  1. Not as Absurd

From the recording Music In Progress

In cart Not available Out of stock

Penned somewhere initially in the 90's, as musical influence will show. Luckily recorded an impromptu gathering with previous band mates, Sean Truskowski on drums, and Mitch Banach on bass. Both were on Christmas break in 2014. I kinda filed this one away and revisited during quarantine time of 2020. I still like it. It's weird how words written over 20 years ago could be twisted into this very moment. Of course, then this song is timeless in my opinion. It is a song for the listener to make a meaning. It is open for interpretation, but in no way written initially about today's circumstances. I don't define any one thing except maybe my constant, calculating, sifting, chattering mind.

Lyrics

It's taken this long
Well how much longer?
Your sympathy in strides
Won't make it stronger
It's taken this long
Well how much longer?

So search me
I've taken my pieces off the board
So reach me
My thinking now not as absurd

It's taken us along
The facts are astounding
But could it be the fiction
The cause of this grounding?
It's taken us along
To leave unsoundly

So search me
I've taken my pieces off the board
So reach me
My thinking now not as absurd
