Turning back ten thousand years
It's all a blur where the taxi's go
Monster man a willing friend
Lucy serves the melon cold

Violent and delicious souls
Four red trucks dressed illegally
Mother knows how the bugle blows
Gonna get caught in her rug, babe

This is not a conclusion
No revolution
Just a little confusion
On where your head has been

Boats made out of paper float
Dreams made up for the banana king, darling!
Crumbs you have lapped freely of
Devious we all have been

Violent and delicious souls
Violent and delicious souls
This is not a conclusion
No revolution
Just a little confusion
On where your head has been

    General Comment"Pretty Good Year is really part two of Ode to the Banana King. Ode to the Banana King is part one - as you see, Lucy reoccurs. That's part two, Pretty Good Year. So I'll probably write part three."
    [Tori; Beat Magazine, July 14, 1994]

    General CommentFor years I've been hearing that line as "vi-vi-violent in a delicious sauce"
