Browsing around late night ATS and things seem rather quiet. Hmmm, maybe we could use a little cheery music.
Or we can sing a song of lament for our planetary woes.

Here is The Alan Parsons Project with ''Children of the Moon''


Pay no attention to the writing on the wall
The words seem Empty cause there's nothing there at all
We let the wise men beat the Drums too soon
We were just children of the moon

No one to turn to
Nowhere to Run to even if we could
Too late to save us but try to understand
The seas were empty there was hunger in the land

We let the blind man lead the Way too long
Easy to see where we went wrong
Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for
We're Lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Lost in the Middle of a hopeless world

Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the moon are hiding from the sun and the sky
Children Children of the moon watch it all go by
Children children of the moon are Blinded by the light in their eyes

No one to turn to
Nowhere to run to even if we could
Follow the pilgrim to the Temple of the dawn
The altar's empty and the sacrifice is gone
We let the Madmen write the golden rules
We were no more than mortal fools

Nothing to live for
Nothing to die for
We're lost in the middle of a hopeless world
Lost in the Middle of a hopeless world
Children children of the moon watch the world go by
Children children of the Moon hiding from the sky

I don't care. It's all psychobabble rap to me

Well seeing as we're in such a cheery mood, let's up the stakes.
Pass the beer and pretzels

Psycobabble Rap was what drew me to that album in the first place.

Phillip Glass. I have some of his work on my box. Cute caricature of him on the cover there.
So I call your Glass and raise you ''Lament'' by Libera.
