Description
Just moved, to a place by lake, away from everything and everyone. I am now a happy jazz boy! :) Okay, let's see... This is of course a different song from me, not that different, but I've tried a few different things here, like different guitars, playing the bass and also tried my first mix in Logic... As usual I play and sing everything except the drums.

Lyrics
[ beatnick ]

jumping on a train with paper pen and dreams
dharma bums can still be found it is true
jack kerouac, and william borroughs
desolation angels

jumping on a train with paper pen and booze
longshot poems for broken players
allen ginsberg and charles bukowski
this is planet news

jumping on a train with paper pen and fear
you see, love is a dog from hell
beatnick jazz and beatnick barflies
scattered poems


beatnick generation
for you


jumping on a train with paper pen and dreams
dharma bums can be found when dharma is the truth
jack kerouac, and william borroughs
desolation angels

jumping on a train with paper pen and booze
longshot poems for for broken players
allen ginsberg and charles bukowski
this is planet news

the tree looks like a dog barking in heaven

who knows
maybe language is a virus from outer space

Nice homage...
to the beats. Been a Burroughs & Kerouac (I used a
reversed Kerouac poem for 'Black Tracky') fan for many
years, this captures the flavour of the movement well.
Enjoyed it.

I loved Dharma Bums, the book, so I had to give this high
marks. I liked the Beatnik Generation chorus. Actually
reminded me of 60's British rock.

a tree also looks like heaven to a desperate dog
Quirky... lovely distant playing against up-front vocals.

What I don't like is the chorus, I confess... lyrically, it's too
obvious. I'd almost prefer "La"s... which would make it a
little more enigmatic.

Envying your talent and your place by a lake...

Thanks!
A work in progress obviously. I don't know where this is
coming from really, musically something new, but
although I am younger (late 30's) I also grew up on
Kerouac, Borroughs etc. I did not know at the time, but
now I see they meant a lot to my own artistery. I loved the
Dharama Bums too and still does! :)

I am sure a lot could be done with the lyrics here, perhaps
you are right, maybe they are too obvious and safe...
Maybe I will bring out my old scissor and do some serious
cut-up's! Ha!
