where were you?


paranormal shoe and a hoe-cake dream
with a list on the tramway a trailer park scream
trailer park shuffle for the lady in red
stick it in a spleen make the other one dead
soulway height make the TV blow
move the rabbit ears - the TV got snow
pop rocks
and pop rock nightmare
jet jocks
and the middle east warfare
pile high, pile high
for the high priest team
the big three networks no video screen
watergate came, watergate went
everythings a gate now
the poet is spent
inflation stagflation recession depression
put a niner to the temple in a jeopardy session
brains on the sidewalk brains on the flag
take the troops outta nam put the body in the bag
schoolhouse rock like a candy pop love
get it out
get it out
nightmares blow
like a triple-tit cow
and the pop rocks melt in the coke and the blow
and the here and the now
drive a pinto to the corner in a flame end purse
for a 40 ounce comfort and the free love session
lovesession obsession depression recession
get it out
get it out
all my memories from TV
and a man called Nixon
and another called Ford
and another called Carter
and we all got bored
and we went off to college
and we went off to work
and we went off to dream
and the dot com bullshit
short sale scream
made a lighthouse eyeball razor in the bag
Marcia Brady wetdream and a three-piece suit
wall street backstreet
and the blow
and the loot
and I stare now
looking at a ghost and a sha-dow
of a 70s kid
and I hide now
waiting for a pop rock sha-dow
when the TV
drop a rabbit ear, and I got snow
soulway height make the TV blow
move the rabbit ears - the TV got snow
pop rocks
and pop rock nightmare
everythings a gate now
the poet is spent
