when the medicine man comes, he comes in full force

and I'm finally taking that medicine
the ones you kept telling me to
thanks for pushing me that way
even though it took a few years

and tess, she's getting better
and so is her man
I guess they've been together
for quite a while now

I heard it was their anniversary
not too long ago
and that just got me thinking
when would it be ours?

but I guess that doesn't matter
'cause you're better off
and everybody's telling me
calling you dirty

I should be glad that you're OK
I know in some way I am
remember that time I rang,
maybe a year ago?

I was sure you'd gone off
I was sure...
I was on the train and
I thought it was you
we were stuck a few hours
so I hate to say it
I was late for a date.

440hz: the universal frequency of a traffic jam

I am going to propose an experiment,
the results of which may be astounding
the experiment can be performed using only
household items
do not proceed if you
have a heart condition
do not proceed if you
are experiencing a high tides
do not expect that you
will not be held accountable for your actions
the experiment requires of you
one cheap acoustic guitar
tuned accordingly
a bass guitar would do
the experiment requires that you
step into the traffic
into the heavy traffic
feel the strings
the thick steel strings
strike a soft buzzing "A"
440hz: the universal frequency of a traffic jam

daniel & page thirty-six

The Ballad of Daniel Mephistopholes and his Awkwardly Shaped Cat, Colloquially Known as Earwig (tentative title)

well Daniel was a gypsy boy, born & bred I guess
ere sixteen he spread his wings and took his mother's chest

he stole away to foreign lands and ventured to be free
but none escape a gypsy curse; no one, not even he


o Daniel, o Daniel,
you set the night on fire
o Daniel, o Daniel,
you made your mother cry


the gypsy king said gypsy things and spoke a gypsy verse
'til Daniel in a shallow grave they made his love a curse

young Daniel saw it coming and he couldn't help but laugh
"voodoo dolls and fairy tales mean nothin' to me now"


o Daniel, o Daniel,
you set the night on fire
o Daniel, o Daniel,
you made your mother cry


when Daniel first met Peggy Sue she was lookin' fine
well rounded breasts, a pretty face and those American thighs

they fell in love at once and he offered her a dance
a penny for a kiss and a ring to hold her hand

but Daniel was impatient and the night before they wed
he came home too early with Peggy in another's bed

Page Thirty-Six

this is page thirty-six
and I'm feeling fine
in ten minutes though
I might go back in time
never was there a page
so clean or crisp
and just a touch of black
if you held it up to light
page thirty-six, what have I done?
taken your purity
mixed it with mine
I don't think I'll ever
see another like this
its creamy complexion
and somehow poultry smell
I miss my old thirty-six
who always treated me well
and I'll cry for you forever
and I'll never spend a dime
a page like you
I could never see
anything more sublime
oh, hi there thirty-seven
what are you doing tonight?

Oh Lordy Lordy (improv) & The Bobcat Blues

This song wasn't actually intended to be as crass as it might seem. Too bad.

video

Oh Lordy Lordy (improv)

my sister got raped
by a murderer
my sister got her cherry
all popped
my sister ain't got no
protection
my sister went and asked
the lordy

she said
oh, lordy lordy
won't you give me some freedom?

oh, lordy lordy
won't you give me some love?

I've been in this world eighteen years
I ain't been fucked once before
but now, I got a baby on the way

oh, lordy lordy
give me some freedom

oh, lordy lordy
what should I do?

'cause those fuckers
take me down
when I try to kill this baby
I don't want you any more
I never wanted you in the first place
but you mother fuckers had to do it didn't ya?
you raped me like a baby raped a sausage..
fucker!


...And here's a somewhat nicer one for all you chumps out there

Bobcat Blues

No I can't stand it no more
when I sat down to read the morning paper
I hear they're building another mall
now I don't want to be one of those haters
but baby won't you hear me out

they got roads
they got the trains
they got high-rise buildings
water mains
but baby when it all comes down
just where, where we gonna go?

I see limousines
and some buses
pourin' out the old hotel
the driver, he ain't nervous
as he plows into a gaol cell

No I just can't stand it no more
when I sat down to read the morning paper
I hear they're building another mall
now I don't want to be one of those haters
but baby won't you hear me out

I got knife wounds in my back
I got the needle in the arm
and I'm just one of the many
that they raped, tortured and stole

where the river meets the sea
and the sun touches ocean
when moon and sun unite
and the month is at an end
how you step upon that plane
and I'm waiting for the train
why I never told you this
and you didn't want to know
who can say that I am wrong
'cause I knew it all along
where the river meets the sea
I'll be waiting there alone

give those boots away

Chelsea kneels down
no combat boots today
she's kneeling in the sand
and praying to the sun
her dress is ripped at the back
but she likes it that way
and I enjoy it too
no photographs today
please, I only want you
and the sea rages higher
to carry us away
oh, Chelsea, give those boots away
