Dark and Scary

October 30, 2010 11:39 PM

My friend Bill got hit by a car while riding his bike in San Raphael, California last month. He's been in a coma, and broke his vertebrae, collarbone, ribs, and has been on a respirator, critical. He has a history of alcoholism, and meth. He came to the midwest because his mother was dying, and after she did, there were ghosts in her house. We wrote and recorded this three years ago when he was in the midwest in 2007. I was planning on finishing it for Halloween this year. But now it makes more sense to me. Wow. Sometimes music transcends time and space.

Dark and Scary

Dark and Scary
I can't believe
(so dark and scary)
how the wind just flows through the trees
(so dark and scary)
All the things that I once knew
(so dark and scary)
Once I remembered...
but I don't know who
is dark and scary...
..that I can't be seen
(it's dark and scary)
even when you look directly at me
(it's dark and scary)
maybe I'm dead, but I just don't know
(it's dark and scary)
everythings weird now,
I just walked through a wall.

It's dark and scary
That I am alone
(it's dark and scary)
How my silence
becomes a loud moan
(it's dark and scary)
Maybe I sleep
a breathless dream
(it's dark and scary)
My aspiration is only not to be
so dark and scary...

There's a man that I once knew
his house is black
and it's scary, too.
When he haunts
I really don't mind
I can get him to come out...
any time
(it's dark and scary)

My mind stops
at the speed of light
(it's dark and scary)
outer things have turned
new shades of white
(it's dark and scary)

and in my basement
comes my black white skunk
(it's dark and scary)
fed fat by the skullcap monk

woos us all night
it came from Mars
(it's dark and scary)
from a band with two thousand guitars
(it's dark and scary)
Down by a river by the Frisco bay
(so dark and scary)
even Bob Weir doesn't know what to say
(it's dark and scary)
The full moon
becomes a young girls face
(it's dark and scary)
down the hallway
at a ghostly pace
(it's dark and scary)
Through the door
with an oaken thud
(it's dark and scary)
she drags my reason
through the dark black mud of...

Can't see...mmmmmm
Don't wanna be...
but I am...
so very... dark.
so very....dark
It's very, very, very (black dark) DARK .
(dark black)
DARK. (black) mmmmm.....
Big black clouds comin' down...
it's very, very, (dark) (dark) blind black dark
(black dark)
Very, very, very. (black dark) Very Dark. (mmm hmmm)
(dark) Can't hardly see anything!
Dark, black blind dark!
(black dark)
going ghosts coming out of the bushes going....
Very dark. Dark black.

This is the most jittery, nervous song I have heard in a while. I mean that in a good way. Thanks for posting it!
