about

My friend, Kasey Anderson, gave me a list of titles to write songs to, and this is one of the titles he gave me. I was trying to make a song with a refrain rather than a chorus. Weirdly, this probably has no refrain and no chorus either... Thanks, Kasey, for the prompt.--Matt

lyrics

LINIMENT


I’m talking smack all through your teletype
The end is closer on a motorbike
That’s why you’re screaming like its cinnamon
The snow is falling like a liniment

We are the days
Of wounded suns, of moons and thud
The message strikes us
Tick-tock colossus, beer can flood
Your smile is stranger
Than definitions no one trusts
To make the noises
That undermine migrating birds…

I’m crushing lemons on a Ferris Wheel
Out of bounds, so now the letter’s sealed
In waves of consciousness, we’re infinite
The skies of gray apply a liniment

Walking in Westwood
And every phone begins to buzz
Someone’s in stitches
About the microphone that was
An empty storefront
Of fireworks most of them duds
You go to voicemail
Your message finds me in the woods

I’ll take the long way
Around the shopping carts of gauze
And when I find you
We’ll both be lightbulbs drawing straws
From pinking milkshakes
The ones that never melt or pause
To let the planes land
In open fields or just because

Disaster dances in the digital
So now the software goes collectible
The word’s elastic, light, and ligament
Your breath upon me like a liniment
