Sitting here alone And all comes back I see How she waves goodbye Is more than just a memory The sun comes up And says hallo to me Hallo hallo to me I see the core mood She says that's the price to be free To be free, to be free, to be free Everyday I see sides of a still around me Love just for the christmas car looks out of me sadly The sun comes up And says hallo to me Hallo hallo to me I see the core mood She says that's the price to be free To be free, to be free, to be free Downstairs I walk into the light of day Close the door and her she's gone There's nothing more to say The sun comes up And says hallo to me Hallo hallo to me I see the core mood She says that's the price to be free To be free, to be free, to be free Close the door and her she's gone There's nothing more to say

Jove was at home when Mary Mag Saw the world for the very first time And I could have sworn Hermes brought the word To the house that is mine The moon brought her cyan to the home of the lion With lanterns of amber and jade The sun swung below Beaming a glow and the fish swam away With a swoon

Smoked salmon and champagne Know nothing 'bout the prices I don't know what a crisis Bad luck? A stuffy nose? A headache or stress? Take some wip express I'm happily unemployed Jobless but paranoid They might have work for me The doctor says I'm seeing ghosts Lots of leisure time Don't you think it's magic Some people find it tragic All royal families They must feel pretty useless 65 and toothless Not me I'm busy now When I don't sleep I fool around Only in the Congo work is, you might have heard A 1 2 3 four letter word The problem is the Congo is too far away And maybe I won't get my sleep out every day Or money for my big bouvier My Chevrolet I better stay It would be very stupid if I went away I'm happily unemployed Jobless but paranoid They might have work for me The doctor says I'm seeing ghosts Well 2 or 3, but I don't care I'm a flat broke millionaire Thanks to welfare

The cry of Eugene fills the air His spirit can be felt to wander Rends the atmosphere with despair His sense of urgency asks who Harlequin and Columbine speak as three Their spirits can be felt to wander The cry of three plus two times nothing at all Splits all time's mine asunder The cry of Margaret with the golden hair Loves that of Eugene and soothes despair The two in harmony of voice and mind Asks who, why, what were once one of a kind Harlequin and Columbine speak as three Their spirits can be felt to wander The cry of three plus two times nothing at all Splits all time's mine asunder The voice of Eugene cuts through air His gaze commands everyone to wonder The words he speaks dispel all care But Eugene is always there Harlequin and Columbine speak as three Their spirits can be felt to wander The cry of three plus two times nothing at all Splits all time's mine asunder Splits all time's mine asunder Splits all time's mine asunder Splits all time's mine asunder

Carve another notch in my cardboard watch Can't reach my mind and where I'm at is hard to find Funny man say get on this couch and talk away What can I do, oh, what can I say I'm upside down, my world is going round and round It's like a dream where things are not all as they seem What can I do, oh, what can I say Playing games in the park at midnight Trees of yellow and grass of up-white Carve another notch in my cardboard watch Can't reach my mind and where I'm at is hard to find Funny man say get on this couch and talk away What can I do, oh, what can I say Playing games in the park at midnight Trees of yellow and grass of up-white Carve another notch in my cardboard watch Building up a dream from nothing in my mind The struggle is extreme, building up a dream Am I getting old, better take it inside Better come and go and leaving no sign

Let's go away And not come back again Until the poorest of people have money to spend Bring your own lunch Arcade and a mountain I'll have some tangerines Persimmons and lemons Let's go away And not come back again Until the poorest of people have money to spend

She came from New York in the summer We went to the zoo She said that London was lovely We had a good view I called her at four in the morning She came to the phone We met in a park as the dawn came I picked her a rose Some how we found the time To love each others mind Peanut butter's fine She came from New York in the summer We went to the zoo She said that London was lovely We had a good view And now she's gone away I'm waiting for the day When she will be mine I called her at four in the morning She came to the phone We met in a park as the dawn came I picked her a rose

My windowpane is a little cracked One day I'll mend it wipe away my tracks I met a crab today in my backyard I tried to smile but it was too hard I watched that crab from way above From Beirut's mainland to the shores of love Her eyes are reeling wheeling feeling through my mind My name is Stanislas Your face is kind I'm going to take you Take you, take you, take you to my home Of faded purple and ancient gold I could trim the garden if I felt inclined Or I could buy a dog and lead the blind Inside the kitchen or beside the fire It's much the same the flames don't get no higher Her fingers touched me stroked my eyes ran through my hair My name is Stanislas Your face is kind Take me, take me, take me to your home Of faded purple and ancient gold

Flying high above the clouds We lay in the grassy meadow The earth was like a pillow For our dreams Trials never entered into any conversation That was the relation of our dreams As a change in the wind must come Over the mountain And the seasons roll under the sun Passing the shadows of our dreams Flying high above the clouds We lay in the grassy meadow The earth was like a pillow For our dreams Trials never entered into any conversation That was the relation of our dreams As a change in the wind must come Over the mountain And the seasons roll under the sun Passing the shadows of our dreams

about

An impassioned collection of psych covers make up the sister album to Hue Spotting.

These inspired takes on an eclectic mix of non-household names July, Apple, Dr. Strangely Strange, Gruppo Sportivo, The Nice, The End, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Billy Nicholls, Nick Garrie, Fairfield Parlour and Gene Clark, are surely what Dr. Robert ordered!

"Fun stuff here for both the innocent tourist and more serious collectors and psych esthetes from your favourite exes." -Poprock Record
