about

This song was originally recorded on tape in 2004 for the album "Worlds Apart", which I pulled out of circulation for falling short at the production end. Other worthy songs from that album have also found their places on other releases such as "B-Sides & Oddities". Vocals and horns are new.

lyrics

THE OTHER NIGHT


THE OTHER NIGHT I DREAMT OF A STORY IN THE PAPERS
ABOUT A SIMPLE MIND WHO INVENTED A WAR
IT SEEMED THAT HE AND HIS FRIENDS
SHAMELESSLY LIED ABOUT THE LOGIC
ABOUT THE REASONS ABOUT THE PURPOSE

IT WENT ON TELLING ABOUT SOME WICKED ELECTIONS
ABOUT A STREAK OF GREED RUNNING THE NATION’S SPINE
IT SEEMED THAT ONE BY ONE
THE STARS FELL IN THE HANDS
OF TWISTED MEN, CORPORATE FANATICS
STRATEGISTS, HYPNOTISTS AND BOUGHT-OUT JUSTICE

THE OTHER NIGHT I DREAMT OF A STORY IN THE PAPERS
ABOUT THE NEWS THAT BROKE AWAY ONTO THE OTHER SIDE
IT SEEMED THAT AS SKIES DARKENED
AND OIL COVERED THE SEAS
TURMOIL AND MADNESS POURED OUT THROUGH THE GATES
SMOKE FILLED THE AIR WITH THE ACRID SMELL OF DEATH

THE OTHER NIGHT I DREAMT OF A STORY IN THE PAPER
IT SEEMED THAT ONE BY ONE
THE STARS FELL IN THE HAND
OF TWISTED MEN, CORPORATE FANATICS
STRATEGISTS, HYPNOTISTS AND BOUGHT-OUT JUSTICE

THE OTHER NIGHT I READ A STORY IN THE PAPERS
IT WENT ALL ABOUT SOME WICKED ELECTIONS
THE OTHER NIGHT…

about

Francis Voignier San Francisco, California

I started my first band in 1967 and never looked back. I moved from Eastern France to Paris and then London where I made my professional debut. I worked in NYC
as a sideman between 78 and 82 before heading for SF where I did 10 years in the trenches with more bands than I can remember. I now live in Arcata, California.
