Song Description

This song is a contemplation on death and life and existence. It covers a heavy subject--mortality--- but does not come across as dark or macabre. It sounds hopeful,poignant, and moving. This is a medium tempo featuring a string section, banjo intro, and a vibraphone and a pretty female lead vocal as well as layers of vocal harmonies on the chorus. It has a bit of a country vibe (think Flying Burrito Brothers or Neko Case) mixed with a nice indie folk vibe with the vibraphone and cello features.

Lyrics

Out on the shores of Lake Erie and I know we all will die and be swept out along with the slurry. How the dark winds sigh.

I met a dog, he stole my song and walked into the light. I met a child, so sleek and wild, but it was not to be mind

Out on the shores of Lake Erie and I know we all will die and be swept out along with the slurry. How the dark winds sigh.

I sought an urn in which to burn the stunning Lorelei. I held my breath, I wished it so, but I could not let it go

Out in the dark and the dead of night, I dug a hole for to leave behind, but by the morning's piercing rays show that some things, though buried, do not decay

Out on the shores of Lake Erie and I know we all will die and be swept out along with the slurry. How the dark winds sigh.
