The two newest postcards were inspired by the 2004 song "The Butcher," which is from the Emblems album, and "Giving It All Away," from 2007's Last Light.
"The Butcher" is the first image that ever popped into my head, pushing me in the direction of this project. The song kind of haunts me and has brought me to near-tears before. In it, the cello sounds like a ghost. I don't know if that makes sense, but it's a relief to finally have it on paper.
