We’d heard a while back that Eddie Vedder would be making an appearance in the new “Twin Peaks,” but now, it’s not just an appearance, he’s also contributing to the soundtrack.
During this year’s Ohana Fest, Vedder premiered a song that we now know is going to be a part of the soundtrack. According to The Playlist:
“The track, called “Out of Sand,” is definitely “Twin Peaks”-y. With lines like “offered the hand of a disembodied man” and “dead by dessert, victim or witness,” it has David Lynch written all over it.”
The Playlist also noted that although Jack White isn’t listed in the cast, the cover of Vedder’s record reveals the tune was recorded Jack White’s Third Man Studios, with a date listed as June 10, 2016, which is 25 years to the day since the finale of Season 2 aired.
Season 3 of “Twin Peaks” is set to premiere on Showtime sometime in 2017. In the meantime, check out the mysterious lyrics to Vedder’s new song below.
Can’t climb to heaven on the cross
one big promise drained the blood from my heart
Came a message in the dark
offered the hand of a disembodied man
While I still had the chance
but now its gone, gone
and I am who I am
who I was will never be again
running out of sand
I stare at my reflection to the bone
blurred eyes look back at me… full of blank sympathy so, so close
right roads not taken, fortunes forsaken
dropped like a fossil in stone
a drunk octopus wants to fight
fearful of dreams, there’ll be no sleep tonight
fine at dinner, dead by dessert
victim or witness, we’re gonna get hurt
fragile existence, with echoes of wrath
i can’t stop the bleeding nor the tears from thine eye
there’s another is somewhere w/ much better lives
With God as our witness but he won’t testify
Oh now its gone..gone
and I am , who I am
Who I could’ve been I’ll never have the chance
Running out of sand.
