‘Empty Boxes’ by Zoolon
All along the coast I keep seeing empty boxes no one lives in or ever seems to use. All around the towns I keep seeing homeless people sleeping in shop doorways. A bit like the Jewish proverb, ‘A penny is a lot of money, if you haven’t got a penny’. In this case, ‘A box is somewhere to live, if you haven’t got a box’. I’m guessing the boxes will stay empty; the homeless will still sleep rough. Just a random thought.
The basic lyric I wrote for my song, ‘Red Mist’ back in 2013.
Red mist rising
I can’t think, I can’t think
Words I shouldn’t have spoken
Take me to the brink
What if nothing is real?
What if it’s all inside my head?
How do you think I would feel?
Knowing reality was dead
Red mist rising
Where do I belong?
Words I never meant to say
Words without a song
Grey clouds above
Storm brewing down below
Colours melt away
I don’t know friend from foe
Red mist rising,
I don’t know who I’ve become
But I’m going to stand my corner
Not trade the fiddle for the drum
Next my piece of sound art, ‘Leaving the City Behind’ composed for the Cosa Nostra album. Maybe the mood of the piece works for homeless who’ve left/lost everything behind?
Here’s an interesting song. She never does cover version usually, yet with her talent Tori Amos doesn’t disappoint with this one, ‘Losing my Religion’. She turns the song into a piece of pure art.
As of just now I have made a number of my songs that do not appear on my albums are available as singles to purchase and download on:
Also, my albums are still for sale on Bandcamp;
