about

A tribute to the master of song craft himself and the strange, disturbing mystery of fame. The chorus shouts out to the "Zemer-man" (song-man), rather than Zimmerman, in deference to the wishes of Rav Bob.

lyrics

In your Humble design you’ve reflected the sunlight
Great Blue Crown of Majesty
I’m guarded against sorrow by your subtle smile
And I’m Planted Like a Tree

Sing to me sweetly through that cedar woodwind
The branch of prophecy
Rock of Ages Syncopated
Shake it up and shake it free

Turn Those Eyes upon me, Zemer-man
Turn Those Eyes upon me
I’m Still waiting to see your soul again
Shine for All to See

Ready is as ready does
Split a hole in the mud
When you get high you go down with a thud without fear
Of the sight of your own blood

Keep your eyes open the captain’s coming
Skin glowing like the sea
If it hasn’t already or even if it has
He’ll remove your suffering

Fame has whittled you away to nothing
That’s the ideal way to be
A sliver of moonlight reminds you of something
How you once used to be

Turn Those Eyes upon me, Zemer-man
Turn Those Eyes upon me
I’m Still waiting to see your soul again
Shine for All to See
