Song of the day: His Truth Is Marching On

Didn't listen to much new music this year, but one CD I did buy and enjoy was Haughty Melodic by Mike Doughty. Mike was the lead singer for Soul Coughing and since then has released a number of solo CDs. How do you pronounce Doughty, anyway? Should it rhyme with "haughty"? Or maybe it's Doe-tee? Or Doe-ga-tee? No clue.

Nice CD, I recommend it. This isn't necessarily my favorite track, but it is lyrically interesting. Discuss.

His Truth Is Marching On
They say that God is great
They say that God is love
And I believe them
Don't fear the random fate;
I trust the hand of the almighty and the infinite

His truth
Is marching on
His truth is marching on

Let me know your enormity and my tininess and
Help me see your infinity and my finite-ness and

I'm fucking starved for love
I deeply need to feel connection with the infinite
I want the nourishment
I need to drink it just like water, and it will sustain me

My heart is yearning now
My arms are aching for some girl or other, didn't want me
And still I need you more
Need you to soothe this searing sadness, and the nameless gnawing

the word doughty is pronounced like doubt, but I think he pronounces his name like dough.

At least, when he was on NPR in May, the interviewer called him DOE - TEA
