The Road to Catatonia (Fine, Fine Line)

NEW

SUMMER 2019

Somewhere on the road to Catatonia

Somewhere on the road I lost my love

I stroked her pretty head

But I knew that she was dead

Somewhere on the road I lost my love

 

Somewhere on the road to Catatonia

Somewhere on the road I lost my home

Something told me I should fly

Once those flames lit up the sky

Somewhere on the road I lost my home

It’s a fine, fine line x 4

Somewhere on the road to Catatonia

Somewhere on the road I lost my name

Their mouths were wide and round

But they did not make a sound

Somewhere on the road I lost my name

It’s a fine, fine line x 4

 

Now I’ve found the road to Catatonia

I shut my eyes and opened to the Way

Now my shadow walks the land

Weapon blazing in his hand

Perhaps he’ll cross your path one lucky day

Perhaps he’ll cross your path one lucky day

Perhaps he’ll cross your path come Judgment Day

 

It’s a fine, fine line x 4

Artist Statement

This song was inspired in part by the work of The Decemberists and Colin Meloywhose work I have been listening to incessantly for maybe two years now. I like to think this comes through in its mythic and folkloric elements as well as its theme of madness and the brutal potential of blind faith. Or the blind potential of brutal faith. Your pick.
