Black Widow 05:01
oh she’s a black widow spinning webs of sorrow round your mind she’s a black widow but all the same she always looks divine she sighs like a symphony her hair’s an ebony cascade her eyes gleam like diamonds in the shade black widow… she’s looking for a mate black widow… she uses love as bait she builds herself a cozy nest then she sits and waits she knows your wandering spirit must soon seek some rest oh she’s a black widow with charms that jangle as they dangle in your way she’s a black widow y’wanna leave alive you better do so right away she speaks of faith and honor but when she gets you in a corner you’ll go down on your knees trying to please her black widow… she offers you soft pillows black widow… oh she really knows how to get you in the mood come on in she’ll whisper but when you try and kiss her you’ll find yourself inside of her as food oh she’s a black widow spinning webs of sorrow round your mind she’s a black widow but what can you do, you know that it’s true love is blind [Dec 1980]

I ain't no vegetarian But that don't mean I ain't humanitarian I love people Especially strangers Because they've all got strange flesh Mmmmmmm oh won't you Gimme some strange flesh I'm addicted to strange flesh All I think about is strange flesh Gimme gimme some strange flesh Familiarity is all very fine If you wanna breed If you wanna breed contempt But look at that glossy femme fatale There's nothing about her that's banal She doesn't mind If you follow her around like a fool She knows you've got the hots for her That's why she keeps her cool But when it comes to love She can be really choosy If you wanna have some fun You better go see Lucy This lady ain't no floozy And she doesn't go for strange flesh Especially if you've not been Properly introduced She says she comes from a good family Everybody wears pajamas every night In blue & white stripes My mother used to say No meal is complete Unless you have a little meat On the table So I've quaffed a quail or two in my time (Indeed I have) I occasionally snack on snails (I don't mind ze slime) Well you can whip me up some whale Right out of the brine Woh-oh-woh I could bite your tail Cause I'm the passionate kind And I really wouldn't mind A little strange flesh Gimme gimme some strange flesh All I think about is strange flesh I'm really addicted to strange flesh Well I don't care if it's fat Or if it's lean So long as it's clean And excitingly strange So don't you waste your perfect poise And your expensive perfume on me Honey, you know I'm so easy So very easy to tempt But look at that glossy femme fatale There's nothing about her that's banal She doesn't mind If you follow her around like a dog She's a marvelous machine In which you'd love to be a cog But when it comes to food She can be really choosy If you wanna exercise your gums You better go see Lucy She's much more juicy And little Ms Lucy likes strange flesh She was born in Ampang Village All the people there are Hakka And these Hakka people eat Just about anything yeh But there's just one problem with Lucy (What's that?) She only goes for white meat With lots & lots of gravy So if you're just a poor brown boy With no money in his pocket... You better forget it!

Walking down the street Suddenly you meet Policeman on the beat Chairman on the cheat Don't do it in your seat boy What you need is... Presence of mind And essence of being The essence of being In the presence of mind Makes you feel so fine Standing on the hill Another day at the mill Shopping for some thrills Caught with your hand in the till Just let it hang out the window sill boy You're never alone with... Presence of mind Or essence of being The essence of being In the presence of mind Cuts a very fine line Now run to the mirror Look into your own face Can you see the error of your terror You're a living disgrace Nobody gives you a dime But you don't give a damn for... Presence of mind Or essence of being Essence of being In the presence of mind Makes you feel sublime Dancing down the line Looking for some sign It must be the end of time Cause heaven's on my mind Well any minute now you'll be getting it Because everyone is divine Presence of mind And essence of being The essence of being In the presence of mind If you don't see it you gotta be blind

THE GOOD LIFE The good life is to be shared by all If only we could scale the wall That keeps some people in And other people out While the eggheads on the fence They just sit about Woe-oh-woe-oh-oh-oh yeh Hey hey hey The day ends as night begins Just like breathing out And breathing in again Do ants go to sleep at dusk Or do the lights come on at ten Does anybody really know Woe-oh-woe-oh yeh yeh Hey hey hey eh Two by two the creatures crept Slowly up the great big ark Thunder crashed and lightning flashed While the waters steamed And teemed with sharks Oh everything was cold and dark For forty nights and forty days Eh yeh yeh eh woe-oh-woe-oh Noah he looks up and he gets hit in the eye By a pie from the sky a-falling So he sticks his finger in Then he pulls it out and licks it clean But all he can say is this is appalling As he hears his mama calling Well the weather cleared and little birdies sang From the leafy branches of flowering trees Some sang high and some sang low From both ends of a musical rainbow Oh-oh-oh yeh My friends all wanna know just how the story ends I say be patient and watch the show That's what they call suspense But remember there's really no tragedy Once you've found the remedy That sweet sweet sweet melody Yay hey hey hey The good life is to be shared by all If only we could scale the wall That keeps some people out And other people in While the eggheads on the fence They just sit about Like Humpty Dumpty Like Humpty Dumpty Watch out you don't fall [1970]

I was just a schoolboy Dropping out of school Just another Portnoy Fooling with his tool Sunny days down by the stream Oh mama I was cool Rainy days were like a dream Of fishes in a pool One day the whole town found out I was almost where it's at My daddy had to pay a pound out Just to get me out of that Then he took me to the dentist Who crucified my tooth The dentist read to me his laundry list And he said, "Dear boy, it's the truth" Lie lie lie lie la lie lie lie Lie la lie la lie My mama took me to the doctor Who was really kinda pissed The doctor stuck me in his locker He must have thought I wouldn't be missed Then him and his forty nurses They done me some weird research They programmed me with holy verses And then they forced me to sing in church La la la la la la la ha ha Hallelujah hey hey ha I guess God heard my singing And she liked what she heard She sent some angels winging Just to put in a good word Now you probably won't believe it The way I got out of jail You can take my word or leave it But Jesus stood my bail Sunny days down by the stream Oh mama I was so cool Rainy days were like a dream Of little fishes in a pool Well mama was just a little sad Seeing how thin I had become She passed the message on to dad Who meditated some "Well okay son," he said, "I know exactly how you feel Maybe you should go to bed With a lovely lusty meal" One hypnotic gesture was all it took To end this story happy He got me a girl with a melting look He's a real magician man my pappy Sunny days down by the stream Oh mama mama I was cool Rainy days were like a dream A dream of fishes in a pool

It's You 06:37
In the middle of the night when half the world is sleeping I pick up my guitar & play me a song thinking about you You're the only reason that I'm living You're the one who makes my dreams come true Oh yes it's you Nobody else but you No one can do the things that you do No one but you It's you In the middle of a movie everybody's watching I'm sitting waiting patiently for the end of the show So I can go home with you You're the one who makes me You make me feel so real Oh yes you do Nobody else but you No one can do the things that you do No one but you It's you In the middle of another lifetime that sometimes seems to never end It's reassuring just to know that once in a while you can find a friend A friend like you Who makes my dreams come true Oh yes you do Only you can do the things that you do No one but you You make me feel so real No one else but you It's you

I like this cave So warm & soft & full of space I’m floating free There’s music in my ears And silver lights before my eyes I wanna stay But in my bones I know I have to go A voice is calling from somewhere Come out of your dark cave hey Come play with me (& we can) Share the beauty of this world It’s our one & only There’s so much you can be When you’re part of the magic Of this bluegreen pearl You’ve yet to see The silver stars Dancing in the night Hear the song of birds at dawn Taste the ocean spray Smell the jungle after rain But listen to me It’s not all smiles Sometimes you’ll have to Shed a tear or two But then it’s up to you To dry your eyes & see the sun The voice is gone Do I stay or do I go I just don’t know I liked this cave before But now I think I’ve changed my mind I wanna see Share the beauty of this world It’s our one & only So much you can be When you’re part of the magic Of this bluegreen pearl You’ve yet to see Words: Lida Geh Music: Antares

about

As I no longer have the energy, incentive, or inspiration to spend long hours & a whole load of money doing studio sessions, I've settled for economy & simplicity by investing in a Yeti Blue USB mic - which I plug into my laptop & record, using a basic audio platform like Audacity. I usually do it late at night when the whole village is asleep & the only occasional noise intrusion is the barking of dogs (well, the cicadas are always present).

released December 12, 2015

'Share The Beauty' was recorded in Rafique Rashid's home studio in Kuala Kubu Bharu sometime in 1992. Special thanks to Icco Elnoel who contributed some truly fine 5-string bass on five of my songs..

about

Guano Breath Malaysia

My output mostly dates back to the 1980s and has been heard by a mere handful. This isn't what I'm into now but at least I'm not too embarrassed about it.

Collaborations with others & freestyle choreographic works form an integral part of my archive.

I enjoy being the world's least ambitious musician.
