lyrics

Running from my demons, I sought the desert land
40 days and 40 nights I ran

With blacktop underneath me, the sun before me rose
40 days and 40 nights I drove

She appeared like she was heaven sent
The Devil’s Playground is where it is we went

We ate the food of the gods in repose
Take this trip wherever the hell it goes

The rain came down, dissolved me into the wind
And so it came to pass, I met my end

She often spoke of Tangiers, said that’s where she’d be
40 days and 40 nights at sea

As we shot the junk of Naked Lunch, I found myself entranced
40 days and 40 nights we danced

She whispered of occult things that she had done
Said I’d love to help, but you know I’m on the run

With serpentine movement, she came across the bed
More than once I’d a sworn that I was dead

The rain came down, dissolved me into the wind
And so it came to pass, I met my end

I showed her my pistol and I could see that she was scared
40 days and 40 nights we stared

She slumped down to the floor, pain tore me up inside
40 days and 40 nights I cried

Her heart was broke at the loss of her youth
I said, "Honey, I don’t know about you, but I think I’m through"

“This life we’re livin’, ain’t livin’ at all”
Her eyes rolled back and I ran out from the stall

The rain came down, dissolved me into the wind
And so it came to pass, I met my end

Stewart Eastham Nashville, Tennessee

Stewart Eastham takes his music in bold new directions with his third full length solo album "The Great Silence". This release takes on the metaphysical realm exploring grand themes of life, death, and rebirth. While not technically a “concept” album, it feels like one with its repeating themes and motifs.
