“April King” – by Snazz Mammoth

A 2-part set of songs by my solo cello-rock-electronica project –

 

we were gone

 

looking back on our regrets

playback on an old cassette

you will be blamed

for taking off too soon

waking up the neighborhood

piling in the backseat

hit the gas and

off we go

 

we’re gone

 

we were gone

none of us were wrong

 

another bridge is calling

the playing field has been

all leveled out

 

we know we’ve been untrue

never wanted you to be disappointed

 

we’ll drive on

and on

and further

 

 

A Thousand Different Sighs

 

We have been gone so long

the pull’s too strong

out here

open road

 

We don’t know when

when we’ll be

be back home again

 

We sigh

a thousand different sighs

 

We every stop we make

our mind does wake

Under open sky

 

We wish we knew

Knew when we’d

We’d be back again

 

We sigh

a thousand different sighs

Streets, architecture, and people. Ruined places. History. Frozen moments. Great love for imagines wrought by beautiful mystery of film and vintage cheapy cameras. WRITING The vague, ephemeral. The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep.
