I had a new album recorded, but binned it: the songs weren't right. But I still liked this track, which was an oddity already among the rejects, being the only synth-based song. So here it is, pulled out of the waste and polished up as a kind of farewell, for now at least, to the style of music that EI has played so far. I have something very different in mind for 2023.

The song is about feeling out of place and vulnerable in a strange place where you don't know the rules.


Here I am
Out of the protected zone
Feeling rather fragile and alone

And over there -
The inhabitants, pecking around in their private circle
Everyone owns a space, but not me

I have no mouth
I don’t know the word for bread, the word for soldier
Or how to roll round pitfalls and survive

This thin shell could so easily break


released December 24, 2022
As with all EI releases to date, EI wrote, played, sang, recorded, mixed and mastered everything. Traces of genius, duff techniques and carelessness are entirely mine.
