lyrics

Satellite
Is it bright out there,
Overgrown,
In the tendrils of shade
All your hair’s entangled
In your kudzu crown
It’s all vining and blooming
Untamable

And when we hit calm it was soaking in miles of moonlight
Settled in orchards and vineyards in acres of rows
And over all the fields
Hung satellites
Each inviting us to bathe
And settle in the soil
Over each, another moon
That we couldn’t choose

And when we hit love I just coddled and loved it away
Settled and tied to a bed twin-sized alone
Blindfolded
By ambitious vine
I heard awful laughter
Felt their flashlights rise
Seeking and destroying
Untamable

It’s a massacre
Of every hue
A million moons
Remain to settle
Over all the farms
And over all their fields
A noxious weed
Remains to settle

about

Justin Lacy and the Swimming Machine Wilmington, North Carolina

The Swimming Machine runs on combustion. Fill it with fuel – a blend of upright bass, sax, guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin, xylophone and trumpet. To ignite, whistle, shout, and sing. Oxygen is required. Stomp if it gives you any trouble. To get the pistons turning, stir in some tambourines, buckets, shakers, cymbals, spoons, a tin can and as many floor toms as you can get your hands on. ... more
