World out of time. Gotta keep that coffee flowin'.

We're strolling in a sunny field, the sky is sparkling blue
With no one along to disturb us, it's just we too.
Her face shines with a golden lustre, hair like a raven's wing.
I can smell new-mown hay and hear the sparrows sing.

Then the dj on the radio blasts me awake
I'm running to the shower, got both legs to shake.
So I can hit the road with the rest of the lemmings.
All of us chasing after the same elusive things.

Breakfast in Paris, luncheon in Rome
Dinner in Geneva, I'm too far from home.
Conference call to Tokyo, too many drinks with Dan.
Meet someone slinky and have a one-night stand.

Yoga ladies hurry, fresh from pranas and asanas,
They're all well satisfied, they've found their nirvanas.
Muscle cars roar, dump trucks crash and tweet
Was there ever a time when life was sweet?

Life on the run, run for your life
We run like hell, surfing the strife.
Being the latest and sickest, who needs more?
Just anything to keep from being bored.

Take me to the beach, let me lounge in the sand.
I'd like a slow back rub, with no time for the man.
I'll wear sandals with socks and grow hair in my ears
Sell Electric Prunes merchandise as my new career.

Yeah, Mondo Expresso, it's not the coffee kind,
The world's going too fast, when can I unwind?
It's crazy, it's chaotic, facile and neurotic
How long can I last, I'm feeling psychotic?

This has a live feel - a very personal approach with the spoken lyrics and the one piano backing. Good lyrics. The piano drives things well. Enjoyable listen!

Different concept that works very well. The lyrics flow well and lend themselves to the spoken form you presented them in. Polished work. Well done. Regards, Peter.

Born in the backwoods of Canuckistan, Johnny spent long winter nights with his ear glued to the radio (he'd always had a problem with excess earwax), listening to all manner of music while the northern lights cavorted silently outside his window. ... [see more]
