about

(This song references the historic Rhode Island folktale regarding the family of Sarah Tillinghast, whose corpse was exhumed and treated as a “vampire”, but likely a case of tuberculosis…BRZOWSKI is a distant relative- VC)

lyrics

The Tillinghast’s tale of a barren orchard
Sunken eaves and mildewed gables
Rotten fruit + empty wombs
Decaying stables a hollow foundation in white Birch
Fitting prelude to a pine home resting
Historical Cemetery 14, a stone hill on Benefit St.
Religious freedom blooming in the field to provide
The wasting to your eldest 1st , a slow confounding
Until she passed and left a silhouette in the vernal earth

Thinner with time, the lines that streak your face
Mercies are Thine to share, a flock of moving shapes
Magic lantern theatre , awestruck amazed
When the rats descend upon your house in droves,
won’t you bring out your dead

We’ll gather around the mound and ingest dirt
This is the cure for the last several trees
As if anointment in stale blood from caved chest could not be enough
Leave me facedown and Jolly-Rogered, we can make it a spectacular showing
She came calling to visit this was our rosy angel of disease
She sits on my chest at night makes it hard to breathe, one by 1
Unsewn seeds, uncanny secretions
She’s gone with the worms, each one turned to pirouette

The barren orchard decides / which fruit will die in the vine

The Tillinghast’s tale of a barren Orchard
Sunken eaves and mildewed gables
Rotten Fruit _+ Empty wombs
Decaying stables a hollow foundation in white Birch
Fitting prelude to a pine home resting
Historical cemetery 14, a stone hill on Benefit St.
Religious freedom blooming in the field to provide
The wasting to your eldest 1st , a slow confounding
Until she passed and left a silhouette in the vernal earth
