Let the Darkness Come

He walks to the dock and looks around
At the water below
The scent of seaweed fills his lungs
It feels warm, yet cold, yeah

Beneath the moisture on his face
His eyes are sore and his ears are crimson
There’s constant lapping of water
It sounds like giant drums full of gasoline

But what if he sank to the bottom,
And he let his life go?
What if he gave up everything,
And he let the darkness come?

Ripples in the water,
Ducks bobbing up and down
Twinkling distant lights
From a distant town
A lonely bird in the endless gray clouds above
In the clouds above

The thoughts about today are mostly dim
How can he live with fog all around him?
His head is leaking out on the sidewalk
The brains are shiny and full of pain now
People begin to stare at him now and
Sometimes they laugh and some of them scowl and
Tell him the things that all of us know already, already

Liner Notes

Welcome to Super-Reality, and welcome to my sixth release.

Seven of these songs have appeared on my previous limited release, '28.' In addition to those, I've added seven more tunes to the collection now known as "Storyteller." Thank you for joining me on my continued journey of self-discovery.

All songs written, produced, edited, recorded, performed, mixed, and mastered by yours truly at Aceoft Studios in Cadillac, MI.

Thanks to my family, my lovely wife Heather, my friends, Spoof, Viktor, Zuehlke, and too many more to list here.
