Dusty – ’11-#5

I think it’s turning back around
And I think I like it
I think it’s turning back around
Though I don’t know why it is

I think it’s turning back on me
I’m down on the upside
I think it’s turning back on me
Now, I’m on the good ride

And nothing’s gonna put me out
It’s backing down and under
I’m down on the upside, now
It’s turning back around
Turning back around

I think it’s coming on the wind
Just like you said it
I think it’s coming on the wind
And I’m gonna let it

I think it’s turning back on me
Everything’s easy
I think it’s turning back on me
Everything’s real to me

Nothing’s gonna put me out
It’s backing down and under
I’m down on the upside, now
It’s turning back around
Turning back around
Turning back around

I think it’s coming on the wind
Just like you said it
I think it’s coming on the wind
And I’m gonna let it

Nothing’s gonna put me out, yeah
It’s backing down and under
I’m down on the upside, now
It’s turning back around
Turning back around
Turning back around

I’m turning back around
Turning back around
Turning back around
Turning back around
Turning back around

This week’s Illustration Friday theme is Dusty, and I chose the song Dusty by Soundgarden as my inspiration. For some reason I think of a tornado when I hear this song. Another cool song about tornadoes is by Drive-By Truckers – love this song.

And, I am fascinated by tornadoes. I have been ever since I was a kid. Wizard of Oz and all that. My mom used to have us hide in the basement on a blanket with our toys and a portable radio. She’d crack open the windows upstairs, as that was the folklore back then…if you didn’t your house would explode. I’ve been known to chase a few when I hear reports of them on the radio. But I’ve only ever seen one, and that was out the window at my work.
