i will go ahead and say what i can only just sing about
getting down to the unrehearsed cracked shell
may we meet again someday or today……
two peas in a pod went riding down the avenue together
pointing out all that they seen
like some crazy bird with black crown between us
i wanted so bad to lift you up…
oh but this is the only kind of exercise you have
watching you rise and fall didn’t those minutes pass
with applause at last
you were so strong you got yourself out
you were soooo strong you got yourself out
so i had to resist the desire to help
i —- and everyone else

Songwriters’ Comments:

Peter Blegvad:  This was recorded late at night, unfocused, and I guess I was trying not to disturb anyone. It’s a brand new song (still in progress, really). I play what Wiki defines as, “Jew’s harp, jaw harp, mouth harp, or Ozark harp, trump and juice harp. Thought to be one of the oldest musical instruments in the world.”

Peter Holsapple: The harmonica is my two year old’s plastic one since I couldn’t find my own.

Dave Schramm: A different approach to the message in Captain Beefheart’s Space Age Couple.  This one more a lament than an admonishment.
