Appreciation: ks Rhoads – Orphaned

I think ks Rhoads is a great arranger and I love the way he manages to create such hooky wordless chorus melodies on tracks like Orphaned and Wilderness. But he’s also a lyricist who is able to conjure up rich imagery with just a few words.

I float in a basket
A coyote alone
Get born into a union
But you die on your own
A bear on the iceberg
Is burning in the sun
What if go behind the curtain
And see no one?

Are we orphaned?

Got lost on a planet
We don’t understand
What started in the water
Is stranded on the sand
They live in the shadows
And they lie about the sun
I satellite the black hole
Between the brilliant and Babylon

Are we orphaned?
