The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2

[Verse 1]
I took my shirt off in the yard
No one saw that the skin on my shoulders was golden
Now it's not
My shirt's back on
I forgot my songs
The glow is gone
My gliding body stopped

[Verse 2]
I could not get through September without a battle
I faced death, I went in with my arms swinging
But I heard my own breath
And I had to face that I'm still living
I'm still flesh
I hold on to awful feelings
I'm not dead
There's no end
My face is red
My blood flows harshly
My heart beats loudly
My chest still draws breath
I hold it
I'm buoyant, ooh ooh
There's no end

The Glow Pt. 2 is the title track and 2nd song on the profound Phil Elvrum's 2001 K Records release. The song begins with a distorted and emotional segway from the preceding track, "I Want Wind to Blow." It quickly changes as a strummed acoustic guitar pounds out of the distortion, accompanied by Elvrums voice. The song is apropriately the title track, as it captures Evrum's ability to use acoustic and electric instruments to create a lofi holy grail.
