#Snowden and the #USA: True, I'd give my right arm/To keep you safe from harm/And true, for you, I'd move to Ecuador/And I'd keep a little farm/Chop wood to keep you warm/But I don't really love you anymore.

Questus eram, pharetra cum protinus ille soluta
legit in exitium spicula facta meum,
lunavitque genu sinuosum fortiter arcum,
'quod' que 'canas, vates, accipe' dixit 'opus!'
Me miserum! certas habuit puer ille sagittas.
uror, et in vacuo pectore regnat Amor.
Ovid. Ars Amatoria. I. xxi-xxvi.

The Future Bible Heroes are back...

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

life is hard for kids today
they have to program everything
dude, they have to use computers
just to sing

if you keep them dosed on soma
you can spare them all their pain
keep your children in a coma
and stay sane

you can't let them go to school
for fear of bullying little beasts
and you can't take them to church
for fear of priests 

you can never really know, ma
if there motives remain pure
keep your children in a coma
and be sure

all that background radiation
oil companies run bad
party politics amok
good girls gone bad

they would just get melanoma
if they surfed in see-through jeans
keep your children in a coma
through their teens

little Caleb and Valoma
would be drugged up anyway
keep your children in a coma
starting today

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
keep your children in a coma
starting today!

"Keep Your Children In a Coma" by Future Bible Heroes

drink nothing but champagne
it makes life shorter
than drinking water
drink nothing but champagne
and you'll never say no to love

I agree with Sasha - could you (Mark) post a link to their actual music? The lyrics look interesting (http://stephinsongs.wiw.org/tab/69ls1.html), but my guitar playing days are over, and i cant extrapolate a tune from the harmonies (which seem to be I IV and V - i.e.bog-standard, of course)

OK - You posted a YouTube link while i was typing that, which i consider cheating. Listened to it - seems OK (could do with transposing up a tone or two to enable him to hit the low notes better). I will alert Rob to it - he might like it better (since the Youtube "similar to this"-type listing includes The Smiths, whom he likes).

"...when pushed for information on a recent Royal Shakespeare Company commission, Merritt names Arthur Schnitzler’s 1897 play La Ronde – about sexual and moral relations in turn-of-the-century Vienna – as the primary inspiration, though “it’s not at all recognisable now, so I’d say it’s an original work rather than an adaptation.” In addition, a new Future Bible Heroes record is on the horizon (“right now I have 22 backing tracks to work with”), while a third 6ths album was only recently abandoned (regrettably, he’s “back to square one with that” for the time being)."
