Great Lake Swimmers – Catcher Song lyrics

Well the ropes are taut
And the stories have all been caught
There's a frost-cover drawn on the shore
And the catcher still seems to want more

Through the real and through the unreal
Not what you see but what you feel
And what transpires here
And what I hear transpires

And it falls, falls, falls
And it falls, falls, falls
It rises up, it rises up
And it falls, falls, falls

I just want to break even
I just want to pass on through
Like a ghost through a household tune
Under the light of the early dusk hues

Navigating and dealing extremes
Is not what at first it seems
And I keep my ship tight and true
For the next time that I will see you

And it falls, falls, falls
And it falls, falls, falls
It rises up, it rises up
And it falls, falls, falls

    Ah, I've figured out that (duh maybe) this song is based on The Catcher in the Rye - not "about" it, mind you, but I believe "The Catcher..." and the themes thereof are being used metaphorically. It's been many years since I read the book, but I almost want to over again just to understand this (beautiful, emotive) song more! I think it certainly has to do with the creative process, and the feeling of needing to keep catching that ethereal thing any artist is always after. Well done, GLS - love it!
