My Catapult Named Professor Stain
Sends Dogs Sailing Towards Certain Death
The symphony of 'eye'. Oh, what a drag. This song ties together
various unspoken philosophical view points regarding death and dying.
The lyrics are often misunderstood as 'the symphony of I' but in
actuality the words are 'the symphony of eye'. Everyone knows that
there are two eyes in I, unless one or more of your eyes have met an
untimely demise whilst leaving the rest of your I intact. The slide
whistle in the song may seem odd and out of place, but the listener
should know that this musical instrument is symbolic of the eye looking
up to the sky. Looking upwards to the heavens in search of hope, or as
Rikki Rockett would say, 'something to believe in'. Shortly after this
song was recorded all band members revealed to the public that they had
contracted the HIV AIDs virus. They were all dead by the end of the
following month. And yet, long after their death, the symphony of this
lovely (and mercifully short) song persists for all who encounter it.
