Bacon All Over

(MP3) Lyrics: Talysman

Arrangement: Talysman

Album: Right of Reply

In an entirely different newsgroup (alt.slack), someone expressed a desire to hear a song about an explosing at a pig parts processing plant entitled "Bacon All Over". Since it didn't look like anyone else was about to record this song, Talysman obliged.

Lyrics

pig plant explosion! swine are in the sky! someone left the boiler runnin' and now they've blown it sky high!

bacon all over, rinds are on the ground,

Rogue Agent

(unrecorded) Lyrics: Talysman

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

empty building, empty halls
bits of plaster on the floor
cracks in ceilings, cracks in walls
rats and vermin I ignore
now it's begun
gotta find my way inside
I'm on the run
and there's no where I can hide
rogue agent on the run
cybernetic gadgetry
is my savior, is my friend
engineering ancestry
gives advantage in the end
but it's begun
gotta find a place to hide
I'm on the run
and there's no one on my side
rogue agent on the run

Dancehall Dreams

(unrecorded) Lyrics: Talysman

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

the dancehalls mutter in my dreams

(everything grows, everything rises) the century's bursting at the seams (everything grows, everything rises)

high kicks, swirling skirts multicolored laughter rose red, swirling lines burst in vibrant song the gentlemen with hats of silk

(everything grows, everything rises) dream of tasting mother's milk (everything grows, everything rises)

sharp lines, curlyqueues multicolored laughter straw hats, swirling lace

Syntactical Soccer

(unrecorded) Lyrics: Talysman

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

verbal sleight-of-tongue slick with quick wit and references to Jung insert random sarcasm allusion to orgasm and finish with a pun

syntactical soccer boot the ball toward the goal syntactical soccer fill the conversational hole

literate alliteration trip of the lip with assonance and rhyme metaphor and simile and a touch of sophistry served with sage and thyme

syntactical soccer boot the ball toward the goal syntactical soccer fill the conversational hole

goin' down to the drug store, buy me a skein of yarn

Into One

(MP3)

Lyrics: Talysman

Arrangement: Charlie

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

and now will come soft rain I hear the thunder and know its name I seem to see my opposite in moth-like stars and refuse pits they're both the same

it's my life, it's my end it's my foe, it's my friend mother and daughter, father and son, all the world around me bleeds into one

I gaze up at the sky the sun's so bright, it makes me cry I seem to see my shadow soul

Morris Chickens

(MP3 Original) ( Acoustic MP3)

Lyrics: Talysman

Arrangement: Charlie

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

it was a morris chicken, so heavy in the sack
I tied up his beak, he let out a squeak
as I threw him across my back
I stole back to my humble home and tossed him in a cage
I swore that I would train him to dance
and put him on the stage
CHORUS:

have you never seen a chicken?
have you never seen a bird?

Pretending I'm Somewhere Else

(MP3)

Lyrics: Talysman

Arrangement: Charlie

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

the heavy skies were shattered
as the gray rain hit the ground
and all around
my life is moist with missed
opportunities
outside, emotions clamored
and the crowd was in control
they take their toll
but I can toss aside with pride
these indignities
yes, all of these

(CHORUS)

for I am far away
when life is gray
and I'm living in a world that few can know
somewhere else is where I am

Reverse Archaeologist

(MP3)

Lyrics: Talysman From an idea by Zusty

Arrangement: Charlie

Album: Right of Reply

Lyrics

transit across the painted wastes
propelled by the desert's golden sand
the man with secrets in his eyes
takes our future in his hand

future archeaologist
pilfering through time
screen the dazzle from our eyes
clear our present
clean the grime
ar-chae AWWWW! LOGIST!
turn away from your past!
ar-chae AWWWW! LOGIST!
tell us your forecast!
