Album Notes
The bulk of this song was generously donated by a younger man who'd created it years ago ( he's since moved on to more sophisticated beats and melodies ), but I like the straight-forward simplicity of the original piece ( which I subsequently hacked into pieces and embellished ).
This cool and creative guy also supplied all of the background music for the singles " Party or No-Party Politics " and " What it is you want from me " ; the latter, of which, I only added a keyboard and some effects to. I am forever grateful for having known him at all.

Grey Thread ( Lyrics )

Well, his bones ain't movin' like they used to do
His mind might be missin' a thing or two
His yesteryears are slippin' away
He's just hangin' on to another day

Just hangin' on
Same ol' thread as yesterday
He made up 'is mind,
he's here to stay
Don't care 'bout wisdom or bein' too rude
Just livin' for his stories and livin' for food
Nuthin' comes easy, 'cept gettin' mo' grey
He just hangin' on to another day

It don't seem right,
but then, it don't seem wrong,
that anyone should last so long
Whatever you do, whatever you say,
We're all just hangin' on to another day ...
