Some sins are here to stay. All the others wash away in the rain. In the end, they only cause you pain if you believe that old-fashioned refrain. You must let the tree fall if you want us to hear what you're sayin'. Just ignore the clouds around you because it's all in your brain. The birds have told me secrets. The winds have told me tales. I've learned the blackest magic from gray squirrels and old snails. I've disrenewed leafs and argued with old logs. I've come out of the closet and come in from the fog. You must let the tree fall and let yourself touch the ground again. You will fall and you will fumble but you will just get up and walk again.

Papatate 01:23
An old man with his old ways watches the TV 24 hours for 30 years. On the couch, he permanently sleeps. He's a coward. He's a Catholic and he hasn't been to church in years but he still sends them money so they keep him in their prayers. He used to take the taxi two blocks to the liquor store. Since they stopped his drinking, he don't go out any more. And he stands up and he pisses in a jug kept on the floor missing those Russian spirits that once helped him out the door.

about

An earlier version of this with unedited and alternate tracks was uploaded in the summer of 2019. This is the first "official" version, as retail-ready as a lofi recording can be.

In memoriam: Honour Hero Havoc. I only just found out tonight through local gossip that she passed away days before I coincidentally picked up the acoustic for the first time in a while. The sixth sense again.

Sadly, I'm not surprised as she was a genuine southern blues musician who lived the part with a well-known fondness for Grand Marnier. In downtown Salem, where I drank with her more than once when I was off the wagon, she was the real deal in a hipster scene full of packed decks.

Namahalo, Honour.
Boom.
