MIND GAMES
(written 2012/recorded 2013)



what if youíd chosen not that friend
what if that friendship did not end
what if the others won the war
what if a gunman lived next door

what if iíd become a porn star
what if iíd learned to play guitar
what if iíd been born filthy rich
what if i did not have that itch

what if the mars was not that far
what if i had not crashed my car
what if the day we both had met
what if i had been less upset

what if the winter was midyear
what if a man could not feel fear
what if beasts were uneatable
what if romans were beatable

weíll never know what would have been
itís hypothetical
clairvoyance is a pipe dreamís child
and hypocritical

though everyone likes to invoke
that full blown second guessing
thereís no parallel universe
that proves we are transgressing

what if in 734
nothhelm was consecrated in
lieu of 735
what if he then had lived in sin

what if the taxes were too low
what if they had been risen by
who lost the last election though
he was forecast to win sky-high

what if we lived in tyranny
what if election periods
were just a month, a century
what if all hawks were idiots

what if in 1963
the target had been missed somehow
what if the pope had converted
to buddha or the sacred cow

weíll never know what would have been
itís hypothetical
clairvoyance is a pipe dreamís child
and hypocritical

though everyone likes to invoke
that full blown second guessing
thereís no parallel universe
that proves we are transgressing

what if we were pawns in a game
what if we were somebodyís taws
what if these two were just the same
what if we were rejected flaws

what if we all were shadows of
the fires of some drunken ghosts
who at our flippancy would scoff
while in the flame the ghost duck roasts

what if we were not here at all
but just a fog of big conceit
anomaly of time and space
that carry on to float and fleet

what if i did not write this song
but watched some tv tootling and
what if you played this all along
but unplugged earbuds worth a grand
