For Chipper


  What We Gonna Do Without Him? by WM.BATES

WILLIAM BATES: GUITARS.KEYBOARDS.VOCALS. 
MARK PAYNE: BASS 
JOE JOGODKA: DRUMS

He's playing out his days
What we gonna do without him?
He's hanging 'em up, that's what he says
What we gonna do without him?

He's a dying breed, he stands alone
He's rounding third, he's heading home

They'll put his number on the wall
What we gonna do without him?
He'll be heading for the hall
What we gonna do without him?


He's a dying breed, he stands alone
He's rounding third, he's heading home

When the chips are down, he'll pull us through
What we gonna do without him?
See him in your memory, 'cause time is oh so cruel
What we gonna do without him?

He's a dying breed, he stands alone
See him rounding third, he's heading home

What We Gonna Do Without Him?

The Jester's Gesture: The Inception

THE POOL OF MEDB IN AN OAK TREE GLEN (EXPERIMENTAL MIX)


there's a treasured place
beyond yonder hill
in an oak tree glen
where time runs still

and a fire feigns light
warm with dark delight
incantations are read
...a communion with the dead

   pull back the string
   on your english longbow
   see the arrow sing
   whistle past all you know

legends linger long
an oral tapestry
and the weak shall be strong
and the blind shall see

feel the pull of fate
straight to the river's gate
love's current is awake
hurry now, don't you be late

   pull back the string
   on your english longbow
   see the arrow sing
   whistle past all you know

perhaps at runneymeade
perhaps in normandy
perhaps at land's end
perhaps in the hearts of men

it's the red moon night
it's the scar upon this land
it's the promise of the right
it's where you finally understand

   pull back the string
   on your english longbow
   see the arrow sing
   whistle past all you know
