about

"I suppose this is a strange song- but I'm pretty strange myself. It just came out of nowhere and there it was. It's atmospheric and sort of a hi-purple chiaroscuro winking by narcotic riverbanks."

lyrics

I'm in the middle of a rain forest
Rain falling down on me
I'm in the middle of a rain forest
And it's too dark to see

Dark as night
And warm as blood
Snakes are talking bout the brotherhood
I hear voices
On the wind
They stir the leaves of where I've been

I'm in the middle of nowhere
Somewhere is all around
I'm in the middle of nowhere
That I'm likely to be found

Send them south
And send them west
Play your cards close to your chest
Dead man famous
Made him dead
Sleeps like a baby in his hideabed

I'm like an echo in a canyon
Hear me fade away
Gone like an echo in a canyon
Gone like yesterday

They seen him here
They seen him there
But they can't find him anywhere
Soft as light
Through falling snow
The dream police never saw him go

Fame and fortune went missing
They had the wrong address
The crime was love in private
With nothing to confess

Take it light
Or let it go
What did it mean? well I don't know
The dancing wind
And the smilin moon
Say so long I'll see you soon

I'm in the middle of a rain forest
Rain falling down on me
I'm in the middle of a rain forest
And it's too dark to see

Dark as night
And warm as blood
Snakes are talking bout the brotherhood
I hear voices
On the wind
They stir the leaves of where I've been
