This video won “best narrative” category in the Lexington Film League’s 2010 Music Video Showcase. This song, Aftermath, is from the Paul K release A Wilderness of Mirrors. Lyrics: Oh, in the aftermath, we started feeling bad-We lost the house and land, and everything we had-First the pigs and cows, overnight it seems-My fever was my friend, my sick waking dream-We couldn’t work ‘er right, started to drink and fight-And then the lumps appeared, on our arms and ears-I lashed out at God, told him he did me wrong-He said, “you’re just a tyke, I’ll show you what it’s like, you think you’ve had it rough, you think your life is tough, well, I’ve given you a gift, until you’re cold and stiff, you’re going to feel my love” © Paul K.
