high on amphetamines
the moon is a lightbulb breaking
it'll go around with anyone
but it won't come down for anyone

To make the scene like you always do
goin' up stream down the avenue, to fuck some trophy boy that you win tonight at the bar.
So bad, so far. you'll make him sad, shooting star.

christ, ignore me

all spit and spite you're up all night and down every day
a tired man with only hours to go just waiting to be taken away
getting in to the back of a car for candy from some stranger
watching the parade with pinpoint eyes full of smoldering anger

nah he had some right dark thoughts tho didnt he....

can't you ever treat anyone nice
I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
they draw the curtain, wait for a call
pretty lucky if they get any kind of response at all

like me :)

which is what i love

had to post all this one..

I never really had a problem because of leaving
But everything reminds me of her this evening

So if I seem a little out of it, sorry
But why should I lie?
Everything reminds me of her

The spin of the earth impaled a silhouette of the sun on the steeple
And I got to hear the same sermon all the time now from you people
Why are you staring into outer space, crying?
Just because you came across it, and lost it

Everything reminds me of her
Everything reminds me of her
Everything reminds me of her

A change of scene, a change of style....
Not just not crap, but absolutely brilliant.
Definitely one of my favourites. One of the few singer-songwriters who I've consistently listened to, not got bored by when I grew up and who I still rate just as highly...

Hey, Dean Yager!
Iam said:
*Iam never ceased to be amazed by Balbi's powers of observation*
*Balbi spent life in perpetual shock at Iams constant failure to take into account the time of posting, and units of alcohol consumed*

:eek: <<< like that, i am :(

Huge fan. Just discovered this old documentary (28 minutes). They didn't get a lot of time with him but i'm a fan so always good to see new stuff.
ETA: I'd only watched the first 11 minutes when i said they didn't get a lot of time with him. It turns out they got a fair bit of time with him (including persuading him to fake cutting off his own right hand and getting a robot replacement).
