    Presto, again...

    Don't ask me
    I'm just improvising
    My illusion a careless flight
    Can't you see
    My temperature's rising
    I radiate more heat than light...

    Unstable condition
    A symptom of life
    In mental and environmental change
    Atmospheric disturbance
    The feverish flux
    Of human interface
    And interchange
    The impulse is pure
    Sometimes our circuits get shorted
    By external interference
    Signals get crossed
    And the balance distorted
    By internal incoherence
    A tired mind become a shape-shifter
    Everybody need a mood lifter
    Everybody need reverse polarity
    Everybody got mixed feelings
    About the function and the form
    Everybody got to deviate
    From the norm
    An ounce of perception
    A pound of obscure
    Process information
    At half-speed
    Pause
    Rewind, replay
    Warm memory chip
    Random sample
    Hold the one you need
    Leave out the fiction
    The fact is
    This friction
    Will only be worn by persistence
    Leave out conditions
    Courageous convictions
    Will drag the dream into existence
    A tired mind become a shape-shifter
    Everybody need a soft filter
    Everybody need reverse polarity
    Everybody got mixed feelings
    About the function and the form
    Everybody got to elevate
    From the norm
    Everybody got mixed feelings
    Everybody got mixed feelings
    Everybody got to escalate from the norm
    Everybody got to emancipate from the norm
    Everybody got to elevate from the norm
    Everybody got to deviate from the norm

    Long-haired microbes named after Canadian band Rush
    Date:
    November 27, 2017
    Source:
    University of British Columbia
    Summary:
    Three new species of microbe found in the guts of termites have been named after members of the Canadian prog-rock band Rush, owing to the microbes' long hair and rhythmic wriggling under the microscope.

    The connection is they've opened for Rush. I listened to these guys obsessively in the mid 90s.

    Don't let em fool you

    Those metal bands Konrad listens to today wish they could sound like Maiden. Bruce Dickinson didn't need to pretend he had throat cancer to sing over all those guitars either.

    And now, in honor of your Mexican vacay...everybody's favorite Tex-Mex prog-rock free-jazz outfit.... complete with Spanish lyrics...(only for the musically adventurous)...



    There is a venom in numerical lies
    Your convalescent thorns
    Are but a crown of magnets
    They fold the shakes inside that third glass eye
    Come on and give it to me
    Come on and die
    In your viscera eyes
    Cataracts close the blinds
    Let me let comfort
    Come drown by your side

    If I were just arrived at a Carribean-ish beach right now, I'd need to blast this tune to kick things off

    Living is easy with eyes closed
    Misunderstanding all you see
    It's getting hard to be someone
    But it all works out
    It doesn't matter much to me

    O California, your days are clearly numbered for me, and hopefully many others. . .



    Greetings from Sodom
    How we wish you were here
    The weather's getting warmer
    Now that the trees are all cleared
    There's no time for a conscience
    And we recognize no crime
    Yeah we got dogs and Valvoline
    It's a pretty damn good time

    Men of reason, not of rhyme
    Keep the spoils and share your crime
    Goodman, Badman, lost without
    A hope for passage on the last plane out

    There was one repressed do gooder
    And a few who still believed
    Yes I think there were five good men here yesterday
    But they were asked to leave
    So we've kept the good old vices
    And labored to invent a few
    With cake in vulgar surplus
    We can have it and eat it, too

    Men of reason, hide your face
    Walking backwards, plays his ace
    Goodman, Badman, lost without
    A hope for passage on the last plane out

    Here's a concept you can't dance to
    An idea you cannot hum
    There may not be an empty seat
    When all is said and done
    I'm not the guy who sings the hymns
    No bleeding heart to mend
    But I like the part where Icarus
    Hijacks the little red hen

    Someone said the Big Man
    May be joining us soon
    But I never was the type to hang
    With the harbingers of doom
    And this party is addictive
    Self-destructive, no doubt
    So I hope that someone saves a seat for me
    On the last plane out

    Men of reason, not of rhyme
    Keep the spoils and share your crime
    Goodman, Badman, lost without
    A hope for passage on the last plane out

    Know your place in life is where you want to be
    Don't let them tell you that you owe it all to me
    Keep on looking forward, no use in looking 'round
    Hold your head above the ground and they won't bring you down
    Anthem of the heart and anthem of the mind
    A funeral dirge for eyes gone blind
    We marvel after those who sought
    New wonders in the world, wonders in the world,
    Wonders in the world they wrought

    Live for yourself, there's no one else
    More worth living for
    Begging hands and bleeding hearts will only cry out for more
    Anthem of the heart and anthem of the mind
    A funeral dirge for eyes gone blind
    We marvel after those who sought
    New wonders in the world, wonders in the world,
    Wonders in the world they wrought

    Though I know they’ve always Told you selfishness is wrong
    Yet it was for me not you
    I came to write this song

    I woke the same as any other day
    Except a voice was in my head
    It said seize the day, pull the trigger, drop the blade
    And watch the rolling heads

    The day I tried to live
    I stole a thousand beggar's change
    And gave it to the rich
    The day I tried to win
    I dangled from the power lines
    And let the martyrs stretch yeah
    Singing, one more time around
    Might do it
    One more time around
    Might make it

    Words would you say
    Never seem to live up to the ones inside your head
    The lives we make
    Never seem to ever get us anywhere but dead

    The day I tried to live
    I wallowed in the blood and mud with all the other pigs
    Singing, one more time around
    Might do it
    One more time around
    Might make it
    One more time around
    Might do it
    One more time around
    The day I tried to live, live
    I tried
    I woke the same as any other day you know
    I should have stayed in bed
    The day I tried to win
    I wallowed in the blood and mud with all the other pigs
    And I learned that I was a liar (one more time around)
    I learned that I was a liar (one more time around)
    I learned that I was a liar (one more time around)
    Just like you
    Just like you
