Pillform, No. 2

Through these last fifty years as television's taught us war is folly
and that you should never throw over your real friends
and in the end it might be better to give the trophy back
and tell em how you were cowed and conscripted
into giving milk for a war that you now understand

Through these last ten thousand years as books have taught us,
love is folly and that if you only have one friend then you're famous
and there's work and then there's making work as invisible as
wishing it down into pillform while staging spills with the
drink in your opposite hand

Through these last several moments words have taught me that words
are folly and that when the ancient slams into the transient
there's no way to determine who should get their money back
and after this everything is fitness
bigger dreams, bigger screens, bigger feelings are planned



Song Bio

"Pillform #2" is a rewrite of "Pillform #1," which was written to not even hardly satisfy a request by Daniel Richler to endorse his bid for a new TV Book Channel. TV, books? Books, TV? Words as folly set to music. Bigger dreams, bigger screens, bigger feelings are planned. - Through these last fifty years as television's taught us war is folly and that you should never throw over your real friends and in the end it might be better to give the trophy back and tell em how you were cowed and conscripted into giving milk for a war that you now understand Through these last ten thousand years as books have taught us, love is folly and that if you only have one friend then you're famous and there's work and then there's making work as invisible as wishing it down into pillform while staging spills with the drink in your opposite hand Through these last several moments words have taught me that words are folly and that when the ancient slams into the transient there's no way to determine who should get their money back and after this everything is fitness bigger dreams, bigger screens, bigger feelings are planned
