KNOWLEDGE IS NOT NIL

as performed by

the Ken Ardley Playboys

on their new album

'city of westminster'

A bent pair of spectacles with a cracked lens

Lying on the floor of a corrugated hut

The hut is on raft heading for the rapids

You can't escape there is no door

This is indicative

Of failed aspirations

And prophetic of disturbing Influences upon your soul

Don't tell me about yourdreams

I don't care what they mean

Don't tell me about your dreams

Because facts are related and all objects are compatable

The code this message is taken from is the knowledge required to decipher it

Knowledge is not nil for we need to know what it is

 

 

Your running backwards down a hill

Naked while your teeth fall out

You meet your old headmaster

He's got a chicken under his arm

This signifies that you will shortly

Cultivate distasteful friends

For your advancement and gain

And inevitable embarassment

Don't tell me about yourdreams

I don't care what they mean

Don't tell me about your dreams

Because facts are related and all objects are compatable

The code this message is taken from is the knowledge required to decipher it

Knowledge is not nil for we need to know what it is

High above the tree tops

Sat in a yellow cardboard box

When your chased by a UFO

Turns out to be the lid of a saucepan

The indication is that your affairs

Will assume a complicated state

Owing to all your attention

Being absorbed by silly pleasures

Don't tell me about yourdreams I

I don't care what they mean

Don't tell me about your dreams

Because facts are related and all objects are compatable

The code this message is taken from is the knowledge required to decipher it

Knowledge is not nil for we need to know what it is
