The Voices Tell Us to Burn Things

Here’s another track from 2007’s “Dancing For Patriotism”, and one of my favorites from that album. One of the things I tried to do with this song – and I’d like to think I succeeded – is to be patient with some musical ideas, but not to an extent where the song drags on and loses its punch. Lyrically, we can put this in the pantheon of “Ed’s Songs That Sound Serious But Don’t Actually Make Any Sense” (though the title probably gives that away). Structure-wise, it’s one of the longest intros I’ve ever done. Enjoy!

Drums recorded by Rich Wattie in Montage Music Hall, Rochester, NY. Everything else recorded at home by me. All instruments, mixing by me.
