lyrics

Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what?

Red, purple, yellow, green
Translucent memories
Taking me back to the day
The day that I lost everything
Purple, green, yellow, red
What have I got in my head?
Now what? Now what?

Look all around, what do you see?
Hear what I say, are you listening?

House with a tire swing
Car for driving to the thing
I have no accent
Hey do you remember me?
I sat by Yu in history
Are you from German?

The thing I cannot get into is locked
The locked thing I can't get into is cold and dreary
I guess it's just as well it's all the same
The change will do me good
The change will do him better

Look all around, what do you see?
Hear what I say, are you listening?

Small apartment busy street
Walk to places with my feet
Talk like New Yorkers
Doing business from my pad
Nothing like I ever had
Science fiction novelist

(Jim's Tibetan singing bowl)

Da da da da da da writer's block!
I wish that I could figure out what I was thinking
Pizza, Chinese or Italian?
I wish that I could figure out what I was eating

Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what?

Book on Scientology, found it at a library
(Scientology)
Covered up by dust bunnies, is it fate or destiny?
(Is it right for me?)
KFC or Mickey D's? Taco Bell or Burger King?
(Where did I put my keys?)
Pizza Hut or Chipotleee? White Castle is now Walgreen's
(What has become of me?)

Found out all about Thetans
Does it happen now? Does it happen when?
Yu can call me Sven, I'm not from Japan
Clearly I'm from Svedish!

Scientology is fine
I think I'd rather write about a science fiction
Character who lost and found his keys
Went back in time to outer space reincarnated

Look at the balloons, now what?
Look at the balloons, what now?
Look at the balloons, now what?
Now what? Now what? Now what? Now what?

about

Ice Cream Vendors Westmont

The Ice Cream Vendors (ICV), made up of longtime pals Jon Kostal and Greg Barnett, is not just a musical duo but a mysterious life force. Those familiar with Jon and Greg know that boy meets girl lyrics and verse/verse/chorus clichés are simply not in their genetic makeup. Defying classification, ICV examines its subjects through a sometimes-surreal lens, but always with fondness and curiosity. ... more
