SocietyFringePodcast's podcast

Through this podcast SFP is creating an extended universe through the use of guitar based pop songs. The tale is both episodic and serial. As of the COVID lock down the SFPeeniverse consisted of 7 Broadway style musicals. This is ambitious stuff. The conceit is that an '84 Chevy El Camino acts as a TARDIS catalyst connecting the characters to unlimited story telling opportunities.

Well I had a dream last night

All around me the party was raging

Elvis was our God

The sky was a dull shade of pagan

We sacrificed our lives

Dawn she showed the way in

So I had a dream last night

Ain't phony I ain't faking

A dull shade of pagan

The party was raging

Folks were engaging

The dull shade of pagan

So I figured I could spread the word

In a way that won't pay taxes


As long as the song relaxes

It's a new mythology

Pilfered from the old ones

Sold as if it's new

Gospel of the bold ones


So I got it up andrunning

In a tent by The Rotting Sea

Spread the word of Elvis

All for a nominal feeRob them suckers blind

Preaching like a magma

Cause that break to bind

Not really going to scam you

Sleeping in a stranger's car I jerk when it starts to sway

I said "I'm just in from Jerusalem I'm just in from the sun"

A six string in a gunny sack I'm looking to have some fun

I been high every single night

Won't you come back home with me

And won't you try to be with me tonight

Won't you come back home with me

So I strolled up to the bar I said "I'll play if I can drink for free"

The bartender started to laugh hell the whole place was staring at me

So I pulled out my black Les Paul I said "You better give me some room."

I put my fingers down on the strings and I proceeded to sonic boom

When I was done the bartender smiled he said "We knew you'd come our way

We heard lots of stories 'round here stuff we're afraid to say."

I said that I was just doing my job trying to make my guitar bleed

I got my sack and I walked on out and I recited the Apostle's Creed

Nov 27, 2017


I'm a paranoid sucker 'cause I know they're out to get me

And my fists with a wish for a laid back twist

And surviving turned to thriving turned to starving turned to what

In an icon fractured clog bogged down when it's found

All around a different town or city dwelling yelling nothing

At an existential fog or bog or something else entirely

Or a laser or a frog toed sloppy domed slow burn

Other sucker looser with a punch a bunch of these here

Unrehearsed gems floating down again but then again

A friend has other needs feed iambic tantric greed

Got a surfing webbed foot soot choked smoke it up

Smoke it up suck it down don't cough cough cough

Been a jealous zealous fool guy why fry wide eyed

Sky up below or throw the other one again or then

Did I say she was a friend when or then is when again

How's now let it go or else it bows so here we go


Man she leans and she dips and she drinks and she strips

And she swerves and she curves and she knows and she glows

But she hears and she nears and she queers and she lears

When she lunges and she plunges and she hinges and she plummets

As she cries and she lies and she flies and she sighs

If she knows and she grows and she slows and she flows

If she was or she must or she's just or she's rust

When she flips and she dips and she rips and she sips

As she kisses and she misses and she hisses and she disses

Then she fucks and she sucks and she trucks and she mucks

For she screams and she dreams and she beams and she reams

And she straps and she naps and she raps and she straps

'Cause she fights and sh's right and she's might and she's night

And she's day and she's here and she's far and she's near


When the paranoia took me like a volcano it shook me

The tsunami was a birthrite and the actress got the words right

If it ever didn't happen then I thought it maybe might

If there ever was a doubt it wasn't right

My soliloquy is broken like a wrestling gimmick

My cantankerous mind failed to lure or to mimic

Felt betrayed when she stayed and bereft when she left

Felt a cringe become a frown and I put that sucker down

If there ever was a modern one it never came to me

If there ever was another one to see

Back it up now you're good cut it hard tap the brake

Slake the thirst you're the worst kiss the night

Float above the fray

Let it go.

Nov 20, 2017


Here's a story truth be told

Of woebegone fortuneless bold

And shattered minds on ecstasy

Caressing and so endlessly

And through the meanings of the pines

As underground as concubines

A harem made of robot parts

Conveyed through trays of structure hearts

Grappled over and then some

Sucking on my fucking thumb

Pleased the barker lies be sought

Fissured lives of astronauts

And then she said "You're all dismissed."

With kisses made from mountain mist

She's Dawn she fucking floats in the sky

She's Dawn she's always higher than high

She's Dawn recycled from a myth

She's Dawn a modern sarcophogus

As I knelt I felt her scent

Fucked her in her covenant

Would she bless me with a kiss

Or a fateful unnamed bliss

Sanctioned by a godless ton

As it was it's kind of fun

What again was then it ain't

Can't remember no complaints

Did the anniversary

Give a gift of common glee

Punctured wounds that bled of silk

Fractured by the mother's milk

Stranded on a nearby shore

Booked tonight forever more

Nov 13, 2017


Midlife crisis in prescription pills but the buffer never came

Fallen swords flown free form faster but they all just sound the same

It's only just a game

Got no witness call our misdeeds

Over by the dawn

Catch a glimpse of something better

Blink and then it's gone

Let the meaning of the words

Get scrambled by the dregs

Give a sense of meaningless

An arm and two new legs

It's only just a game.

I went before the tribune and I stammered my defense

Got a playful greeting said the sentence recompense

Kiss me twice but fool me never where'd she put the key

Get them handcuffs melt 'em down and then 

Just give them back to me

It's only just a game

It's more than just a game

Seen you in your glory will you sell me

For a story

You got a b-line to my soul

Gift me with your loving or

Thrift me from above when

I got another spot in my soul

Welcome to my birthday party but it hasn't started

Until you're gone

Violence the pot is brimming

We're all just swimming in it'ssong

And if you're knowing who I am

I wonder because I can feel you

But not see through you if I can

My questions ain't small

War it kills us all

I just want to know what's right that's all

That's all


People they fill me with questions

The world is spinning under me

Catch it a thought is drifting

I'm sitting sifting come float with me

Listen to me and join my party

Oct 23, 2017


Well I feel alright maybe a bit uptight

 I'm on a transport boat it's like a new remote

Got a floating thumb like a number one

Half another one loaded half my gun

On a factory ship they stole a rather zip

Get me out of there where the air to care

Less of everything bring the sing ring thing

At the quarter mark played without the stark

Leave the war behind in effort sublime

Of a human skull filled with less than null

Here the yells and coughs

Feeding at the trough

Like an eagle's wings sing the ring thing bring

It to newfound lathes baths and crass crash labs

Feed me nitrogen pennies current slim

From a battle zone smelling like ozone

Peace will set me free if I want to be


Sing the joys of life na na na na na na

Uplift me uplift me tra la la

Does anything really ever happen

How 'bout them migrants at the door

You got the money for the answer

You got the money for the floor


When I looked around was Atlantis bound

Got PTSD got that shit for free

It's a genesis it's a catharsis

It's a love ornate let's copulate

I got a song for you

It's heaving like a clue

I got to radiate

And build my love from hate


I broke the atom bomb KABOOM

I felt it I felt it give me room

I heard the drums a-beating goddamn

I heard the march retreating, man


Like the towers fall Dawn City enthralled

It's an edifice it's an urban myth

She's the Atom Bomb she's the right aplomb

Boil and salt to taste then repatriate


I got a song for you

It's heaving like a clue

I got to radiate

And build my love from hate

Within the City's gates

I don't ingratiate

Or have a trust in fate

You some punk motherfuckers while you're sitting in your high chairs

In your seats that be controlling the world

You don't care about the people build your liquor stores and steeples

Hold the roughest of the roughest of the pearls

The people act as lemmings all distracted and the same is true

For all this fucking lying crying blues

Distract us from our misery lie to us to keep us busy

While you tell us what our thoughts are and our views

Manipulated prayed for fellated

The dream is a lie and I'm craving a meltdown

Lead like a herd mindless retro absurd

And the scheme is a pyramid oligarchs abound

The rich elite lie to you and they motherfucking use you

If you're left well then they make you hate the right

And the other way too, punks, it's fucking junk they use the trunks

And pack their lies up so they seem like truth and light

They keep us all distracted while their riches get impacted

By the oligarchal lurching huge machine

They twist up information hide the overall stagnation

And they make you wonder what it all can mean
