Lyrics
Pakaluni's Tiki Bar

Why not see us for the way we are?
They say you're a friend of mine.
We've been gathering goods for hours.
We say they are mostly blind.

Melancholy is a place of woe;
It will let you slowly sink.
Can't escape no matter where you go.
You know you're the weakest link.
~
Why not meet me at the Tiki bar?
They say it's the end of times!
It's been rather good so far...
They say there are lots of signs.

Pakaluni's is the place to go!
I'll meet you for a drink.
We can question every thing we know.
Ask me what you think.

~~~

Why not see us for the way we are?
You say you're a friend of mine.
You've been gathering goods for hours.
You say we are mostly blind.

Pakaluni's is the place to go!
You'll meet me for a drink.
They can question every thing we know.
Ask them what I think.
~~
We can laugh at the end of time,
And discuss what we think.
I can laugh with the best friend of mine,
And watch this island sink...

They can laugh at the end of time,
And discuss what they think.
I can laugh with the best friend of mine,
And watch our island sink...

You can laugh at the end of time,
And discuss what you think.
I can laugh with the best friend of mine,
And watch your island sink...

Love, love, love, love...

Macjams is a what?
I don't think you can make a case for us being a pack. Love the wordplay and the unsettling shifting chords as the boat pulls away from shore and the island slowly sinks in the west.

:) oo this is perfect! I don't know what I like better, the chords, Lyrics, or mellow attitude :) The detachment from the fear is really enjoyable and fun! I love the blend of chords :)

Excellent meanering melody - kinda loopy
in a good way. you really outdid yourself here - signature VW brains and passion mixed with musical sophistication. The ending is amazing - inspired title too.

Quirky and clever. A major production that tells a story. I like the way your voice holds its matter-of-factness throughout, even into the ordeal of fire and water. Excellent post.

That
is some detached, misanthropic delivery, Bill. I imagine a pack of loonies will fill every bar on December 20th on into the wee hours of December 21st. Just another excuse to drink. Eerie but appropriate music at the end of this ditty. Genius.

.
first one to mention the easter egg! guess where it came from?

Pakaluni's Tiki Bar is on Manua island - about 6 centimeters above sea level

it was really fun working on a song again

thanks for listening

So glad you had fun making music again...
because we had fun listening. No idea what you're on about but, even with the dissonance(s), it sounds great and wholly appropriate.

The variety of posts for this challenge is great and hardly surprising considering the variety of members here and their widely varying interests and backgrounds. Cheers.

i'm likin' the vibe a lot- makes me want to reach over for my drink. did you purposely bury the vocals about 2:30 in...? It's like the alcohol taking over- and you melt into this melange of intoxicatingly groovy sound

sinking islands
A new take on psychedelic vibes, this has the added element of breaking it into segments with tempo changes that make for a strong development right up to the unfortunate conclusion (for the song's doomed characters). It makes me think of another group I like who used this technique but I can't recall the name. Anyway, this is a great song Bill and I'm glad you had fun with it. I certainly did!

What will survive....
of the human race is the moments of true "Love" we have shared with each other unselfishly; the best of each one of us that we had and did give to one another. I still think, tongue in cheek, that Douglas Adams (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) had it right ~ "Just hang the sense of it all, and keep yourself busy." Maybe the answers our souls' long for will come in the next life. Luv You Always Bill

Post Script....

Over my head, at least musically, but it sure works without "understanding" too. Cool stuff for sure. Thanks.

Take care,

Very impressive.
From the quirky [but most excellent] song, this develops into something both magnificent and terrifying. The build up is really, really cool. Like this very much.

Oddly light and dark
at the same time. I might have to consider you for an end of times party invite. I saw your forum post and I have to say you are right on. Has it been a year? and at the same time in ways we have moved beyond. The song is a collage of sound supporting the lyric. The ending especially captures the fury of disaster and seems to end on the desolate peace of the aftermath as the wind subsides. Nice.
