During the spring thaw of somebody's year (a numerical expression) they came across it. It languished within a cave they say. In a cave of ice and snow it lay. There in its birth and burial. Buried, but not by human hand or spade or machine. Not cast into an excavated pit or a deliberate grave. It was covered by the puissance of time. A thousand years was all that separated it from sun, from wind, from war, from change, from ears. A thousand years move was all that they had. The heart that pounds and the bones that were crushed; forever and ever their song will be sung. A thousand years move is all that they had. It was all they had to go on, these people who had never been known or forgotten. It was more than we expected, we people who get what we are gotten. This new found proof in blood on bark and etchings in stone. The existence of a people. This history in song left as a reminder (or maybe a premonition) of human struggle, accomplishment and celebration, and eventual extinction. If a thousand years is all they had, well, we should be so lucky.

This interpretation was recorded live at South End Studios on September 10, 2002 by Robert and Darren Dyck (a pair of wizards). Our most sincere gratitude to Dr. Shaun Mason, Prof. Jordan Perry, & Mike Spindloe Esq. for your impeccable performances here and in the excavation and decoding of the artifact. Additional thanks to Saskatoon, the letter ď, and Margie for her basement and pastries.
