bird dream of the olympus mons

i lost everything i ever hadspeed leaving without warning
i need some place
to sleep tonight
blowing in the rocking
of the pine
speed leaving without warning
the sunlight is going
into the mountain
i will crawl
into the mountain
sun shines in the rusty morning
skyline of the olympus mons
i think about it sometimes
sun shines in the rusty morning
once i had a good fly
into the mountain
i will fall

-black francis, 1991.

That is what i feel now. I want to be back on Mars. Hiding in my mountain. Hiding in my cave.

I got Morphine’s YES in the mail today. I had one other of their records, but wanted more. So i tried another one. I really like this one. I think much more than GOOD. I want to play a two string bass. Maybe I’ll take off two of them on my Flying V. Maybe not. I dont have anything else to say. I am not going to post a supository of words on the attacks. My thoughts have been stated and Elle definately clarified anything I left out. I concur with her 100% She stated everything quite wonderfully. Always amazes me. Stop sending me those damn forwards. For the love of god- Do something. But dont forward a fucking email to me once more. Revolution, up it.

christmas at the zoo

if only everyone understood the ways of the flaming lips, we would be living in a much more happy worldTheir wasn’t any snow on Christmas eve and I knew what I
should do, I thought I’d free the animals all locked up at the zoo
I opened up the fence where the peacocks were, the lamas were
unleashed the snakes and seals could all get out, but they
Refused to leave….
All of the animals agreed they’re not happy at the zoos
But they preferred to save themselves, they seemed to think
they could…

The elephants, orangutans, all the birds and kangaroos all said
thanks but no thanks man, but to be concerned is good…

It started to snow on Christmas Eve in the middle of the night
walkin through the state park zoo and everything is white…

-W. Coyne (1995)

no surrender

We busted out of class had to get away from those fools
We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school
Tonight I hear the neighborhood drummer sound
I can feel my heart begin to pound
You say you’re tired and you just want to close your eyes and follow your dreams down

We made a promise we swore we’d always remember
No retreat no surrender
Like soldiers in the winter’s night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now young faces grow sad and old and hearts of fire grow cold
We swore blood brothers against the wind
I’m ready to grow young again
And hear your sister’s voice calling us home across the open yards
Well maybe we could cut someplace of our own
With these drums and these guitars

Blood brothers in the stormy night with a vow to defend
No retreat no surrender

Now on the street tonight the lights grow dim
The walls of my room are closing in
There’s a war outside still raging
you say it ain’t ours anymore to win
I want to sleep beneath peaceful skies in my lover’s bed
with a wide open country in my eyes
and these romantic dreams in my head
