Song #11

Well, I'm not sure where this one came from. It's a little out of the norm for me, perhaps. I was thinking about building things--specifically in terms of 'building a life' or 'building a future' or 'building something from nothing'. Then I got this idea of a brick man who is sort of taking himself apart to build a wall to keep everything out--but vanishing in the process. (Don't steal that idea--its copyrighted!)
Wait! There's more...
Then I thought about the bricks as a metaphor for years, and the more you lay them down the more you are diminishing; like our little brick man, see. Then this song came out.
That's all.

God, I need to get out of the house more.

It seems like the songs keep getting better in my opinion. Honestly, this one's the best yet. :)

I love the metaphor of the builder. That is a really powerful image...building a wall to shut people and experiences out, all the while...losing one's sense of self and ultimately, participation in life. Of course, you know my love of melancholy wants to think of this song in the context of some kind of sadness that the outsider feels on behalf of the almost non-feeling builder.

I hope things are going well with you!
