elements


friends,

 

this week is episode 702.

 

it's inspired by the mystery of a new song:

 

elements

 

has it felt like we were forced to choose

between two enemies?

the one that says that i'm no good

or forever bein' a fool.

 

can you tell me which element is mine?

 

it's always a feeling

that cow jumped over the moon

that's never, no not really, gonna do.

and what about the business?

the world ain't interested.

 

where were y'all trying to make it to?

 

<solo>

 

the empty cold heart in it

lifetimes lived aside

how wonderful that almost was

you were always listening

but never could decide

 

can you tell me which element divides?

 

<solo>

 

can you tell me which element was mine?

and where were y'all trying to make it to?

can you tell me now which elements divide?

 

i hope this finds you well,

and that you'll join me.


tonight's songs:

- farmington hills (cat eyes, 2016)

- elements (demo, 2020)

- for the woman who has everything (lip service, 2013)

 

love,

russell

redemption


friends,

 

episode 701 finds me reflecting on regret

through the prism of redemption,

locus of control,

and growth.

 

that,

and our ongoing global pandemic,

bring me to two more

new songs.

 

i'm wishing you well,

and hope you'll join me.


the songs:

- make mistakes (demo, 2020)

- i wouldn't've learned a thing (demo, 2020)

- home (h-nd t- g-d, 2017)

 

love,

russell
