TUNE James Carson - Calico
Calico is a song about hiding your problems and hoping they'll disappear. Calico is in reference to the calico hoods prisoners would have to wear when placed in solitary confinement. Despite that rather bleak description the sing is actually quite melodic and summery. I wrote it that way to play up to the theme of hiding your feelings or drawing avail over your problems. If I were to describe the song sonically, I'd say its like Elliott Smith fronting T-Rex... does that make any sense?... maybe it will when you hear it.
