modern folk every day

My old pal Mike Molaro, front man for modern folk band archer heights (and wearer of great t-shirts) has been recording an original song a day, every day, during the month of April. On the 8th day of April, he dropped “the Golden Gate Game.” Here are the lyrics. Play at a moderate volume. Sing along.

the Golden Gate Game

the golden gate is still shining
though i am dull and grey
it gives and takes from weight and wind
I held straight until I gave

ooh, I awake to sitting here
ooh, a day or a thousand years?

what remains, the joy of all the pains?
friends returned to imaginary states
untouched in their grace

the haight’s still full of bud and hits
the MUNI stinks of skunk
the schizophrenic homeless fits
or was that my roommate drunk?

ooh, the mind is blowing leaves
ooh, gather and burn me

what remains, the joy of all the pains?
friends returned to imaginary states
the phone won’t do, winter always comes
with fingers so numb I hold to you
