    I thought these were all done and over with. Just coasters for our drinks, but it turns out I've gotten a lot of requests for a CD release of this new album, recorded in Iceland by Kurt Uenala and Jim Infantino. So, I've pressed some for our digital spinning fans. They are in a paper fold over package with no shrinkwrap because shrinkwrap is evil. Lyrics are on bigego.com - enjoy!

about

In the studio, Kurt had to go out to get a haircut. My friend Lionel said, why don't I write a tune about one of the characters in my book, swimming away from an exploding town. I wrote this while Kurt was out and we recorded it the same day.

lyrics

emily swam out past the breakers
emily left her lies behind
over and round the broken wreckage
of the sunken shoreline

above her the moon was shining heavy
below her the bottom dropped away
behind her she heard the first explosion
in the court house by the bay

her uniform was on the ground
she left it purple, gray, and muddy
they would assume that she had drowned
after all she was nobody

wouldn’t they know what she had done?
wouldn’t they curse her phony name
didn’t she worry didn't care
they had themselves to blame
emily swam away from anger
emily swam away from pain
emily swam away from fire
when the explosions began to wane

her uniform was on the ground
she left it purple, gray, and muddy
they would assume that she had drowned
after all she was nobody

emily swam
