Image of orange
I hadn't written anything in a little bit, and felt a bit out of inspiration. Picked up an old nylon string "classical" guitar, and started playing a few chords, and this started to gradually appear. I was thinking of 'impending doom' - is the 'horrifying image of orange' the fires raging in California (which are turning the skies orange) , or is that orange trumpster fire in the white house, or is it a bit of both? I guess.. 'both' is the answer, and as a public service, i provide a bit of a possible way out of the doom in the last verse.
this was a fairly quick one, recorded on the iPhone using music memos (which can add its own drums, which you hear in this recording) with a little eq and compression and echo added in audacity. I'm not sure what i think of it!
A horrifying image of orange
That ball of fire is out of control
A force of nature, unstoppable and vast
Aiming right for our souls
It’s possible we set it in motion
With anger that raged like a river
Now all of us are sinking low
a verdict all but sealed and delivered
And when the reckoning comes at last
To a restless and impatient nation
Witnesses will not believe their eyes
To see the opposite of creation
There’s still a slim chance for diversion
A respite from the wrath of the fates
Repair to those booths, those sacred voting booths
To lift this sinking ship of state
