What a strange day
maybe I was dreaming
nothing seemed entirely awake
what uncertain light

What a strange night
it's dancing with the candle
its atmosphere is scandalous and drunk
you can cut it with a knife

what a strange life
even as it's passing
its hard to see it happening at all
like a shadow on the wall

what a strange god
if everything is nothing
then why is nothing ever what it seems
what a hidden kind of love

what a strange word
just because you told it
don't mean you told anything at all
its better from a mime

and what a strange line
wrapped around in letters
a drawing for a symbol for a sound
its never right before its wrong

what a strange song
a heat to beat the rhythm
a brain to move the melody along
a tune of everybody's choice

what a strange voice
coming from the speaker
recorded on the twentieth of may
what a strange day

    MemoryDr. Dog performed this for the first time live at my request in Memphis! Love this song.

    It just seems to be stream of consciousness. deep profound random thoughts.
