Normal History Vol. 447: 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 33-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Strong White Male
I want to go beyond the weather
or not at all

I dig myself in deeper
and you want to know why I talk this way
this way

Strong white male
here’s a world for you
and most of us are the ones to lose

Your talk is in the sun and rain
and mine is in the want and hate

Strong white male
here’s a world for you
and most of us are the ones to lose

My cup is empty
thanks again

Your talk is in the sun and rain
and mine is in the want and hate

Strong white male
here’s a world for you
and most of us are the ones to lose
