I wrote this song in and about my time backpacking around Alaska, particularly the part of my trip that took place near the glacier in Kennicott/McCarthy. Eating salmon and squirrels, and spending every second I could warming up in the bar with the rest of the lost souls were my favorite past time activities. I thought of the concept of "slowing down to a glacial pace" while contemplating the meaning behind Isaac Brock's Glacial Pace label... someone should get this demo into his hands somehow.


If you don't care then I don't care cause what's the point of caring if it gets you nowhere? slow it down to a glacial pace creak and crawl with cold bones of ice and stone let out a shake and an avalanche moan a rock slide to carry me home everyone comes here with a death wish but i'm just looking for a friend to share a drink with if you don't scare them they'll let you be she said the night that bear had us shaking at the knees he slowed us down to a glacial pace and stood tall so we held hands till he decided to leave caught in the rain by the kennecott mine I made my way but it took some time I miss the winter and the northern lights I wish that they'd come out tonight I hope she's there at the bar cause I never got the chance to say goodbye and tomorrow i'm bound for the kenai I'm catching the ship to kodiak island the 151 warms the bones at night i keep it in my pack it's strong and light weight got enough smokes to kill a mountain goat I got a notebook fishing hooks and my lucky pole the lower 48 are too packed a place I need the mountains the fresh air and open space I need a place to be wild and free but I bring all my humanly shit with me if I could only leave it behind and walk away if I could make a spot in the woods and just stay if I could make time to finally unwind (chorus)
