about

Time for Signs is another song I wrote on my own early on and got help from Mitch King Kong Girio to shape it up.

Like many of my songs it's a bit of a rant about the state of things and the world we live in. Basically all my songs are love songs or rants and in some cases both.

The cool thing about this track is that we decided to use the Theremin I had bought after seeing Angelo from Fishbone tear it up as 'Dr. Madd Vibe'. Well it turns out that thing is super hard to play very well so it's just in there a bit haha.

lyrics

Time for signs (Gladstone 2006)

A song about greed rips through my mind
A reaching glow across the tree-torn sky
Glossing over the times that stung
filling our spaces with the promise of fun

I’d like to be in a mood carefree
I’d like to take a little time to dream
No more saluting of bureaucracy
New world rhythms are way off beat

Chorus (instrumental)

A shift to the right marks the sign of our times
Election and selection are a march of dimes
A ballot in the box just another blue pill
Independence co-opted as we market free will

Chorus

Put me back in a mood carefree
Tell me more about my hopes and dreams
Scare me straight about democracy
And remake our world in the image of greed
