Lyrics
"Take the shed off yer head and let it rain on yer trash"
"Entering uncontrolled headspace"
Bow Tie you know where ever grass goes models bovine behavior
Wash the clean hands, play to the stands, ape guardians and saviors
Shills are everywhere
in the water you might breath
in the air you might drink
take the time to think
Near the light they melt and start to stink
"Now let's go where they grow."
Tomorrow is here at last, careful as you pass
The path is only wide enough for your feet alone
Hell is other people
You'll only be as free as you want to be
Don't take no time to think
the Bow Tie you know, every where grass goes, wash the clean hands

"Alright, now sing one with me kids."
Come by me my Lord, come by me, oh Lord, come by me
Michael row the boat ashore, praise God
"Now, dream one."

Really neat
Clever stuff Daug. Slightly basementy jaxxy? In your face cool.
Pretty nifty work here!
Daugrin said 2042 days ago (September 23rd, 2011)
Thanks Ed
I have to guess what you mean by basementy jaxxy -opps I'm terminally inept with popular cultural references, it is, like everything else worth doing... in your face cool? (Hadn't heard that one either)
Appreciate you stopping and commenting...

Headspace...
Hi Daug. Like the artwork, first off. Headspace is a good description. This is one wild ride at first but I laughed out loud when it turned into a kid's campfire singalong. Way to inventive for me! Thanks. Regards, Peter

You are such a mad scientist, Daug. This rocks in a hard and heavy fashion. That fuzz bass is ridiculous(ly) good, fat, chewy.

The Summer of Love Kumbya/Michael Row was inspired---right up my alley. Just right mix or irony and genuine sing along. Love the folk/rock/celeste outro. That is entertainment!!

Reinholt56 said 2042 days ago (September 24th, 2011)
Hi Daug.....
The shills are everywhere. The context is everything. Meaning lies even when you don't know what it means. You hit the nail on the head when there wasn't a nail in sight. You only think you know. Make it up kinda lifelike in a surreal kind of life like everyday occurances, if you're paying attention with that vertual devalued dollar.

This is the most true to life, concept-riddled applause-deserving dissertation-deserving work I've seen or heard on Majcams in a good little while. The outro itself kept me enthralled until the silence came......

I'm walking on sunshine.

Take care (if you will).

Mr. Reinholt I presume,
That outro is a funny thing... fall off the chair funny, true to life- now I do like a righteous comment! I appreciate the big ears when they come by and opine, more, you Sir seem to grasp the whole experience. Good for you... not too certain this is awardable, it's unfortunate that I felt the overpowering need to make the thing... here you go, community based advocacy at it's lowest level.

Consider my trash rained on. You're awakening my inner anarchist with this sardonic call to arms.

Dave in the House
Hopefully, people can still change their point of view when confronted by evidence that presents their headspace as ineffective. You are correct, this one was a call to action, but is it a sardonic alarm? Anarchist? Just a change, one soul at a time...

Really cool stuff here man!
This has elements that remind me of Amon Tobin (the industrial sounding sounds) but the song is all Daug. My brain could never work this way in creating music but hell, it sure can enjoy this. Crazy stuff. You unleashed some guitar chops in this biatch. Hey I recognize that hymn you put in there. We sang that song all the time in my church growing up.

Hello Charles
That hymn was a closer at folk events until about the time Pet Sounds came out. The other one was a hit as well, it was revived by Pete Seeger in the early 60s. I am certain you could create music this way Charles, the modules here are not beyond you in a technical sense. Pet Sounds is the first recording using this code of instruction. The difficult aspect is getting the bits to flow smoothly... one to the next, you have to plan the scenes and connect them in a manner that is acceptable to the audience's sonic expectations. The other thing to consider is the overhead; a constant focus point that must be maintained.

Extraordinary
There's a very creative mind at work here! The tableau before the listener is complex, with lots of images (musical and lyrical) coming through. THe change at 3.36 is fascinating (and funny), too. Keep these coming!

Thanks for stopping into the Daug House! I am impressed with your comment. Be certain, more in the works.

First I got to say I love your first line ... I've been in many situations where I could have used that line. Great lyrics. Now holy Daug ... that guitar is cool ... great sound and those drums are insane... the whole tune is way out there. It's like jazz fusion with a re-incarnated Zappa. I like that change at about 3:27 when the bells come in and you go in to the whole come by me thing. Very creative stuff!

Hello Stan
Man, I have great respect for your musicianship, I am blown away by the things you post. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Feel free to use the catch line... it was derived in response to a common practice, used by the adepts at MJ, to control the content of the forums. The Zappa sign often gets hung on my neck, comparison to FZ is a compliment, I just make what I hear. As things go, isn't that better than any process?

Hello Vic!
Thanks for stopping by to offer encouragement and share your insights in this piece. I always enjoy your comments. Coherence? Naw, not that Vic! Perhaps Nietzsche's critique of resentment is a weighty anchor for a 5:30 piece, but look at the all the fun you had... this one is lighter than the previous two, I will give you that...
You have to reconsider the burial work done in the summer of love treatment of "Come by Me". If you insist on your comments, I will have to charge you with making a more effective arrangement yourself, consider how this bit is functioning, it stands in for a whole lot of words. I was proud a that bit...

What's in your headspace?
A crazy sonic journey. Just when you think it's over … it's not … with lots of surprising twists and turns. And that includes the unexpected hootenanny sing-along at the end. When "Kumbaya" and "Michael" come in … it reminded me of that scene in the space movie where they start tearing out the computer's memory chips and the machine reverts to an elementary cadence. This is how I could go out as I degrade with age … mumbling campfire tunes ... following the bouncing ball ….

Mr. Smith, thanks for stopping. I appreciate your comments, the thing means whatever you think it means! Thanks for your thoughtful interpretation.
By way of explain: sunflowers face the sunlight all day, and at night, re-orient themselves to what will be the dawn sky. They anticipate the dawn, have expectations, if the dawn is overcast they continue to face east in anticipation of their sun.
Kumbaya and Michael represent a worldview. The arrangement lampoons these cultural icons, and those who continue to stare blankly into the sky waiting for illumination...
You might find my personal headspace unlistenable lol...

You had to get some verbal cues, can't be helped I guess! This one covers ideas that don't find wide expression, all meaning is up for grabs right?

Quite a paradox/great work
If I take heed of what you say in this song, I will not be thinking for myself and therefore not taking heed of the song. I like the sunflower symbolism, though I didn't catch that before reading your explanation. That is probably because I cannot get sunflowers to grow in my yard, thus I am unable to observe their behavior. Once caught, though, unable to toss away, thus, the paradox. Great work! A true dada masterpiece.
