OPEL

On a distant shore, miles from land
Stands the ebony totem in ebony sand
A dream in a mist of grey
On a far distant shore

The pebble that stood alone
And driftwood lies half buried
Warm shallow waters sweep shells
So the cockles shine

A bare winding carcase, stark
Shimmers as flies scoop up meat, an empty way
Dry tears
Crisp black squeaks tore reeds
Make a circle of grey in a summer way, around man
So don't ground

I'm trying
I'm trying
To find you, to find you
I'm living
I'm giving
To find you, to find you
I'm living
I'm living
I'm trying
I'm giving

 

CLOWNS AND JUGGLERS

Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
You have no word
Trip, trip to a dream dragon
Bide your wings in a ghost tower
Sails cackling at every plate we break
Was cracked by scattered needles
The little minute gong
Coughs and clears his throat
Madam, you see before you stand
Hey ho, never be still
The old original favorite grand
Grasshoppers green Herbarian band
And the tune they play is "In Us Confide"
So trip to heave and ho, up, down, to and fro'
You have no word
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
Isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
Meant even less to me than I thought
With a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
Clover honey pots and mystic shining feed

The madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey ho, buff the Talbot
"Cheat" he cried shouting kangaroo
It's true in their tree they cried
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

The madcap laughed at the man on the border
Hey ho, huff the Talbott
The winds they blew and the leaves did wag
They'll never put me in their bag
The seas will reach and always seep
So high you go, so low you creep
The wind it blows in tropical heat
The drones they throng on mossy seats
The squeaking door will always squeak
Two up, two down we'll never meet
So merrily trip for go my side
Please leave us here
Close our eyes to the octopus ride

 

RATS

Got it head down, spot knock inside a spider
Said that's love yeh, yeh, yeah
That's love yeh, yeh, yeah

Said that's love, all know it, TV, teeth, feet, peace, feel it
That's love, yeh, yeh, yeah
That's love, yeh, yeh, yeah

I like the fall that brings me to
I like the fall that brings me to
I make a cold around Saint New
I make a call around Saint New
Duck the weight and east is less
The craving of the metal west
Hell tomorrow's rain and test
Hell tomorrow's rain and test
Love an empty sun and guess
Love an empty sun and guess
Dimples dangerous and blessed
Heaving, arriving, tinkeling
Mingling jet and statuettes
Seething wet we meet in fleck
Seething wet we meet in fleck
Lines and winds and freeben half
Each fair day I give you half
Each fair day I give you half

I look into your eyes and you
Lay flat in the sun for you

Blam, splattered, tactile, engine heaving brackets
Seeking dormy roofy wham
I'll have them mind, blown
Broken jardy, clawdy
Smooth you root you packing bottle
Splosh eat moxy very smelly, cable, gable
Splinter channel doctor see me take a nod

Rats, rats lay down flat
We don't need you, we act like that
And if you think you're un-loved
Then we know about that
Rats, rats, lay down flat
Yes, yes, yes, yes, lay down flat

 

GOLDEN HAIR
(James Joyce 1907)

Lean out your window, golden hair
I heard you singing in the midnight air
My book is closed, I read no more
Watching the fire dance, on the floor
I've left my book, I've left my room
For I heard you singing through the gloom
Singing and singing, a merry air
Lean out the window, golden hair

 

DOLLY ROCKER

I know a sweet girl
She done where I can pay for me
Was a sweet girl
After five we went for tea

She seems a Dolly Rocker
She wanna go she gotta
I wanna see her, I know I do
I love you darling, all for you

You wanna me pal
She's so skewed
As a squirrel's nut
She don't see me
Said she thought she's got the lot

She's a Dolly Rocker
Wanna wait 'till I got her
Said she knows I know we know I do
Said she got to see me only with you

Oceans may travel away so long
Senses in the gravel, to see yourself at home
Nice to be at home
All I'll ever be forever
All my life, you see, when you got her
All I knew I will show you, baby
To your head push to you, baby

Is a Dolly Rocker.
She know what she got her
She seen a Dolly Rocker
She seen a Dolly Rocker

WINED AND DINED

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen
Only last summer, it's not so long ago
Just last summer, now must winds blow

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen
Chalk underfoot, life I should prove
Dancing in heat, our love and you

Wined and dined, oh it seemed just like a dream
Girl was so kind, kind of love I'd never seen

 

SWAN LEE (SILAS LANG)

Swan Lee got up at the Running Foot pow-wow
Heading from the fire to his waiting canoe
Chattering Squaw untied the wigwam door
The chief blew smoke rings two by two

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee, his boat by the bank in the darkness
Loosened the rope in the creek is entwined
A feather from the wing of a wild young eagle
Pointed to the land where his fortune he'd find

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee paddled on from the land of his fathers
His eyes scanned the undergrowth on either side
From the shore hung a hot, heavy, creature infested
Tropic, Swan Lee had a bow by his side

The land in silence stands

Swan Lee kept time, half on land, half on water
Grizzly bear and raccoon his fare
He followed his ears to the great water fall
Swan Lee knew deep down that his squaw was there

The land in silence stands

Suddenly the rush of the mighty great thunder
Confronted Swan Lee as his song he sang
In the dawn, with his squaw, he was battling homewards
It was all written down by Long Silas Lang

The land in silence stands
The land in silence stands
The land in silence stands

 

BIRDIE HOP

Birdie Hop he do, he hop along
A lonely bird upon a window there
He, he, there he blow a windy snow
He knew the snow, I know the snow
A hoppy bird

The antelope ride around the parasole
Just to see if he's a man enough to meet you in the sandpit
On a flying kind of sign in a meddlesome way
You know the way
I see the flies

She's a little kite the sort you think you might like to fly
And like a kite you get to see her every night
You know the way
She's only paving her way
Hectochrome plane
I see the flies

Birdie Hop he do, he hop along
A lonely bird upon a window there
He, he, there he blow a windy snow
He knew the snow, I know the snow
A hoppy bird

A camel woke up to a polish dawn
Wouldn't look to see his feet had gone
He wouldn't like it
Wouldn't have the strength to fight
I see the flies

I'm the only bird, a little third, I lost a quarter
Had a yearning to be earning just a dollar a day
In a way you shouldn't like it, hectochrome plane
I see the flies

 

LET'S SPLIT

Everything about about to go out
Me out, you out
Yes and everything is out about, out
Out, out, out, out, out, out

Let's split
Tellin' you this is it

Everything is down and hound, hound, hound
Back down, down, down
Even everything is down
Abound and down, down, down, down, down, down

Let's split
Tellin' you this is it

Nobody is right tonight, night, height, right, tight
It isn't right
Me out, you out
And everything is out
Out, out, out, out, out, out

Let's split

 

LANKY (PART ONE)

Strumentale

 

WOULDN'T YOU MISS ME (DARK GLOBE)

Oh where are you now
Pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone
You promised to stand from your heart
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down
Treading the sand, please
Please, lift a hand
I'm only a person
Whose own band beads
On his hand hangs tall
Won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?

The poppy birds wail
Swing twigs coffee brands around
Brandish a one wan
With a feathery tongue
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down
Treading the sandplease, please
Please lift a hand
I'm only a person with Eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all around
Won't you miss me?
Wouldn't you miss me at all?

 

MILKY WAY

What'd you ever say today
When you're in the milky way
Oh tell me please
Just to give you a squeeze
If I met you
I told you what to do
Seems a while since I could smile
The way you do

How many times, if I try, if I may
When you're in the milky way
Half of your time
Beside me only
That misfire the singular grrace
By heats and wet
Seems a while since I could smile
The way you do...

What can anyone mean to you
Standing in the milky way
Take life easy
I mean so easy
Why so empty I told you
I can tell you what to do
When I hold you
And I tell you "I love you"
I feel the time the way you do...

Give a grasp of life today
When you're in the milky way
Oh, try to please
Knock on wood of the trees
Glad you, mould you
Mould you and hold you
Means five miles
And every way for you...
