So, relative to my last post, joeysdramaqueen and I discussed Live albums. I've seen a few reviews for the last album, V, released before the newest one Bird of Pray (not a typo) that I ordered last night.

V, which I *love* seems to have riled up the critics. "Slick", I think I saw more than a couple of times. Well, I love it. Love, love, love it. And because I haven't done it for a while, I'll have to post a special Live version of Lyrics I Freakin' Love.

But! I decided to put it in because I haven't listened to it in a couple of weeks. It's an enhanced CD and the little startup for a special player always annoys me, so I always cancel the installation. Sure, I need something *else* on my harddrive, thanks. Anyway, I thought I'd explore the CD, take a look around. Did that right-click explore thing on the E drive icon, and saw a folder labeled "Videos." Weh? Woohoo! Triple word score! A video for Simple Creed, one of my favorite songs on the album! And I'd never seen it before! So there's Ed Kowalcyz and the boys rockin' out in the middle of a cornfield in middle America, and Ed's doing his best neo-Jesus impression, calling a gaggle of youngsters forward like Live's version of the Sermon on the Mount.

I love that guy. I think I need to see it again. Go Ed, with your wigglin', spiritually-charged hips!

Aaaaa! According to Amazon, Australian Exclusive Release featuring Their Latest Album Packaged with a Five Track Bonus Disc that Includes Freaks (Radio Edit), Lakini's Juice (Live), Freaks (Album Version), Love My Way (Psychedelic Furs Cover), and Freaks (Remix).

T. B. D. (Tibetan Book of the Dead)
by Live

In the moment I was losing my head
Readin' too much and losin' my head and I was
Reachin' forward, I was already there
Readin' too much and losin' my head
This information caused a cut in the line
Now I'm remembering God and readin' too much
It's so nice
The print is smaller than the ants in the grass
I'll have to put it away now

In the morning there are things to be read,
Words to be said, and food to be fed,
But I won't be there.
I'll be clutchin' on a megaphone pointed at my head,
Would you be there,
Would you kindly, read this word for word
So loud and clear,
I can't remember it all,
It needs to be clear, I tell you,
If the feeling drops out of your voice,
Would you kindly pick it up

This is how, I'll go out tonight
Dressed in blue, by the book tonight
This is how, I'll go out tonight
But I don't need a book.

We're talkin' anchors, talkin' ships, we're talkin' seas,
We're talkin' everything you need
You should be workin' now,
Not only askin' how
And the whereabouts of where you'll be.
I don't suspect you will be thinking
When the brain is dead
And the mind has taken over,
This is a skill, this is not a game,
Where have you been,
Are you with us?
Can you hear us?
Got the megaphone pointed at you.
