The fall, the fall, the fall
I keep stumbling back

Ivory bone opera glass
Angles of attack
You heard blood was thick, brothers and sisters
But ya don't know where anybody's at
Time was a bust
You thought you'd better be tough
Nobody gets past
The trembling wire

And all eyes on you now, on you
We're all holding our breath
All eyes on you now, on you (The fall)
We're still holding our breath

We all break a little
We all break a little
We all break a little when we fall
And everybody keeps saying, "Get up, get up"

The fall, the fall, the fall
"Go on, get up"
The fall, the fall, the fall

I think this is Gregory Isakov and his growing band at the top of their game, so it is not a surprise that it is the first track on his latest release, Appaloosa Bones.  We have come to know and expect incredible production, ephemeral themes, lyrical impressionism, and a consistent sense of restraint and melancholy from Gregory. These traits are on full display in The Fall. 
Yet another wonderful artist that I probably wouldn't have stumbled upon unaided by RP.
sounds good
