i remain totally fucking unrepentant

i was uh down in the city on a miracle street

got on a fuckin’ bus n i took a seat

i musta  uh been giving off some  spirit heat

the woman right beside me is uh curling her feet

and the avenues rush past like an aquarium

yeah the deluge has begun in the uh interim

and the drugs in my pockets start to burning them

and i think about uh jeffrey down in birmingham

and i think about a certain little enterprise

and i bet you all uh wanted it to be otherwise

and i’m seeing this mis-vision through other mans eyes

and in a mid-collision with my own pack of lies

and i’m lost in my own street in a womans size

and i’m juggling the aliens and the alibis

when the light turns black i’m down at the back

with my vanilla crackle n my honey smack

when the light turns white i stay up all night

thats when uh love is easy and uh time is tight

i’m a duplicator i’m a fabricator i’m a mangy panther

i’m a alligator

if you would just stay still

i will make you oh so beautiful

when the light turns grey its yet another day

my mansuit getting kinda come what may

and the illegal bets and the uh illegal pets

and all the stuff i’m getting off the internets

thank you serf for your perfect sets

thank you earth with uh certain regrets

thank you to my avatar for making me real

thank you to my fingers for making me feel

thank you to lord vishnu who dreamed up this game

there aint much praise theres a whole loada blame

why even a uh man- jaguar is easy to tame

its a shame if your name is your uh claim to fame

when the lights turn pink i follow the link

when the lights turn in

i put the whole thing

down to sin

i’m savant idiot i’m a stupid genius i’m a minor hit

i’m a candle lit

if you would just hold still i will make you oh so

    an absurd idea and a criminal idea, but for the next “el momento…”, you should re-invent the lyrics to a selection of much-loved-church songs, as opposed to re-inventing the music

    Now I’m going to have to dig out Block and try to make the new lyrics fit! I trust you have not resumed any form of smack, be it honey or not.

    my knots are all knickered and numb, with my vanity attached
    as i wander through their yonder, all shivering and bent
    this was definitely an idea on our way to an enlightenment
    and it was probably just for minutes that i suffered fragile hours
    in front of families and oldies and suddenly grand old fathers
    i was brave but never sober bold and it was getting mighty cold out there
    where the hell are my clothes? where in heaven is that man,
    not my love, just a reaction to the one wearing out my heart,
    now sometimes turned to lover
    but then there he came, on that peaking bondi wave
    and saved me from the most existential of all of my angst
    and for moments he was saviour all tall and toned and tanned and male
    an icon on an icon fixing fallacies i couldn’t part with in any woeful rhyme
    some memories we invented i would never expiate
    so much for which i would never atone
    i am glad this memory is my last of bondi
    one time before stays safely in its slumber
    inside my bare loved bondi apartment, six months i spent in all
    all skint and lightly woven and bright until
    a stranger battered loudly and scattered me into flight and fright
    but that’s another story and i’m getting tired of my utterings
    can’t I just be quiet

    This is great SK and of course I had to put on Uninvited Like the Clouds after I read this. Awesome stuff. Well had my last Art class at uni today and presented my artwork – its amazing how its such an anti climax. You put so much into it and you wonder what for at the end.

    Wanted to know what everyone thought about the 4 Corners program last night (not that I was able to watch it – actually had to turn it off). It is horrendous what we are doing to those poor animals shipping them off like that. Absolutely disgraceful. I can hardly bear to think about their suffering. Anyway at least it’s being brought up so that hopefully something will be done to stop it.

    Take carexxx

      I couldn’t watch much of it Ingrid, those images haunt me for too long these days. But can only thank 4 Corners and feel heartened that the outcry has been so strong. What it will lead to long term we will have to wait and see but hopefully, eventually, to banning live exports altogether.

    That’s right.
    Don’t block it.
    Let it all out man.
    Didn’t watch 4 Corners Ingrid.
    Saw a little segue on ABC news..that was enough for me.
    Watched Pulp Fiction instead.

      Yes well it was too hard to watch. Anyway on a lighter note – Pulp Fictions great isn’t it (in fact all of Tarantino’s are hey)

    Oh Block, one of the best openers in the long line of many greats.
    I couldnt help sing this as I read it today.

    Take Care,

    Anything close to BLOCK in reference, subject, feeling, or interpretation…mesmerizes all who read and listen. BLOCK is a gem in a career of polished stones. Perfection personified. An opener that can close out any show as powerful as GRIND. ULTC is in my top 3 full masterpieces.

    isidore awakens in a dream
    thundering train along the prairie
    rumbling across the fruited plain
    no destination necessary
    you better put on your game face
    hear the conductor from afar
    “all aboard” he yells out
    to sleeping houses and running cars
    you won’t fool us this time, no need to shout
    your tracks were covered years ago
    the last time you came to town
    we remember you well, you know
    when our smiling faces turned to frowns
    take your cars and caboose elsewhere
    keep your empty seats clear
    don’t slow down to stop and stare
    go somewhere far away, not here
    your smoke stack belches out eerily,
    spitting ice and wind like the winter
    your unknowing passengers we do pity
    as they take their places unwillingly
    thunder down your invisible track
    going from one town to the next
    like a ghost army on the attack
    our hearts and souls you do test
    how long of a journey will you have
    from the middle to the south, then east
    you mock us with your thunderous laugh
    go back to your station, let us have peace
    stay there while we catch our breath
    don’t leave again ’til next season
    keep to yourself, still as a black kettle
    as we sort out the now and the “reasons”
    maybe you’ll be scrapped one day
    melted down into something useful
    for upon our fears you do prey
    whirling monster in the night, so dreadful
