Normal History Vol. 539: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 35-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Between Livermore And Tracy
He’s got the white coat, no stethoscope
Cause the movement to die out
Several times over
Walking the walls
A cardiologist, white coat, no stethoscope
Between Livermore and Tracy 

On rotation
Uneventful, one uneventful night
Just one uneventful night 

In the hall, he wouldn’t know left from right
He’s got the white coat, no stethoscope
Between Livermore and Tracy 

In rotation
Just one, just one uneventful night
Just one night of sleep
Between Livermore and Tracy 

Can you hear delirium with that machine
or is it just me?

Between delirium and quick clarity 

Delirium
