Lyrics: 

Hanging up CDs
Is meant to ward off birds
Twisting in the sun
Burns off every

Zero and one
It seems sad to me
How prevention ruins what it was supposed to be

Lake keeping

Hanging up the discs
That came with magazines
Muddied by the weather
Wonder if you’ve

Ever given thought
To the water beneath
And the stagnating creatures
That struggle to breathe

Lake keeping

This microcosm’s failing
And extinction might win, oh
I won’t let you down
If you let me in

Lake keeping

It’s not hard to find
Prisms that might blind
Stem it at the source
And let things run their course

You see
It seems sad to me
How prevention ruins what it was supposed to be

Lake keeping

a stirring ecological warning that begins with a folkloric remedy and expands to the edge of extinction. written and sung with a tender delicacy and keen intellect. very effective the way the music speeds up in the second half of the verses.

I just started listening, and already I can't wait to hear another of your songs!
Lovely voice, lyrics that stand as poetry and are delightfully melodic and singable, and unique approach to folk guitar playing. Nice one!
