What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World is the seventh studio album from The Decemberists, released on January 20, 2015. The album’s title comes from a line in the song “12/17/12”, a reference to the date of Barack Obama’s speech in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and lead singer Colin Meloy’s conflicting feelings about the shooting and his happy personal life.

The song, “Easy Come, Easy Go” is my choice from this album.

Limber Jack, he landed on his back
Was bedding on the netting when the rigging went slack
Was a moonless night, the stars are lending light
She’s leering in the mirror when the road it broke right

‘Cause you never really know
When the whistle’s gonna blow
You never really know
Easy come and easy go

He was a stand-up gent, but no one knew his bent
And all the little bones that he hid in his vent
She was the come-on queen, too along the scene
He found her in the shower, she’d been gone for seven weeks

‘Cause you never really know
When the whistle’s gonna blow
You never really know
Easy come and easy go

‘Cause you never really know
When the whistle’s gonna blow
You never ever know
Easy come and easy go

Oh Limber Jack, his name is on the plaque
His mother is another that will never get him back

Songwriters: Colin Meloy

  1. Yes the song got my attention right away and as I read the words it got even better. I tried something different with the shells in the picture and they ended up dominating, but I love the seahorses themselves. Thank you, Jim.
