Songs: Rain Song by Narrelle M Harris and Jess Harris

Only part of Rain Song is played by Steve in Chapter Four, so here is the whole thing: lyrics by Narrelle M Harris, music by Jess Harris. I’m thinking about submitting this song to Welcome to Night Vale for the podcast’s Weather report, when they start taking music submissions again. It is, after all, about the weather.

Listen to the ocean
Surrender water to the sky
Listen to the streams
Soak the clay and earth nearby
The lullabies of lakes
Evaporating droplets with a sigh
All these drips and beads and mists
Spinning invisibly by

Rain come down
Rain come down

Rain come down
Crash and pour and lash
Remember what you were
And fall

Rain come down
Rain come down
Wash the city streets
And wash the squares and towers
Endless showers
Wash the world free

Rain come down
Rain come down

Rain come down

Then go back to your seas
And river beds and banks and quays
Waiting for the cycle to repeat
Flow and ripple and fall again.

Here is Jess singing it live:

Songs: Crawling Ants by Jess Harris

Crawling Ants is the first song to appear in Kitty and Cadaver: read Monday’s blog to see the song in context.

In the meantime, here are the lyrics of Crawling Ants (music and lyrics by Jess Harris)

The grass is green and growing tall
Underneath it ants they crawl
My spirits high and then they fall
Like crawling ants who forgot what they crawl for

Caverns broaden in my mind
Beginning till the end of time
Deception everywhere I find
Intentional revelation is the tree I climb

I’ve softened my heart finally
For now it isn’t meant to be
Like self-sustaining energy
I hope you drift away and come back to me

Like crawling ants who forgot what they crawl for
I hope you drift away and come back to me.
