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.

The last time we saw Remote Control

She was ashes and Dawn had took her soul

Then again maybe then it wasn't so

Or maybe then it was oh no

Now she's tailing our hero Baby Blue

She knows that the lies have turned to truth

But she never asked for any proof

She really didn't care she still don't

Remote Control has found her soul

Hit that pipe again

She's been ready now she's steady 

It's a laughing zen

Well she knows how to live her life as art

And romantically construct a part

Of a universal broken heart

That's weeping tears of laughter and angst

It's a muffled laughter when it's time

It's a victim of a worthless crime

It's a notion sprouting off the vine

That's rooted in mischief and pranks

chorus

As she surveys all that's come to pass

She knows her time has come at last

To binge and partake of repast

And try and change the world oh my

If she's magic then so are me and you

Like she says "bring the meaning of the truth"

It never needs to show a proof

In algebraic terms or why

chorus

WESTWARD

In the bed next to me the man looks just like me

He said "My name is Angel White, boy, what is yours?"

"I'm Baby Blue" I said to him he squinted back at me again

And then he stood up walked away and closed the door

I'm standing in a mirrored hall I punch and kick at every wall

I fall my knuckles bloodied dripping to the ground

I look up and see Angel White just disappear into the night

There is a term for this if not then just a sound

When I'm standing tall I can't help but fall

When I'm on my knees I feel truly free

When I see Remote Control she would just offer me a bowl

And then she mesmerized explicitly at Dawn

As she came tome again she fluctuated slightly then

She misquoted all of the words I heard before

She populated like a breeze that had a different chain link sleeve

Of retributions paid and other ones that lost

As she split the sun in half She moved against the righteous path

And climbed down from the perch that never paid the cost

As I stood to see that it wasn't me

In that playful past of iconoclasts

The old man shuffled past me there his flask was metal facial hair

He had a jumpsuit on of rhinestones shining white

Never gave me wisdom once I didn't ask for other ones

But then I saw it as a lecture from respite

Did he really give a shit I didn't think he was legit

But then the world's a work and we're all fucking marks

The greatest con became the truth Falsified by the unclaimed youth

Of everyone it fades away into a spark

I'm so goddamned tired I'm so goddamn mired

Will it ever end probably not, my friend

When a man ain't got no home there's one thing left he's born to roam

But then again to run away's too aching sad

As a pilgrim from the rest who like to propagate the best

Of worst things everywhere there's money to be had

So I disappeared to see if when a people can't be free

That you can drown your sorrows just from passing through

Guess we'll never really know but it's sure fun to try to though

And if you don't agree I ain't got time for you

All my bullets gone shot through by this song

Westward let us roam make the road our home

HOSPITAL BED

Hospital bed I thought I was dead

I'm living instead I rose from the dead

So let us break bread blue suede shoes now red

In my hospital bed

I question my life I question my time

I question existence I question this rhyme

I question the sun I question the son

In my hospital bed

Scripture number one be a hound dog son

Scripture number two sing and don't be cruel

Hospital bed the scriptures I've read

He rose from the dead and Elvis ain't dead

It's all in my head all in my head

In my hospital bed

The legions they come they rise with the sun

The army's begun a million and one

It's not in my head not in my head

In my hospital bed

Scripture number three love me tenderly

Scripture number 4 close my fucking door

Damn pleased to meet me the pleasure is all yours

Ain't you glad to see me here I open spiritual doors

Nothing's prohibited

Do what you feel

Nothing's your fault

Illusion is real

Fund the triumvirate of Chingiss and Caesar and me

Give me retrofitted scriptures so they can make sense

Charge a fee from me to thee subsequent recompense

Shake your ass and clap your hands interenactually

Dig deep now, you fucking marks, and give it unto me

(chorus)

Let us breed and multiply and fill this fucking earth

Let us gain control so we can say who can be birthed

Let us say what's wrong and right and kill those who oppose

Let us make up words like "good" and "evil" just like those

Hey, groupie, with your cheap tattoos

Come cure this poor boy blues

It all comes naturally

So let yourself be free

We're all just lost to be

Tonight

Hey, groupie, writhing through the day

Conform with all we say

Give freedom to the beast

Let fractious souls unleash

A feeding without feast

Tonight

Hey, groupie, did you ever know

A question answered no?

A falcon flew at dusk

It smelled of seat and musk

It sang a song and busked

Tonight

Hey, groupie, what's this game?

Hey, groupie, what's this pain?

Teach it to the lost

Populated frost

Gone like other's moss

Tonight

We were travelling last night when

We pulled up to shining lights and

We talked about mysticism

We left early as is our whim

-----

We set sail the morning after

Had them hanging from the rafters\

Honestly there's something to this

Even though no one can prove this

We roll town to burg

Shouting Elvis' name and spreading his good word

We see all to those believe

Crash town like a wave then roll up stakes and leave

Truth be told the crowds they scare me

What if once they tried to dare me

I would say "It's faith just trust me."

Ain't no way these fools will bust me

chorus

Dave - guitars, banjo, vocals

Brian - bass, engineering, mixing

Wil - drums

Elvis is the savior and Elvis is the king

Elvis stopped the war and made us all break out and sing

Elvis made me see the light

Made me never want to fight

I am Elvis I am god

Elvis has risen

People, have you heard the news

It[s better than you could have dreamed

Elvis has come back to us and left the movie screen

Give him praise and me your funds

Elvis Presley's number one

I am Elvis I am god

Join the flock and suck my rod

Elvis has risen

Let me have the congregation jumping to its feet

Let me have 'em getting naked dancing in the streets

Elvis has me seen the light

Made us never want to fight

Dec 18, 2017

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

Religiousity

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

chorus

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

Brian - bass, engineering, mixing

WON'T YOU COME BACK HOME

The sun really ain't too bright but I got to squint to see anyway

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

PARANOID

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.
