lyrics

In the long march of humanity . . .

Time runs out for runabout lazybones
while he complains, the earth just groans
getting ready to shake him off
The day is here and he can’t feel it
He can’t feel anything at all

For while he’s waiting, he don’t know it
a drunken stranger got inside him
getting hold of his whirling wheel
& steers him on a reckless course
steers him on a reckless course

In your eyes I can see it
the sunlight dims and the clouds start raining
& in your past you did forecast it
times were hard and your nose went past it
But the day is here, I hear you groaning
now it’s you that’s gotta show it

Will this pathetic idle creature
pull up his socks and shake death off?
or wait inside with teeth kicked out
While he picks his bleeding nose
while he picks his kicked in nose?

The day is here, he can’t afford it
in his entrails the rot’s set in
you better keep your wits about you
Save your dreams for someone else
save your dreams for some place else

In your eyes I can see it
the sunlight dims and the clouds start raining
& in your past you did forecast it
times were hard and your nose went past it
But the day is here, I hear you groaning
now it’s you that’s gotta show it

about

Pete Gioconda Brighton, UK

PETE GIOCONDA is a unique, edgy singer, a protest poet with penchant for historical reference. This mix of punk attitude and psychedelic-folk feel teases the audience to take sides ... like a Johnny Rotten (who hasn’t slept in four days) meets Times they are a-changin’-era Dylan and strolls into Cat Power’s bedroom for consolation. ... more
