Help! My recently uploaded single on streaming services is “Chasing My Tail”. It’s a funny story about a confused young man who copies everybody else’s art, even his own!
“I can fake a Picasso as well as anybody!” Pablo Picasso, via Robert Anton Wilson
If a tree falls in the forest, does anybody hear? And more importantly, to me, if you don’t listen, does anybody hear?
I apologize for being so cheeky! I may get a grip on my sense of humor some day.
Here’s the link that will take you to this song on your favorite streaming service:
When you click the “follow” and “like” buttons on streaming services, that helps me broaden my possible audience, because of some funny things called “algorithms”. The music business today is a whole new world. I’m getting used to it.
You’ve read this far, so, Thanks!
This song will morph into a video soon, I promise. In the meantime, here are the lyrics:
chasing the tail of my karma,
sometimes thought it would lead up my***,
till one day my brain exploded with too many words,
blew a fuse and that was enough
couldn’t taste the meal, so i ate the menu,
couldn’t buy the restaurant, so i blew up the computer
couldn’t live with guilt, so i blew it out the window
couldn’t handle living till i came to simply be
chasing myself out of existence, where do i end and you begin
sometimes thought i would lose my sense of humor
but that’s all there was in the end
stole part of one song and put it in another, now i forgot, what was that line?
am i condemned to plagiarize my own existence, can’t i do anything for the first time?
