about

I’ve admired the art of David Bridie for years but I have only just recently had a couple of chances to play music with him through his connection with my long time friend and collaborator, Fred Smith. I was incredibly nervous when I emailed a link to this song (written during FAWM 2015) and so happy when he wrote back to say he liked it. Such an unbelievable privilege bring this song to life in the musical company of this man.

lyrics

Satan Sighs

Satan sighs,
Pulls on his boots
It's so damn hard to get up these days
The copy cats all holding court
Hardly anyone ever prays these days
Hardly anyone ever prays

Pitchfork lonely on his shelf
Dusty, rusted obselete
They got cleverer ways all figured out
Almost everyone hurts themselves these days
Almost everyone hurts themselves
They don't need no cartoon boogieman
When they're dying to hurt themselves

Scans the paper sees his name
In black and white yet far from true
Some deeds too low for me to stoop
There's no horror they can't out do these days
There's no horror they can't out do

Satan sighs,
Pulls off his boots
Collapses in his rocking chair
I'd damn them all to heaven, but
Hardly anyone knows the way these days
Hardly anyone knows the way
And hardly anyone ever prays these days
Hardly anyone knows the way
Hardly anyone ever prays these days
Hardly anyone ever prays
