This is a song called "Word To Spread" I have been piecing together over the past 3 years. Each layer was recorded live in the locations you can see in the footage. It was filmed on many different things from an iPhone to a quality SLR. The audio was recorded on many different mics with many different devices in many different environments as you can hear. It's not the best mix, some of the footage is wobbly and it took me a long time to get all the audio to match but it reminds me of some great places, great times and legendary people. Thanks to everyone who offered me a couch or a camera hand over the years.

you can download it here if you feel so inclined.

lyrics
well i can’t speak their language but i can order their ales
so I can skip those borders if all else fails
strength in my passport Samsonite Samson
i’ll find my Delilah and i’ma fill a stein (philistine) glass with reckless abandon

and i aint got a place round here
and no one know my face round here
i’ve only got my word to spread and
a place to rest my head.
and i aint got a place round here
and no one know my face round here
i’ve only got my word to spread and
a place to rest my head.

well i’ve been crushed by the cabin pressure
placed on a pedestal and praised by strangers
and when i think that i’m king of the hill
i still look small to the mountain ranges
from the river to the sea, from the city to the stages
driven by humility and my pen upon these pages
cause i grew up on the train lines
where i learned to duck and weave
while the city slept them sleepers kept
a certain hold over me
but now i’ve flown my coop but i know where i was founded
so no matter how high that i fly them sleepers keep me grounded.

and i aint got a place round here
and no one know my face round here
i’ve only got my word to spread and
a place to rest my head.and i aint got a place round here
and no one know my face round here
i’ve only got my word to spread and
a place to rest my head.and i aint got a place round here
and no one know my face round here
i’ve only got my word to spread and
a place to rest my head.
