about

"And whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I kept no pleasure from my heart, for my heart found pleasure in all my toil. Then I considered all my hands had done and the toil I had expended doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after the wind." (Ecclesiastes 2:10-11)

Music co-written with John Drury

lyrics

E c# f# B
 
E c# f# B g# c# f# B
 
look out now, you said everything was alright
stand up sit down walk out the fright
drop your hands give in to the plight
look out now, you said everything was alright
 
we're so weak, who needs might makes right?
all they neeed to do is to make something, right?
we're drowing, drowing, drowning, with land in sight
we're so weak, who needs might makes right?
 
 
E      c#    g# 
nothing is special anymore
      A              B        [  E           EBA] – 1st time only
and everyone over consumes\\        repeat
 
 
we ran a race but fell off to the side
streetsweepers came erased all the lines
ghost trains filling up in the night
we ran a race but fell off to the side
 
we're so noble and the land provides
lost in a fog can't see the signs
cut a drift no mooring line
how many metaphors can i combine?
 
nothing is special anymore
and everyone overconsumes
 
solo: E c# f# B g# c# f# B…
 
E      c#    g#                       AAAA B…
nothing is special anymore
