about

Oranga Tanga West Melbourne, Florida

Strange stirrings are reported from the jungle. A breeze swirls the atmosphere like a nun stirs her morning coffee. The smell of drums is heavy in the air, like a remembered punch. The natives, never ones to contemplate these things, are restless and getting restlesser. There is no unrestlesting the restlesserification of… this is where the doctor said I should stop writing. ... more

Track Name: Fanga alafia
(J. Campbell, traditional)

Fanga Alafia Ashe Ashe
Ikabo Alafia Ashe Ashe

Welcome to our world today
Good health to you always
Peace is my intention
and motivates what I say

Look into my eyes again
I want to make sure you are a friend
Trust should be expected
With innocence as a trend

No tricks up our sleeves
No war, no disease
We only come in peace

“Fanga” is a mystery
It could mean anything
“Alafia” translates as welcome
Good health to you and peace
“Ashe” is authority
Vital life-force energy
The word for inner power
That exists in everything

“Ikabo” I don’t know
Forgiveness some say so
David wants to sing about burritos!!!
Track Name: Cheeseburger cheeseburger
(J. Campbell)

Cheeseburger cheeseburger
washed down with corn syrup
Made up for the masses
In factories of doom

E. coli in Cookies
and beefy beef patties
Salmonella in dairy
and peanutty treats

Illegal fence jumpers
are doing the dirty
work of the committee
and the chairman is pleased

They are illegal
and they’ll go to jail
So they keep their mouths shut
to keep family

One for the money
and two for the power
and three for the party
it’s going to be fun
The plates are all filled
for the men of the hour
So raise up your glasses in awe
Three cheers for the leaders
who allow this to happen
Monsanto employees in charge
The plates are all filled
for the men of the hour
So raise up your glasses in awe

Send the beef to boarding school
where they wade in fecal matter
gorging on a ton of corn
till the meat marbles

Party on the killing floor
everyone is wanting more
eviscerating bovines
smashing in their skulls

Send the beef to finishing school
E. coli goes everywhere
Where they wade for weeks in poo
E. coli goes everywhere
When they tear their intestines
E. coli goes everywhere
When you chew the uncooked food
E. coli goes ev-ery-where
Track Name: Spacebar (UKO)
(His Cheap Moves, J. Campbell)

Chalmun’s Cantina
A wretched hive of villany and scum
reminds me of Sidi Driss in Matmata, South Tunisia

Ponda Baba Leave me alone!
I came for the Modal Nodes

Mos Eisley just ain’t for me
This space bar has to go

Don’t hassle me anymore
Down at the UKO

My friend does not like you
I don’t like you either

Figrin D’an plays lead
Fiending out on glitterstim spice
It’s harvest time and Han is back from
Millennium Kessel Run

Glitterstim has finally seen the light
Figrin D’an – That Kloo horn is hot!

Ponda Baba, I will slit your throat!
Track Name: mycelium
(J. Campbell, b. tilford)

i rock for the zeolite stilbite, i’m post volcanic like rhyolite
i rock igneous sedimentary all the way from olivene to serpentine
i rock for the wind and the water, turning into pebbles at the bottom
i rock for the plains and the mountains; the forces of erosion!

i’m a roller for the skates and coasters, rollin up, away, back, on, in, and over
i roll for the tootsies and the -ing stones
don’t forget the dinner rolls
risin in 160 species 25 billion cells in a gram of yeasties
saccaromyces cerevisiae, mycillium

wall to wall, square, circle or oblong
we used to wear em glad that didn’t last long
fashionable functionality, traditional, contemporary
could be made of wool, silk or cotton just to walk all over it often
puttin quality in the density
let’s cut a rug

defining the division of the species, all the way with the X or the Y we’re
reproducing or attempting not to be with intense velocity
taking it home with the chromosones
introducing DNA to the moans and groans
about to explode!
Track Name: Ceviche
(db, J. Campbell)

Flowing wind
on salty bay
water is warm today

Upon lime trees
our clothes do hang
While we wash our cuts away

The Island smolders close to the impact
of our former plane

La la la la la*

Coconuts feed our face
found a fishing net today

Quenching thirst
sweet water rain
Found our suitcase

At sunset I found the matches
we made a fire place

Fishing net
Ocean breaks
sip the coconut awake
Picking limes at midday
Catching fish to soak away
Clean fillets and marinate till
Galactic stars shine through

Ceviche for you!

It rains every day
but the fires are easy to make
Fish come by the net full
In no hurry to pass this away
An accidental paradise
we never signal planes
Track Name: spec
(b. tilford)

i feel like a spec like a drop of water
floating in a stream down on a river
rollin to the sea up thru the clouds
right off the earth and on my way out

to be a universe together, span the distance
stick together, make the rhythm

since it’s always in the timing
a sense of time is always
in motion cleverly winding up away

i feel just like a spec…
is it just a matter of time and space
keeps us all in this place
walking thru a human race always

i feel like a spec like a drop of water
floating in the stream down on a river
rollin to the sea up and thru the clouds
right off the earth and on my way out

now i feel like a spec like a universe
floating in the heavens on the outskirts
of infinity knowing all the while
that it started just a spark on the map of my mind

sparks together
span the distance
sparks together
make the rhythm
Track Name: Hippopotomous amphibius
(J. Campbell)

The hippopotamus is semi-aquatic
living in the rivers and lakes
Aggressive creatures that kill lots of people
They can bite you right in two

Hippos look like pigs and other ungulates
Even though they’re cetaceans
Kenyapotamus the fossil example
16 million years ago today

The hippopotamus once lived in the forest and plains
He grew fatter and fatter and fatter because he ate all day

I want to live in the river! Please oh Lord. It’s Way too hot
I want to live with the fishes. Please oh Lord. The sun won’t stop!

The Lord N’gai told the hippo that he did love the fish
and that a hippo in the water would treat each one as a dish

You must change your eating habits I will protect the fish
And they are very dear to me, oh no, I cannot grant your wish

The hippopotamus thought about the wishes of the Lord
And how happy he would be if he were hot no more

Lord I won’t eat even one and I will prove this
I will spread my dung on the banks and show no bones from fish
Track Name: Pesto
(J. Campbell)

Living upon the notion that the every day’s a flim-flam
To the man who believes in due hate unto his fellow man
He could’ve been happy, but he chose to be not
Now he’s giving, giving what he hasn’t got

Walking on his path he doesn’t seem to be misled
He thinks his inward thoughts are out of place within his judging head
Stepping to the motion of self manifesting evil beats
He only speaks of God when his ego needs boosting

He takes his checkbook and writes unto the charity
Man doesn’t that feel great!
But peace starts right here, man and there’s no time to waste
The man’s a megalomaniac and he’s going down.

Sitting on his throne empty promises run wild
From his lips he sinks ships calling all but him a little child
“Go buy the book!”, with an order and a frown
While children do his work tending basil in the ground

Hungry people? Yeah, and ten are throwing seed
And one by one by one they are disappearing
At night we lick our wounds and pray for a meal
as Madam Wong soothes Evil Man’s primal feelings

Time passes, or so the story goes, and mutiny gets planted in the ground
Harvest time comes quickly, and we all share pesto
Evil Man and Madam Wong come out from the castle to shake their fingers
Saying there’s no cash at all,
and there’s no peace of mind at all to take home. No No.
You are hungry (please bring food) and all alone
“Won’t you praise me?”, cried the Evil Man
And in awe of the beast, was poor Madam Wong

Everybody tired of the motions of the Evil Man
and the lass who followed who couldn’t take her own hand
Courage uplifted! and puffed our chests out.
as Evil Man cried we all had given up!

Global peace? No, but just in you
promising something when your promise was untrue
Working all that time, I look at what I got
No food in my freezer, but for you a bag of rot!

Madam Wong, you should run back home!
Track Name: Cockroach spray
(J. Campbell)

Do what you’ve always done
And you’ll get what you’ve always gotten
It’s such a shame to live in this world
When you can’t see your problem

Visualize a happier you
Realize that it could be true
Formalize this process and you’re alive

But you won’t do it
You’re far too lazy
Comfortable? You must be crazy
Lies don’t work you always know truth
And in the end hides the proof

Die! That’s all in your head
Don’t buy your gravestone before you’re dead
You love to take from many just for one
And I can tell that because you’re human

Visualize a happier you
Realize that it could be true
Formalize this process and you’re alive

But you won’t do it
You’re far too lazy
Comfortable? You must be crazy
Lies don’t work you always know truth
And in the end hides the proof
Track Name: it will come back
(b. tilford)

we sit starin, not even carin if we find, there’s nothin to do
later on if we still can’t find it, then babe, we’ll do that too

we make some love and set it free, it will come back to me
it will come back to you, just what we thought it would do

we don’t count the days, we see forever in each one as they go by
you’ re the rainbow of spices in the seasons of my life

all the money’s gone, too bad that love won’t pay the rent, they both come so fast
all we have is each other and all we want is what we have

we make some love and set it free, it will come back to me
it will come back to you, just what we thought it would do
just what we thought it would do, it will come back to you
