about

"Landslider" was inspired by the artist Swoon's installation Submerged Motherlands, on view at the Brooklyn Museum.

brooklynmuseum.org/exhibitions/swoon

This is the ninth installment of EXHIBIT, a museum-based serial song project.

Prior to the creation of each song in the series, I spend time in the museum of my choosing. Within one week's time, I compose and record a song inspired by the visit.

lyrics

LANDSLIDER

Don't have the answers - no, not one
I was a landslide but now I'm done
Ripping myself apart
Looking for ways to start
I know better now

Water rising fast
Carry me carry me
Water rising
Carry me away
Mighty Ursa Major
Follow me follow me
Mighty Ursa Major
Follow me

I don't need you anymore
I'll leave you buried along the shore
Telling a tale to who?
Anyone passing through
I know better now

Water rising fast
Carry me carry me
Water rising
Carry me away
Mighty Ursa Major
Follow me follow me
Mighty Ursa Major
Follow me

Don't have the answers - no, not one
I was a landslide but now I'm done
