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.

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

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

The gravestone gave the name

The gravestone gave the date

The gravestone don't talk back

The gravestone's what I hate

Hello, Dad, I miss you though I never knew you

And I wonder was it because of me

And I never got the chance to say "I love you"

Father, listen to me

I took a look and I found out

That that ain't the way it goes

Hello, Dad, I miss you

The house is old and gray

The house don't give no dates

The house is full of fear

The house is what I hate

Hello, Mom, I love you though I never told you

When I was younger you took care of me

But now I'm growing older growing smaller

Momma, listen to me

I took a look and I found out

That that ain't the way to go

Hello, Mom, I love you

Christmas means togetherness and love and joy

Happiness and presents for the girls and boys

Old folks come together and then reminisce

Stand beneath that mistletoe and get a kiss

Love your friends and kin

When Christmas comes again

Shout out to the homeless in America

The starving out in Asia and in Africa

Embrace all of the faiths that would love to kill me

The majority of folk through time just weren't free

So go remember them

When Christmas comes again

Make sure that you bring your love at Christmastime

People come and go but love is all the time

People they pass on but their love still exists

So let that love inside your heart and reminisce

Love brings love, my friend

When Christmas comes again.

Dec 17, 2018

In ancient times a giant eagle sputtered freely sea to sea

His claws could rip a mountain clean his eyes shot fire when the air was free

His wingspan birthed ten hurricanes he sculpted much of this here land

His greatest triumph was a birth a man I just call "Abraham"


Abraham he sired a nation and "freedom" was their guiding word

Their skin was red their feathers worn in honor of the ancestral bird

Then caucasoids they floated west, set forth, destroyed the Eagle's land

They threw litter on the side of the road a tear did stain old Abraham's cheek


Then one day on the reservation the Army tapped old Abraham

His two sons sucking mother's milk they sent him off to Vietnam

Friendly fire it took his life there was nothing left to see

Except five toes and an ankle, man, hence the name of "redfoot" came to be


Momma Redfoot died of grief Redfoot boys played hoops and all

Drank their whiskey, drank it neat, two young men with a basketball

Then one Redfoot brother took the other's girl drove to New York and left her there

The other brother joined the FBI but they didn't make him cut his hair

Now you know it you seen it all a story old as euro myths

In the spirit world Abraham sighs he says "D'IH!"

Spending time with a rented soul

My body tells me which way to flow

Billy's trail seems to lead to Seoul

Or maybe China, baby, I don't know

That Indian chump and his stripper gash

So with the government I'm in cahoots

Johnny Redfoot is my given name

I watched my brother board that Hong Kong Plane

He'll come looking before long

It's after sunset get along

It ain't worth it give it up

Locked and loaded saddle up

She 0
Oct 22, 2018



She had never seen America before, pure America, full of hatred, racism, religious intolerance, endless strip malls, and opportunity.


She never learned much at school, maybe how to blow marijuana smoke into a roll of toilet paper in the girl's bathroom. What she did learn had nothing to do with books, teachers, standing in line, none of that shit. What she learned was "always be on guard. If you see an opening do it to them before they do it to you. And when all else fails? Run."


When she was a little girl she thought of love as a mystery. When she got a little older she viewed it as a cruel liar. Now it's her life. Sex is sex. Druga are drugs. Eating ain't cheating. And hugs are shrugs. She says "I'm going to ride this palomino 'til I get to the promised land, 'til Jesus as the devil himself opens up her arms to me and says..."


"You're finally home."

West Mexico just feels so empty to me

Beautiful people sunning themselves

We've smoked up everything in town

We look like walking trash

Makes me and Charlene laugh

I want to fuck her in the sand

I want to fuck her in the sand

I want to fuck her in the sand

We're getting out of here, man

We're off to Asia


West Mexico feels a bit sadder to me

Like a barroom brawl in a library

Like a fish stuck up in a tree

Like somebody else's memories

Flashing straight through me

West Mexico seems so selfish to me

It's the edge of life to dreams

It's the edge of life to dreams

It's the edge of life to dreams

It's the edge of life in my dreams

And I see the lions on the shore

Like Poppa and the Old Man had done before

And I wonder "are they starting to roar

Or are they just starting to snore?"

Release me release me release me release me 


West Mexico I'm too tired to see

What's surrounding me

What's surrounding me

What's surrounding me

What's surrounding me?

Release me release me release me release me
