Lyrics
ABM

Mathematical desk out a window
Game theory found in a social dilemma

Portable A bomb, a splinter group wielding it
Patterns that match he can see it all now

Always was awkward, interpersonal relations
Codebreaking genius scans periodicals


Verifiable data proof I believe it
Black ops division, Christ this is serious

Cold paranoia trapped in a nightmare
Darkness surrounding, wife is in danger

Sometimes the variables can't match the values
Sometimes they catch him running away

Wife in a frenzy, she can't believe it
Clues all around her yet hadn't seen it

Where is the implant? he cannot find it
He needs the treatments, he needs the treatments


He knows he could do it but now he's forgotten
He knows he could do it but now he's unable

Now the encoding is flashing before him
Man in the darkness is running away


Here is the puzzle that he must be solving
Radio signals will draw him away


Look all around you - this is the puzzle
She can't be real - she never gets old

This is what's real
But you can't go back
Not all at once anyway

They are still there
But yes I ignore them
I think I'm ready again


Look all around you - this is the puzzle
This can't be real - this never gets old

Look all around you - this is the puzzle
This can't be real - this never gets old


Look all around you - this is the puzzle
This can't be real - this never gets old

You playing a uke Bill?
Love the sound here. A more coherent Syd Barrett - thankfully. Solid poem there and excellent vocal performance. Dig he bass too. Is that keyboard or string?

Is that the lovely sound of a ukulele? I think is the correct spelling. Love the light feeling of this one. Great job!

I have to say that
I did not care much for the film...staunch acting all round from a superb cast...but it was not what I was expecting....however you have wrangled a very nice uke melody from the movie so it redeemerth itself in my ears 80)....nice to hear a few more ukes about the place....

Nice…
… to hear you play the Uke! The lyrics are great too… I never saw the movie, but I read the book, and it was profoundly moving/disturbing. Anyway, a very unusual subject for song lyrics, but you do a very fine job here!

"Portable A bomb, a splinter group wielding it"

Placing that lyric to a happy ukulele melody was truly inspired. Great tone from the instrument and I'm impressed by your rock solid rhythm. I know how hard it is to do that on the little sucker. Sweet changes!

The Marriage Of...
... Mathematics and Metaphysics put to song. The simplicity of the Uke vs. the complexity of the questions. It all adds up... or does it?

I'm not sure I wish to see the children this union yields. LOL!

Happy Uke'ing, Bill. ;)

Portable Avon

then I read the lyrics... Ha! (I was off on a tangent of people applying makeup while driving, but I try to refrain from doing that myself)

uke sounds good - and your range in vocals works nicely, Bill

A uke, ABM and music
Stringed instruments have plenty of physics and maths associated with them (I used to teach a physics unit on the very topic). Hence the obvious bond between the uke, ABM and fine music. Amazing song lyric choice, Bill, but you have pulled it off with ease. You have even provided a slow section that stretches time and space :-) Well done, Peter.
