    With the tools of the digital age in full effect and the vision of their minds' eye realized, Chas, Neil, & Lars return as if only unforgotten.

Years in the making, you wouldn't even know that the high-speed internets were used to transfer audio at mind-boggling speeds...

fire come down the chimney like we’s the only place in town like that storm done back in ‘50 when it tore that old barrel house down backing it down the lane now that’s one girl who knows how to park the party light’s been on duallys up and down the block she’s not the only one if it takes all night we over-paid 2 dudes to sweep it and just when the check was cut ran out with the 6-string as soon as the shit lit up ooooh, chimney fire light ooooh, tighties no longer white
if every day were only an hour spirits pass in the shimmering night you sulk away like a dwindling flower hopelessly alive what’s that you say i told you that forever was a long long time (such a long time) we’re both so hopelessly tragic and you’re all dressed in black lipstick mottled and depressed loathed dishevlery as a mistress waiting patiently in line oh for the fallout
flying south before the winter for they know not what they’ve done sitting aboard the parent spaceship as pretty as the day is young it’s only time before the gandry the holy terror’s just begun northern light upon their shoulders two blind pharaohs in the night exchanging glances with their whispering eyes revealed at once by second sight it’s only time before the gandry the holy terror’s just arrived no need to monish one in orbit this lasting colic soon shall pass southern cross as our guidepost embarking unto the expanse ‘tis at once they were meandering regarding silence in the sun
it was a bright september day back in ought four he was hunting out past old state road with beans, his rabbit dog you should have seen the sight just down up the dirt road young lady leaning on a plymouth horizon all caught up in the mud then beans looked over to him & mitchie glanced back just then they knew what had to be done to get her back on track she was so grateful for what they had done she thanked young mitchie right then & there he sent old beans on a run he’s been with her for 6 months now a hilltown beauty queen shooting cans from his daddy’s hand all now seems just like a dream he was a good lookin’ kid never ‘shamed what he done was him & beans for the longest time, here come a pretty lady with a forked tongue woah-oh, someone hitting the road tonight woah-oh someone getting itchy whatever happened to mitchie? he was so young he’s a-blazin toward a western showdown throwing caution in the sun a couple years’ve gone by now she & mitchie moved in but him & beans still out shooting frogs & playing with road-kill remains mitchie been getting the bug, I’m not talking VD her yapper going both morning, noon & night, it might’ve even upset poor beans now the doors is a slammin’ romance battered and torn it’s either go down in flames with the ship or bail out on his own woah-oh, throwing down some o’douls tonight, woah-oh, driving into the city she was yap, yappin’ at mitchie ever since he was young mitchie’s not much for talking now unless them fighting words being slung whatever happened to mitchie? he was so young woke up on the wrong side of kansas & he knew his race was run
and when the deed was done not far from where the demon hung evening turns to night the last curdling flicker in his eye waiting to be told had left a vacuum in his soul violence & greed 2 pillars of the eternal creed he gave her a rose before he died they never made promises only god knows how hard he tried you know how bad demon possession is wanting to be free from the dark lord and his army those dark & lovely eyes mercy angel in cloaken disguise you might think her insane for welcoming the demon in his one final request to long savor the kiss of death
