about

April's edition of Truax's Monthly Journal 'living album'

lyrics

She puts a lighter jacket on
The cold is going but still not gone
You know your brother and your baby need ya
But still you stand down wind from Fukushima

Forget your flowers
Just bring your showers April
And let your rains disguise our tears

Forget your flowers
Just bring your showers April
Wash clear the tarnish from this year

Your limbs unfold your petals open sweetly but
Your brooks are lined with stinging nettles lately
I feel a shiver in my knees
Perhaps I'm too eager to please

We'll meet down at the Working Man's in Reading
Then we can carpool to the Royal Wedding
The cars push in and out through this big city
Like blood cells in a map of capillaries

Each work day's like a single beat
Each of us play our tiny part
I've heard that things are going to turn
But still this dry foliage burns

Forget your flowers
Just bring your showers April
And let your rains disguise our tears...

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
