lyrics

Jack settled down back in Kennedy after leaving the Armed forces.
But it was only three months before his friends sat him down for an intervention,
accusing Jack of not having spoken a complete sentence since that february.

It wasn't that jack had lost his mind, but only that he he'd been spending most of it along grassy knolls, competing in the game of balancing the thrown ball on the sharpened sword. A game he'd been competing in ever since he'd seen the corner of Cedric's face fall off from a bullet in the village.
and now he was already in his final round.





They met him at the diner, and tried to recall the past,
and how the mayor was expecting him to cut next ribbon. He Smiled. But it was to the sword fans, now making their last cries of encouragement from the sidelines.


And they were lucky to have him now with the rainy season gone, and only thirty months left on earth before the sun swallowed everything past mars.

about

James Wallace and the Naked Light Nashville, Tennessee

Once, in an abandoned house, I found a tape of Black Gospel music pirated from a station out of Greensboro in 1967. Like a child of the middle class, I wrote down how it felt. Now we're six or seven together, and loud enough.
