Wouldn't it be nice
if noone tried to change the world
I wonder where their time would go
Sleep tight, the wind blows
and all the leaves are down
but there's no more time for raking, not for wasting not for me

No more, not for me

Six oclock, We're on a plane to Paris
and in our dreams we're landing
Go to a party in Andalusia
and I spin around the scene

Six oclock, on a plane back here from Paris
And I been around that scene. (or) was it all just dreams

the desert, I believe it all

uber alle la la la la
is Good is great
comin' down the mountain

the perception of the possible image
imaginary possible perception
perceive the imaginary possibilites

Squirrelly playful on a perfect day
I got the red car blues

Hugging trees
Hugging knees
tugging my strings

Perfectly squirrelly on a playful day
riding the red line into the ground
quietly taxing my resolve
fuzzy in every way

Hugging trees
Hugging knees
tugging my strings

My grey flannel armour
has been shred to rags
flay open my skin
and pour salt in

I don't want to see you
I don't want to see you
I don't want to see you go

Lying next to me I am
lying to myself, then I'm thinking
what is lying
but an acknowledgement
of the truth

I sit I stand I lie on the Couch

Hidden truths lie between the lines
Apparent lies are sometimes the truth

what lies behind you
and when you look
is it now ahead

The Short of It

3x [4x C - G - E (2 measures)]

You will not go anywhere today
That silly little bottle and the cigarettes
Just won't go away

A room full of dreams
You've got to admire the view
But they are from another place
Worlds apart from you

And so you stand there
Wondering what to do
And if you have another one
It may come to you


Your mind turns inward
Shutting off the view
And then its time to shut it off

You will not go anywhere today
That silly little bottle and the cigarettes
Just won't go away

That silly little bottle and the cigarettes
Just won't go away

I don't mind your babypowder
I don't mind your makeup, too

I don't mind your babypowder makeup
Just one thing, just makeup your mind


Purple flowing afternoon
your eyes a light, I can't fight

I don't mind that you don't mind
Just one thing, what's on your mind


I see you've got your shiny pants on, tonight
I see you've got shiny lips, too

I can see

time and space will part

I can see

the moment's a limit
just an end

There's that creepy guy again
She thinks, I just want to dance
Get up and dance, get up and...
Boy he's really sweating now, she thinks
but he sure can dance
I wonder if he's ready to get up again, ready to...
She's going home
He's going home
They're all alone
Until the next time they

Dead bird in the parking lot
don't know how it got there

someone painted lines
someone drew the line
how could they not see
someone crossed the line

I'm not under where

Pretty peace punk came up to me
said you seen my friend?
looks a bit like Jesus
'cept he's nearing the end

Said I think I seen him wandering
about a block away, seem like good people maybe there he can rest

Seems some people jumped him
beat him up, cause he looked like Jesus
Welcome to the new Rome

Chorus (on 2s):

In this Parade of errors
A missing dove formation
when will we find peace

--> twice through
On a heavy gravity day
(when) the wholeness of two
approaches three

I was never beautiful
I can't let you break my heart that way
'cause I can 
(break my heart over you)

They're selling hate, I can't relate
Traveling at the speed of sight
I ain't buyin

They're selling hate, and I ain't buyin'
Traveling at the speed of sight
there's no time

When the day is lite
and two expands 
to three 

I was never beautiful
I can't let you break my heart that way
'cause I can 
(break my heart over you)

fleur de lis (?) arrangement (suggestion)

start with vaguely classical (guitar only) intro (motif statement) 
section 1:Chris and I join in with the rougher accompaniment (bass on odd  E  chromatic pattern to A and back ,
               guitar with fracturing of motif) 
section 2: E.F...E.D...E.F...E.D. C .
section 1
section 2
section 3: 2x[  A.B.C.D ]    (bass) also from jam recording
section 4:C.G.A.E  classical feel (the section Dave has been trying to 
work in) section 1 section 2 section 3
end         resolve in A

	so the flow is:

the intro - the little surfy thing?  Em thing with the surf/minor blues riff (dorian methinks),  with the  e/g e/g thumping bass?

Also, part 2 - the E - F  E D over A/a# - thing - I think that's best made to start simpler and grow richer for  a creciendo refrain on the 
part -as it's already such a stretch from the original.   What I've been 
playing on that part (for over 10 years)  is a simple Asus2 A#sus2 - maybe we can figure a simple version of part 2 and a maxed out part 2?

I'm not sure, but I think we also had a medley with Mancini's "Shot in 
the Dark", right?   Somewhere between part 2 and the close?  (shrug)

For closing, erhaps we can do a wind down (like Shiney pants) but with a little more dischord to resolve in a resonant A?
