Lyrics
Aliens by Charles Bukowski

You may not believe it but there are many people who go through life
with very little friction or distress
They dress well
Sleep well
They are contented with thier family life
They are undisturbed and often feel very good
and when they die it is an easy death
usually in thier sleep
You may not believe it but such people do exist
But I am not one of them
Oh no I am not one of them
I am not even near to being one of them
But they are there
And I am here

bukowski!
I went through a phase here all I would read is bukowski . I like the heavy bass , the vocals remind me of poltergiust when the girl is stuck in the tv. Androids have taken over.
it would have been cool if for maybe for a moment some structure coul have happened. I suggest you listen to my life in the bush with the ghost by eno thanks for sharing

Thanks...
...for listening and for the constructive criticism. I was going for an amorphous vibe on the whole thing. It was an experiment from beginning to end. I felt it was in keeping with Buk's aesthetic. As he once said"As the spirit wanes, the form appears." I will check out your recommendation and see what I can learn from it.

Very cool.
I like this a lot. I know not Bukowski, however I heartily recommend My Life in the Bush of Ghosts - a collab between Eno and David Byrne. Terrific album - seminal. Also check out Eat Static - The Aliens EP. More dancey, but similar sound beds to this one.

Good stuff.

Thanks for listening
I would never presume to have Buk's thought process thanks for that comment.I bet he would probably hate my piece using his poetry. I read one of his poems one time about how some composer sent him a recording of some music they wrote with his poetry in it and how he hated it. - Gosh you've a lot of songs on your page.
