From the recording November Songs 2020

This song was written after watching a documentary on Amazon Prime about a prolific and tortured artist named Arthur Russell. It was called Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell. I recommend watching it, then listening to this song.

Lyrics

-Arthur Russell (Never Ending Verse)
The world’s so strange, the world’s so cruel
A little lore of both when you make your own rules
You go against the grain
Long enough to drive you insane
In a world so strange

And curse this band inside my ceiling fan
Delusions getting worse
The blessing is a curse
And curse the songs that gleam me on and on
To a never-ending verse
The blessing is a curse

The night-life gives, the night-life takes
It don’t care too much for ranks
You got a hit
But you didn’t even know it
The night-life gives, the night-life takes

And curse the beats between the honks and beeps

Delusions getting worse
The blessing is a curse
And curse the songs that gleam me on and on
To a never-ending verse
The blessing is a curse...
