almost drunk almost drowned almost swimming underground to stop a train without a track and turn it back "almost pretty when you smile" you said it once but i remembered for awhile wrapped it up in your undershirt meant to hurt seward's folly, level 10 never really learned it then you would say what i don't know could fill a sinkhole here in sitka swapping flags yours on up, while mine drags cannon blast makes a hole what you don't know what you don't know

he takes a step and misses and on his back, he notices that all the people walking on are walking on him he sees the soles, he sees the soles and tells the future he sinks and stinks and whispers "i'm under you, i'm under you" but i'm a good man, i'm an upright man i'm a good man, i'm an upright man i'm a good man, i'm an upright man i'm a good man the traffic never slows to let him up he catches rain in a cup he finds that he can move, but by degrees the winter comes and they're walking on his frozen knees they're dropping shit and car keys and it's too cold to cry poor guy one lonely human paver in the square all moss and grass and just a pair of eyes i know you don't believe me but he's there i know you don't believe me

about

Rachel Taylor Brown Portland, Oregon

Rachel was born in Portland and lives nearby with her beloved husband Jay. She makes disturbing yet ultimately sensible songs you can sometimes dance to.

She sees loads of ugly and beauty in the world. Trying to capture that sweet and sour thing in a song is what she’s mostly trying to do.

She records with audio midwife and dear friend Jeff Stuart Saltzman and his cats.

Thanks for stopping by!
