    This song was inspired by Hurricane Gulch on the Parks Highway between Fairbanks and Anchorage. That, and a dream I had 13 years ago.

lyrics

TREACHERY
by Britt K. Arnesen

When I last saw the light it was shining through the trees
Out on the other side of Trouble Canyon Creek
Where the cliffs are high the chasm's dark and deep
I don’t know why I thought I could make that leap

Oh treachery what I have I done to me?
I took your chance and grabbed your broken branch now I'm swinging by my feet
When I fall and shatter all my dreams
I'm only blaming me and my treachery

In my ravine muddy water rushes by
I cling to rocks and logs whatever I can find
When my strength erodes I'll drown in misery
I only hope I'll wash out to the sea

Oh treachery what I have I done to me?
I took your chance and grabbed your broken branch now I'm swinging by my feet
When I fall and shatter all my dreams
I'm only blaming me and my treachery

Washed ashore a sandbar in the sun
I had visions of your shadow on the run
But the ravens thought my eyeballs looked like chewing gum
Now I’m blind and you’re still deaf and dumb

Oh treachery what I have I done to me?
I took your chance and grabbed your broken branch now I'm swinging by my feet
When I fall and shatter all my dreams
I'm only blaming me and my treachery

Oh Treachery
I’m only blaming me
