...Ok ! Me McGaskites & McGaskin
Is it right - so much that we're askin'
a Monday morning - the future & past sins
it's only a moment - with sounds
the schedules are a-changin'
the forms rearranging
you get used to it
if you've managed to stay around...
So I'll get up & do it again
my obsessions, evasions & desire to be free
autumn birds looking to the long skyways
alienated frustrated wasting my time
dissolute resolute too much in my mind
my friends on some screen
my life but a dream
don't remember a ticket
but taking the ride...
