I am content with the realities of my vague and blameless life, spent cooking, reading, listening to records and drinking beer with friends.
I do not have a swear jar at home. I have a bottle of whiskey at home. And I happen to like pretty dark music--about melancholy, and anger, and sex, and love and loneliness.
My name is David John Clapp, you will find a history of my writing here: http://fuckmylife-fuckmylife.blogspot.com/

..finally getting my fat ass above the bar and keeping it there. Progress is progress. Feels good.

You and I and the darkness we both know.

Feels like. The devil rode right up to my gates, maybe if I hadn’t stopped looking, maybe because I gave up. I let the darkness in and it took hold of you then like it has taken hold of me now. Nobody else. That’s on me. My dad. Maybe I could have done something. Or at least I should have. Five years of medical training and I was just as helpless as anyone else. I failed you. I let him take you from me. Your loving son. I’m still here. In the darkness we both know. I only hope now that you have found the light.

The memory is in the DNA.

Every cell in this body
has been replaced since I last saw you
But the memory is in the DNA
and through the vessels and veins
weaves a halo round the brain
every little hair knows your name

Every little hair knows your name

I started working out after you left us
I can do one hundred push-ups
I could probably do two if I was bored

I wrote some songs after you died
but nothing came out so I stopped
Every chord I tried was a miserable chord
Like an F minor 11 or an E flat major 7
It all sounds the same
Every chord knows your name

Every little hair knows your name
