about

The title is rich I think, play on words - a take is a try at something, like in recording, take one... and of course a mis-take is one that didn't work. No mistakes might be a boast of success or a claim that there can be no mistakes, everything that happens is the inevitable outcome of what came before, maybe even perfect.

WillEYEspeak is Willie Oliver & Tom Ferguson jamming weekly, sometimes recording the more experimental side of what we do. In this case 7 tracks with a final joining of the 7 simultaneously... always, well, often an unexpected delight. Most of the titles begin OUR, at first to distinguish them from previously recorded versions when we used lyrics from my songs, Our Farewell etc; Then I got to liking using the OUR as a sort of tongue-in-cheek formal cataloging , then as OUR - what Willie & I do together, and then OUR as in belonging to all of us.

Track Name: Our Farewell
Outlandish greetings I have known know now no
limitation such expansion carries me to this farewell
you see what I see yon landscape
shore to sea and yon frigate
such expansion carries me to this farewell

Hills behind to which I turn hearing sun setting westward
once again this is just so indescribable unnamable
yet yon and here is

Daffodils singing in the morning rain that would be a picture
oddities crowding stands of leisure without opprobrium

Man and his we and is woman stirs turning to this fond farewell

Angst drenched sentiment has fallen from a tray
like ice cube summer demands just such
tapestries to this farewell

Seances of sentences cluster in sedimentary substance
waves one upon another one upon another come

Till that soil there are also other losses twill still
Track Name: Our Food Not Bombs
Military might is a mighty sorry sight food food not bombs
battleships sit irreligious grip food food not bombs
nuclear subs stealin our grub food food not bombs
food food not bombs

artillery shells straight out of hell food food not bombs
hand grenades ruinin your day food food not bombs
automatic guns blockin out the sun food food not bombs
food food not bombs

bloody bayonets makin me upset food food not bombs
carpet-bombin planes mass graves food food not bombs
pentagon pain makin me insane food food not bombs
food food not bombs
food food not drones food food not pollution food food not injustice
food food not fascism food food not oligarchy food food not death
food food not bombs food food not bombs
Track Name: Our Holy Whole
adrift on a board in a flood and a storm lightning then nothin to see
black river roaring bumps in the night animal screams scarey
the moon rises like hope on me the moon rises like hope on me

take in the little now take in the big now
take in the little tomorrow take in the big tomorrow
take in the little past take in the big past
take in the near other take in the far other
take in the total other

take in the holy whole take in the holy whole take in the holy whole

on knees on the shore gators and boar moccasin canopy green
melodic calling birds of variety sunlights' new morning they greet

the day rises like hope on me the day rises like hope on me

take in the little now take in the big now
take in the little tomorrow take in the big tomorrow
take in the little past take in the big past
take in the near other take in the far other
take in the total other

take in the holy whole take in the holy whole take in the holy whole
Track Name: Our Kingdom of God
you can say ten hail marys bow to the east
stand at the wailing wall grinding your teeth
sit in a lotus never breaking your fast

or whenever you think to take a breath let it out here you are
the kingdom of god is not a monarchy

you can hold up your symbol promise never to lie
open the window sing to the sky
prostrate yourself a whip on your back

or whenever you think to take a breath let it out here you are
the kingdom of god is not a monarchy

you can lay down for allah or maybe yaweh
burn up some incense of a bush on the way
vow you to poverty suffer the rack

or whenever you think to take a breath let it out here you are
the kingdom of god is not a monarchy

you can stand at the alter preach to the mass
baptize a newborn or read the rites last
lent starting wednesday forehead of ash

or whenever you think to take a breath let it out here you are
the kingdom of god is not a monarchy
Track Name: Our Living Earth
expensive woman in a jaguar gold
successful man by any measure not his own

Buddha makes it bearable understandable clear
Juda makes it bearable understandable clear

sailing on a high over worker's heads and backs
valet always there to park the yacht out back

extensive investment in armaments and gold
safety sought in strategies of old

Jesus makes it bearable understandable clear
Mohammad makes it bearable understandable clear

U.S.A. Atlanta Braves makes it bearable understandable clear

never enough never enough never enough

I'd be somewhere else in this traffic
had I left a different time taken another turn

home birth living earth makes it bearable understandable clear
