Far Parade

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Well I'm not a native speaker, but I think

"As ye sow so shall ye find your Car ...is burning at the mine "

is absolutely hilarious.

(maybe It's because I'm not a native speaker... :? )
There have been better plans
But none that I could ever understand...

Yes, I agree ... offers quite a few layers ... it's just good, it's just Sisters' lyrics ... :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

I've seen some interesting references on Dominion as to this,
but I wouldn't quote them without asking ...

Isn't the usual expression "Make a line"?
So I conclude there's a pun in the term "form" here.
Formaline? Are there any bodies to preserve? Image

To form a line: military style, ordered, possibly size order etc… all perfectly acceptable

Has this been played yet?
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

here's what Back in time posted under the thread for the Zagreb gig:
Back in time wrote: NO Far Parade, we had a chance to talk to Ben in the afternoon (well jost 7 did) and he claims that lyrics are done, but music is not finished and not rehearsed, so again I do not believe we will hear it soon.
although i do have my doubts about the lyrics being finalised. not with :von: 's track record with, ummm...., "lyric stability" anyway :lol:
