~Ever attempted a conversation with someone, a five-year-old in their lap squeezing & squeaking a balloon~that’s what it felt like in my rock ‘n roll days~guitar players & drummers pickin’ & clankin’ while I was busy trying to concentrate, to write lyrics~

~My Heaven (Etude)~

Etude means discipline (particularly in music). As a lead vocalist I came onto this valuable bit of information and used it in an attempt to get win an argument with the guys in the band. See... they come up with all this cool music and expect me to write 'on the spot' lyrics. While I'm trying to concentrate, they go on to newer and better things, scrambling my brains along the way (those that I haven't already scrambled myself). So I brought a dictionary to rehearsal and explained the concept to them, doubtful that it would do any good. I was convinced they would never learn to be patient and behave themselves, exhibit a bit of self-discipline. They turned the tables on me and this song is the result. In my humble opinion it's a great piece.

~My Heaven (Etude)~

my heaven is escape me
my heaven is escape me
my heaven is escape me, brother
my heaven is a woman
my heaven is a suckling Child
another man’s shame
another man’s glory
my heaven ‘e been gone for a while
ha ha ha
