proof of life

the listener cannot hear me
comparing monopolys

i’m in two minds
i am the first
i am the last

i’m living on the edge of absolute zero or 269
like two jokers waiting out of turn

it’s academic to prove, that it’s all good
rhapsody in blue when i write my master’s thesis

investigations and studies of compromising emanations
or is it just a violent storm?

i stole flowers for hitler from my mother’s garden
i’ve seen harmless graffiti stranded at the gates of hell

my field is a minefield of guns and roses
i’m studying the angles the angels left behind

so, i’m jumping in puddles to break the ice on hold
you see, black jack and black peter just can’t be nice

i blew gideon’s trumpet and gabriel’s horn
they both sounded out statements, full of regret to me

so, roll with the punches and rock the boat
nancy drew won’t help you to tame the goat

when the legends of the fall meet joe black
the magician’s nephew might pop up

there’s not a strand of evidence to suggest
harry and the hendersons should be trusted
out on kentucky avenue

while johnny rockets through medicine sunday
the fugitive is caught out on the high veldt

but getting to dylan, kid charlemagne
and go-kart mozart know it’s all too good to be true

well, the blind bride needs some sexual healing
her wedding whites are most revealing

winning ugly on the back of a salient dream
B- in the jungle if you know what i mean

but the summer of love was not the summer of ’69
in fact, it was more like the winter of our discontent

so, open the oven with pva glue
stare square into the eye of the taming of the shrew

i’ve got passion to burn
but between you and me
a microwave or crockpot
i’d rather jump into a tea cup storm

the overcoming life appears
on the page
to be

proof of life
