I am the one who guided you this far
All you know and all you feel
Nobody must know my name
For nobody would understand
And you kill what you fear

I call you for I must leave,
You're on your own until the end.
There was a choice but now it's gone,
I said you wouldn't understand,
Take what's yours and be damned.
VELOMANCER

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

As far as my eyes can see
There are Shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to Know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

And oh when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn Winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be Lifted from my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my Eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always Shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

And oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like Autumn winds that will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that You were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I'm Old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
VELOMANCER

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

"Dear Mister Fantasy, play us a tune
Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy

You are the one who can make us all laugh
But doing that you break out in tears
Please don't be sad.
If it was a straight mind you had
We wouldn't have known you all these years"

I got green and I got blues
And every day there's a little less difference between the two
I belly up and disappear
Well I ain't really drowning cause I see the beach from here

I could take a Greyhound home but when I got there it'd be gone
Along with everything a home is made up of
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

Sister, listen to what your daddy says
Don't be ashamed of things that hide behind your dress
Belly up and arch your back
Well I ain't really falling asleep; I'm fading to black

You could come to me by plane, but that wouldn't be the same
As that old motel room in Texarkana was
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take all of what you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

Stop me if you've heard this one before:
A man walks into a bar and leaves before his ashes hit the floor
Stop me if I ever get that far
The sun's a desperate star that burns like every single one before

And I could find another dream
One that keeps me warm and clean
But I ain't dreamin' anymore, girl, I'm waking up
So I'll take two of what you're having and I'll take everything you got
To kill this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love

All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
All I got is this goddamn lonely, goddamn lonely love
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

When she finished her laundry she was all in a quandary
And made for the street like a hare.
Her escape was so urgent, she forgot her detergent
And dropped all her clean underwear.

My feet were chilly the other night.  A song from 45 years ago came to mind:

And when God gave out rhythm
He sure was good to you.
You can add, subtract, multiply and divide...
By two.

I know today's your birthday,
And I did not buy no rose.
But I wrote this song instead and I call it,
"Popsicle Toes".

Popsicle toes.
Popsicle toes are always froze.
Popsicle toes.
You're so brave to expose all those popsicle toes.

You must have been Miss Pennsylvania
With all this pulchritude.
How come you always load your Pentax
When I'm in the nude?

We oughta have a birthday party,
And you can wear you birthday clothes
We can hit the floor
And go explore those
Popsicle toes.

You got the nicest North America
This sailor ever saw.
I'd like to feel your warm Brazil
And touch your Panama

But Your Tierra del Fuegos
Are nearly always froze.
We gotta see saw
until we unthaw those
Popsicle toes.

Popsicle toes.
Popsicle toes are always froze.
Popsicle toes.
You're so brave to expose all those popsicle toes

Jethro Tull, From "Skating Away on the thin ice of a new day"

Do you ever get the feeling that the Story's too Damn real and in the present tense?
Or that everybody's on the stage and it feels like you're the only person sitting in the audience?

(Used in an intro' to one of my nursing exams, got a 97% result on that exam from the RCN).
