Music....

.... tonight's earworm, gentle rubberneckers........ behold....



.. if you wish to sing along, here are the lyrics......

... this one actually comes from a Pittsburg fellow who I served with in the Corps..... The Clarks being from around there, I believe, once he was sent out to the rock that I was keeping warm in the Bering Sea, his girlfriend jilted him..... thoughts of him being so close to Siberia must have chilled her soul...... in any case, he introduced me - by his grief - to The Clarks..... and I always found this song a bit fascinating......


In a black and far off corner of my mind
There's a box of something I can't quite define
It houses circus freaks, temptation and bad trips
In an isolated corner of the box
There's a trap door covered up with dirt and rocks
It opens to the stairs that lead down to the crypt

Do you know where you're going when you've taken your last step
Do you know what you get?
Cigarette

On a dark and lonely road in my hometown
Stands a house that long ago should've been torn down
It reeks of love gone sour, suspicion and bad debt
On a weather beaten transom in the house
Walks a friend of mine that I call the old king mouse
He dances in the moonlight and sleeps out on the steps

Do you know where you're going when you've taken your last breath?
Do you know what you get?
Do you know where you're going when they've paid their last regrets?
Do you know what you get?
Cigarette

In a black and far off corner of my mind
There's a box of something I can't quite define
It houses circus freaks, temptation and the Fayette County Fair
And it reeks of love gone sour, suspicion and big hair

Do you know where you're going when you've taken your last breath?
Do you know what you get?
Do you know where you're going when the devil starts to sweat?
Do you know what you get?
A cigarette

... hey, I have no idea what the artists were thinking, but I always found their imagery quite interesting........

Bullshit So Far

When the heart is broken, the mind takes strange walks down dark paths.
