Rehearsing the Long Walk Home

from Witness by Jack O' The Clock


Sandhill cranes as we cross North Dakota.
A bid for the truth or just a poem?
Getting somewhere, Oh Lord,
or just rehearsing the long walk home?

Old lover, father and mother,
all of the holes I’ve gazed into:
I’m sorry, the light changed
and I never saw to the bottom of you.

I fear the fog like any hunter
accustomed to breath and clarity,
but when it descends, Oh Lord,
you lose your bearings and you are free.


from Witness, released October 3, 2019

JACK O' THE CLOCK "presents a fine lesson on what it means to write songs that are at once approachable and human while simultaneously being incredibly profound in terms of timbre, depth of emotion, and harmonic complexity," Progulator.
