Meat On The Major’s Mind

Double deals on ferris wheels with men from from Mars
Fallen popes do horoscopes in family cars
Quiet kid with candy bar wishes on stars

Holy water swimming pools are catching fire
A lifeguard sleeps in an army jeep, the major drives
Gritting his teeth at fields of sheep on which he thrives

There’s Meat on the Major’s Mind, look into his eyes
(Battle lines, bodies in their prime)
Watching him jump the gun that shoots at the sun
(The bull’s eye, see it open wide)
There’s meat in the Major’s eyes, they fall and they rise
(Some resign, while others plot their climb)
There’s Meat on the Major’s Mind, from the dawn of time
(Swinging from vines, quoting the divine)

Kids carouse the monkey house for picture frames
For photographs of chimpanzees, all toilet trained
In freshly laundered underware which does not stain

He’s got'’m in spades
He shoots bows and arrows
He’s got friends out in the yard

There’s Meat on the Major’s Mind, look into his eyes
(Battle lines, bodies in their prime)
Watching him jump the gun that shoots at the sun
(The bull’s eye, see it open wide)
There’s meat in the Major’s eyes, they fall and they rise
(Some resign, while others plot their climb)
There’s Meat on the Major’s Mind, from the dawn of time
(Swinging from vines, quoting the divine)

Later, there were 2 nervous system glitches and at least 2 ecstatic dot connecting sessions. Finally, a Need… to sing. ... more
