about

'Out and Into the Vast Again' is a previously unreleased B-side from the album 'Mångata'.

This song is an alternative version of the song 'Out and Into the Vast' with spoken word by our friend Rhys Jon Baker of A Native Hundred.

lyrics

It must have rung thirty times before he picked up the receiver
Voice like broke ribs he spits out a 'who's there?'
His brow; prodigiously furrowed even when sat untroubled
lightens now and turns itself inside out
His hope is a mewling fox cub sat tight in a tighter throat
'Outside... Out there?'
The answer comes like morning sun
'Aye, Shay. Aye.'
Shay contains himself. Replaces the receiver and returns to his book.
That night, just as the wine and sleep take him, he feels his blood finally warm again.
And he dreams of old friends.
One in particular; a friend who became a wife after a thousand shared breakfasts
A wife who bore and loved their child.
Now both hang vampyric each night in oil paintings.
Next a.m. Shay washes the shame from his eyes and the vinegar out his mouth
While loading his pack the ocelots in his amber eyes glide between mottles and his memories
step up and are alive once more.
The walk from the harbour to his grandfather's farm
'My numbers came in so praise Jesus, praise money!'
The smell of sweat and wilting wood anemones abound
In the hour before departure he sharpens his knife
You never knew back then, so he couldn't know now
Four hours he reckons, maybe half a day
Then he'd be stood at the door
His hand would be sliding up her neck, along her jaw and pushing the hair back over her ear
And then the kiss
But when he closes that third door behind him, it's scrawled on the wall
And there are no scents anymore
Just there, all it says is
"No one made it. Prank call."
