Big Wheel

lyrics

wrote the book
but I never read it
yeah turn the page
then forget it

term and condition
of daily life
well it's razor thin
and it's filled with light

turkish delight

spin the wheel with one hand free
to pick the ripe ones buried deep
shave them down to find the seed
with which to pluck and play the string

the string is taught it's caught between
a kite and a hole too far to see
an abstract vacuum sparkling clean
forever turning constantly

you know I need a great escape
big wheel turns and can't keep pace
stuck in gutter cannot shake
turn towards me, show your face

I'll show you the light
I'll show you the love

pack your bag
with hyper volume
unwind the lines
that stretch beyond you

you're out of line
and out of pocket
so let's wrap it up
time ain't stopping

yeah the clock keeps spinning
wheels keep rotating

spin the wheel with one hand free
to pick the ripe ones buried deep
shave them down to find the seed
with which to pluck and play the string

the string is taught it's caught between
a kite and a hole too far to see
an abstract vacuum sparkling clean
forever turning constantly

you know I need a great escape
big wheel turns and can't keep pace
stuck in gutter just can't shake
turn towards me, show your face

I'll show you the light

Will Gant Providence, Rhode Island

Like a trip to your weird relative’s unfinished basement, the music of Will Gant feels more curious than comfortable. The songwriter layers untamed vibrato over an electrified banjo, crafting a colorful, angular landscape of country twang and east coast art rock. Despite the dissonance, the songs’ warmth reveal a genuine love of bedroom recording. ... more
