Lazy Feckin’ Hippies

Oh I used to love the way
You loved to be around me
Oh I used to love the way
You loved me being in good form
Oh I used to love the way
You’d celebrate and crown me
Till in the end, I was myself again
- up the walls at home

I really can’t believe
The mystic cack you keep on spouting
You’re convinced there’s hotels
Full of aliens on the moon
But I am, strang-el-y att-racted
To the one concept you’ve studiously rejected
That of Energy Vampires
And their prescence in this room

I can’t stand Lazy Fecking hippies
Claiming their energy is love
Their psychedelic snaking ladders
Leave them higher plane backstabbers
That rank the cuckoo higher than the dove

I’ve learned never to trust anyone that laughs when nothings funny
I’ve learned never to trust anyone with too many best friends
And to Never ever trust anyone whose religion needs money
To mete you out the truth on which your soul’s salvation depends

I can’t stand LAZY Feckin Hippies…

If I have to listen to another woolly notion
I will vomit and choke and wheeze and cough
You could knit a hat and a couple of scarves
From last nights half-baked mixed metaphors
Its a tragic roundabout - please let me off

I put it to you, dear horatio
That these people offer brain fellatio
But I would rather hang around kings cross station
Than submit once more to their cranial penetration
Do you think they’ve got the message yet? Christ only knows.

His gentler side comes across in his beautiful folk songs and country-blues tinged tales of caravan life ... more
