Philip Graham An infectious, sleepy-voiced loping song, and I love that harmonica (or is it a kazoo? A sax?) in the bridge.

lyrics

Alligators
Control your feelings
Or have trouble mating
Like all those river sharks with busted fins
who forget how to swim

Li'l tonight
I was bored by my age
Li'l tonight
I was clueless on that stage
O tonight
O tonight

Sister Alma
It's mostly mental
Remember David?
He said it's all just memory: shame and guilt and sin
Now he forgets where he lives

about

Markarians Houserville, Pennsylvania

Imagine an alien species of explorers from a galaxy some 70 million light years distant. Countless generations have lived and died on the journey to Earth. Whole histories, micro-civilizations come and gone. But at last they are here. Markarians are here. Only…somewhere along the way, rounding the Sombrero Galaxy, they forgot why they came. And how to get back.

-Felix Singer, Athens, GA
