"Hang Ten" as written by and Ghazal/martin....
I think of her in the sunken blue
I think of her

Living in a plastercine of colored dream
Fire me up with acetylene
She's the rust in my gun
Fire me up I'm done

Peace love hang ten California
Dreaming of the perfect wave
Yeah yeah yeah

Floating down stream of unconscious
Waiting for a girl on a train

The train of thought falling off the track
Radios and Cadillacs
Satellite in the sky
Kiss me first before I die

Peace love hang ten California
Dreaming of the perfect wave
Yeah yeah yeah

Son now take care don't they warn ya
Man there's going to come a rain
Yeah yeah

Mm mm California
Waiting for a girl on a train

I think of her in the sunken blue
In the month of may
I wait for her as the storm comes screaming through my veins

Peace love hang ten California
Dreaming of the perfect wave
Yeah yeah yeah

Floating down the stream of unconscious
Waiting for a girl on a train
Yeah yeah

Peace love hang ten California
Dream long of the perfect wave
Yeah yeah yeah

Son now take care don't the warn ya
Man there's going to come a rain
Yeah yeah

California
Wearing yourself thin California
Wearing yourself thin California

Waiting for a girl on a train

    General CommentWell one reason why nobody would have responded is because the lyrics as of now are badly mangled into incomprehensible nonsense.

    >I think of her in the sunken blue
    >I think of her
    >Living in a plasticene-coloured dream

    Plasticene is normally coloured in bright colours designed to appeal to young children. His thoughts of her aren't realistic. She's a fantasy or a mermaid.

    >Fire me up, acetylene
    >She's the rust in my gun
    >Sweep me up, I'm done

    He's working in an automotive shop but he's thinking about how it's been a long time since he last saw her and he hasn't made love to anyone else in the intervening time. F


    >Peace, Love, Hang ten California dreaming of a >perfect wave
    >Floating downstream, unconscious, waiting for a girl on >a train

    His mind is still glazed over with nostalgic associations as he waits for her to arrive. He's just marking time until he sees her again.

    >The train of thought falling off the track
    >Radios and Cadillacs
    >Satellite in the sky
    >Kiss me first before i die

    He's still distracted in the automotive shop, his mood elevated by the thought of seeing her again.

    >Peace, Love, Hang ten California dreaming of a >perfect wave
    >Son now take care, don't they warn ya, man there's >gonna come a rave
    >California waiting for a girl on a train

    Underneath his relaxed bliss at knowing she'll soon be there, there's pent up sexual frustration.

    >California wearing yourself thin
    >California wearing yourself thin
    >California waiting for a girl on a train

    The waiting is getting on his nerves
