Video: This Machine (cover)

West Coast Chalice: Karl Blau, Brian Tottenham, Braydn Krueger, Doug Cassidy, and Jesse.

The original version of “This Machine” is from ‚ÄúDovetail” (K Records, 1992).

This Machine

Making it anything
so it isn’t nothing now
I am touching at the future
with a tin edge hollow stamp

I wove the spin of endurance
knots hanging in black twine
jarred up on a plank shelf
oiled to a (dull) shine

I am wanting (watching)
I am wishing
for wind
to knock this stillness out

Making it anything
so it isn’t nothing now

Screaming on track
pounding up loud
dreaming down pipe on a sigh
sifting on freight tight
this machine rides

Making it anything
so it isn’t nothing
