about

Side one is a Quiet Storm ballad relating a white collar paranoid delusion.

Side two is a Cameo-style stomper ruminating on the dog days of brain age. Word down!

Track Name: Hawaiian Ice
Now that it’s gone,
It’s time to move on.

When I was sixteen,
I’d brandish a crackling
Megaphone
Down at the Hawaiian Ice stand,
And on summer’s angels, I'd read my demands,

Inflicting my victims
With lunatic dictums
In cheerful tones,
Rebuking their ignorance;

I had the brightest mind,
I meant to let it shine,

But,

Now that it’s gone,
It’s time to move on.

Thomas, a freshman,
Would lead our procession
With marching snare
And dollar store bunny ears.
(This silly obsession persisted for years.)

Mg’s of Ritalin
Made him a citizen
Past repair,
Confirming our greatest fears,

For he only presaged
That process wrought by age.
(‘Cuz what life giveth,
It certainly may taketh away.)

Now you see it,
now you don’t:
It takes the mind to admit
What the heart just won’t.

Spontaneous creation, inspiration: wasted, long gone astray.

Now that it’s gone,
It’s time to move on.
