He didn't like to jostle in the light
Finding it much soother in the night
With his face as pale as pancakes
And his posture in rebellion with his height

He was raised to respect Father he was loving to his Ma
Being kind to all the children and the animals he saw
In his youth he looked at Jacko with gleaming admiration
Moonwalking through the gardens of his Disneyland Vacation

Then he took a pallid mask and he glued it to his face
And it gave him the temerity to join the human race
He stood like great Ulysses with guitar in his hand
Pledging to deflate the cynical that plague the glory land

Buckethead

And the people came to know him as a man of noble cause
Ignoring eccentricities and interactive flaws
The ones that knew him best were the ones that
called him kind
Clueless to the depth of his complicated mind

But when he takes a pallid mask and he glues it to his face
It gives him the temerity to join the human race
Standing up like great Ulysses with
guitar in his hand
Pledging to deflate the cynical
that plague the glory land

Buckethead

    General CommentYeah, if you know anything about Buckethead, this song makes perfect sense. Buckethead, according to legend, was raised in a chicken coop. The whole purpose of his music career is to open Buckeheadland, a theme park... he's an amazing guitar player, and he certainly adds well to the top-notch mix that is C2B3...

    General CommentI found a 1994 interview that somebody had done over the phone with Buckethead's chief interpreter, Brian, that ocnfirms the admiration for jacko. It makes sense that he could have been upset by Jackson's problems. One's only recourse, when idols fall, is to....carry the ideals in oneself. And in a bat-squeeze crazy world, how do you maintain sanity?
