Insects hover in the night
Monks walk through a blazing fire
Fat ladies are feeling tight
Ball gowns for the schoolboys’ choir

Shapely ladies rubbing thighs
Baby Buddha walks the wire
Liberace in a swarm of flies
Falls asleep with the bed on fire


Ghostly laughter among the trees
Spirits hover through the fourth dimension
Alfred Jarry’s on his knees
Knows no pain, but he feels the tension
Falls down, can’t stand up
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Fat man overfills his cup
Body frozen, but the mind will wander


Oh, the grandeur of it
Oh, the grandeur of it all


from 5000 Years Ago, released January 15, 2022
