It's pretty warm here in New York to be writing a song about the world freezing over. It is still a lovely fall, skirting the comfortable edges between chilly and cold, so this type of winter pondering is certainly premature. Still, it feels like winter came early this year, and I continue to sort out the fallout of recent events as they segue into a sustained state of being.

This song plays as bleaker than I actually feel about the situation we collectively face. I am entering a phase wherein Mount Everest and the practice it requires of me must necessarily become an outlet for emotions that I wish not to allow to fester. Allow me to unburden myself, and if you feel like I feel, let your burden down as well. We'll hold out together.


When the ice covers everything
And your paws are all froze to the ground
And the only kindness you know
Is the pale distant light of the sun

In the dark of America
Where the poison they poured in the well
Is the only drop you can drink
You hold out
You hold out
You hold out
