This is a musical ode to Tom Waits and lyrical ode to Rainer Maria Rilke, whom Chris had been reading while staying in Seattle in the summer of 1996.

"Solitude for Two"
words and music by Chris Knudson

Walk into the sun inside your rain
Paint a piece of driftwood with your blood.
Find the happy medium insane
And make it every day to become world.
Gonna make it,
Gonna make it,
Make it every day to become world.

Make it solitude for two every day
You and you, and I and I all the way.

Eat the rosebud from your inner child
Roll that rowdy rock back under your bed.
Wash off and away your sins in vain
And make it every day to become world.
Gonna make it,
Gonna make it,
Make it every day to become world.

Make it solitude for two every day
You and you, and I and I all the way.

Build some wheels to cruise around your brain
Learn to step away from your hey-heyday.
Plant the seeds and grow some rainbow bones
And make it every day to become world.
Gonna make it,
Gonna make it,
Make it every day to become world.

Make it solitude for two every day.
You and you, and I and I all the way.
