Default new song Solitary

yesterday Damo played a new song in Budapest, Solitary (provisional name)

the song has a bit of history

it's actually song 5 from the 10 Days of Barcelona

and he played a bit of it at a gig at NASA in Reykjavik in 2009

I absolutely love it, so glad it's not forgotten, guess its gonna be part of the 10 Days to Barcelona project

You can get it if you download the Budapest gig

can't believe he wrote Solitary on day 5 and Stoic on day 6 from 10 Days to Barcelona

lyrics thanks to Glo

look at me
just sucking on seeds
pretending i'm too weak
when i'm more than able

i've swallowed you
black and blue
pretending that i'm true
when i'm ordinary

and i'm sorry, sorry for shouting at you

look at us
cutting off our crusts
pretending that we trust
but we're lost in anger

now i'm falling through
the cracks we drew
black and blue
and solitary

and i'm sorry, sorry for shouting at you

I can't torrent and am surely not the only one so could you (or the taper) just upload it separately to YT or somewhere so we can all listen to it?

Quite ironic to compare this one to such "half finished" songs/ improvs that have way more components and length to them than just two short verses and a one sentence chorus.

BTW, I think "Black and Blue" is a more likely title since it captures thematically what the song is about and is the only phrase used in more than one place.

Of all the ‘new’ songs (this one is quite old, but it’s the first time we get to hear it in full) this one is by far my favourite.
I just hope he didn’t put the whole Barcelona project back in the freezer...
Thanks Jan for the recording and Glo for transcribing the lyrics.
