Channing Freeman’s 2021

Good music, bad year

This should be #59 but it bugged out

As the man came ever nearer
Both entangled, one aware
He mouthed a warning none could hear
And sank into the silt

Is there a you without me
The me with star swept eyes?
Alive with fresh becomings
New grass beneath black skies
The Architect

Do you ever think about all the things you could become?
Stand For Myself

We aren’t the rich ones
Some of us will barely get by
They buy diamond studded shoes with our taxes
Anything to keep us divided
96Origami Angel
Gami Gang

Take me back to watching Pokémon with you
Your house at three in the morning
Maybe I’ll stay over for a couple days
We’ll be so caught in the moment

I’m lying lifeless inside a dim lit hall

Take me far beyond the stars
Where my heart was always longing

Follow the rain to the reservoir
Just let it all out
86The Raging Nathans
Waste My Heart

I don’t want to waste my heart
On something I can’t change
85Silent Planet

Borrowed light, a parasite
I fed on the dusk and hid myself from the night
And we don’t speak, we barely hear
I watched you watch me disappear
King's Disease II

Talk about back in the days
This isn’t back in the days
They want me back in my ways
Chipped tooth and the fade
83Lord Huron
Long Lost

Leave me where the moonbeams
Carve through the leaves like blades
Lay me in the tall-grown grass in a shallow grave
Let it have me

Disgusting relentless pit of filth
Sewage infested wasteland
81Viagra Boys

We’re gonna spite our noses
Right off of our faces
There won’t be nothin but big old hearts
Dancin in our eyes
80Fortress (USA-CA2)
Waiting for the Night

I can see the world within my mind
I can see the future when I close my eyes
This house is too big, this house is too small

Catch you looking back at me
I wasn’t meant to find you
78The Antlers
Green to Gold

My overgrown comfort zone
My narrow mind is mine alone
77Mare Cognitum
Solar Paroxysm

We’ll pay with the ashes of our humanity
And cease to walk upon this earth
And the earth will forget our name
The Machine Is Burning...

The industry tends to call environmentalists radical. The reality is that 95% of the standing native forest in the United States had been cut down. It’s not radical to try and save the last 5%, what’s radical is logging 95%.
Swim Out Past The Breakers

All well aware of the effort it takes
To correct a rash decision
To correct a really bad mistake

To save me from darkness and pain without end?”

The voices never still
Every breath a transgression
Every second a weakening of the will

And oh the water’s heading into me
I’ve left out a lot of things
Hung like trophies stolen in defeat
I watch you wait for me

What’s health without poorly?
What’s wealth without the poor?

Black moon rising
Glimpse of madness
Blossom black rose
Withered, abandoned

Now that you dove down
Found the bottom begging for air
How sad, how long it takes us to rise and fight
Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night

Still my mother crying out -
“How dare you want more?”

Lord I’m goin’ uptown
To the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound

I thought I couldn’t move my feet
But I’m running with you now
We’re a stampede

And this year we were standing
Looking out off the veranda
You said, “Yeah I guess it’s pretty
But I’m a shell of what I once was”

The burden in my heart
With no relief in sight
I’m being torn apart

Other People’s Lives

You told me not to get old
Watching your light go out slow
With a lump in my throat

Hushed and Grim

Say when
And I’ll come running back

And I’ll always feel a little left behind
But that lying wind that calls your name
Will leave you flowing blind

An eclipse only shines from a distance
You can’t make sense of a world you’re not in

What comes next feels aimless
Everything turns white
We are always alone

I’ve been shaking ever since
In the Court of the Dragon

And the heavens go up in flames

And the names go on

And the raging fires of hell burn long

In the long dark night of eternal life, shine on
You’ve always been a light
