Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Those who quit their proper character to assume what does not belong to them, are for the greater part ignorant of both the character they leave and of the character they assume.
- Burke, English Political Writer and Statesman (1729-1797)

Take your turning for changing
Before rearranging
Don’t you know that it’s cold in here
It’s been a long time since I’ve heard from you dear

Let me tell you about the place I live
Four walls and a wooden fence
I get a letter from you every week
You want to tell me that’s a recompense

When you’re committed there’s a hole in the wall
Committed
And the boys fill it all
Committed
Like the hole in your head
Committed
Makes me wish I was dead

Every day I walk in the field
I see the grass and the trees so real
I look up at the sky so blue
I wonder why I never hear from you

But I’m committed
There’s a hole in the wall
Committed
And the boys fill it all
Committed
Like the hole in your head
Committed
Makes me wish I was dead

Every day I exercise
In the yard with a big high wall
There’s a man with a nice green coat
He gets his pencil and he makes a note

And I’m committed
There’s a hole in the wall
Committed
And the boys fill it all
Committed
Like the hole in your head
Committed
Makes me wish I was dead

Committed
Committed
Committed

Committed
Committed
Committed
Committed

  • Hey Mike and Rich sounding good. What happened Mike to your Duran Duran tribute? Are you changing to A Flock Of Seagulls? (Ha Ha just kidding brother) I really enjoyed your version of this song. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless,
    Randy

    • Check you out with the call on the Flock of Seagulls song, not one of their big hits either, kind of an obscure one . . .

      Yeah, the Duran Duran tribute band is one the back burner for now as Mr. Seal’s a pretty busy man and hard to nail down. Definitely something we have to so one of these days though, I’ve got the wardrobe ready and everything.
