Lyrics
Vicki Kierkegaard

it's 11 o'clock

hi, i'm Vicki
i am your new toy

children gambol in the park
playing catch until the night
they don't know what life will bring
and all i do is sing

people gamble at The Park
playing catch up in the night
they don't know what life will bring
and all i do is sing

let's play

Bill, you always write some original stuff, but this is ... well, creepy, subversive, a little unhinged. The voice on this is wonderfully fake (Hi, i'm Vikki) and synthetic, but authoratative. This is really edgy work, and feels like a panic attack set to music.

Your going to give me nightmares.

PS:
Your artwork made me think of the line:

"Backgammon? Hari-Kari?...T.V.!"...from JA's "Lather,"---an equally demented piece.

Gee, Bill
Maybe you should let Fred or maybe even Ralph keep Vicki company...
Good old Vicki... My kids used to make her say all kinds of wacky things in the TexEdit window, then play it to their cousins over the phone. What a riot. but I digress... Very creative and futuristic, like the Electric Grandma on crack.

you touched on part of this song: Macs are incredibly tempting toys to play with. even when it's late in the evening and we ought to be getting to sleep.

Wow! Bill!
Very edgy - and I like the correlations in your lyrics! Existentialism - Yep, explains a lot in this world. :-I Thanks for the link Professor! I learn so much from you. :-)

i don't always have coherent thougths about my songs, but in this case, i have a strong theory....

you get the rosetta

11 o'clock - it's late, you should be going to bed - the 11th hour: at the end, here is what's real.

Vicki - Mac computer - a tempting lady

gambo/gamble - it's all play - kids play catch - adults are always trying to catch up

all i do is sing - in all this observing of the human condition, i'm not doing anything real: just singing/writing songs - Vicki may be sexy, but she doesn't do anything except sing

let's play - it's all play - it's 11, but heck, let's keep working on this song/listening to tunes on MacJams - Vicki might have other things in mind

i too don't know what life will bring...

the chordy lead tonality sounds like that "big chord" when you step into a casino...

other seedy interpretations are entirely your doing

thanks for listening dear heart

Thank you for the Rosetta :-)
I was thinking about all this in the context of "That's Progress" up through "Tempus" - and I really wasn't sure of anything about "Vicki" , but when I understood "Tempus" in different ways (literal / metaphorical) - I started to wonder if I hadn't missed something in the increasing level of edginess in your work. I missed the reference to "Vicki" altogether, because I can only dream of owning a MAC. (I much prefer their operating system!!!) Oh, MacJams!!! Everyone here must have one. :-) I told you, I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes. :-)
What I truly admire about your work, Bill, is that it is complex, multi-leveled (ideas, concepts, references) in so many ways - even the clues in the graphics - you make me think - not just feel - reach higher to become more enlightened. Sure from time to time I totally "Phoenix" interpreting your true intent, but that is how we learn - by not being afraid to make mistakes - by asking questions - by loving the process. :-)
And you're welcome, dear heart, what are old friends for if not to listen till late at night 'cause one or the other just needed to talk.

at the edge of the park,
at night, in the shadows awaits Vicki. Asking "Do you want to play?"
We have a park on the edge of town filled with "new toys" they run on AC or DC. Best to be avoided.

Very intriguing and dark piece where there is no escape.
Excellent Bill.

I kind of
got that we start out innocent; That we are tempted, succumb and become jaded. In the end, we can exist without feeling or sing without music in our souls.
Thanks.
