[to be sung in a British accent] Enlist all the banks To lift up all the miniscule skanks Like me, like me, like me I'd make all my songs ridiculous Just to make you smile and laugh just a little bit And that’s free, that’s free, that’s free But really I quite enjoy money Buys me lots of things I like that make me happy A simple dinner at a restaurant with friends A costume for Halloween, seeing a movie you recommend But who knows when we’ll be able to do those simple things again But I can see us on the horizon We’ll have fresh water to drink And good conversation Cup your hands now and take a sip Of all the time our love requires us to miss We’ll see, we’ll see each other soon Until then I’m at sea without any thumbs Feeling pretty dumb On my little raft, basking in the noonday sun My hair’s gone wild Hallucinating flying fish I’m all alone in this paradise And I really, really wish I could be, I could be with you my friend But I can see us on the horizon We’ll have fresh water to drink And good conversation Cup your hands now and take a sip Of all the time our love requires us to miss We’ll see, we’ll see each other soon

All E-Lone 03:54
All e-lone Failure to thrive I’m awake to all the wonders of my life If this illness weren’t killing I wouldn’t have this time Paisley fear Stainless steel dread Soup lines ‘round the block inside my head We’ll break our fast of friendship With bowls of breath instead Mystery! When I see you I stare Catalyst of meaning, hope, and prayer I respirate your darkness And possibility appear I respirate your darkness I respirate your darkness I respirate your darkness I respirate your darkness

about

I should have released these two tracks about 8 months ago when I wrote them. I was saving them for some imagined perfect release, a full album that would include the batch of songs I was going to record back in March 2020 before the pandemic changed those plans. I realized with a sick shock about two months ago that I’d made a mistake. I was reading an interview with a famous director who was talking about sacrifice. “Nobody talks about artist’s sacrificing anymore,” he said, or something like that. I had something like the inverse of an “aha” moment, maybe an “oh no” moment is what it was, but it did feel like an epiphany. I suddenly realized with horror that I’d been focused on strategizing and maximizing when I could have prioritized giving my music over fully to a greater service. If nothing else, music can help other humans feel emotions and digest the complex energies that flow through and around us all day long and through the night. By holding back when the songs were fresh I maybe missed the opportunity to provide some solace during a really rough time.

Now that the vaccines are rolling out, I hope it’s not too late, and that these songs will still serve a purpose in this world!

Thanks so much for listening :)
Ruth
