i write the songs

really, i just copy the lyrics when appropo…like these:

Galileo’s head was on the block
the crime was looking up the truth
as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
i try to trace them to my youth
then you had to bring up reincarnation
over a couple of beers the other night
now i’m serving time for mistakes made by another in another lifetime

how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision king of insight

i think about my fear of motion
which i never could explain
some other fool across the ocean years ago
must have crashed his little airplane

how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision king of insight

i’m not making a joke
you know me i take everything so seriously
if we wait for the time till all souls get it right
then at least i know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation in my lifetime
I’m still not right

i offer thanks to those before me
that’s all i’ve got to say
maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
now I’ve got to pay
but then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
to let the next life off the hook
or she’ll say look what i had to overcome from my last life
i think i’ll write a book

how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting sould of galileo
king of night vision king of insight how long, how long, how long

just goes to show that we come from a long line of questioners…and my soul will not get it right any time soon…and neither will those who think they’ve got all the answers.

there’s more than one answer to these questions
pointing me in a crooked line…
