The Lyrics

A short and pensive parody...
My pensive smile hides my will
While I perch and look thin skinned.
Everyday is borrowed sound
Bruised as one upon silent sound
As, I profound, with my head bowed
Bemuse me with their raging sounds
And their love's neglectfulness surrounds.
So, frankly, I will be the talk of the town
I reassess who wears the frown
And who will wear the smiles and laughter.

Profound and well-done, Pat. 5's. I got your PM --- I could not find a sample of "Reflective Smile" when I went searching for one.

To anyone who doesn't know --- "Reflective Smile" is a spoken poem that leads-in to "Veteran Cosmic Rocker" on The Moody Blues' album "Long Distance Voyager".

Thanks, Johnny. I thought it might be one of their spoken parts.

Johnny,I found a copy of Long Distance Voyager, but had to order it....they only had about 4 stinkin' CDs here. And not even good ones.

Glad you found it, Pat. Long Distance Voyager is a pretty good album. It's the first Moody Blues album released after Mike Pinder (their Mellotron keyboard-wizard) left the band.....they got Patrick Moraz (formerly of "Yes") to play keyboards after Mike left.
