Lyrics

 

I Knew a Dragon

     Just when you think life can't get any stranger.

     A number of years ago, I went to a hypnotherapist to help me stop smoking.  Within 2 days I was back to a pack and a half a day, $100 poorer, and having this series of other lives parading through my head every time my mind was not occupied with something else.  It got to the point were I'd wake and say, "where are we going today?" 

     It was all very benign.  Fortunately, the recollection of pain and hardship is minute compared to the actual occurrence.  Imagine if a women carried the full memory of her labor and child-birth?  Ohhh! 

     So, posited for your listening pleasure is a glimpse of a few places  I'm told, (through the Id or Ego, a Guardian or Jungian daimon?)  that I've been.

     The song was by far the easiest one I've ever written, the pen moved by itself.
