  • c) Front Song
  • d) Middle Song
  • e) End Song (Front Song reprise)
  • There once was a man from the old stone age
  • And he used to follow the weather
  • But now he's got hung up on filling a page
  • Upon whether to go or together
  • And he's been around for so damn long
  • With his whooping and wailing
  • Crushing questions between right and wrong
  • And impaling
  • The best he can hope and the worst he can fear
  • On the solstices of an illusion
  • A massive erection of pushy defence
  • Up the whole of the prosecution
  • Great solace the wound, great relish the pain
  • To be loosing the reins of a poem
  • To bleed from the tip of my tongue yet again
  • That part of my heart that is showing
  • These children conceived in the womb of this crash
  • To be the sponsors of nothing much more
  • Than rearguard directions of crossfingered sections
  • Of purpose pot - looking for nothing
  • But what is this last desperate vestige of heart over head
  • But another conjecture
  • No more the tomb of the martyred dead
  • Than the ghost of our parting gesture
  • And a hundred billion crystal balls
  • Represent a remarkable failure
  • To swell the song each moment long
  • At the counterpoint of nature
  • As four thumbs flick the tarot deck
  • And two tongues fork eight aces
  • Maybe sixteen fingers feel
  • The fool lives in two places
  • Where rosy lee can read this tea
  • And leave me living the story
  • A white dove with a hawks' head
  • And an open mind before me
  • To sail for a land where life is a high
  • Not a word to be heard or be spoken
  • But the soul - woven web of the endless touch
  • Of a child who could never be broken
  • Who plays a new world on the brink of the ebb
  • As the fish cats prowl in the harbour
  • And now soars high on the beckoning tides' long arm
  • To weigh his last anchor
  • And the sou'westers sing as the lifeboat bells ring
  • In the heads on the faces of changes
  • The heavens collage on excalibres edge
  • The star in his movie converges
  • With fate, in his task, and doom on his brow
  • And a ship in his eye in a bottle
  • Who speeds, to force, to want, to have,
  • To find, to further fortune,
  • Who comes from the north, west, south and east
  • Of the passions of a spirit
  • Witl all the flight of the wildest beast
  • To ever spurr a stirrup,
  • Whose pulse is the master of action
  • Whose heart is an everlasting secret
  • Whose arms are desire
  • Whose lips are welcome
  • Whose eyes tell stories
  • Whose head is a journey
  • Whose hands unfold
  • Whose feet fly
  • Whose face is the stained glass window of a continuous orgasm.
  • Whose being is mine
  • Whose wounds are precious
  • Whose poem is a flower
  • Whose gentleness is the devil
  • Whose indentity is *****
  • Whose magic is a gift
  • Whose power is the transparent tapestry of history
  • Whose stamp is a freak
  • Whose wits are battles
  • Whose cousin is dog
  • Whose times are well fought for
  • Whose stoneage is clever
  • Whose poets know
  • Whose music is barbarian
  • Whose artists are helpless spherical mirrors spinning on the horns of a tidal
  • wave
  • Whose information is belief
  • Whose complexes become religion
  • Whose foundation is spread
  • Whose word is god
  • Whose books are projectiles
  • Whose message is must
  • Whose excuse is holy
  • Who passed it down to me;
  • Whose enemies are landmarks
  • Whose fear is himself
  • Whose hope is lust
  • Whose wish is fresh
  • Whose position is wary
  • Whose mottoes are covers
  • Whose name is hidden
  • Whose nose is suspicious
  • Whose technology is a tangent
  • Whose strategy is dissent
  • Whose thoughts are games
  • Who shares his lot
  • Whose ace is death
  • Whose fingers invent
  • Whose tales weave
  • Whose knots are tied
  • Whose mouth is open
  • Whose ears pierce
  • Whose direction is out
  • Who is aware of disease
  • Who feels the need to cleanse his soul
  • Whose style is disguise
  • Whose dream is innate
  • Whose woman is soothing
  • Whose little children are the delicate blossom of an orchard of electricity
  • Whose spell is for conflict
  • Whose quest is strength
  • Whose war declared
  • Whose suicide is noticed
  • Whose shadow is cast
  • Whose vibes you feel
  • Whose pedigrees are haunted
  • Whose age is unknown
  • Who takes under his wing
  • Whose freaks are real
  • Whose reality is hunger
  • Whose words are jagged
  • Whose tears are shed
  • Whose sick hang
  • Whose weak are kicked
  • Whose cities are bad shelters
  • Whose sanctuary is an idea
  • Who sat round a fire
  • Whose teeth chew
  • Whose faith is change
  • Whose old age comes quickly
  • Whose youth burns
  • Whose systems are white sticks tapping walls
  • Whose prize posession is the planet;
  • Whose wildest lust is escalation
  • Whose cul-de-sacs are feelers
  • Whose main route is massive
  • Whose run is a dance
  • Whose vehicle is fantasy
  • Whose home is high
  • Whose role continues
  • Whose bearing is savage
  • Whose saints are dead
  • Whose sons bark
  • Whose daughters play
  • Whose strength is against
  • Who grows in the sun and sleeps in the moon
  • Who roams deserets, plateaux, mountains, forests and plains with vast armies
  • Who am I
  • The spirit of those who were not here
  • And never knew it
  • Who left this prayer to elope
  • A lover's journey through it
  • So children leave your windows open
  • Across the sea
  • Join our hands across the many land
  • You and me
  • Never grown old
  • Seeing without ever being told
  • Something to say
  • Shut away
  • Blackboard so grey
  • Anyway
  • I'm dreaming
  • Out along the back row
  • Out the window
  • Cast away
  • Be free with me
  • Today
  • Great heart mean streak
  • Spare part speed freak
  • I set myself a problem when I built myself a wheel
  • I got myself another when I rode a horse to feel
  • The plains underneath my reins
  • As fast as running water
  • And the big lady I'm playing with
  • Has played a game of poker
  • With me and cat and this and that
  • Until she scored my joker
  • Now we ride in chariots
  • By the side of one another
  • Her soft side
  • My rough ride,
  • Nothing to fear
  • The unknown soldier's grave is already here
  • Is it too late
  • To create
  • A world made with care
  • Is it there
  • Or fleeting
  • Here today and gone
  • Tomorrow's child
  • Looking so wild and free
  • Are we a choice
  • With no voice
  • Can it be
  • Great heart, mean streak
  • Spare part speed freak
