Let's Get Drunk!

Man, I can’t believe I never posted this tune. Here goes!

There are two parts to my brain. The creative part just keeps pumping out ideas and I do my best never to get in it’s way. Then there’s the second part of my brain, the editor. He likes to ruminate, to filter, to contextualize. He’s the one that hammers and polishes those raw ideas into something. He’s just as important to the process. But sometimes he gets a unhappy with his role in things. Sometimes he blanches at the ideas that the first part of my brain comes up with.

“That’s too obvious”, he’ll offer.

“Really? A song called about getting drunk”, he’ll grumble.

That’s when I tell him to shut up and play his role.

Which is to say, yes, I did in fact write a song called “Let’s Get Drunk.” Well, the words at any rate. CB wrote the music for this little ditty and then I crammed as many lyrics as I could into it.

Attentive listeners may note that the song with the most obvious title in history manages to mention Thoreau. I never made it all the way through Walden, but I tried on two occasions and still managed to get a lot out of it.

Interesting tidbit, I actually called out other bands for using lyrics like “let’s get drunk”. I wrote this song before we did that interview, so I’m totally a hypocrite.

Last tidbit, two people in the world know me as “the grim reaper”.

…enough rambling. Let’s Get Drunk!

Let’s Get Drunk

[]2

music by c. bolton, lyrics by g. lindsay

A world of presets, predestination

shackles and handcuffs sold as customization

Thoreau spoke of quiet desperation

Temporary disablement of consciousness

our only means of celebration, drunkenness

desperate measures taken in the form of inaction

thoughts of individual self considered infractions

Abandon any sense of identity

we’re obsessed with false reality

the emperor is nude, why won’t we see?

We don’t believe in our own experience

Unless it’s on TV we’re indifferent

I guess I’ll chalk it up to mass naiveté

we’re watching an assault on creativity

Let’s Get Drunk!

The choice in front of us is painfully clear

abandon our lives or hide in fear

the cost of paranoia is just so dear

There’s no worse way to live then in fear of death

smell every rose you can until your last breath

but never forget that your end will surely come

make that old grim reaper have to catch you on the run

Let’s Get Drunk!

Nothing ever comes to those who patiently wait

if you’re still breathing then it’s not too late

don’t blame your inaction on the hands of fate

The goal of life is not to get to work on time

Don’t trade away your life for nickels and dimes

old death is hiding just around the bend

when you get there share a drink with him

Let’s Get Drunk!
