Regarding how I feel today about that little legal proceeding I mentioned at the end of the 'Afterword' ...
Lyrics:My Pandora radio feed piped this gem into my ears and it was perfect in the moment. I was also reminded how hard the Darklands album grabbed me when I first bought it (1989?), though I cannot recall a precise reason why beyond the general brilliance of the songwriting. Darklands was my personal introduction to the Reid brothers' band and was released 17 years prior to Stoned and Dethroned, which was the album on which These Days was included. (1987 vs. 1994).
These days I feel immune
To all the sadness and the gloom
If things fall into place
Get onto the right side of grace
Those things seem so far away
I could take that walk
I’ll just stay where I am
