Track Name: Force Publique
Force Publique


Lizard on a rock
In the midday sun
Moves into darkness
For protection
Snakes in the grass
In the land of the free
Take me to the river
Leave me in the sea
Lord is there something that I should see
Because the Belgians are paying me
To cut their hands from the rubber tree
You’re wasting your time with me.

Cries in the night
Through a canopy of trees
Dew on the ground
Drips from the leaves
Shadow on the lake
Crocodile tears
Mountains of the moon
The source of your smile

Lord is there something that I should see
Because the Belgians are paying me
To cut
their hands from
the rubber tree
You’re wasting your time with me.

Track Name: Go Straight
chorus from: Okech Okelo by Jushua Mzee a Luo artist recorded in the early 50’s by Hugh Tracey- I’ll send you a copy if you drop me a line

text from police radio:
fristly indistinguishable radio noise then it reveals - "Go Straight ..the one at the back now - go straight"
more chopped up radio sound
"You step into empty space ......Extra Protection" from english radio advert
then at the end
"go straight where you are now - the one at at the back go straight ..past that power line -just go straight
now follow that road - towards the Nyala - and where that motorcar is standing"
Track Name: Rainbow Hibernation
Rainbow Indignation

Rainbow nation
Falling apart
Can’t even sing the blues
Red faces in the office
Staring at their orange juice

Yellow ballpoint pens click
Against teeth as they concentrate
On the green leaves in the water jug
Wondering why they’re there

24 hour emergency
spin doctors are waiting for you
to sign along the dotted line
and point out
the whistle blowers boyfriebd


blue skies through the window
indignation at the slanted view
of the presidential wardrobe
violence with the pointed shoe

24 hour emergency
spin doctors are waiting for you
to sign along the dotted line
and point out
the whistle blowers boyfriend

Track Name: Hearing Voices (in his head)
here we have a gentleman here who was providing sign language
of the event ..who people say he was just giving off gibberish
standing this close to the president who has a history…a track rec rod
of violent acts…schizophrenia……hallucinations and visions
ah ..says that he was actually hallucinating during the speech…ah close to the president..that close to the president…he saw angels at the event and has been violent in the past and suffers from schizophrenia
(babble of voices in my head)
he has admitted that he regularly loses control during his so called schizophrenic episodes
we know that he allegedly took a staff member hostage with a brick at one stage
he had a very erratic temper… he would often threaten physical violence against staff members…this was an individual who on his own version has claimed to have lost control
who is responsible
and what action will be taken to ensure that such a huge embarrassment never occurs
me I'm suffering from Schizophrenic which is controllable - I am under em ah ah treatment…positively …in strekfontein hospital in Krugersdorp right here in south
Africa - I've got kids …I've got family …they might say I'm mad ..but I'm a a man ..I'm a provider…I'm a neighbor ..I'm a friend …then you can call me fake after that……(babble in my head)
no no no do you want me to … lets be realistic ...media call me a security threat..
