Big Sky was originally released in 1997 on the Aroara Compilation, an album with tracks from a number of Cleveland bands including my band Foonspeeders. I wanted to give the song another spin to see if I could get it to sound closer to what I've always heard in my head. And yes, I started writing it in Montana.


Under a big sky you can see every star
Sometimes the sun and moon both share the same stage
You’re left to decide what size your troubles really are
Faced with eternity, a long unblinking gaze

Under a big sky a man can feel so small
Wondering how he fits into it all

And on the desert floor mountains rise from scarlet sand
Wind whispers history in confidential sighs
Your consciousness expands but still fits on the head of a pin
What seems a lifetime is just the blink of an eye

And when you think that you know everything
Puzzle pieces won’t fit anymore
And if you blink the picture changes again
And it leaves you wondering


from Foray, released May 1, 2017
