swarbles; Relish with a capital R.
this week’s elephant 6 townhall hoursong is up! this week’s theme was summer, and to pay tribute to ray bradbury, i pulled the lyrics for this song out of dandelion wine, which i read for the first time last year (and will be reading again shortly) and it surpassed fahrenheit 451 as my favourite bradbury book (andso both fahrenheit 451 and dandelion wine and are amongst my favourite books i’ve ever read).
the song is available to download via cllct. all the songs are available to download on mediafire as well. and don’t forget, if you enjoy this song, you should follow my musical endeavors on farcebook, which i am going to start using more actively real soon.
and everyone’s alive,
but what’s the use
when they’re more alive than me?
the first thing you learn in life is you’re a fool,
and the last thing you learn in life is you’re the same fool.
a crazy creature with a head full of carnival spangles.
and time is so strange
and life is twice as strange;
the cogs miss,
the wheels turn.
and lives interlace too early,
or too late.
all i know is i feel good going to bed nights.
that’s a happy ending once a day.
but what makes the night?
shadows crawling out under from five billion trees.
