The Great Evaporation

Table of Love by Gille and Marc

Dark forces want us to believe
they can measure our worth
with numbers preceded by symbols of currency
or numbers followed by years

Rivers and oak trees they also think
can be reduced to equations
and gods require sacrifice
and death is more end than beginning

But all the power they think they have
is more illusion than fact
and all of our enemies are on our side
and all of our failures success
and all of the fear that drove us to this place
will evaporate into laughter

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
