I Went Over the the Edge of the World

oh the hymns of angels
suffer over the stench of the 21st century
nothing is black or white
or devoid of industry
the face of monotony
the litany of popular culture
i face the microphone and fumble in my pockets for a change
a break from the deranged world of…
plotting out the death of art
and i went over the edge of the world
and felt the sting of all it’s words
i sang the song of elves and  birds
i saw you in my rear view shades
and drank from pools of night time cafes
i stopped over to finish up
i turned the knob and called your bluff
i went over the edge of the world
i face the microphone and fumble in my pockets for a change
a break from the deranged world of…
plotting out the death of art

*Interesting Note*: a line of gibberish follows the twice-used line of “a break from the deranged world of…”, hence the ellipsis. The missing/hidden/encrypted lyrics are NOT detailed in the CD jacket and are actually three words recorded backwards.

Decoded, the missing phrase is “accountants and record executives”. Put it all together, and the accusation is that the deranged world of accountants and record executives are plotting out the death of true art. Quite a bold claim, don’t you think? It seems obvious as to why those few words are encrypted.

care to take a stab at that artist?

what does that monologue say to you?
