the way we can be




Your time does not belong here
Its my turn and its time
For me live and survive
Because your going to die soon
and I am not going to follow
and somehow its fun
being young
Time to fantasize
Reach for the skies
wail and cry
and at night I shall pretend I am dead
and though I admit that I am a little weak
I will wish I had served my country
Funny how its so damn cool to be so angry
and I got a girl whom I parry
and I got a gun
can`t imagine that there is anyone out there quite like me
Except you
but I`ll do you first
So i am the last

Cuz he is back.......and for others he was never away.


Ground Control To Major Tom



This is I
I just grow older
But somehow
Along the way I have picked up clues
I see the mistakes of my youth
But I will never move to red from blue
I feel so lucky to be full like the moon
And as bright as a star
But I have to message Ground Control.
Something's wrong with our planet.
But don't worry, We're (theoretically) on it.

This is He
Keep what you have got going on
And somehow save the day
I never filled in the gaps
I did not sense the mishaps
And I to would never move over to red form blue
You are as full as a flower in bloom
And quick as a racing car!
But I to have a message for Ground Control
Something's wrong with my planet.
But don't worry, I am (theoretically) on it.

I'll tell you what's wrong with our planet...

... when people like "Major Tom", have their creative head up their ass so far that they forget who their real friends are, or where a large majority of their bloody creativity originated.

Sorry yasdnil. This isn't a commentary on the validity of your creative expression. I like what you write; and I enjoy your contributions.

Really sorry I took the time to retrieve the lost Sigma masters for this ungrateful shit.

Sorry to hear this happened. I have heard of this type of disregard being levelled at him before though only by journalists in the odd article over the years.

What lost stuff?

As an interested observer, I would have appreciated learning that integrity and loyalty had been honored creatively by this artist at this stage in his career.

Mike Garson should have been included in David's project. I look at his absence as a personal slap in his face. It's bad enough that he had to play in the dark in the early years. All you'd hear was this wonderful piano playing from somewhere behind the fully illuminated Spiders From Mars. I was there working the shows. I know. You'd think the guy would have grown up by now.

The thread about the previously lost Young Americans Sigma Sound Master tapes is in "The Shroom Room" and can't be viewed at this time, unless logged in as a member on Soulful Planet; but when it was going full force, it was viewed by non-members as well. Mike is the one who alerted us to this issue. David's group was reportedly grateful when the tapes were returned.

It was DB's creative call on his project, and Henry Hey is a fine musician; but he's not Mike Garson... in name, or talent, let alone having the history to go with it.

Here's the thread:

Stolen Sigma Masters... Young Americans

I have to admit I knew nothing of this matter. Linda my wife and I sell on Ebay and have been doing so fro about 8 years. I left David Bowie.com.......it was a farce once David s Reality tour came to an end. 

I am a fan.........my job is to turn up and buy the recording and enjoy the performance and then go home and not consider my year in year out loyalty worthy of anything more of the artist than that  I  choose to follow said artist.

I like Mike Garson.........I have met him enough times now that he remembers me and my wife when he sees us. And  have a Garson cd numbered/signed inside the first 10 of his. Stupidly I hide them away ........I should be playing the shit out of my collections..........lol. He is awesome. I imagine writing words for him.........heck if I am going to gush eh !

Linz... I think your perspective is a healthy one on how to appreciate anyone's art.

You're a wonderful writer... and YES by all means write some lyrics for Mike.

I'm sorry I went off topic on your poetry thread.

La Zona



No you can`t ask that
You can`t meet me on the street
You can`t go near my feet
Help me die a good death
but bring me back
We are in La Zona
Help me out of my life
but don`t cut with me a knife
We are in La Zona
No don`t try to turn me on
For I must not speak above my breath
but you might like to kiss my breast
While we are in La Zona
A man holds a gun
Its a new kind of fun
So why has he not killed me?
We are in La Zona

Well that's pretty much my point Linz.

I've always heard MG say nice things about the guy too, even though he's been generally placed behind a veil over the years, except for some highlighted moments on tour from time to time. He has been a secret weapon for a lot of artists over the years, not just David. He's been an incredible teacher and mentor to anyone he's worked with, as well as being a great player.

Ever notice how the great masters are all great, because they're dead? It would have been nice if just this once, someone like David, who has all of the means, could have broken that chain.

I wouldn't call Hendrix a great master, but he certainly was an incredible musician. In his life, he was verbally trashed by guys like Townsend and a number of other rockers. He's appreciated now with abandon because he's dead and paying tribute to his memory makes money. How brave and responsible is that? Sickening, really.

Anyway... I'll get off this rag now.

What was your motivation for "La Zona"?

La Zona is a red light district in Mexico. In my words you will often pick up on about how ashamed I am about the sad things going on in our world. "Ethos " is a good documentry to watch.

Psychedelic relic
    
 

I am most certainly a leftover
from what was a simpler time
When there was free money I was the first in line
I was the blight pushed back into the face of the working classes fight
But I marched for them and for the protest I put up a good fight
Now I just talk too much about the day Mick took a drag from my cigarette
I even owned a second hand imported Corvette..

But today I have just got to face it I am a psychedelic relic
I ended up teaching because painting houses seemed a waste of time
Well hooray in my little country at least you get to have a little say
Well hooray it took me all week to find a battery for my watch I bought in 1978
yes they are right I just have to face it I am a bit of a psychedelic relic

old psychedelic relic
old psychedelic relic
old   

I had some times, some sweet girls looked my way
Its no crime to say I had it away
oh yeah I got married and went on a cruise
Five years later she left me with a big bruise on my heart
yes she was right I shouldn`t wear my socks in bed at night and smoke a pipe because I am just an old psychedelic relic

What is this I woke up and suddenly I am 72
Watching old James Bond movies and all the way through
But to my credit and I don`t let them forget it.. I never sold out.
Not me ...go on get out of it!
I might be a  psychedelic relic still living in 1968
But I was something
and I can say I am proud to be a psychedelic relic

old psychedelic relic
old psychedelic relic
old

The only thrill in this small town


She said its time it stopped
Packed up her make up
Then she left the shop
Don`t know if she was ever seen again

He got pictures of her on his wall
His parents minds did not blow
At least he is straight
Don`t know if he remained that way

Daddy drove to work at 0725 every day
Then one day he did not come home
Mother said he had died
Don`t know if she prefers that story even today

They say a squirrel knocked the power out
And 17 miners did not get home that day
"I don`t believe" I heard a firefighter say
Don`t think the papers were able to say

A woman many loved was found slain
I ran home that day
To make sure my mother was safe
Don`t know how the womans killer escaped

They sent a man to the moon
The reason like the logic is kept in someone`s pocket
So excited I could hardly keep my feet on the ground
I always thought of it as a cold place
don`t know if the killer in me deserved to be sent there to

Do they sell rice in 2lb bags?



the lingering smell of life
though i drift through it
like nipping down to the kitchen at night
nobody knows, a pity nobody cares
because nobody else lives here

my kingdom a bedsit but a gentlemans
use to hardly any space
you see i did my time and got good at doing it
but I was not so skilled at crime

they gave me a job pushing a broom
but that's okay it gives one time to create
the fakery in my imaginative mind
I work down the street from a very fine bakery

in good time I bought a car
never drove it far
found out how to pick up a girl
i`d take'em for a spin with my head in a whirl

"to me!" was my usual toast
"to us" always sounded nice
i could cook her a dinner
just buy a 2lb bag of rice

rose this morning realizing i had slept in my vest
and i have grey hair on my chest
here is trouble with stubble
silly old fool thinking out of school

someday and somehow i`ll change
buy a new shirt
a squirt of a nice fragrance
might even find patience for other people

I miss my youth
on these cold rainy days of my life
But in mind we are forever young
and she is still out there
worth the find

Thanks Linz.

Here's the link to "Ethos". 2 pound bags of rice on the other hand... I don't know.

The Soulfulplanet

Here come warmer days
Days embraced
Every minute gentle
No time to waste

Here we are strung together
Falling in love forever
From the Golden Gate to Hudson Bay
Hanging on to every word

All flights high above
No hotel room
Love the night, morning
and afternoon
Singing from our souls

Here on a branch upon
a fruitful tree
There is something greater
than you or I
We are what we achieve
On this Soulfulplanet

Here excitement filled to
the brim
Made with paint, song or
flowers
Perfect compliment to the hours
To make our art empower

Here comes our Soulfulplanet......

     


Send in the wasps

Hungry little fellows
From afar
How exactly did they get here
In some kind of jar
Come save our Californian fruit from an alien brute
Our Vitamin C is at stake
I need my morning juice
I make Lemon pie
No! Citrus fruit must not die

Send in the Wasps
The threat is not fake
Our children need goodness
That is not found in cake.... alone.
Even trying to spell the pesky pests name is driving me insane
Send in the Wasps from a far off Asian land....to repair the damage of another of man's mistakes.

i need to put the chunks back
did you clean your teeth
thats what it felt like
yeah i get all dramatic
hang on i have some more coins
there !
ask me over for a cup of tea
there is so much to say
i wish i had not drunk that last drink
how do you keep straight thoughts inside your head
at times like these?
okay this is not the first time
it takes one foot wrong
and i never could sit still
i was ugly
I was angry
I felt betrayed
there was something about you that brought things together
I know you trusted me
i messed it up
didn`t I ?
your lovely
your great in bed
your.......Hey?
