A song to heroin, composed by Tim Buckley while wandering around Brooklyn, high on mushrooms. A beautiful mess. It's not too terribly difficult to hear where Jeff Buckley inherited the foundation of his glorious talent from.

Please excuse the distortion at the chorus - the mic on the iPhone is a bit limited (as is the battery, which crapped out about halfway through). I'm sure we'll eventually get around to recording this again with more capable equipment. A taste to hold you over until then, yes? ;)

Yours in music,
Eyem (on guitar) & Ghost.
Brooklyn, NYC.

You don't remember what to say
You don't remember what to do
You don't remember where to go
You don't remember what to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down

All the stony people
Walking 'round in christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For pleasant street

The sunshine reminds you of concreted skies
You thought you were flying but you opened your eyes
And you found yourself falling back to yesterday's lies
Hello, pleasant street, you know she's back again
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down
[and here, the battery go pffft...:/
