Lone Bell

by Mount Eerie

Mount Eerie is an Anacortes, Washington-based band fronted by Phil Elverum. Elverum is the principal member of the band, but he has collaborated with many other musicians on his records.

I imagined a clear bell echoing in the hills
Behind curtains of rain
In the hills behind the high school
So I opened the door and went there
Walking slowly in a white wall of fog
A silent more cautious awareness arises
Deeper in, the ground at my feet falls away
On a peak or in a swamp, all debris erased
Lone bell
Clear moon
Sky home
Distorted cymbals rise
What is left of the dissipating dream world I made?
Mid day, in the light, quiet echoes of a freezing moon
Distant bell, cold and clear
