To read more about this track and the ill-fated but wonderful project it survived, check out "The Tragic Tail of Lil Tiger". Thematically, it could be seen as similiar to, or a continuation of, the contemplation at the core of "Golden State", another song about the impermanence of everything. It seemed right to put them together here, though they are very different stylistically.


February & the Mayfly

words tears palaces fireworks
contours of the body coastlines curved by time's erosion
all will be gone
as goes the mayfly
war rain innocence
long eyelashes
fame joy
february and the mayfly

sieze all there is
and hold it and then
release it
see all there is
to hear to taste to feel
because you know
it's only temporary
it'll all be over
nothing lasts forever
whatever it is
sieze it and release it
feel it all and let it
