about

I've been getting back into my electric guitar, so I'm changing things up a little bit with this song. It's certainly not a rock tune, but It has a very different feel from anything I've made recently.

The deep echo and delay that I used on this track seemed to evoke the way the city can feel lonely. Sometimes it's one of the things that I like about living in a big city -- the feeling of anonymity it affords me. Even when I'm in a crowd, I can be anonymous. Even surrounded by millions, I can disappear if I want to. In a strange way, the pandemic has amplified this feature, since it's now socially encouraged to hide my face. I can venture out and be anybody or nobody.

lyrics

Faceless
There's nothing wrong with that
I can move between
The little cracks in things

I could disappear
I was never here

Always
On my own terms
Up the fire escape
Down the alleyway

I could disappear
I was never here

Always
Always
In an abandoned place
Or adrift out in space
Anyplace
