Older recording made outside, thus the wind and birds.
Unsteady rhythm, but unwavering Time.
I unearthed this after listening to S-town- a shared fascination with astrolabes, sundials, clocks, trying to track time yet losing it.
Track image is a photo of the incredible sundial made by John B.


Like a broken clock
still ticking inside
the hands on your face
what do they hide?

the day will break
the time will heal
and time will tell
but you never will

who let the night fall?
who broke the day?

you open your eyes
like strange flowers
they bloom in the night
in broken hours

who let the night fall?
who broke the day?
who broke your will?
who broke your fall?
who broke the day?

teach me to move
in time with your dial
and shadow your hands
all the while

teach me to move
like time through space
how do I yield
the line of your face

who let the night fall?
who broke the day?
who broke the still?
who broke the fall?
who broke the day?
