A song about abandoned Japanese villages.


You’re gone for good now. Blow out the match, blow it to the north.
These ghosts you found just cruise around dead machines, so untether your bike and leave me to find your dead animals.

Spider webs cover the farms. He slept in her arms; carriage warm and dark.
Power lines sag heavy with dust. You won’t shake it off.
Carriage warm and dark.

An intermittent canyon opens – don’t fall in.
Just find somewhere better to go; you won’t take me along.
An unforgiving drop.

From bleached dreams of sleepers and sweeping scenes, I am awakened and hundreds of thumping subplots cross, as a stranger explains he was made to wait for eight stations... and you are gone...


from Linear B, released December 17, 2012
Closing stanza written, performed and recorded by Simon J. Curd.
