Some Things Just Stick in Your Mind: Singles and Demos 1964-1967
I’d Like To Walk Around In Your Mind (Unreleased single for Immediate, 1967)

I’d like to walk around in your mind someday
I’d like to walk all over the things you say to me

I’d like to run and jump on your solitude
I’d like to rearrange your attitude to me

You say you just want peace and to never hurt anyone
You see the end before the beginning has ever begun

I would disturb your easy tranquility
I’d turn away the sad impossibility of your smile

I’d sit there in the sun of the things i like about you
I’d sing my songs and find out just what they mean to you

But most of all I’d like you to be unaware
Then I’d just wander away, trailing palm leaves behind me
So you don’t even know I’ve been there

What I Am

I think, this is the best song of an alternative rock jam band, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, their 1988 hit “What I Am” from the album Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars. Check the lyrics out… Continue reading →

There is fiction in the space between
The lines on your page of memories
Write it down but it doesn’t mean
You’re not just telling stories
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

 

 

There is fiction in the space between
You and reality
You will do and say anything
To make your everyday life
Seem less mundane
There is fiction in the space between
You and me

There’s a science fiction in the space between
You and me
A fabrication of a grand scheme
Where I am the scary monster
I eat the city and as I leave the scene
In my spaceship I am laughing
In your remembrance of your bad dream
There’s no one but you standing

Leave the pity and the blame
For the ones who do not speak
You write the words to get respect and compassion
And for posterity
You write the words and make believe
There is truth in the space between

There is fiction in the space between
You and everybody
Give us all what we need
Give us one more sad sordid story
But in the fiction of the space between
Sometimes a lie is the best thing
Sometimes a lie is the best thing

The Architect

words by  Tom Barman
(Ah, nevermind that outer space stuff, let’s get down to earth!)
What is the architect doing?
He is by the riverside
What is he thinking out there?
He is committing egocide
Now isn’t that a strange thing?
Well, to him it feels just
Oh we guess a person’s gotta do
What a person feels he must
He said:
“I won’t throw myself from the pier
I’m gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when the year is over I’ll reappear
And have a solution”
I’ve reason to believe that what I find
Is gonna change the face of humankind
And all these years before, well I was blind
That’s my conclusion
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
Now the man has understood
That outerspace is overrated
About all the problems on this Earth we should
Worry now to solve them later
And so he’s brooding and alluding on a perfect design
He thinks that working on behalf of himself is a crime
He flashes out by the water, a view so divine
He’s the architect of his own fate, a man in his prime
He said:
“I won’t throw myself from the pier
I’m gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when the year is over I’ll reappear
And have a solution”
I’ve reason to believe that what I find
Is gonna change the face of humankind
And all these years before, well I was blind
That’s my conclusion
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
(That’s it, we’re going to make it)
(Don’t let up)
(Don’t let up or we won’t make it)
(Don’t let up)
(Don’t let up or we won’t make it)
And so he drew himself a pentagon
Thinking it through a geodesic dome
From the coast of Tahiti to the hills of Rome
Step aside cause the man will take the Nobel prize home
He said:
“I won’t throw myself from the pier
I’m gonna go home and shut up for a year
And when the year is over I’ll reappear
And have a solution”
Now if these aspirations bother you
Well you are just you, you don’t have a clue
I’m sticking to the plan, I will see it through
Let there be no confusion
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
(I feel it’s touch and go)
Cause I’m the architect
