lyrics

My body is a circuit board
Every nerve on line
My body is a circuit board
Surges all the time

I ask what my bodies for
Answer comes seems true
Sweat love out of every pore
Collect love like dew

Some tomorrow morning I’ll be driving down the sky
The rain be rising off the road
Catching in the sunlight in clouds of holy smoke
Like some vision of hope

I’m gonna ferry that in my hold I’m gonna take it to the other side
Oh this terra inconsolable, what pretty tears she cries

Someone took the walls replaced it with the war
Someone took the winter long
Someone took the wheel and won’t tell me what for
Drove right off the embankment expecting me to thanks them

Caledonia called, I walked on through the wall
Caledonia called, spun around ‘til I fell
Feet first through the world I fell

Late one lazy afternoon the curlews and the sirens cut the gathering gloom
Dinners on the table quit complaining I am still one of the lucky few
I’m gonna sit on this here egg, I’m gonna hatch a little paradise
Dig a little dirt mine, build a little nest upon her weary thigh

Someone took the wolves, someone took the waves
Someone took the way I was
The taming of the land is the digging of the graves
Drove right off the embankment expecting me to thank them

Caledonia called, I walked on through the wall
Caledonia called, spun around ‘til I fell
Feet first through the world I fell

Slow now the fear of night will slip and disappear into the dying coals
Soft the glow under the ash of all the crashes, all the stories told, stories retold
Sweet the little piece of warmth to hold inside my hand until the morning breaks
Oh this terra uncontrollable, you’ll grow over even all my worst mistakes

Someone took the wish right out of the well
Someone took the whole damn aquifer
Sucking the world dry so I can have my fill
Drove right off the embankment, expecting me to thank them

Caledonia called, I walked on through the wall
Caledonia called, spun around ‘til I fell
Feet first through the world I fell

Your ghost is everywhere, you do not believe
But your ghost is everywhere, every red brick street

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
