about

FREE LISTENING: We decided 12/2/16 to alternate, take turns choosing a song at random from my songbook to improv around which we did for each song except two, GatorTailDrums & RS/BD, the former without lyrics, pure improv mostly percussion on track one then coming back and improvising on keyboard & electric guitar on track two. RS is an improv around an, ah, well known song.

The cover art is a detail of a maquette of a building sculpture. The title plays with song book, since we used it so much and suggests an attitude toward the creative process. We were worried the title might get us labeled foreignors or illegals and deported but thought we'd take the chance.

Track Name: Huggin
nuclear garbage is proliferating it's a madness
nuclear nightmare is a breath away it's a sadness

there's nothin wrong with huggin (2x)
there's nothin wrong with dancin, smiling or lovin

these goddamned wars they keep a ragin on people dyin
a flag flyin high above a bloody land that ain't freedom

there's nothin wrong with huggin (2x)
there's nothin wrong with dancin, smiling or lovin

these politicians keep annoying me with their slogans
I'd rather play but somebody's goin to have to scold'em

there's nothin wrong with huggin (2x)
there's nothin wrong with dancin, smiling or lovin

I just want to waken feel the light on my face in the mornin
reach for my breakfast from the bough hangin by my hand

there's nothin wrong with huggin (2x)
there's nothin wrong with dancin, smiling or lovin
Track Name: ChairRock
we lived our lives and it didn't take long
seemed like a minute and it was gone
here we sit by the rockin chair
watchin the by-goin day

there goes Bobby he's a crooked man
couldn't get older if you took his hand
he'd leave you sittin by the road way
watchin the by-goin day

I remember way back behind my thumb
we experimented with Jamaican rum
I know along the way we must have had to pay
but no we got the mornin and the by-goin day (repeat 1.)
Track Name: The Same You
it seems so solid you can whack it with a stick
the stick'll bounce back a lick bein solid too
but it used to be somethin way else in the way past
you'll never step in the same river twice
hell, hell.... ain't even the same you
take a deep phenomenology let it out now now

it's so slippery try to grab a holdt
it'll leave you failin dry and oldt and slippery too
as much as you reach it'll slip off to the way past
you'll never step in the same river twice
hell, hell.... ain't even the same you
take a deep phenomenology let it out now now

it passes like a siren but somewheres underneath
is somethin that'll be heah like all through
and that somethin is so me, is so we
you'll never step in the same river twice
hell, hell.... ain't even the same you
take a deep phenomenology let it out now now
Track Name: No Mo No Mo
the bomb plant spillage is in or creepin toward the aquifer the aquifer
I don't wanna know no mo (3x)

releases in the air have been routine like in the water and
I don't wanna know no mo (3x)

plutonium decays in just a million years and all that time ya gotta keep it away from here and
I don't wanna know no mo (3x)

tritium is in the fish the crops the birds and
I don't wanna know no mo (3x)

Sellafield spews its trail of death from Ireland to Denmark
I don't wanna know no mo
Savannah River Site leaks its trail of death
downstream to Savannah downstream to Atlantic and
I don't wanna know no mo (3x)
Track Name: Workaholic
a flash in the night catches my attention
like anybody else's instinctive reaction
but I'm not a raven shiny object search
I can get back to my work

the day is flash in the night enough for me
it comes in repetition it still surprises me

flash in the night don't blind me
flash in the night don't describe me
flash in the night ain't we a flash in the night

workaholic cries jobs jobs mister minister calls god god
entrepreneur wants everything easy

2.
a loud noise catches my attention
like anybody else's instinctive reaction
but I'm not a dog tail tucked between my legs
I can get on with my list of things

the day is big bang enough for me
it comes in repetition it still surprises me

flash in the night don't blind me
flash in the night don't describe me
flash in the night ain't we a flash in the night
