"Here Today" as written by and Reginald Hope/lever Smithies....
Don't know what happened
But somebody lost their mind tonight
Not sure what happened
But I don't think I got home tonight
There's blood on my shirt
The clap of thunder and
I see my life go flashing by
The smell of sulfer and
I weep as I embrace the sky
And somebody screamed
(Where were you tonight?)
My chest is burning
I think someone set my soul alight
Don't know what happened
But I don't think I got home tonight
I wonder why
I wonder why
Ahhhh, there's madness here today
Ahhhh, I think I'll go away
Where is my wife?
Where is my wife?
I'm draining away
I'm draining away
(Draining away)
Here today

    General CommentMark's note from the official site:

    "Coming as they did quickly in the wake of the John Lennon murder (he had been shot dead a couple of months earlier) I'd always believed that they had stemmed from that. But it is now my belief that they are in fact snatches of my own future."

    General CommentThis is about the death of john Lennon in front of the Dakota building in New-York. In his agony, John Lennon could have been singing this words. What happens in the ten first seconds after violent death ? Mind disappears slowly and go away. Where ? Yes where is my wife, Yoko where have you been ?
