THE LONGEST SHORT WALK

platform

‘Station at Perpignan’
by Salvador Dali


I recently discovered this lyric from back in 2013 – my first year at uni. It was from a song I can’t find the demo of. I remember it was a simple acoustic ballad. Anyhow, at least I’ve got the words.


Day turns to twilight on the railway platform
I’ve been here forever or does it just seem that way?
I sit cold and alone as a new star is born
Wondering if I should leave now or should I stay?


It’s the waiting that kills me
Questions bought – questions sold
Knowing the answers
A future foretold


The last time I saw you – you told me a secret
Then took yourself off to where I don’t know
I heard on the grapevine you lost yourself somewhere
But you’re coming home now along with the snow


Trains now and then arrive at the station
Lovers and workers alight and go home
My collar is up to keep out the east winds
I wish that time would just leave me alone


Remember in summer – the lakeside – the orchard
The small narrow pathway to the top of the tor
Remember that secret – the one I believed in
Right now I wonder what was it all for?


The guard tells me the last train has now left for Zion
That there’s no point in me being here anymore
I nod in agreement – feel for my car keys
And take the longest short walk right out of the door


It’s the waiting that kills me
Questions bought – questions sold
Knowing the answers
A future foretold – a future foretold


What about a Heartbroken Groove? It’s another of my backing tracks that make for listening as well. I hope you enjoy;

100 YEARS FROM NOW


The sky will last forever
The clouds are temporary
In a 100 years from now
What remains will be a poisoned sea


winter


Some will call it tragic
When the sea puts on its show for free
Just rotting fish and plastic
A becalmed toxic destiny


folkestone sky


Idiots and profiteers
Sit back and watch it on TV
The carcasses of whales
The cloak of everlasting synthetic debris


clouds dover (2)


It’s already far too late to save
The art of sky and clouds and sea
Maybe you’ll have a picture on the wall
Of nature’s old days creativity


dover harbour


Now we play the end game
Though blind fools will disagree
That once a long, long time ago
All of life on Earth crawled out of the sea

TWO FACES

All Winter Long Cover

‘China Album Cover’


On the one hand it’s been a good week as I’ve just got my music into China. Hopefully the bespoke for ‘China only’ album ‘All Winter Long’ will be heard there via all the major streaming platforms. That’s the plan anyway. On the other hand, I’ve got the flu and and can’t sing a note right now as my voice sounds like I’ve got a clothes peg attached to my nose plus I could do with a body temp of 37 C/98.6 F again. Anyhow, time for new music words;


TWO FACES
I don’t know the freeway from the forest
Don’t know sunshine from moonlight
I’ve a head full of sand and sawdust
I see no colours, just black and white


Life, you have two faces
You’re a door without a key
Demons & angels trading places
Where nothing comes for free


An open prison I can’t escape from
You’re a thief but you don’t care
You’re an addiction without a needle
So you fix, sometimes you share


I’ll lose my dreams if can’t disguise them
Soon I won’t know tomorrow from today
You’re the god, you are the devil
You’re winter’s midnight midday in May


Talking about the album for China, here’s ‘All Winter Long’ originally from my ‘Rainbows End’ album;


Fancy a ‘Mysterious Grove’? It’s one of my backing tracks but you might find it OK to relax to – hopefully.


And here, one of the other places where ‘Mysterious Groove’ lives and can be downloaded;

CHARCOAL CARTOONS

”Outside the Unknown’



DARK SIDE OF NOWHERE
Stay away from the entrance
Shut your eyes, you’re immune
On the dark side of nowhere
You’re a charcoal cartoon


Like nightmares and dreams
Lookalikes never look back
They say there’s no in-between
When you’re just one of the pack


I’ll write new a song
Dedicate it to you
With words you can’t count on
If only you knew


A heart full of hurt
Don’t mend on its own
You only find yourself
Inside the unknown

THE DAY THE TREES DISAPPEARED

zoolon12

Zoolon’s Simple Take on Trees


I wouldn’t like to be a tree in the Amazon right now. Having said that I probably wouldn’t particularly want to be a tree in the first place. I’d never get to see The Arsenal play again or get to eat macaroni cheese. Then there’s dogs with an urgent need to think about, plus if I become a tree I guess all my guitars would get sold on eBay.


More seriously, even though science has proven trees interact with one another and given that they reduce erosion, moderate the climate, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store a mass of carbon in their tissues, plus trees and forests provide a habitat for many species of animals, insects and plants who would otherwise die out, we chop the lot down for a ton of pathetic reasons. Mainly it’s all about humans making big money whatever the damage to the planet they leave behind. Short term thinking? Too right it is.


Relevant to my mini rant, here’s my protest song ‘Sunlight & The Dust’ along with a few more ‘new photos of old photos’ almost forgotten.

The spaceman from a green blue planet stopped by to pay us a visit and say “hello”
Earthman offered him a ready meal wrapped in plastic and a home delivery pizza just for show


20191109_105434 (2)


Spaceman said, “Man you’ve some great trees here, it’s a shame you’ve not got that many anymore”
Earthman just shrugged and said “That’s how we like it, besides we don’t eat apples like before”


20191109_110529 (2)


“You’re kidding me, the trees keep you lot well and alive, their fruit is the best thing you can get
This rubbish you just served up isn’t for me mate – it’s less a meal; more a bloody threat”


As I mentioned before all my albums can be streamed on SPOTIFY  they are also available to download from BANDCAMP

JUST THE MIRROR PLAYING GAMES

‘Come a Frozen Morning’


How do you write over-the-top surreal lyrics like Dylan? I’m thinking Desolation Row style here. Answer: basically you don’t. He’s one of a kind. Even so, that doesn’t mean we can’t try.


I NEVER UNDERSTOOD
You had a dream in the beginning
You had a dream that sounded good
Why you woke up and lived the nightmare
I never understood


You climbed the mountain after midnight
Under the light of a full moon
I heard that come a frozen morning
You stole the big shot’s hot air balloon
You ended up among the gravestones
Where dead bodies know their place
You dressed yourself in magazines
Put on your bravest face


The letter you said you sent me
Never made it to base camp
A mailman in the snowstorm died
His body cold and damp
And inside looking out
You see a heaven upon earth
But that’s just the mirror playing tricks on you
That’s a fact for what it’s worth


In summer we light the candles
The sun don’t shine no more
In summer the sea gets restless
And besides this world’s at war
With every living species
Well maybe just the one’s that make most noise
That’s only heard by deaf ears
And the Pan’s poisoned lost boys


You had a dream in the beginning
You had a dream that sounded good
Why you woke up and lived the nightmare
I never understood
