nobody has his own place in the back. he keeps it in order, a neat little shack and every day he goes down to the beach looking for a clam or an oyster to eat. he said, "i'm not unhappy, there is nothing to fear. i'm just trying to disappear" he said, "i know what i'm doing, i know who i am. i'm the number one fan of the invisible man" he's covered in sweat from his head to his toes but what he's looking for nobody knows. it's not there and it's not here, he said "i'm just trying to disappear" nobody stood in the middle of the street where he drew a chalk outline around his feet then he smiled and lifted his face to the sky flapping his arms like he was trying to fly. he said, "i may not make it to that great beyond but i'll never be found with my feet on the ground. i'm pretty far gone but i'm still here. can nobody help me to disappear?" nobody sat on a bench in the park. waiting for the day to turn into dark. then he waved goodbye to the setting sun and did a little dance when the day was done. he said, "the shadows loom, it will be night soon. and the stars will shine over a rising moon. i have nothing to lose, i have nothing to fear. i'm just trying to disappear". nobody went for a walk in the rain. i lent him my boots and my walking cane. the cane they found hanging from a tree. but those boots will never walk back to me. he's not far off but he's nowhere near. that's obvious but it's not very clear. nobody talks, nobody hears. he said, "i'm just trying to disappear"

The Last Dance

@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
