Dustin Windish

“Song for the Mullica” is a reflection written by Dustin Windish of NorthEast Corners & The Quixote Project. Growing up in The Pine Barrens of New Jersey, the Mullica River has played a pivotal role in the formation of NorthEast Corners. The song ponders the changing of life through loss and aging while reconciling with the fact that although the river seems permanent, it is never the same water.

♪ Mullica, you sit and you wonder ♪

♪ How long has it been

(birds chirping)

♪ Since I've come out here

♪ To sit down beside you, old friend ♪

♪ You sing so lovingly to me, your ripples and wind ♪

♪ You laugh at my troubles and this I know ♪

♪ Though I must admit

♪ You've watched me grow older before you, unfolding my skin ♪

♪ That I use to belove and behold you, ♪

♪ I've told you, has aged

♪ Not as thin

♪ Though it's strange how it seems to me ♪

♪ For you that nothing has changed ♪

♪ But you're not the same river that I'm walking in ♪

(birds chirping)

♪ Mullica, you call out to me like my grandmother did ♪

♪ How dare you stand there before me, you fool, and so stiff ♪

♪ Mullica, you call out to me just like my brother did ♪

♪ How dare you stand there before me, you fool, and so stiff ♪
