"blue pedal" as written by and Dan Goodwin Patrick Fitzgerald....
All that was gold has lost its shine.
All that was sure has become obscured.

Yes there was autumn,
Burnished and sleek.
Fit for smiling, winged gliding.

And now it's tarnished silver,
Fading metal rusting hearts.

Press the cooling pedal of blue freeze.
As she must sleep again,
She must sleep again.
Turn the collapsing wheel of green.

Between deaths we are butter,
Soft believing melting butter,
Well fed and well spread.
Good fed on these deaths of our kind,
Of our kind.

Spiraling outer and outer
Beyond what is there,
Behind the realm of senses.

Beyond love, beyond our hopeless humanness
Lies the other side of the bleeding rainbow
Where bones are collected
And we have come selected
To recover from this polluted mist.

Between births we're tearing,
Hard gurgling, snarling,
Fear, lean and wary, alert untrusty.

Still fed on these deaths of our kind
Where bones are collected
And we have come selected
To recover from this polluted mist.
Outer and outer and outer and outer and outer.

    General CommentThis goes with "Hammer," being about the devastation of AIDS in the gay community, but this could be about a survivor's feelings as well as the dread of impending death for one who is afflicted.

    This is, musically, one of my favorite KOD songs. I love the spaced-out delays and reverbs, the poly bass line, the hints of jazz in the chords, and the dynamics. Lots of popular groups of the time were doing the quiet-verse-to-loud-chorus thing, but KOD was one group that didn't do this to death, and when they did it at all, it was more like a color on the pallette to paint with than a way to be contemporary.
