Skeleton Dreams – Harvey Dog (2015)

Laughter
is the answer

what answer
dancing skeleton,
for what question?

if the question
has been answered,
then there
is no need for questions

evasive skeleton,
why do you dance
to the tune
of avoiding
the truth?

truth is merely
a dream
that one remembers,
but wisdom
is in the dreams
that we forget…

am i dream then
skeleton?

it’s your conception
it’s your creation,
don’t make it your affliction
don’t make it your damnation

evasive skeleton
that is no answer,
that is a warning!

laugh dance and play
forget your dreams
it’s only the truth (2X)

laugh, dance and play…
rethgual si eht rewsna.


Notes

  • An early Harvey Dog effort from 2015. I started my recording efforts in 2012 & 2014, but 2015 is the year I finally figured out the potential that technology afforded me, and I’ve been recording “songs” as Harvey Dog ever since.
  • This piece and my cover of Kevin Coyne’s “House on the Hill” are the 2 pieces from that initial year of 2015, that I feel still sound ok to my ears. Hope they sound ok to your ears as well.
