Phantom Fingers

When you look back on a decade and what it means
And the second chance you traded for a bag of beans
Who’d have thought that the old man had so little to steal?
Just the rings on the phantom fingers you still feel

If you’d come here yesterday
I’d have traded you the world
For nothing at all
And still felt I was winning

Here’s someone I know from a bar of soap
Kept his hands so clean they were scarcely there
Seems one day they got to their master’s throat
Tore it out like the tab on a can of beer

Celluloid lies to me every night
And the cutting room floor’s no judge of wrong and right
If it sounds implausible then it’s probably real
Like the touch of the phantom fingers you still feel


from The Scottish Play, released November 15, 2020
