new dawn
the world awakes
another blank page
today will be….
snatched away like all the rest
why rail against time?
you liked time when it was on yourside
you liked time when it ran away with your “best” years
you liked time when it stretched out for you after opium
and now
now is now
then is gone
this time theme recurs always
time and time again
sweet fiendss in time
do you realise how many men n women have been seduced
by their times?
i finished my mothers book yesterday
times gone
times up
just like the flapping calendar pages in old films
tyrone power had a heart attack on the set
gable n flynn n steve mcqueen
they musta thought they owned the world
but time was beavering away
and their mansions were ripped from them
and the beautiful fast women and the fast beautiful cars
their youth n their fame
oh fleeting things!
the temptation is to think that…..
we all have our own temptations
for some its booze
for some its flesh
for some its danger
for some its anger
for some its the sea
for others its…
for some its smack
for others its tea
but whichever
all are subject to time
time waits for no one and he wont wait for me
sang jagger when he was 31 but did he believe it?
you dont see old people with skulls n crossbones on their tshirts
is death a person like the white faced hooded man in the 7th seal?
cutting us down with his scythe of pestilence n war
a white lady who appears at the end
jesus waiting at the end of a tunnel of light
your ancestors patiently waiting
the lions and the lambs
the pools n flowers of krsnas jungle
bringing the cattle home on an eternal summer evening
the sound of the flute
the lord of the universe is a slender youth
the colour of a cloud
everythings ok
back there in that dream i was having…..
i cant even remember now
i was struggling n arguing
where almost everything hurt
and things were so sad
but this
this is indescribable

    Often I get ripped back into the now, and, it’s then that I realize, while I was awash in the then and what I hope it will be, I found I wasn’t doing shit in the now to make the then happen.
    And, this happens every single fucking day.

    Talk about a mental hamster wheel…

    “time is of the essence”
    “time is fleeting”
    “time is money”
    “time marches on”
    …….blah blah blah……

    i don’t think mankind has ever seen anything as sinister as time~~the great robber of all things. time hounds us and chases us down. we’re chained to it and can’t get away from it.

    and then before you know it, it’s gone, like a thief in the night…..and you’re left wondering what the hell happened.

    Funny you mention “Time Waits For No One” today. I just sent that song to Olivia yesterday for her iPod. Wow, we’re on some kind of same wavelength… just kidding. Ha! Reminds me of that scene from “Imagine” were some guy had been sleeping in the garden of John and Yoko’s home (Tittenhurst I believe). They’re talking to him on the front steps. The guy thinks all these songs have been written about him or to him. He says something like “so when you said “”boy you’re going to carry that weight””… and John says, “that was Paul”. You could just see the life drain out of that poor guys face. Of course they invited him in and gave him something to eat. I wish Lennon was still around…

    Like ‘reality’, ‘time’ is an idea so hackneyed and overused it no longer holds much meaning for me.

    I don’t hold much store in either concept, truth be told.

    (and there’s another one…)

    There is much to recommend a life with no reality to hold it down and no time to blinker it.

    But try as I might, I can escape neither: everyone around me is a staunch adherent to the strictures of Reality…

    …and I’m secretly in love with Mistress Time.

    Her melancholy airs, the tang of her sadness, the joys of her evaporating mom en t s

    ….for some its me. “yep” sk some of the best and worst moments of time have been with you marty and the ceerrch.

    Think of how your music has penitrated time. I am not obsessed with you ” I don’t think’ But I couldn’t imagine my life without the Church. Ya see I cryed at the gig in Melbourne infront of you and the grizzling Peter K not because I am like a crazy beetles chick or a demented fan…It was because as the space ship took off in my induced state I went into day-5 like a black hole, spira=ling into a myirid of colours ,emotion and unbelievable sonic bliss. TIME stood still, as (I exited quietly… Ya see, the music sk is timeless…but uit’s in its own space in time.. We will all be -microfish- one day. but as this earth accepts our time here we are blessed with the cheerrch’s talent..It is timeless to us and the standard that NO other band WILL ever reach. And yet you are as quoted by SK ” just the singer of the band.

    Time has no method of understanding its self without music.

    Off to big Day Out.. Hope it doesn’t rain lookin foward to the Killers Killa.

    Tell ya how they stacked up! D-Bowie say’s ther great.
    Iam sure that NY sneaky has given ya a come down.

    Got those lyrics all wrong (i’d never make a good singer even if I could sing). I think it’s:

    “one chance is all you have
    when it’s gone all that’s left is sorrow” (I still could be wrong but this one sounds better)

    The words of age, followed by “the lord of the universe is a slender youth” evoked an image in my mind.

    I saw men and women, wrinkled and old, staggering into their deaths to be greeted by this youthful lord of the universe and realise that time is all there is.

    But I guess that might be beside the point. (Sorry.)

    Time is the enemy. That bastard gets us all in the end. I think that the only way to fight the fight is to live one’s life to the fullest. To squeeze every bit of experience from this all too brief existance, before its gone for good. Not to be afraid to try. Not to hold back.

    Of course it’s futile. Time will still win in the end. But at least, if I have truly lived, I can spit in his eye on the way out that door.

    i am alway amused by the idea that people suggest living in the moment is the best way to live, i for some strange reason, possibly due to a few to many blows upon the head seem to do this in a very easy way, ie, it comes naturally to me, yet this is what infuriates the people who know me, i never have a clue what day it is, what time, often turning up to things late or early, being led along tangents and distractions, loopwholes or doorways into altered states and alternative realities, i’ve cultivated a slight disipline, mostly due to fatherhood and responsibility, but generally manage to stay in the moment of things. I’m not sure if thats a curse or a blessing.
    anyway it nice starting the day with a blank page (great metaphor) and i’m not sure what goes on in peoples lives (((()))) becuase i don’t always read the comments but i wish you all good health spiit and love and consider it quite a special phenomena when a group of strangers are somehow unified by a ‘time being,’ if ya know what i mean….

    Ahh Professor Kilbey,what melancholy joy you give…my wife, baby boy and I were listening to Life Speeds Up on a road trip yesterday, and how beautifully poignant that song still is, no doubt forged in the fire and steel of your/our youth…it means something different all these years later, doesn’t it? That, I think, is when a song becomes art…and so many of your songs are like that these days…anyway, we enjoyed it and felt it…the world spins alone…

    All this carpe diem talk by you, my fellow commenters… it takes time to contemplate and reflect too. Run through life trying to make the most of it, and you’ll miss the biggest and the smallest things, the most wonderful and the most terrifying things. You’ll narrow your vision, reduce your horizons. Run though life and you’ll have learned nothing, seen nothing, done nothing.

    amen brother. that’s about all you can do. Right now we’re in the very depressing state of watching my 93 year old grandmother literally slip out of time. She’s not living, she’s not dying. She’s in some weird state of suspended animation. It’s hellish to watch. And her life was tied to one street for 60 + years; she never went anywhere, saw anything…so live, live by all means do all you can to live the hell out of this thing because there’s no getting out alive as we know.

    Someone once said:

    Life = Time
    Time = Space
    Space = Sublime and
    Human = Race.

    We are caught up in Time; it defines us. The space/time continuum …..warps in space, time as an elastic variable, not a constant – travelling at the speed of light maybe in an Einsteinian world. I’ve caught a glimpse while…, in an altered state of perception.

    In the world of work and earning my daily bread – I long for the day when my time belongs to me alone, to revel in, waste offhandedly, savor and cherish. That’s my greatest resentment – when this souless entity confiscates my time. I think of that film scene, when Roy meets his creator, Tyrell, he says “I want more…….life.”

    “it takes time to contemplate and reflect too. Run through life trying to make the most of it, and you’ll miss the biggest and the smallest things, the most wonderful and the most terrifying things.”

    I completely agree. I don’t think that living life fully involves go go go. Living deeply also means lying under the olive trees as the sun dries salt to a thin, powdery crust on browned skin. Eating a rustic lunch of bread, hard cheese and coarse local wine drunk straight from the bottle. Your backdrop is the bleached bony spine of the mainland that towers over the islands and the sea, and in the distance the slow clonk of sheep bells. ( Taking time to “stop and smell the flowers”, as they say.

    Living fully means experiencing more, but also experiencing deeply.

    Just my opinion, of course, fellow fiends 🙂

    Time is a thread that is only a point of reference. As we grow more techno we are able to use more time than before and cheat. You know like, drive a car,talk on the cell,surf the time being, and drop your kids to school all in fifteen. The internet has changed the impact of time, now when someone is killed, or disaster strikes it seems more…shockingly common place in a way, only because we are world viewers from the effects of CNN and faster media and at the rate that we absorbed it and try to understand it the reverberations of the effect are played out and spoon feed to us immediately. Meanwhile, radio waves are moving at a constant out in space and say way out there somewhere a life-force may be tuning in to hear Vera Lynn, Miles Davis, JFK, MLK,the sinking of the Titanic, or even Under The Milky Way for the very first time. I fear fellow man/woman more than time. We are nothing in the course of time but a blink you and I, yet we all seem to be hot wired for some purpose. We have the kings, queens, and drones. Perhaps, this is the entrance of the seven deadlys all perpetuated by time. Old Lucifer has use for still hands and some people have a lot to answer for. I hope I realize my purpose before its already the end and at best I hope my last bit of knowledge will be provided in an answer….WHY?

    I swear to the almighty universe this is exactly how I too have been feeling and what I’ve been contemplating…too weird, but increasingly non-surprising. There you go again “hittin’ the nail right on the head” with that one. Strange vibrations in the cosmos I guess. Thank you for doing that. It makes me feel I’m not alone. Plus I really dig the way you lay it all down. Time is just…time. There, it’s gone again. Just like our breath and energy, and wisdoms and talents however we utilize them. It disappears and recycles somehow. Physicalities, circumstances…who and what we share it all with…EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING. Also for what reasons, if any. Are there thoughts and dreams involved? It is random, yet finely calculated. What is the beginning and what is the end, is still questionable. Mysteriously inevitable demise that awaits, or is it graduation to a tangent existence? Primary origination, or rekindled birth? We’ll not know until we actually get there. In the meanTIME…we live. It is my personal wish and intention to you all that time does treat us well in this interim and beyond.
    Have a lovely day, SK and fellow TBers…

    How do we come to terms with it.I was particularly obsessed with the subject all day and reading your blog tonight as well as the comments has just intensified it even more. Death is here, all around, we are all dying now, slowly, or quickly, decaying, changing, fading away and as I read today in Ian Gawler’s old book on healing and dying, if the space inside every atom in our bodies was removed the actual size of the material (or what was dense enough to resemble physical matter) that would be left would be the size of a pin head (or something like that – sorry to the physics types if I haven’t got that quite right but you know). We’re not even really here in the first place? Crossing the harbour in the ferry today I was watching the waves and imagining them to be people’s lives- there’s one- now it’s gone-a lifetime, merged back into the ocean, another wave, a moment and then gone. All those Yogis and the ancient teachings better be right! I keep saying to my boyfriend when we are pleasantly sitting in the sun having a cup of coffee, ‘In a minute we are going to be 80’ Thanks Steve for expressing in language what to most of us (well speak for myself) usually has to remain abstracted in feelings and vague images.

    Fawn, why don’t you imagine those harbour waves taking you back ceaselessly (apologies F.Scott) to your youth, to your childhood, then trying to see the world from that perspective…how infinite and beautiful…not 80 but 8! maybe you’re looking from the wrong side of the ferry…great thoughts though, thanks…

    the only time we control time is when we change the clocks…spring forward, fall back (which i hate, by the way) and even then, does time really change? does it really spring forward of fall back? of course not! we are time’s little pet…get to have few treats, patted on the head once and a while, and we get to sleep some place comfy hopefully…but we are not in control. there’s never enough and what there is of it…well, it’s running out.

    Thanks for taking the time for that SK.
    Much love winging its way to you from blighty.
    Here’s for a great tour. Knock ’em dead, break a leg, convert some lost souls to the greatness of The Chrunch.
    I’m not much of a Pretenders fan but i hope it leads to some extra sales and profiles for the greatest rock band of all time. Time again!
    Wish I was there. Can’t wait for El Mo 2 to be shipped by the Church Merch crew. Any chance of a gig or two in England??
    Friday night in England. Off for a couple pints of ale and a Tarka Dhall.
    Love you more,

    Dave M

    hi steve and fellow bloggers
    been taking a leaf
    out of the kilbey book this week getting up early
    to supper for my fart
    write the morning pages
    just received v late xmas present to self
    jake thackray’s ‘jake in a box’
    (shouldn’t that be ‘thack in a box’?)
    and el momento descuidado
    dear jake
    bless his soul
    delivers parochial tales
    of provincial england
    in his quirky yorkshire noel coward accent
    boy could he play guitar
    as for elmode
    like the laidback intimate feel
    the way the familiar songs
    reveal their hidden agendas
    yield up subtle new harmonies
    illuminate new possibilities
    ‘tristesse’ is a fave
    that lovely melty 12-string bit
    in the middle
    0408 is a standout unfamiliar track
    and love the sleeve art
    hasta luego

    and awakens
    than music,

    but music is the language
    souls speak
    much older than i

    or you
    or any of us
    we have awoken

    to find
    in the dream

    again and
    of this world

    is nothing you
    or i
    or any of us

    I have yet to see the band electrified! I long for this day! Im here in the USA you see.
    Im going to find a way to get el momento part deux. I hope it gets signed if it isnt already, so that you can share it with the world. Song in the after noon is really really grand! I heard it on myspace. Its great to hear that cool as everything voice with a new tune. The band is always reinventing itself and getting better with every new album. The thing with that is, when i hear something new from the church, i always think they could never top this one, but they do. I think they always will.

    Apologies if wrong


    Artist: Church
    Song: Already Yesterday
    Album: Heyday

    It’s already yesterday, we’re off the calendar
    I heard the sirens play just like an orchestra
    Mechanical bird of prey sing for your emperor
    Last broken flash of love still in the camera
    We don’t feel those locks and chains
    We won’t listen to the lizard part of our brains
    Giving the orders
    Another morning we’ll be gone
    I start the car for Ten Mile Beach
    And maybe Avalon, across the water
    It’s already yesterday and nobody’s answering
    Disconncted, drift away, nobody’s questioning
    Head silver, feet of clay, who is surrendering
    They fall in our heyday, I am remembering
    We can’t feel those aches and pains
    We won’t listen to the voices in the city rain
    Giving the orders
    Another morning I’ll be gone
    I start the car for Violet Town
    And then to Babylon, over the border

    Climate Threat Advances “Doomsday Clock”

    “Experts assessing the dangers posed to civilisation have added climate change to the prospect of nuclear annihilation as the greatest threats to humankind.” The “Doomsday Clock”, established in 1947 by the “Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists” to warn the world of the dangers of nuclear weapons, was just moved from 7 to 5 minutes to midnight largely on the basis of climate change concerns. In addition to highlighting continued concerns with nuclear warfare (which in itself would dramatically alter the climate), and particularly proliferation as nuclear energy spreads, for the first time the clock moved because of “destruction of human habitats wreaked by climate change brought on by human activities… global warming poses a dire threat to human civilization that is second only to nuclear weapons.” Since its inception the clock has moved from as much as 17 minutes to 2 minutes to doomsday. The recent change is the first since 2002. Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking said “we foresee great peril if governments and societies do not take action now to render nuclear weapons obsolete and to prevent further climate change.” We at Ecological Internet concur; indeed, the warnings echo sentiments found in a recent Earth Meanders personal essay entitled “Earth Prophecy” by Dr. Glen Barry. No one can say with certainty how soon if ever the human race will annihilate itself. Yet with the basic science that humankind is causing global heating settled, and many of the projections made regarding impacts upon the Earth of over-population and environmental destruction coming true (in some cases many times more abruptly than expected), and with increasing militarization including nuclear, clearly humanity has moved more closely to its own demise.

    And for all of our sakes, Americans, please!!!! register to vote and get rid of this administration that’s causing so much world-wide trouble. Please? If only 10% of voters who didn’t bother last time had turned out to vote, we would have said good night and good luck to W.

    Remember, this poll news below is about your government’s actions, not you as Americans.
