The great conclusion. The price you pay for the life you’re given. I wanted an epic song, inexorable as death. I didn’t want fear, though – I was aiming for something more strangely seductive, the quiet calm after a long day.
My friend Meghann, an amazing singer, came over to give the song some of her magic. I told her vaguely what I wanted and she did three takes. I saved each of the takes, fiddled around with them just a bit, and the result is, I think, pretty angelic. Meghann’s down in San Diego now and I haven’t seen her in ages, which is sad. Listening to this piece makes me miss her. She had great taste in beer.
Finally, once everything was pretty much recorded, my dear friend Jesse took the whole song in hand and helped me craft it into something listenable. Basically he took a lumbering ~20 minute ode to death and sculpted it into one of my favorite songs. Jesse owns a farm in New Mexico and doesn’t really do music anymore. A pity.
