Extemporaneous Experiment

LYRICS
A snake charming hippie with his hair cut long
Tried to claim he knew the song
Couldn’t really help being wrong
’cause I make them up as I go along
All of us in an extemporaneous
Experiment
I think he got what I meant

A voodoo princess said she can’t miss this
As we stood, staring over the precipice
An impromptu voodoo rendezvous
In the groove move prove the hypothesis
(can’t miss this precipice)
All of us in an extemporaneous
Experiment
I think she got what I meant

An angel of mercy appeared in the choir
As trumpets rang out for the town crier
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye! — royal decree
You create heaven on Earth, if you desire
All of us in an extemporaneous
Experiment
I think he got what I meant

The Man

LYRICS
Watching civilization turn to was
The Man want to live free
Without the right of responsibility
Not own-up to his society
Waiting for all to fall… inevitably
The Man rides off into battle
Leaving a bride in need of a rattle
It’s hard to ride high in the saddle
Knowing no one ever wins at war
For sure… no more… no never ever more
When The Man returns from battle
There are no tales to tattle
Now his time stops his clocks
Shoes and socks horizontal in a box

Childhood Dreams

LYRICS
Your teddy bear
Is coming apart at the seams
More than I can bear
Watching you unravel at the seems
See what childhood dreams mean
When you are the queen of the scene
See what childhood dreams mean
When you get to know the star of the show
Let’s make those dreams come true for you
A stitch in time saves yours and mine
Sowing up the seams, sowing up the seems…
Until we’ve restored childhood dreams
With teddy bear we’ll share a new heart
Cinnamon candy comes in handy for a start
Sowing up the seams, sowing up the seems…
Until we’ve restored childhood dreams
Your special teddy bear we can repair
We can fix any rip or any tear
Sowing up the seams, sowing up the seems…
Until we’ve restored childhood dreams
None the worse for the wear
Love,
Your Teddy Bear

Days

LYRICS
Lord, they say my days are numbered
Though I love each and every as my own
I must admit some are more preferred
From my heart and to the bone:
Thank you for spending a beautiful day
Wouldn’t rather have spent it any other way

On the days I have to walk this Earth
Try to carry my soul from my day of birth
Doing my best to the day I rest
For the day sacrificed to the quest:
Thank you for spending it this way
Wouldn’t rather have spent it any other day

Yes, thank you for this beautiful day
Sure glad you didn’t save it for a rainy day
Really, thank you! Wouldn’t want it any other way
So, I pray, and I pray:
Thank you for spending a beautiful day
Wouldn’t rather have spent it any other way

Festival Pier

LYRICS
The music’s on the pier
The time is growing near
Check? Check! Double check… soundcheck
Backstage pass in the grass
Scent of Mother Nature fills the air
It’s everywhere
All to the festival
Say, “Holiday!”
(All in all festival)
They’ll show you the ways to the best of days
When the band starts to play
Your troubles melt away
All the kids having fun watching girls dancing in the sun
Raise your hand if you understand
Raise your hand! Be counted
Raise your hand! Be heard
Raise your hand! Be anointed
Raise your hand! Spread the word
1, 2, 3 for glory
Aware on the Delaware
What did Delaware?
A New Jersey

Stormy

Rainstorm.mp3

LYRICS
Though the power of thunder is very frightening
A sour comparison to the bolt of lightening
Drop and roll! You’re on fire!
Rock and roll! You’re desire!

In the time it takes for the sound to roll ’round
I’ll be found belly-up on the ground
You’re deadly. A true knockout
Storming beauty… what nature’s about
Your biology as meteorology

1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi, 4 Mississippi, 5 Mississippi, 6 Mississippi
1 mile all the while I die
1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi, 4 Mississippi, 5 Mississippi, 6 Mississippi
Lordy me! More in the package than meets the eye
Iceberg tip… let ‘er rip

Song And Dance

LYRICS
Feel your superiority staring down on me
“Like whatever”
The rarity of your hilarity total insincerity
Defeat conceit

Bring on humility in humanity
Bring on humanity to this calamity
Humor elixir for social tumor
Song and dance can be our cure
… maybe our savior
… may be our “save your”

At your core, there’s strength in dignity
In the store of you humanity
Your loyalty to honesty
Is redeeming decency

Dancing free
Dreaming merrily

Two Parties

Shouldn’t 2 parties be twice as fun?

LYRICS
Before you know it
They’re right back at it again
Oh, no! They won’t quit
I don’t know where to begin

Like a coon cat that’s in heat
A viscous car fight all the night
Never ever admitting defeat
Hard to see when they put out your light

Get too close to the bluejay’s egg
They say you’ll feel the fear of flight
Hurry! Move it! Better shake a leg
Or peck your eye out, they just might

Tow little boys fighting over a toy
Head-to-head in a tug-of-war
Until the toy they destroy
Ummm… in a tantrum fit ’cause there is no more

Going to 2 parties
Pretty pity parties
Pretty petty pity parties

Two Parties.mp3

ABOUT THE SONG

The Ways Backs

LYRICS
Falling way back
Nostalgic attack

I don’t know… how about you
We’re you ’round in ’42
Going way back
… Nazi on a Jew?
Saying, “There’s nothing I can do”
Spending all of your time
Committing war crime

Got way back

When you spout your opinion
Cry like I’m choppin’ onion
Take it all back
Thinking everyone is your minion
Get way back
You’re a panic attack
Spending all of your time
Committing war crime

… and, the Horse You Road in on….

LYRICS
You can’t hide on the horse you ride….

Having trouble understanding
Where you’re landing
Instead of body commanding
You’re demanding
Pick up the pieces
Out inner peaces
Humanity thesis
You can take control
Of your human role / roll
The goal of your soul

Having trouble understanding
Where you’re landing
Instead of mind controlling
A mind of trolling
[chorus]

Having trouble understanding
Where you’re landing
Instead of spirit… endear it
… no one near it!
[chorus]

… and, the Horse You Road in on…. (video).mp4

… and, the Horse You Road in on…..mp3

ABOUT THE SONG
A song about heroin addiction. A street-name for heroin is “horse“. Up through the 1940’s, heroin and other opiates were given to race horses. In equines, heroin is a powerful central nervous system stimulant. The horse thinks it is dying and goes into a “flight response”.

Stride

LYRICS
Come on!
Just as a matter of fact
There’s plenty of room in the back
Take a ride for whatever you lack
Gettin’ the knack

Afford to climb on board
In stride, along for the ride

If you want to get the message blunt
There’s plenty of room up front
Take a ride for whatever you want
Roadtrip jaunt

If you want to climb on to the roof
Join the other professors aloof
Transcend with a woosh and a POOF!
Transcendental mental
Going transcendental mental
Next stop transcendental mental

Far From The Tree

LYRICS
If this ain’t is, I don’t know what is
Cotton-pickin’ time we mind our biz
The fruit rusted on the vine
The root rotted… less than fine

The fountain of youth don’t know to flow
Wonderin’ where all the water did go
The fruit rusted on the vine
The root rotted… less than fine

Not enough is and too much was
Was the problem puzzling us
The fruit rusted on the vine
The root rotted… less than fine

The question of when does depend
When we all end The End

Kingdom Come

LYRICS
Kingdom Come is coming
Kingdom comes when we’re undone
Kingdom Come, come
We are calling
The End of Days
Will change our ways
How the word plays

Promised Land is landing
Due to lack of understanding
Too damned demanding
We are calling
The End of Days
Will change our ways
How the word plays

Could it even be heaven
May be time to start believin’
Kingdom Come, come again
Soon we’re leaving
The End of Days
Will change our ways
How the word plays

Ahhh…..

Excite

LYRICS
In the morning
The sun is rising
What’s surprising
You find it boring
The life you excite
Excites life

Noon drams nigh
The sun is high
Wonder why
You don’t try
The life you excite
Excites life

In the evening
The sun is setting
What’s upsetting
You find it boring
The life you excite
Excites life

The dark of night
Need insight
Be the light
Shinning bright
The life you excite
Excites life
