Well, I'm the black ace dog handler: I'm a waiter on skates
So don't you jump to your foreskin conclusion
Because I'm up to my deaf ears in cold breakfast trays
To be cleared before I can dine on your sweet Sunday lunch confusion

But news filtered over the transom
That a villain ended up with the part
You paid your respects like a ransom
To a moment that was doomed from the start

Patient Zero Aimee Mann from 'Mental Illness'

'He said in the cosmos is a single sonic sound
That is vibrating constantly
And if we could grip and hold on to the note
We would see our minds were free'


Rob Halford ~ 'Dreamer Deceiver'

from the Judas Priest album Sad Wings Of Destiny , 1976

Flesh Tint Ochre
Chrome Cerise."

Did you ever look to see who is left around?
When I think about the past it only brings me down
Everyone I thought was cool is six feet under ground

"Officer Material", by Cathal Coughlan (solo; ex: Microdisney and Fatima Mansions)


What a beautiful voice.

John Peel once said that he could listen to Cathal Coughlan sing the telephone directory. Of course, he also mentioned the "rum thoughts" in Cathal's head as well...


It's 3:20 in the morning,
and the car is in the tree.
The journey apparently is over,
loverboy lies prostate on the wheel.
She could could pass for 10 years younger,
running down that country road.
The first sound she's aware of is her footsteps,
the smell of smoke and diesel from her clothes.
She could pass for 10 years younger,
if she showed any sadness or fear,
if she shed drops of sweat or a tear, and...

Juat a snippet,
Elbow: My sad captains

Oh, long before
You and I were born
Others beat these benches with their empty cups
To the night and its stars
To be here, and now, and who we are
Another sunrise with my sad captains
With who I choose to lose my mind
And if it's all we only pass this way but once
What a perfect waste of time

I had a dream on a back lot
I saw my life like a long shot
I smile at faces in a picture parade
Of all the stills from the films that you've made
We would see in the Essoldo
Up there drinking coffee on the Giocondo

from 'Elstree' - The Buggles

(music/lyrics: Geoffrey Downes / Trevor Horn)
