Jabberwock - Her Faithful Battalions


GATES OF PARADISE Rolling your eyes with the juju beads With a twisted limb and a bended knee Kamikaze chaos in the back of your head Like a prehistoric monster oozing up from the dead Screaming at the telly like a tabby on fire Screaming to be heard over jet airliners We’re coming down for a runway crash Loaded up with alcohol, weapons, and cash Register trouble on the Richter scale It’s another doomed plan that could never fail Safe inside the belly of a roving beast With the jaws of death on a gorging feast Scaring all the ladies with the bulge in your pants Like a European playboy from the south of France Running up the bill in credit card romance Like an epileptic rhino attempting to dance Blowing all your money on the roll of the dice With garage door opener for the gates of paradise c1996 by Wishnefsky Wishnefsky – vocals, electric guitars, synths, bass Dave Rodgers – drums COMMENTS This waltz is something of a circus bigtop number, though it mostly avoids the high wire and seldom strays from the elephants, clowns, and juggling monkeys. Gates is really more of a Veneer song. In Jabberwock, we never even considered playing it live. I had someone very specific in mind when I wrote this tune and he doesn't have a clue who he is. So we'll just leave it at that and call it a day, if you don't mind. Wishnefsky
