Wild beats

Slide guitars ring out at dawn, along with larks that sit on a lonely branch and provide the harmonium’s vocal.

Slide guitars ring out at dawn!
Slide guitars ring out at dawn!
Slide guitars ring out at dawn!

African drums vibrate at dusk, as does the loud purring of lions after eating a springbok.

African drums vibrate at dusk!
African drums vibrate at dusk!
African drums vibrate at dusk!

Crazy dreams

My eyes close!

I am eating a fancy meal with Hitler and Jesus.

My eyes close!

I am making love to Ayn Rand. NOOOOOOOO!
The philosopher has now metamorphosed into a movie star.
I am now making love to Marilyn Monroe,
YESSSSSSSSS!

My eyes close!

I am walking down a bland shopping street where only
homeless men are the managers of the shops
and rich entrepreneurs stack shelves.

My eyes close!

A strange hideous animal is following me across a foggy bog.
It smells of greed and death, the animal not the bog.
It is wearing a grey suit, it has hardly any hair and
It defiantly has no soul.
It is an English politician.

My eyes close!

I drink a glass of brandy with Napoleon,
a Shot of Vodka with Stalin,
a bottle of whisky with Churchill,
and a cellar of red wine with Mussolini.

My eyes close!

I wake up and I have to go to work and get
through another day in the dull, blandness
of the 21st century.

My eyes close!

The most important thing in life

With out it what are we? We are a decaying corpse rotting in mud!
Warm, crusty, hard, soft,
bread is life!
Green, red, yellow, white, the vegetable is life.
O food, food, food
With out it what are we? We are a decaying corpse rotting in mud!
Juicy, succulent meat and firm, fresh fish.
O food, food, food,
You make us happy, love, sad, ill, upset, ecstatic, glad even regretful,
You make us feel life!
O food, food, food
With out it what are we? We are a decaying corpse rotting in mud!
