Townes wrote some of the darkest music that has ever been written. It's sad, devastating, that all that despair is based on truth - truth too frightening for most people to think about because they are small-minded and weak. But the solution, insofar as there is one (which is not far), Townes also expressed - to value the positive experiences and conscious awareness one does have. That surely includes Townes' music, which has changed my life.

Chilling, beautiful, stark--pure existential genius. This is the real deal, muchachos.

As long as I'm sitting in this, the middle of all major wildfires in Colorado, waiting to be evacuated, of course, I can't stop listening to this song. I can't explain why it's so comforting.

this is townes most emotional piece in my opinion. unlike other songs he wrote as open ended to where anyone could relate, i feel this one is truly about his life.
