So Swiftly the Sun Sets in the Sky


“Disillusioned words like bullets bark
As human gods aim for their mark
Make everything from toy guns that spark
To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It’s easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred”

– Bob Dylan Read more…

“While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole
That he’s in”

“Fat man lookin’ in a blade of steel
Thin man lookin’ at his last meal
Hollow man lookin’ in a cotton field
For dignity

Wise man lookin’ in a blade of grass
Young man lookin’ in the shadows that pass
Poor man lookin’ through painted glass
For dignity”

– Bob Dylan,
from Dignity Read more…

Electrified the traditional
And had it out on Highway 61.

There’s no reason to feel downhearted.
There’s music in the wheels
There to be found.”

Little snapshots
Made from breath and from bone
And out on the darkling plain alone
They light up the sky”

You can look at it and weep
Few things you find are worthwhile
And though I don’t ask for much
No material things to touch

Easy to Slip

“It’s so easy to slip
It’s so easy to fall
And let your memory drift
And do nothin’ at all
All the love that you missed
All the people that you can’t recall
Do they really exist at all”

“I ain’t never been to Vegas but I gambled up my life
Building newsprint boats I race to sewer mains
Was trying to find me something but I wasn’t sure just what
Funny how they say that some things never change

Oh my sweet Carolina
What compels me to go
Oh my sweet disposition
May you one day carry me home”

– Ryan Adams, from Oh My Sweet Carolina Read more…
