On The Fall Line, Someone's Giving It All Back, Goin' Down

On The Fall Line

When I was a kid, I was into light reading like The Book of Revelation and Hal Lindsay's pop concordance The Late Great Planet Earth.

It was a matter of time before some song of mine would reflect an end of the world vibe. Though this could have as much to do with Randy Newman's "Burn On".

Someone's Giving It All Back

From water in flames and sundry apocalypse, we turn to the mystery of a world suddenly ours.

Goin' Down

Ah, that ever lovin' debt postmodernity (or life of any stripe) owes the dust beneath the dust beneath. Or, if that's too opaque or somber, I'll quote Futurama: "vaguely folkish alterna-rock."
