Track Name: ABSE AND CO - VALEDICTION
“In this exile called old age
I live between nostalgia and rage.
This is the land of fools and fear.
Thanks be. I’m lucky to be here.”
Track Name: ABSE AND CO - THE DOCTOR
I was at the doctors again
I told him
'..and Ive got no purchase in my thumbs..my milk is pink..david bowie is dead and that dolphin tatoo on his calf was cremated with him...
I'm bald....with big boobs'
The doctor asked me
'I want an antidepressent strong enough so that i can deal with all these wankers in my life

(dOCTOR) : 'What IS it you want exactly'?

I...I want to die in the cinema
so when the end credits roll and the lights come on
they put my skinny, trashed body in the rubbish
with all the empty popcorn cartons
and the half drunk pepsis'
The doctor looks out of the window and says
...
'I cannot help you. But I am convinced. If you keep looking you will find a Doctor who will be able to diagnose you as truly, terminally ill'.
