RK: I have a project for you. I'll give you a song title and you write the song. You cannot write in first person and the song must revolve around the bass line. Oh and no choruses.
JW: Okay - but you have to sing on it.
RK: Make this part of the 'Heart of Darkness' project.
JW: That's too many rules. I think I already broke a couple.
RK: Use a ukelele instead of a guitar.
JW: I don't have a ukelele.
RK: ...and reference via imagery an early Black Flag record. And ghosts. There should be ghosts.
JW: Pass the Marley.


Falling into all of this
Throwing it down
Fingers splayed
Clutching the mist
Nothing to grasp
Inhaling the dust of the
Centuries, I’ve found
An accidental history

Echo the shattered glass
Relinquish the fist
Vanquish the fear
Savor the pain
Breaking the mirror
Push away from the side
Ghosts of the land, they are
Useless as pride
And they're buried in sand
Step up to awaken the mystery
Of this accidental history

Helpless and headlong
A need strong as lust
Buried in whispers, I
Swallow the hush
A dying barb of
Sacrificial devotion
This series of scenes
Spurred into motion
Canopied like the moon
Silhouetted branches of trees
