Sometimes you step in good shit
I remember YOU

An introspective, retrospective look at life. There just isn't time to read all the books.


All the trees I never climbed
And all the leaves they left behind
Keep adding rings to mark out time

All the letters I never sent
And all the dimes I never spent
I wonder where they really went

Come to find, all the obstacles I climbed
Were only in my mind
When I look at all the paths I never took
They're drawn across the pages of the books
I never read

All the verbs I never said
Conjugate inside my head
Stitched together with a common thread

The nouns I'm not remembering
No person, place, or anything
Leave me with not much to sing

Come to find, all the obstacles I climbed
Were only in my mind
When I look at all the paths I never took
They're drawn across the pages of the books
I never read

All the verbs and all the nouns
All the freaks and all the clowns
All the smiles and all the frowns
All the cops and all the crooks
ALl the kings and all the rooks
Are all in the final chapter of all the books
I never read

2008
Remember Bat Lenny, they wrote/produced some really unique alternative songs with deep introspective lyrics usually. Stegor was also a valued Pipeline contributor I believe. You'll never hear another song quite like this, it comes and goes, in and out, short and long, up and down then it settles and finds solid ground as the Rock kicks in. It's a very interesting arrangement, with angelic ambiance mingling alongside a pretty, tapping percussive melody. The vocal sits well, it's natural and has a poignant clarity. A musing song with easy to understand lyrics, some emotive peaks and just that feel of quality. Come back Bat Lenny, you have fans here - Verity


I remember YOU
A most adventurous, creative band, I was pleased to work with Greg (Stegor) some years back. You may remember him as the resident IAC sketch artist.


Sometimes you step in good shit
The first time I ever heard this, many years ago, I knew immediately it was the absolute epitome of the best shit I'd ever step in. Now all these years latter I'm very glad I once again have the great fortune of stepping in it again ... may it never leave my shoe again ...
