The Last Pale Light In the West

Ben Nichols writes about the final piece of wisdom the judges gives out, naming it about the name of the book. The judge giving out the widom shows that even when demented  and insane, new things learned can shead light on different things you never thought about. Leaving the book with a piece of wisdom from the antagonist, shows that the blood meridian means something and that its always there over looking everyone.

The Kid

This song is the following of the main character of the book. The song tells the story of the main character’s beginning of his life and following him. The song gives the brief view over the kid’s life, following him at he moved out west when he was 14. The song goes with the story, showing that the world is harsh and whatever you do to help someone will always come back and punish you for what you did.

Davey Brown

Davey Brown was a song about the character in the book named David brown. David brown was a character that stood out by always making his way out of situations. David brown seeks help from other people from time to time. When people seek David brown to help them out, he either doesn’t help them at all or get something out of it for himself . The song Davey Brown  is meant to be lighthearted to reflect on the character’s foolish, disrespectful behavior towards others around him.

The Judge

The judge was the antagonist of the book, following the kid  through his journey around the west. The song displayed no lyrics but follows an unclear path through the madness in the judges mind, with distortion added onto the notes.

The Judge, which is a murky stroll through the mind of a madman, that sounds like an accordion being tuned through a distortion pedal
