Little Johnny Golden HandsEating out of Garbage CansDid you get a whiff to what is trueWhile you were breathing cobbler’s glue?You came to me in my dreamsYou took me in, or so it seemedRiding around in your 4 X 4Prince of Peace or Lord of War?My Clint Eastwood man, my perfect dadYou were the father that I never hadImagine my surprise at your feet of clayI might have known, there’s just no wayThat you could be what you claimThe living truth, the sacred flameJohnny do you practice what you preachOr is your truth out of reach?Is this really what you want to be?Or are you waiting to be set free?You were only doing what you knew to be trueSo who the hell would question you? Why don’t we make a clean breast of it?Bare your soul now to this noviceWhy don’t we make a clean breast of it? Miracle man, look me in the eyeTell me you never told a lieYou taught us all to settle for lessBut oh Johannes, won’t you confessWhile we were giving up our lives (sex drives)Were you making whoopee with our wives?Stealing chicks from out of their nestsOh Johnny baby, who’s getting your best?You told us “This only looks bad”So why do I feel like I’ve been had?Now I know it’s hard but I have to askOn behalf of the men, we’d like our manhoods backWho’s the chicken and who’s the fox?Ice Messiah, on the rocksWhile you were building empires in the sandA drought has fallen across your landFisher King, upon your throneYou net is cast wide but you’re far from homeOh Johnny, is it getting all too much?Have your golden hands become a Midas touch?Now maybe I have read you wrongSo forgive the impertinence of my songBut I am asking tenderlyListen to your heart and listen to meIt’s time to set your pigeons freeFrom cosmic codependencyJohnny, are you ready to pay the priceTo draw back the veil and crack the ice?Coz the fragrance has gone from the roseAnd the emperor of Truth he has no clothes Pay no mind to the man behind the curtainWhat is truth, who the hell can say for certain?Pay no mind to the man behind the curtainPay no mindPay no mindPay no mind
The woman whom I am withhas no response to that.

Yay! Floyd's my fan again!
Yeah I suppose I am. Well yeah I am a big fan. It's funny how things go
You also got the closest to guessing what I've been up to while away, Mr. Anderson... (The info's in the SONG)
actually Floyd, a "big fan" would be someone who owned all my books or wanted me to sign "Catcher in the Rye."you must be a medium sized, with fries.
"(The info's in the SONG)"Pigeon fancying?
Perhaps medium sized with fries is correct. I have just one of your books and have never wanted you to sign Cather in the RyeHappy April 9th!
I'm starting to realize how big thing johnny was to you, great way of channeling your feelings and production was damn nice.
that was a teaser
I recently lost my father figure my fisher king... I gave him a crown I gave him a kings rope ( literly) I loved him so much and I let him go he died... of drinking to much,.. and somehow this reminds me of him. he was so much and so little , and I fucking miss him.
Well done! More to come I hope!
