As I Slowly Disappear

January 19, 2010 5:28 PM

Recorded live in performance at Nana Hari, Tokyo, on January 17, 2010. Accompanying myself on the strumstick. Video at YouTube and Vimeo.

as i slowly disappear

saw you on the street
as if by chance
but now i know you choreographed it
like a little dance
guess i'd have to wonder why
you'd come back around here
was it to watch me
as i slowly disappear

silence always surrounded us
like a smothering fog
and then misunderstanding
each other's words was like
falling off a log
there's been too much pain inflicted
and now it's all turned to fear
i wear it like cellophane armor
as i slowly disappear

so just go back where you came from
i thought you already knew
you've already done all the damage
all the damage that you can do
ah but if you insist, well then
stick around my dear
all i'm gonna do anyway
is slowly disappear

I'm kinda bummed that the video effect, reminiscent of, say, a xerox of a xerox, didn't look as good on YT and Vimeo as it does on the original file I uploaded to those sites. It got pixel-y when run through whatever compression they do.

Still a great vid though. Bravo, man, bravo. That's a nice thoughtful piece of work.

I love it when those low o's break. Great piece! <3

This sounds great. I really like what you do with your falsetto. By starting up in that register, it seems like it pulled you out of the melodic habits that you sometimes fall into when you start lower and save the high note for later.
