Too much confusion today

April 17th, 2007

This song popped up on my playlist a little while ago, and finding the lyrics startlingly approriate to real-world events, I thought I’d share it.

I think it’s a lovely piece, and as far as I know it’s out of print (it appears on the Chords I’ve Known EP) so I’ll include the download link. Sparklehorse are one of my favorite artists, but I don’t have much to say above and beyond these lyrics.

Sparklehorse : The Hatchet Song

there’s too much confusion today
look in an eye and it’s sure to shy away
and he blew his brains out with a pistol they say
to cover his ass or make a point some way
meet me on lonely street
to stab me in the back you know she threw a hatchet
it buried in my chest when i turned to catch it
and my lucky days are stuck in quarantine
i thought i got some kind of warranty
meet me on lonely street

The design of this site is original but is based on the the work of various amazing artists of the past, especially that of Alphonse Mucha. I’ve also incorporated some of the work of Grandville, Edmund J. Sullivan, and Henry van de Velde. The fonts used for headings are Berlin Regular and Airplane (Maniackers Design).

I aim for valid Valid XHTML and CSS. Handcoding rocks; a thousand curses upon antiseptic web design. This site is glued together with WordPress. Complete sentences, proper punctuation, and good typography are also off the hook. And oh yeah, use Firefox.

Feeds are available for XML (entire website) or XML Harmonies (this section).
