about

This is a song I wrote for my niece who was born this year.

lyrics

sweet little pearl of light
dropping in off of heaven bright
here from the edge of the unknown
welcome to the wild great picture show

bundle of proof that love exists
one plus one and there you is
can't wait to see how you get grown
welcome to the wild great picture show

you're the best parts of your dad and mom
you righteous mix tape, you little best of comp
you're the only you we've ever known
welcome to the wild great picture show

outside sweetie it's a nasty game
in between it and your little frame
are heads and hearts to shield you from the row
aint nothing as crazy as the wild great picture show

swirl of star stuff, little building block
show this old world just what you got
don't believe everything you know
and welcome to the wild great picture show

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
