about

In 1996 the Hale-Bopp comet was perfectly aligned in front of my apartment. Every morning for weeks it was the first thing I saw walking outside and the last thing I saw before going in. I suppose people outside of South Dakota saw it as well, but, I suspect, not in such an all-encompassing way.

lyrics

Catching Echoes

I stood in rushing water surrounded by my friends
That colde Vermillion river washed us around the bend
Like catfish we fought the tide and on the banks we dried
That day is burned in me, but no words survive

Sometimes words are only words
Just because you listed doesn't mean that you've heard
All alone in this empty room, I am
Catching echoes

I used to watch the stars on every rise and every fall
The comet didn't seem so far away, but it grew so very small
I like to think of us, our tribe forever strong
One day you turn around and everybody's gone

Sometimes words are only words
Just because you listed doesn't mean that you've heard
All alone in this empty room, I am
Catching echoes

Only so many places to go, now it's just all of us again
The world outside is very small when winter has settled in
Time is flying by while simultaneously so slow
I've traveled into the future while still locked in a tableau

Sometimes words are only words
Just because you listed doesn't mean that you've heard
All alone in this empty room, I am
Catching echoes
