about

The Bottom Line is Money. I need you to pay for this music so I can accumulate more money. The more money I have the more elaborate recordings I can make for those who enjoy what I do already. It's simple. All I'm asking for is basically one day's allowance of your lunch money. The return will be another amusing recording you can keep playing in the background while you do your taxes. Honest. I won't let you down. Ask songwriter Marci Geller. She'll tell ya. She's even singing lead on one of the songs on this here CD, check out "Same Now More Or Less". If you like montages/ musical collages this is the CD for you. And it sounds great in headphones or in the Jones Beach under pass.

This Collection is dedicated to some of the fine folks at WUSB 90.1fm: Bill Armutis, Rosanne Hoffmann, Kenyon, Brian Katz, Rob Rothenberg, Dave Kline, Jim Dexter, Bradley Arrington, Mary Anne Devine, and Norm Prusslin.

They can afford to buy a diamond toilet seat
While you and all your working buddies starve!

THE BOTTOM LINE (Movement 1)

Bradley Thunderbird Phoenix : Ahh, what is a - what is a typical day for you?

JT : A typical day is to wake up and say, “how am I
gonna get something to eat?” After I decide that I don’t really need anything to eat because I have this music I gotta do, I have to put this album together, I usually forget about that for a while. And then, say twelve hours go by and then I decide I think it’s time for me to get something to eat. So, usually a client or somebody will walk in,
give me a little bit of money and ah, you know, I do the job (record them).
And ah, you know (laughs) record some more music. And usually
somebody will come down in the studio and probably shake their
heads and say, “I can’t believe he’s still in the studio”

JT Mockery : I can’t believe he’s still in the studio.

JT : But ah, you know... You have to be reasonable in a situation. I
live in a house with different musicians and ya know whatever
free time I have I’m in the studio, recording, editing, whatever,
doing art work.

JT Mockery : Jerking off...

JT : That’s it. That’s basically my life.

BTP : Did you ever think that ah - hey, I need some cash. I need some
money. Maybe I’ll do a 9 to 5 for a little while or a part time job?

JT : No, I don’t even think twice about it. I think to do that I...
right now at this point I’d feel like I’ve given up or I failed in my goal...

JT Mockery : You sir have failed

JT : ...in trying to really, really make it as an artist. There’s nothing wrong with doing a 9 to 5. You just have to find something you like and it’s very difficult if you just wanna create music all day. Who’s gonna wanna pay you for that, ya know?

JT Mockery : Some people actually get paid!

Well it’s the bottom line

Mr. Cynic : (E pluribus zombiest)

Well it’s the bottom line : Money.

Mr. Cynic : That’s right. In money we trust!

Well it’s the bottom line : MONEY.

Mr. Cynic : Because GOD is money.

It’s the bottom line : Money.
It’s the bottom line

Mr. Cynic : Polyester greenback that’ll get you to heaven!

It’s the bottom line

Mr. Cynic : You lust after money. You filthy pirates.
Know me by my money and you shall be free.

It’s the bottom line

Mr. Cynic : Free as long as you have lots and lots and lots
and lots of.. Money. It’s friggin’ paper!

Money...

The Priest : Money. For your very fabulous wonder star.
Fabulic wonder desert star. Money that you can
make by selling people anything you can get your
hands on. Anything at all. Dead children. Dead monkeys.
Anything dead.

Phillup : Dead fried ice cream.

The Priest : Dead - lots - living fried ice cream!

Phillup : Lobster on a - on a rash.

The Priest : Lobster on a rash. You can sell codfish with nails in it.

Phillup : You can... (laughs)

The Priest : I mean, the sky’s the limit.

Well it’s the bottom line : Money

Mr. Cynic : That’s right. In money we trust.

Well it’s the bottom line : Money

Mr. Cynic : Because God is money.

It’s the bottom line : MONEY

Pretentious Lounge singer : There have been times I feel that I’ve crossed the limit. Times like that the moment seems so cruel . But when I feel that I’ve been pushed passed my limit. I rest my head and dream of holding you... MONEY!
(Ahh boloney)

Well it’s the bottom line
It’s the bottom line : Money
Well it’s the bottom line
It’s the bottom line : Money, Money, Money
Money ... Money

BTP : We all fall under the tyranny of the clock.

THE BOTTOM LINE (Movement 2)

A new age version of “My Friends Have Left Me”
plays in the background :

Well it’s the bottom line - It’s the bottom line : Money
It’s the bottom line - Well it’s the bottom line : Money
I’m worthless trash from nowhere
I’m worthless trash from nowhere, that’s the bottom line

Yeah it’s the bottom line : Money
It’s the bottom line
Yeah, it’s the bottom line : Money

There they were. The two of them sailing in a mud puddle in
a paper dixie cup boat.

Susan Battley : It’s the bottom line.

I Can Hardly Hold My Food Down Interlude

Letty Fores :
Ride the tubes up and down with a guy named Julio
Spend my days and nights in a one room studio
Walk the city streets, my walk, my blaring coolio
Please fence me in...

SB : It’s the bottom line etc...

Letty Fores:
Please fence me in - Please fence me in

Pseudo Letterman : Oh my god he’s got a CD! Run for your lives!

Marci Geller : ... no I was just sayin’ you have to read some of this stuff.
Number 15 : Hyper laxative taxi pukers with pre-coordinated
fetch alternatives sans hornulator. And then he’s got : The
influences of Winnie The Poop toilet hoop covert fax sheet
protectors will unlickable linoleum wipe offs. It’s blatant
afterlife effects on public access television morals.
Oh man, what’s going on in that guy’s brain?

SB : It’s the bottom line etc...

Gotta Go Now dudes : Lattle lattle it’s a cattle it’s a cattle it’s a lattle lattle lattle it’s a cattle it’s a cat! (repeat)

The Akai Connection interlude
JT : I’m flipping out!

L. Ron Hump : Money! I smell money. I need more money!

(laughter and snare drum unison)

The Priest : Barney was an old shoe salesman who sold slippers
to Lake Victoria. Why he sold it to an inanimate object
I will never know. I talked to the man once, he made
no sense. But he knew how to tell a dirty joke. For
instance, this one with the clown and the zebra.
I.. seems I don’t remember that one so I guess I’ll just
laugh it off.

(Canned TV laughter and various montages around
“I Can Hardly Hold My Food Down”)

Nigey Lennon and JT :
Please help me get to the bottom of it all
Please help me get to the bottom
Please help me get to the bottom of it all
Please help me get to the bottom of it

(More loops and Teddy Kumpel guitar improv)

ND (singing a Paul Michael Barkan lick) : Drive me down...

JT (under the song Wild Toys) :
Signs? Neat idea. Why back home we have to scream
for every exit. Exit 7! Hey!

Laura Tabacco : (laughs)

Nick DiMauro :
The guy on corner every time a cars go by...
EXIT 7!

Scotto: Ahhhh...

ND : Drive me down...
Track Name: There They Were / Everybody Suffers The Bottom Line / Memphis Pie Hat / If You Leave To Go Outside / Balloon Farting Contest / I Can Hardly Hold My Food Down #1
THERE THEY WERE

Sri and Arty Rukidin :
There they were. The two of them. Sailing in a mud puddle in a
paper dixie cup boat. The two of them oblivious of each others
feelings. Sharing nothing. There they were. The two of them. Two
museums with no clue of how they depended on one another. One
had a Louie the 14th table as a chest. The other a Tiffany™ lamp
for a hair piece. Together they formed a unique medalion in the
reflection of a squirrel’s eye. Witnessed by a baby rolling on the
grass.

Marci Geller : Marce iz sane, marce iz sane, marce iz sane, marce iz sane.

Sri and Arty Rukidin :
Yes, listen. There they were. The two of them. Two museums with
no clue of how they depended on one another. They spin dry in
the wind bumping into one another. Sparking. Igniting. Inviting a
curious notion in the dreams of a foreigner on a bus to purgatory.
Sand paper clusters smoothing out the threatening clouds dusting
far beyond the means of breathing. Never stopping once to think
of the impending danger of suffocating our unlikely pair. Not even
the baby over there gets it. Yes, there they were. The two of
them. Two museums with no clue of how they depended on one
another. There they were. The two of them. With no clue.

JT :
Everybody Suffers The Bottom Line
Everybody suffers it’s a well known fact.
Everybody suffers it’s a well known fact in this world
In this world
Everybody suffers it’s a well known fact.
Everybody suffers it’s a well known fact in this world
In this world
How long can we keep holding on?
How long until we give it up?
Maybe there’s a reason that we can’t explain
A perfect beast maybe the end results of pain in this world
In this world...

The “I Can Hardly Hold My Food Down” / Meryl Mathews /
Teddy Kumple 1995 improvisation Interlude plays here...

L. Ron Hump (as a younger man) :
La La La La La!
Well I gotta work. And I gotta feed. And I gotta
work and I got no time to read. And I only got two
days a week to be alive. And I gotta go back to
work and that’s the bottom line. Gotta work. Gotta
feed. Gotta work. Only got two days a week.
And that’s the bottom line.

JT and FST : This small change is reflected best perhaps in the
sand dollar which shrank to almost nothing at the
bottom of the pool.

Well that’s the bottom line.

Susan Battley : It’s the bottom line.

LRH : But that’s the bottom line.

SB : It’s the bottom line.

LRH : But that’s the bottom line.

SB : It’s the bottom line.

LRH : But that’s the bottom line.

SB : It’s the bottom line.

LRH : But that’s the bottom line.

SB : It’s the bottom line.

ND :
I keep the cash in my pocket.
I like to keep it next to my wallet
If you get it you have defeated me
But I can get it from the woman who created me

Nigey Lennon : Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...
So anyway, I got hold of this now defunct record
label and they indeed were interested. Hashed out the terms of a contract and it was, you know a fairly good deal for me. Problem is, being a small label I never saw any money (laughs). But that’s another story.

Mr. Edison : What was... what was the label?

Nigey Lennon : Ahh, well I guess we can talk since they are defunct.
It was called Muffin Records. They’re in Austin, Texas. And ahh,
it was quite - quite amusing dealing with them. Ah, very
strangely little run operation (laughs). Ah, kind of surreal.
Wouldn’t you say John?

JT : Yahh, surreal.

SB : It it it it it it it it it it it it it it it’s the bottom line.

More montage and MM and TK improvisation along with
“There they were” and SB saying : “It’s the bottom line”

Letty Fores :
Please fence me in. Please fence me in.
Please fence me in. Please fence me in.
Please fence me in.

Nigey Lennon : What it is, is both of us had started out working in our
respective bedrooms as kids with tape recorders at different times.

Memphis Pie Hat :
An instrumental from 1982 I wrote out and got my sister to
play flute on. It was recorded on that respective tape
recorder Nigey was talking about : The Akai GX-4000D.

JT :
If You Leave To Go Outside
If you leave to go outside
They will eat you up alive
And spit out all your mem’ries and savor your sins
Commercialize the secrets you’ve been hiding within
It’s not like you can sue them or do anything
If you leave to go outside, yeah.
If you leave to go outside
Please remember not to cry
That’s what they eat for supper time
And smash your face right into the table
Owwww!

Pseudo Letterman : What a segue.

Balloon Farting Contest
( Music written for Bradley Thunderbird Phoenix's Montage Radio Theater fades in juxtaposed with Bottom Line music and the melody from “ I Got Style, I Got Class”. All this while...

JT : There are only two days left before the big balloon farting
contest and I want to win first prize. I've been practicing
for this event for 27 years and I think I finally have it down to a science.
I can control the air in my balloon so as to maintain a
relative pitch of A-440 for over three minutes.
The sound doesn't waver and only four of the six gerbils
will actually loose consciousness in the interim.
My advice for those single couples driving in from
Jamestown, New York :
Leave your I Love Lucy inflatables at the door.
Too much mylar becomes a fire hazard once the hot air
flames reach 600 Celsius.
Remember, we are not messing with cold fusion here,
only a ghost of the real thing.

JT Mockery : Yeah. You’ve given up. You sir have failed.

A sick JT sings :
I can hardly hold my food down
Mayonaise and Crisco™ grease
Bubbling in my stomach with some meat grinds
Hot dog juice and cold Listerine™ Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

That’s the bottom line - It’s the bottom line
That’s the bottom line - It’s the bottom line
That’s the bottom line - It’s the bottom line

HOW MUCH DOES EVIL COST?

I will always be a wealthy man
when my working day is through
‘Cause I will always have you in my hand
And there’s nothing else I’d rather do

Old lady next to the Priest’s alien abduction :
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out, etc...

(The early 8 track instrumental “That Sud’n Bug” plays here)
Unknown R&B girl :
There was time... It’s not the way out

SHE'S A BIG DREAMING KABLOONA

JT :
Trying to figure out what to do after the funeral.
It’s gonna cost seven thousand dollars to bury
somebody after they’re dead. Ya end up spending
more money...they have ta get buried in a box, in
a hole, a box, a hole, the hole, in front of the dirt,
the dirt... etc...

Pseudo Massimo :
When dey whistle blows and sleep is in my head
who will I be dreaming of?

Jim Dexter : She’s big.

Pseudo Massimo :
When I pull the shades...

Jim Dexter : She’s big? No.
Pseudo Massimo :
And you’re not in my bed..

Jim Dexter : She’s big. Ok.

Pseudo Massimo :
Who will I be dreamin’ of?

Jim Dexter : She’s... oh more to it. Get it right. She’s big!

Pseudo Massimo :
For you and I...

Jim Dexter : She’s big.

Pseudo Massimo :
...have magical ties

Jim Dexter : She’s big. Heh, heh, heh. She’s vast. Larger then life.

Pseudo Massimo :
For you and I have three things in mind:
A kiss, a tough, a double sided rule
Where the devil in our hearts melted like a fool
Maybe this was more than what we hoped for?

Jim Dexter : Bigger. Bouncier and I don’t know - what?
She’s Big! She’s big? No. She’s big. Extraordinarily huge. She’s big!

JT : (Over a reggae version of “Roll Off Kabloona”)
The premise for what I was trying to get at in this
tune is like a huge pair of pants?

Jim Dexter : Yeah?

JT : And people kind of live in the pants and it kind of
like travels different areas but da... it’s like... it’s sym, symbolic kind of thing where things are actually in workable fashion. Everybody works together.

Jim Dexter : Yeah?

JT : And they get to go around anytime, anywhere...

Jim Dexter : So it’s like a pants... it’s, it’s like a colony..

JT : Right!

Jim Dexter : ... of people living in these pants and the pants actually walk around,

JT : Right. Exactly.

Jim Dexter : Because of the actions of all the people.

JT : Right. Something like that.

Jim Dexter : That would be big. Heheheh.

JT : A big pair of pants.

Jim Dexter : A big...

It’s the bottom line.

B.T.P :
We all fall under the tyranny of the clock.
Also wanted to mention why I call myself Bradley
Thunderbird Phoenix. And that’s because I’m both
African American and Native American at the same
time. Ok? The thunderbird is the mystical bird for the
Indians (the native Americans) and the phoenix is a
Greek word for the African concept of that mystical
bird which represents spiritual re-birth. Ok. let’s move
here. Let’s see. What have we have here on
Columbus? It says here : Columbus. The only thing
that Columbus discovered was that he was lost.
That’s the only thing he really discovered. Other than
that the people were already here!
Track Name: Vista Allocation / Rudolf’s Annoying Bottom Line
VISTA ALLOCATION

Vista allocation from the lunch box committee
won’t ya squirt a little light in my hole?
Why is the turkey bird filled up with confetti
and the news of how you doctored the polls
Ain’t it a shame that my cynicism’s clear?
Pledges of allegiance are a thing of the past
Ain’t it a shame that I’m less than cavalier?
Oh vista allocation who to trust?
For there’s no more truth except for the files on us

C.I.A Dude :
Let me see ah... 27b Stroke 6, curly haired man going bald around forty
pretending to be a composer... That’s you, right?

Lawyer caledonia cantoneezer fat bologna past the

It means a bunch of nothing
like those bozo politicians at the poly fickle liars brigade
Ain’t it ashame that the eagle had to die?
Leavin’ it’s scrawny caucus on the poor people’s lawn
Ain’t it ashame that that the eagle has expired?
Oh vista allocation we’ve been had
By the one true god and who smells just like money and gnads...
(Smell it. Big ones. Go Nads. Go team go!)

Longwood Cheerleaders :
YEAH... GO TEAM WIN!

Push says the dolly as I nail her with my body in a dream I had
In comes the born again conservative
kind of robot tryin’ to thwart my plans
What is right isn’t exactly what is right or by nature what it’s suppose to be
Harry Harrison, Harry Harrison, Harry could ya play a golden oldie for me?
From the good old days
Yeah, the good old days
When I was still young and naive
(back in the gray years - back in the salad days)

Vista allocation from the lunch BOX committee
won’t ya sneak a little soul in my shoes
The ones I got are hurtin’ from your man behind the curtain
Mr. “latest tax evasion guru”
Ain’t it a shame that us poor ones have to cry?
Your medical mafia meanies keep us barely alive
Ain’t it deranged that your neutral is in drive?
Oh vista allocation blessed it be
What a mess you’ve made
What a mess you’ve made
What a mess you’ve made!
Better off that we don’t see

Hear no, see no, speak no evil - oh no
Hear no, see no, speak no evil - oh no

RUDOLPH'S ANNOYING BOTTOM LINE

The OLD MAN : Why is he always by himself all the time?
Is there something wrong with the kid? Is there something wrong with the plate?

Voice of Reason : He’ll grow out of it. Take it easy.

The OLD MAN : Take it easy? Whaddaya mean take it easy?
The world’s got no time for this guy. Ya can’t take it easy.
What’s a matter with you? There is absolutely no time to take it
easy. Everybody run, run, run, don’t you know?
If you’re not out there working... you’re already twenty one...
(un-intelligible dialog)

FLO :
I think somebody kicked him in the head or something.
I’m not really sure. Alice?

Doug McKenzie : You know a lot of people have asked me...

Nervous Comic : Why in the world does the guy have such
a weird voice? Doesn’t he know? Doesn’t he realize?

(Under a warped version of "Residual Echoes Residing In Bogle Cabinet #47
(part A)", Susan Battley speaks :

Let’s start today with a brief detour to the Oxford English dictionary to look up the term, “entrepreneur”. Not surprisingly entrepreneur is derived much as it sounds from the French language. With references to it’s use in English going back at least to the 15th century. The French verb, “entrepondre”, means to undertake. And entrepreneur is someone who undertakes a task.
Indeed, entrepenuers are supreme enterprises today as they were some five hundred years ago. Speaking of today, with feet planted firmly in the present we’ll change our focus from the past to the future.
Track Name: Once Again
ONCE AGAIN

Swim in any ocean and you will know it
the fish ain’t what they used to be
The waves didn’t care if it took a million years just to grow it
the only thing left is a satellite for TV
Then the comets spun the twisters and they kept on screwin
Stuff was falling from the sky for days
Looks like a new generation for the world is stewin’
just like when we came and the dinos went away

It’s all too scary so I hear you say
No truer words have ever been spoke
Can’t pack your bags and run to catch a train
it’s not a pretty picture

I’m afraid it’s the end
so goodbye my dear friends
I’m afraid it’s the end of life as we know it here on earth...
Once again.....................................


The clouds went black all around and the sun to took a powder
as lightening ripped across the looming sky
Then the mother-ships landed and the humming got louder
And all that I could say was “my oh my!”
I doubt that they came for a coke and an order of fries

Those prophets saw it comin’ years ago
Folks thought that they were all insane
How they lived their lives I just don’t know
It was not a pretty picture

I’m afraid it’s the end
So goodbye my dear friends
I’m afraid it’s the end and you know it my friends
I’m afraid it’s the end of life as we know it - here on earth...
Once again

Those prophets saw it comin’ years ago
Folks thought that they were all insane
How they lived their lives I just don’t know
It was not a pretty picture

I’m afraid it’s the end So goodbye my dear friends
I’m afraid it’s the end and you know it my friends
I’m afraid it’s the end of life as we know it here on earth...
Track Name: Same Now More Or Less
SAME NOW MORE OR LESS

Rain cries
Flower children paint umbrellas
Mindless and void of reason
like lemmings lead to the water
So it's so easy to discover fascist lies
Under covers you commit your compromise

Paisley patterns thrown up on the wall
Never thought they'd fade this early
Peace sign candles lay cracked on the floor
Hoped they'd always keep on burning I guess
But it's the same now more or less

Safe nights
Sheltered by the stars that became the 1000 ponts of light
Hear the guns click off a the new order
It’s so easy to preach to others ethics and moral fibers
Time to realize you've become your parents in disguise....

Paisley patterns thrown up on the wall
Never thought they'd fade this early
Peace sign candles lay cracked on the floor
Hoped they'd always keep on burning I guess
But it's the same now more or less

You're terrified, I’m paranoid
Can't verify our destination
Self sacrifice - Internalize
Why oh why oh why?

Paisley patterns thrown up on the wall
Never thought they'd fade this early
Peace sign candles lay cracked on the floor
Hoped they'd always keep on burning I guess
But it's the same now more or less!

Deena Charles :
So how do you put yourself in a good frame of mind? Woulda ya just, ah wake up in the morning and take a few minutes to thank God and thank the universe…

Chris Pati :
I do that all the time. I always thank God for - for everything I've been given in my life and that I've been able to acquire through being intuitive and being able… You look like you're about to laugh… (laugh)

JT :
Nothing. It's great.

CP :
Ha ha ha…

JT :
I was just gonna say carrots. Big screaming carrots will get me in a great frame of mind…

CP / DC (laugh)

DF :
Eat a carrot. It might taste great!

JT :
I might have been a vegetable or something in the other life.

CP/DC (laughs)

CP :
Well, I got a good line but I'll pass on it.

CP/DC (laughs)

DC :
Part of that over flowed into this life sometimes…

CP :
Something along those lines. We have to work together later so…

JT :
Things are really, really abstract sometimes. I don't know.

CP :
Carrots hah?

JT :
Yeah.

CP :
Ok.

DC :
Oh, boy. What advice umm… I'm gonna ask both of you this because I'm sure you both have different answers.

The Bottom Line...

JT :
Music, art and cinema well they used to inspire
Purest forms of humankind reduced to a dollar
The bottom line is king
Like the kings of out father’s then
Be grateful for the things
that slip through out father’s hands...
I don’t need to hear about the year 2000
I don’t need to fear about the second coming
I’m not in the mood to think about some kids with guns
Deed is done

Mitch Coen : Stravinsky back up straps.
Out of transit clearly markers - celery markers!
Out of transit celery, transit, celery out of transit order.
Country lime dancing in wolves it’s influence on Sally Struthers fly paper children.
Teeth teasers : Large or too large?
Siberian butter fudge mutation vibrating above the Mexicananapolis 5000. Geiger counter culture and it’s reluctance to wear foreskin umbrella mittens.
That’s all I ever learned how to read.

JT : That’s pretty good Mitch. Thank you.

Mitch Coen : Heh.. where do you, where do you make these things up?

SB : The future...

JT : S...A...3
Track Name: Keeps On Turning Once Again / The Time Will Come / Godhclaw / Unconsenting Cereal Kittens
KEEPS ON TURNING

Some are born so proud, yet easy to sell their dignity
Some are lost and found
A twist of the fate brings you closer to me
Well, walk without a sound and you'll see an eternity
Some are sacred, some are naked,
Throw the dice and you'll see what I mean
People always come and people always go
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Sometimes it’s a yes and sometimes it’s no
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Yeah ... eh yeahhhhh
Brother stole a car
Sister lost her virginity
Mother licks her scars
Father split with the nun from the farm...
People always come and people always go
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Sometimes it’s a yes and sometimes it’s no
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Life can move real fast and life can move real slow
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Yeah.. Hey yeahhhhh, Hey yeahhhhh, Hey yeahhhhh,

Gian DiMauro : This was where a solo was gonna go
except our soloist... kind of a sad story... It has to do with a duck!

JT : Gorgo Twain has gone Hahwhyin!

Gian DiMauro : That’s for Scotto. This is where we all come together.

GD / JT : Keeps on turning!

People always come and people always go
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Sometimes it’s a yes and sometimes it’s no
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Life can move real fast and life can move real slow
But the world don't care it just keeps on turning
Yeah.. Hey yeahhhhh, Hey yeahhhhh, Hey yeahhhhh,

Gian DiMauro : This is all based on a true story.

JT : Teach it with the proper!

Gian DiMauro : I’d like to now bring up the Gearettes.

JT :
Well it’s the bottom line : Money
Yeah it’s the bottom line
God, it’s money

THE TIME WILL COME

Well you can’t hold on to what you got
Ya got to let it go
No matter if it’s riches or the person you love so
No matter if it’s the house you built
Or the kids you’ve raised
The time will come when everything will all be taken away
So live life to the fullest
Live it day by day
Don’t let petty worries get you down
‘Cause no matter what you do
No matter what you say
The time will come when everything will all be taken away
Yeah, the time will come when everything will all be taken a way!
And that’s the facts Jack, THE BOTTOM LINE.

Track Name: Quit Your Job. Move To Las Vegas
Quit your Job. Move To Las Vegas

Pat Adkins :
This guy lives in the Midwest. One day he wakes up getting
ready to go to work. Hears a voice in his head.
The voice says :
“Sell your house. Quit your job. Go to Las Vegas.”
He thinks wow, that’s strange. But you know he gets up.
He goes about his day. Gets out. Goes to work. During
lunch time he’s sitting out in the field there looking at things.
It’s all nice. Taking a break. And here’s this voice in his
head again and it says :
“Sell your house. Quit your job.
Take all your money. Go to Las Vegas.”
He goes, “Man, this is very strange”.
That night you know, he’s laying in bed
as he’s going to sleep he hears the voice :
“Sell your house.” And he’ll hear, “Quit your job”.
And he hears, “Take all your money. Go to Las Vegas.”
Now this starts to go on a lot in his head and it’s making him
crazy. He’s going to work. He’s at work. It’s in his mind
constantly. So one day he says, “I just can’t take this anymore”.
So he does it. He sells his house. Takes all the money out
of the bank. Hops on a plane. Goes to Las Vegas. He’s on
the plane. Plane lands in Las Vegas. He gets off the plane.
He’s sort of wandering in the airport when all of a sudden he
hears the voice in his head :
“Go to the casino.”
He goes, “Ah, ok”. So he grabs his stuff and he goes to the
casino. He’s in the casino. He’s wandering around.
He’s looking. And he hears the voice say :
“Go to the roulette wheel”.
He goes, “Oh cool. Ok.” (rubs his hands)
So he gets to the roulette wheel and he’s there.
He’s looking around the table. He’s getting the vibe and he’s
getting his chips together. And he hears the voice and the
voice says, “Play red 17. Put all your money.
Everything you own on Red 17.”
He goes, “Aw this is it man. I’m so excited. I know this
voice is gonna make me a lot of money”.
He puts all of his chips down on Red 17.
The croupier spins the table. The turntable’s going.
The ball’s rolling. It drops.
Black 9.
All of a sudden the guy looks up
and he hears the voice in his head.
The voice goes :
Fuck!

JT / Pat : Ha ha ha ha ha ha....
Track Name: Depressing Bottom Line Waltz
DEPRESSING BOTTOM LINE WALTZ

You and I have seen hard days
Cold and lonely nights
Not a prayer left, barely able to move
Frozen motion and nothing to prove
I don’t know...
Is it worth the pain to live? I don’t know...

You and I have weathered the storms
Made right from wrong so it seemed
But then we thought again looking back on our lives
How is it any different when the next cross road arrives?
I don’t know...
Is it worth the pain to live? I don’t know...

Life is just a memory waiting to forget
When we’re dead and gone will it make a difference?
To this question I regret, I have no answer
No sure answer

But you are here at least I think
Blessed be my friend
Take me up to the last day we hear each other speak
The sound of the floor boards the last time they creek
I don’t know... I don’t know
This stupid fucking life leaves me cold.
