inspired by David Lynch's book Catching the Big Fish
performed live in the Bushwick Book Club at CounterEvolution, June 9, 2016

"You develop these little codes with certain actors or actresses. For me, for example, 'more wind' means 'more mystery.'" -David Lynch


red lips, green lawns
and Bobby Vinton’s song
see a lonely ear lying in a field
paint the picture till you can believe it’s real

but you need more wind
more wind, more wind, more wind
and you seek more wind
more wind, more wind, more wind

better do your work, that’s all you can control
gotta feed your family but don’t sell your soul
you’re on the threshold as you wait for more
someday later you’ll be coming through that door

but you need more wind...

don’t fight the darkness
just build a red room of your own
learn how to unlock it
the wind will tell you if you let it blow

you don’t know the box and you don’t know the key
but something is unfolding into mystery
like a rush of air brushing against your skin
is it a secret message, you can smell the jasmine
in the storm that’s rising on the vast horizon
there are forces wilder in the world inside you

but you need more wind...
