missing. So, I stuck a thing about the crows missing in the song. Yesiree.

I got this song from a dream; well, I got the first verse/chorus thingy from the dream, anyway. The picture is the structure thingy I saw when I was in the dream. The song was supposedly about Native American people who were trying to be British, and somehow they were dying. The song was about them dying. The structure thingy was involved in the whole process of them trying to be British and dying, but I don't remember how. It's sort of like I sort of know what the song's about but I sort of don't at the same time cuz that surrealistic dream-language tends to be sort of loose and floppy, meaning-wise.

Oh, dude, it's been a while since I've done a new song. I've been so busy workin' on my nice li'l graphic novel that I ain't been doin' much, music-wise. But here's a new one. It took me something like 9 months to write it. Oh, whoah, that's a gestational period. How strange.
I came up with the idear when I was driving on the 880 and found that I didn't want to be run over by the very big trucks on it. The song is abstract-ish, though, so it's subject to all kinds of interpretation and all that.

Here's a wee excerpt of a song that shows up in Volume 1 of my graphic novel, oh yeah. I haven't published it yet, but I wanted people to hear what the song sounds like, cuz when the characters sing it, you only just see the words, and you don't hear what the melody is like. The rest o' this song ain't ready for prime-time yet, so I just posted a li'l snippet of it.
'Course the part that the characters sing is kind of quiet in this recording, so you sort of have to listen for it. If you've read far enough in the novel, yes, the Timmy and Bobby in this song are the same people as the characters that show up toward the end of Volume 1.
