Ten

Delusion minus
culture minus remorse,
equals reality.

Latest Drugs On The Street

sacred drugs of society
changing with cultures
throughout cultures
throughout history

cave men were stoners
rocking in religious trances
sound light colour visions
check blown pigment hands

magic mushrooms
sacred in ancient Egypt
belladonna mandrake
hashish mescaline

opium cannibus
marijuana cocaine

alkaloids in ergot
ergotamine ergonovin
lysergic acid used
in the synthesis

of hallucinogen LSD

names of lost legendary
cults soul search dedicated
to religious trance producing
hallucinogenic vision effects


drugs are release endemic
to the human condition
a truly global phenomena
I take mine as coffee not tea

drugs keep the world going
Starbucks supply a selected fix
Elizabethan coffee house fad
reborn in new world origin
enables the world to steam on

medicated generics
allow less stable
less healthy minds bodies
to stay job course

until roll out
retirement time
or redundancy
nips worker in bud

morphine physician prescribed
self medicated pain killing
good spirits joy drug to die on

to embalm our newly deceased
a mixture of formaldehyde
methanol and ethanol
are solvents of proven choice

one thing is certain drugs
have accompanied humanity
through life through death
throughout all ages of man

now at this point I must confess
Christ is my drug of choice
freely chosen for eternal rest

CULTURE AND NATURE

CULTURE AND NATURE

Culture and nature
Are poles apart
The war torn sky
Unhinges the individual
To look up and look down
Always on the way
Happy or dismayed
Flattering himself
Or the other
Cry for indulgence
To his mother.

Song: Popular Culture

Oh I'm sick to death of spin,
And this banal, self-serving sin,
That justifies usurpation like a king.
When shove will come to push,
Weilding power without blush,
This vigilante State is so right-wing!

Pop, pop, popular history,
Grows a crop of myth and mystery,
Where legends reap the cynical flattery,
That maintains the lie:
Of who we are,
What we've become,
In whose name,
Was violence done;
Of why we're here,
And how we came.
Who's excused,
And who's to blame.
Of where we're going,
And where we're from;
And what we're doing,
To right the wrongs...

Pop, pop, popular culture.
Does it diminish or exalt ya?
Pop, pop, popular culture.
Is it Art or just sheer torture?

Pop, pop, popular culture;
Soporific by it's nature,
From mediocre to bad.
Pop, pop, popular culture,
Confers on all a bland inertia,
Embracing every fad:
Of how we look,
The way we feel;
What is image,
And what is real.
Of what to eat,
And what to wear;
How best to cheat,
Or how to care.
The puzzle of love,
The seizures of hate;
How best to survive,
The quirks of cruel fate.
The rule of the stars,
Or the lives of the great;
Hints from the famous,
To grow and create...

Pop, pop, popular culture.
What you love, and what insults ya.
Pop, pop, popular culture.
What you hate, and what co-opts ya.

Oh I'm bored to bits by cant.
And all that ritualised behaviour,
The patriotic fervour,
That is the flavour of the year.
To my cups I'll so decant,
For from high the view is clear:
The world below is idiot,
The age of farce is here!

Pop, pop, popular culture.
Selling slops of dizzy rapture.
Pop, pop, popular culture.
Nurtures minds to easy capture:
What could be wrong,
What could be right,
When a little change,
Inspires a fight,
For what we think,
Or how we live,
Should we repent,
More than we give?
Can our actions
Be so believed,
When some are censured,
And some reprieved..?

Pop, pop, popular history,
Scuttles verity in a lonely estuary,
And sinks the well of common fallacy:
That heroes never die!
Pop, pop, popular history,
Expels reality to forbidden territory,
And absurdly plays tragedy,
As a slick slapstick comedy,
To entertain the lie:
Of who we are,
What we've become,
In whose name,
Was violence done;
Of why we're here,
And how we came.
Who's excused,
And who's to blame.
Of where we're going,
And where we're from;
And what we're doing,
To right the wrongs...

Pop, pop, popular culture,
Pulls out all stops to pimp and pander.
Pop, pop, popular culture,
Dead of meaning, truth or candour.
Pop, pop, popular culture,
Where vultures feed on lies and slander.
Pop, pop, popular culture,
The carrion flesh that's propaganda!
