about

A song with a dancy beat inspired by The Anansi Spider myths throughout many African cultures, & being careful what you wish for...

lyrics

Spiderhands,
I am surrounded.
Weaving dreams,
web in the sky.
Changing plans,
masking reality
to be the masters.

Don't don't don't don't don't don't
Don't write it down,
Down down down down down down
Down let me out,
Lay me, lay me,
Lay me in the ground,
Make me, make me,
Make me tell you now.

Spider Spell,
What are we casting?
Future self,
All that I'm asking for--
silky lines
weaving us, stranger days,
becoming hazy

Don't don't don't….

Is this now,
or is it memories?
Heaving breaths,
tangible fantasies
building up
love ceremonies
just to be beaten--

Down down down down down
Down let me out.
Don't don't don't don't don't
Don't write it down.
Lay me, lay me,
Lay me in the ground.
Make me, make me,
Make me tell you now….

Spiderhands…

Don't….

Make me tell you now…
Don't make me tell you now.
