about

In the final act, the wanderer's despair over love lost finally gives way to resignation. We witness his return to the icy stream – his unfailing friend – where he finds peaceful escape (by drowning himself).

The music is a re-imagination of The Mitchells' song entitled "Tootchache," which appears on their first studio recording (Bird Feather EP, 2012). This new arrangement captures the calm resignation of the wanderer, and nods to the gentle vibe of the final song in the original DSM (Des Baches Wiegenlied). The reappearance of the stream – the alternating eighth-note figure from Act 1 – is carried in various forms by guitars and bells. The story closes with a simple ascending and descending bass line, which resolves warmly and peacefully.

lyrics

When you say
When you notice
That your ghost
In the door way
Is a double
In the bar
And you fall
Through a table

In the Dunes
In the doorway
When you yell
And you run
When you wake
With the Sun
With a bottle
With a gun

Its cold on Ice and
Its going on days
When your howling years become
Your howling does

When you say
When you notice
That your ghost
Is the door way
Its a double
Its a bar
And you fall
Through a table

Its cold on Ice and
They don’t kill
When its going on days
And they don’t come

Oooooooooooh
