about

Volume 1 of the Splinter Cat sessions, a series of songs I am co-producing with Colin J Nelson at Her Car Studios. This was a wonderful, cathartic experience, as not only is the Splinter Cat project artistically and ideologically unique for me, it was also wonderful experiencing the thoughts and feelings surrounding the song itself and capturing them in a beautiful way. Kudos to Colin J Nelson for facilitating a very welcoming environment and Olie for the perfect emotive performance.

lyrics

It was a real fun funeral, beautifully brutal
All the pews were full, standing room only
Mom held on to my arm, while we sand "In The Garden"
Momma, hold on

When I wake up from this wake I'll take a moment
to dry my eyes, go back to acting stoic
What's been given by every thing taken away?
It was a real fun funeral

It was a real fun funeral, tragically magical
Oh, the bar was full, standing room only
Me and my brother, playing pool
All the fools on stools immortal
"How are you? Me too."

When I wake up from this wake I'll take a moment
to dry my eyes, go back to acting stoic
What's been given by every thing taken away?
It was a real fun funeral
