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.

I was walking down this lonesome road all by myself

By myself

I was living this lonesome life like anyone else

Anyone else

I was feeling these feelings of pain just like my brothers and sisters did

I been looking for the joys of life like anyone did

Anyone did

Yeah I feel happy well you know it's true

Cause I was lonely but then I found you

 Scratch my shoulder o that hit the spot

Makes no difference 'cause I know what I got

I was looking at my feet as they trudged along

All day long

And the people that I chance to meet to hear my song

Hear my song

I was wondering what makes birds cry what makes them sing

Oh so pretty sounds

Now I'm looking at the joys of life all around all around


I know what I got

Apr 1, 2019

The touch of her hand makes me feel like a man

Everything I can if I could

The warmth of her breath I can attest

Let's get undressed 'cause we should


The taste of her lips goes to my hips

Sunlight dips in her wake

She is my dream you know what I mean

I'm out of steam when I wake


The touch of your hand makes me feel like a man

Everything I can if I could

The warmth of your breath I can attest

Let's get undressed 'cause we should

----------The taste of your lips goesto my hips

Sunlight dips in your wake

You are my dream you know what I mean

Life's spring green when I wake

If I could if I could if I could if I could

Mar 18, 2019

I beat you down and took your wife

But she used me to save your life

I realize she still loves you

So here is what we both shall do

Since she used me to find her man

I still love her you undrstand

I can make you stay or make you run

Your boy and my wife and my loaded shotgun

Yo di lee o di lee o o 

Yo di lee o di lee o di lee o

Here's the thing to see with glee

If you have nerve and skill like me

Your brain is mushy and luck's divine

Here's the game to play one time

So you are weak and I don't care

Just get your punk ass up from there

A heartbeat stin gs a breath is time

Relentlessly hating's abusing the shine

Yo di lee o

My request ain't jest it's for your life

You win I lose and if I win you die

I'll flip this coin mad4 from Satan's tears

And see who walks and who dies here

Either way you three are dead

I make my own luck is how I was bread

 When the tears hit the ground the pin hits the shell

It's the onoy way truly 'fore the  night be fell

Yo di lee o

The coin pierced the moment and shattered the sun

And Troubadour stroked and caressed his shotgun

The crack it then punctured the essence of fear

Johnny Redfoot had shot him confusingly clear

One golden bullet from Johnny's side arm

The lusting of angels who never knew harm

He said "saddle up we're gone with a shove

The only reason for living is love."

Yo di lee o

O di lee o

Mar 11, 2019

I don't know how long that I have been here

I don't know where Charlene's up and gone

Last I know she said that she was pregnant

A month ago last night I could be wrong

I sell myself for opium here nightly

My pride my self control my worth are gone

I always thought I was a stronger person

Now I know that I was always wrong

The moon seeks to touch me from a million miles away

She reaches down and holds me as my senses go away

She cradles me caresses me and pushes me away

Day and night and day and night and day and night and day

Self hatred flows through me like a virus

Send one in so I can earn my pay

This one here she seems a bit familiar

Do what you want to me and go away

Where am I I can't stand the pain please take my life

I'm wracked and vomit stained please kill me you can use my knife

Haze and pain I'm doubled over where the hell am I

I open my eyes see Charlene's face staring into mine

I eat a mango food it seems so strange to me

I'm on an island paradise I think that I can't see

Charlene takes my hand and says we need no longer run

I look into my arms and see I'm holding my new son

Mar 4, 2019

My teeth feel funny and I'm alone

And I am writhing white with foam

Can't restore it averagely

I can't freeze it illogically

I can't take it it takes me

I can't pay it it grates me

I can't place it instantly

I can't take it reverently

It's it's own thing it's in my bones

It's in my mind supine and prone

Squirming wrongly fisting toes

Just ain't swtopping on it goes


I can't remember what it was like

How food tasted and what was right

Either way now It's been too long

Feeling slack now but not for long


Feb 27, 2019

Feb 25, 2019

Consequence smolders and trembles

She fills my lungs

Disappears when I lose reality

Maybe choke on my tongue

Let's rock let's roll

It feels so good to give in

Reason is a tumor

Live for now

Because tomorrow is a rumor

Let's rock let's roll

Dyin' can't be too bad

'Cause life is sweet sweet death

Cry havoc and surrender

With a halting breath

Let's rock let's roll

50  He's got a great sense of humor.

55  I got to go on other people's computers and start putting in "society fringe" and see what pops up.

Feb 18, 2019

The scene is the Chinese island of Chin Pau. Billy's defeated, Johnny's disappeared, and Troubadour has kidnapped Charlene. We slow fade to an unreadable Comanche warrior lounging in an opium den in the far east, discarded, disavowed, relinquished, abandoned...trapped.

Jan 28, 2019

I came to and saw her staring down at me

At my bloody body where was I to be

She was Shanghai Susan as introduced to me

I never felt so low as I did when remembering

When I last saw Charlene she had gone with Troubadour

I guess I left my manhood scattered 'cross the floor

As I get my bearings I turn back to the door

And leave that world behind because I'm sucked dry to my core


Shanghai Susan is introducing me

To a world where hope is less than just a dead man's memory

My choice will be nothing and nothing's what I'll be

In the great abyss with a dead man's hope I'm free

Troubadour and Charlene I think they've disappeared

Into something when I;m nothing as my path it now shines clear

Opium she soothes me like an ancient lover's scent

Shanghai Susan embraces me I know my soul is spent

Jan 21, 2019

My brain isn't working my body is broken

I'm in the abyss I'm a sacrifice

She's his like a liar controlled by her greed

And the sun is another one cursing my life


It's over it's over it's all fucking over

I'm nothing clear back to a different man's ghost

Use vengeance as anger and life as a weapon

Cancerous here leading my self doubt to grow

He is the cancer she is the cancer

And he is the cancer but I I am not

The water keeps rising the sirens are wailing

I'm sweeping up cities and making them rot

I surrender


Who's the disease spreading and razing

Chewing up tissues and spitting out ghosts?

My brain's in retreat my body is bleeding

I'm giving up everything neither or both

My blood it tastes funny upon my tongue

It's laughing and darting and staring the sky

I surrender already I don't have the passion

I don't feel the need to even ask why

I surrender


Everyone's blameless and gone is the passion

I don't have the strength or the caring to cry

I don't care about the ending or even the middle

Once upon a time a man simply died

I don't want no punishment taught as a lesson

I don't need to learn any new god damn things

I'm turning my mind off I'm turning my heart off

I'm going to sleep 'cause I've nothing to bring

My brain isn't working my body is broken

I'm in the abyss I'm the sacrifice

The war and the battle teamed up and beat me

Humiliated and timid with life

Leave me be

Let me lie

Lie on back

Bathe my pain

I'm headed down

That lonesome spiral

Ain't never gonna see me

Ever again

I have peaked

I am meek

I am weak

I can't sleep

I surrender I pretend or

I'm the problem

From the rostrum

Now I'm gone

Like this song

'Cause I'm wrong

Jan 14, 2019

I've puked more whiskey than you'll ever drink

I've forgotten more shit than you'll ever think

I kick more ass than Chingiss Khan

I'm an egomaniac running rampant on the man

Kiss my cynical ass you clueless motherfucker

I'll make sure I'm fucking your wife and your mother

Here's my fingers and here's my fist

Lay low the arrangement if you get my gist

The cream rises to the top I'm a dreg in the bottom

I met Abe Lincoln and I motherfucking shot him

It doesn't make a difference what anybody thinks

So what so where so how you blinked

Got fire in my eyes and blood on my face

Drop the green flag, bitch, so let's start this race

Hubba hubba hubba here comes trouble

Cut me some slack now don't bust my bubble

I come halfway around the world to fight

So let's get this party started right


Once upon a time there was a punk ass Indian

He fucking pissed me off because he took all of my winnings

In an Alabama bar abutting Louisiana

So I followed that boy straight up through Texarkana

And some G-man chump out of New York City

My mission is seek revenge on pity

I say hubba hubba hubba here comes trouble

I'll reduce this town to smoldering rubble

Billy Redfoot, hell, he won my hyde

He got more than money, boys, he stole my pride

So I'm on his ass like a meth head on blow

Shit I followed them all down to West Mexico

Hell I even heard tell that he's headed to China

I'm on the pacific you know I will find a

Way to wreak revenge on theonly man ever

Laid claim to my crown as the best gambler ever


I Lived in the shadows while I plotted my revenge

Every scenario of torture and pain

Pliers and razors and electric cables

Chains and hooks and bloody horse stables

Break every metatarsal with sadistic glee

Fill his lungs with gasoline and then light the sneeze

Dig my thumbs in his eyes 'til they're wet with goo

Sharp razors laced through his stupid shoes

Sulfuric acid to scar them legs

Then make him crawl and make him beg

The worst part's I might hurt my knuckles

The best part's I will watch him buckle

Hey there, boy, here I stand let me proclaim

I am here to remove from you all but your name

For the beating I serve up shall be more than blood

That spills from you like breath from a newborn and 'cause

You have ruined my life I shall extract your soul

From your life force and then I will highly extol

My instance as the man and then you as the bitch

So just give me the pliers so I can scratch this itch


That bating that I threw down it almost took his life

It felt so good to see him cry right in front of his wife

So I admit it I just took her through a bag atop her head

Tossed that boy out like the trash top of the world, yo, I'm kicking ass

We got up to my yacht and then I said said she could go free

She said her husband's not a man why the only man here on Chin Pau's me

I got all of the money and I got that piece of ass

Fuck all day drink all night hey shit, y'all, let the good times blast

It's like I took my inner good and set that bitch on fire

I'm still a young man, as it goes, but hell it's all time to retire

I'll sleep on piles of money and I'll never be alone

It's amazing on the China Sea well shit, man, I'm finally home

Hey, baby, Daddy's home
