lyrics

GIACOMO’S ASSISTANT
giacomo’s assistant
she kept them wrapped right around her finger
pulling strings the way no other girl could do
she’ll read you her scars
like she’s reading dostoevsky
you try to keep the names straight
but still you can’t let go
giacomo’s assistant
she loved francisco’s paintings
she called him little priest
for the way he held his hands
throwing rocks out in the courtyard
and of course one hit his forehead
and it bled so much the other kids
were sure that he was dead
and all the world
it’s laid out there right before her
she can see it
but she can’t reach out
and touch the things she loves
and nothing is real
they’re just stories we keep repeating
repeating over and over
until they all come true
and all the world
it’s laid out there right before her
she can see it
but she can’t reach out
and touch the things she loves

Finding the thread that leads from The Cars to The Beastie Boys to Van Halen to Prayers, he tells a long, beautiful, cross-cultural, multi-generational story. Hollier’s band King Ropes is doing much the same thing. ... more
