Mittwoch

We starve—
Look at one another short of breath,
Walking proudly in our winter coats,
Wearing smells from laboratories,
Facing a dying nation,
Of moving paper fantasy,
Listening for the new told lies,
With supreme visions of lonely tunes.
Somewhere inside something there is a rush of greatness.
Who knows what stands in front of our lives?
I fashion my future on films in space,
Silence tells me secretly everything, everything.

Manchester England-England.
Manchester England-England, 				Eyes, look your last!
Across the Atlantic Sea,					Arms, take your last embrace!
And I'm a genius-genius,					And lips, oh you the doors of breath,
I believe in God,							Seal with a righteous kiss,
And I believe that God believes in Claude. 		Seal with a righteous kiss,
That's me!								The rest is silence.
That's me!								The rest is silence.
That's me!								The rest is silence.

We starve—
Look at one another short of breath,
Walking proudly in our winter coats,
Wearing smells from laboratories,
Facing a dying nation,
Of moving paper fantasy,
Listening for the new told lies,
With supreme visions of lonely tunes,
Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar,
Life is around you and in you,
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie.

Let the sun shine,
Let the sun shine in,
The sunshine in.
Let the sun shine,
Let the sun shine in,
The sunshine in.
Let the sun shine,
Let the sun shine in,
The sunshine in.
Let the sun shine,
Let the sun shine in,
The sunshine in.
Let the sun shine,
Let the sun shine in,
The sunshine in.

—James Rado, Gerome Ragni, William Shakespeare, "The Flesh Failures"

    “Hair” was one of my favorite movies, and I still like it. (“Breaker Morant” still rules!)
