In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
Based on our previous discussions, you had to know this was coming.
Some are pretty obvious, some not.
FAIRIES WEAR BOOTS. - BLACK SABBATH
The song is about a man who sees fantastic , crazy things. He believes they are real.
Everybody thinks he's nuts, he goes to a doctor and the doctor tells him he is not crazy, he just takes to many drugs and smokes too much pot, and possibly drinks too much....therefore he sees things that are not really there, like fairytale creatures dancing around in boots. Pretty simple, I think. But I'll bet someone else had a different opinion, if they ever even stopped to think about it.
I started out with a not very complex song, I am sure we will have deeper songs as we go along.
In the last year or so, I've become friends with Texas Terri (a fairly well-known Punk singer living in Berlin) and the Stitches (big 1990s/2000s Hollywood skate punk band....IMO, put Billy Joe speed freak to shame. Of course, BJSF has great eye-liner).
Please, my stalker....don't claim I'm trying to be cool, or whatever it is you think one might try to be. Me? I assume you accept that you, me, Texi, Hf, DD, St. Yoga, and the Stitches are just.....us. Anybody that goes into music to make money is an idiot.
The long-suffering point? ;-) IMO - and I'm right, sans doubt - Texas Terri and the Stitches were ultra, crazy maniacs. Seriously, legendarily crazy.
Today? Texi, Michael (Stitches singer) and Skibs (Stitches drummer) have been clean for about 15 years....20 for Texi, I think. And all 3 are as wild, crazy, compelling and irresistable - probably more so - then they ever were off their t1tts gnashing their teeth in 1997. And I love and admire them for that.
