with the theme of summer coinciding with the week of ray bradbury's passing, it seemed appropriate to write a song using bits from bradbury's dandelion wine, which is one of my favorite books. read it!


and suddenly,
absolutely everything
was there.

i’m alive,
and everyone’s alive,
but what’s the use
when they’re more alive than me?

the first thing you learn in life is you’re a fool,
and the last thing you learn in life is you’re the same fool.

a crazy creature with a head full of carnival spangles.

and time is so strange
and life is twice as strange;
the cogs miss,
the wheels turn.
and lives interlace too early,
or too late.

all i know is i feel good going to bed nights.
that’s a happy ending once a day.
but what makes the night?
shadows crawling out under from five billion trees.
