Higgledy Piggledy


The world it is a frightening place
Gettin' scarier by the second
Hate is blown' up all around
More than anyone could have reckoned
Who can understand it, yeah
Don't wanna participate
Rather live in my tiny bubble of love
Than to live in a world of hate

Promise


You talk like a politician
Or a guy who sells used cars
Or a guy who says he doesn't want your money
Or a guy who tells stories in bars
You sound oh so confident
Like you really believe what you say
Where's the truth
Where's the lie
What does it matter anyway

Eliot Wilder's America


We drank ourselves sick with lust
We spit into the brown southern night
We made a pact sealed with a prick
Somehow that black blood felt so right

Barbaric Poems


The day it veers toward twilight
But it's not like you could tell
Snow's crunching under sneakers
In the distance rings a bell
A crow is winging overhead
Hello and farewell

Elsewhere


They fuck you up, your mum and dad
They may not mean to, but they do
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you

Witness


The key to life
Or so I've found
Is being wide awake and at the ready
Pulling your head
Out of your ass
So your vision's clear
And your hands are steady

L'Avventura


And what happened to us
Is what happens to everyone
Sooner or later
And later is sooner than we think

Diary of a Plague Year


We think we're at our peak
We look at how high we can reach
But like Sisyphus
We go a-tumbling down
We go to church
And we pray for our souls to be saved
The water's rising
And we're scared we'll drown
Can you see Him
God is sleeping

On an unrelated note, check out the 20th Anniversary Edition of DJ Shadow's "Endtroducing." It features lots of bonuses, including liner notes by yours truly.

This Lonesome Road


Sometimes you're lucky
Through all your hard work
Sometimes you're not
And you go berserk
You hope for the best
But the weary don't rest

Mercy


The quality of mercy is not strained
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath
It is twice blest
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes

Songs for a Blue Girl


One day you are on top of the world. You are young, you are strong, you are beautiful. But then, slowly and almost imperceptively, your youth fades, your strength slackens and the person you see in the mirror no longer glows the way it once did. "Where did your long hair go / Where is the girl I used to know," Brian Wilson sang, mournfully. Eventually, life plays a cruel trick on us: just when we think we've got the world by the tail, it all gets taken away. No one is exempted, no one is immune.

Sincerely, Samantha Fuller


Before she passed away late last year, Samantha and I managed to lay down dozens of vocal tracks that I have now assembled into an album that, hopefully, pays tribute to her unique talent. Here, then, is the first - and last - Samantha Fuller record. Rest in peace, Sam.
