about

Among the resolutions of ‘Take bath’, ‘Learn people better’, ‘Dont get lonesome’, Woody Guthrie penned ‘Keep hoping machine running’.

Claire came across Woody Guthrie’s list while perusing brainpickings.org in a state of the sort of openness birthed only by desperation. Nick had bought a chorus pedal, darkening and darkening the textures and moods of his guitar. The next day in their rehearsal space with Will the overhead lights were turned off, the energy of the room a bit low and dejected, the chorus pedal moved to the bass and the bassline, soon to be the theme of the song, came into the room. Claire was thinking of Woody Guthrie, hoping for relief from a worrying head, Nick was resting in a shadow of sound, and Will, eyes closed and meticulous as ever punctuating rhythm into the emerging bed of sound.

lyrics

Whats a girl gotta do to get free?
Around here
Whats a girl gotta do to get free?
Gotta gotta get free

Pace myself, gotta gotta settle in
with the people I know
Pace myself, gotta gotta settle in

What should I do?
What should what should I do?

The open fire of conversation is making oceans the current changes
The open fire of conversation is washing over the lonely places

Whats a girl gotta do to get free?
Around here
Whats a girl gotta do to get free?
Gotta gotta get free

That's what I'll do
That's what, That's what I'll do

The open fire of conversation is making oceans the current changes
The open fire of conversation is washing over the lonely places

Hope machine
Keep my thoughts running
