Intermission With Moon Cycles

This song is by Colin Masson and appears on the album The Southern Cross (2011).

Once upon a time
In the days before
The dawning of the digital age
Music was recorded onto a fragile Piece of plastic
Known as a long playing record
In-spite of it's name
It's storage capacity was distinctly limited
And the user would have to turn over the record
To listen to the second half
This had a profound effect on artists of the time
Whole edifices of the imagination were constructed around the fact
That an album must have two sides
Such is the case here
Therefore for those of you who do not remember a time
Before the coming of the iPod and the iPad
This is side two
I repeat
This is side two
