about

not so much about Alex Honnold’s insane bravery, as the lonely hurt child in all of us. the child clinging to the side of the mountain, to her family.

lyrics

FREE SOLO (FOR ALEX HONNOLD) (sanden)
well i’m just a quiet kid struck by his own horse
doing what i did follow the directions of course
la di da di da and i’m untethered again
with all the pocket chalk on earth
my hands are shaky sweating
mommy
daddy
sister
brother
family look at me
i’m just a normal kid not antisocial or grim
but all the cool kids won’t feel the mountain like i did
i’m climbing every tree every branch everything
there’s so much loneliness in your face in my chest
mommy daddy
i love girls’ breasts i love rock and roll
slip the earth’s surly bonds you’ll finally be free
i guess i should thank my friends for leaving me be
i’m all on my own free*
i’m separated you know free
i love rock and roll free
i love rock and roll free

Mixing melody, spoken word, and noise, the sound is somewhere between Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, and the Beach Boys on a dark day. Or Elliott Smith on an extremely bright, sunny day. Or John Cale tossing his car keys to Neil Young. ... more
