The Lyrics

MIDI . (scroll down to Epitaph3)AMAZON SAMPLE (baro·graph = International Scientific Vocabulary a recording barometer) (As usual : D, the parody means whatever you want it to mean)
The fall on trusty graph does show,
A cracking it does deem.
It's not an instrument of death,
But no right can be seen.
And every one to scorn imparts,
By anxiousness they fear.
The wish is just the wish for peace,
But no work is their theme.

Seclusion can be a barograph,
As I bawl but take the broken path.
If you take that you can't sit down and laugh.
It's clear, to my sorrow no one's trying.
It's clear, to my sorrow no one's trying.
It's clear, to my sorrow no one's trying.

instrumental

Unseen I work on and I wait,
Those needs of mine were known.
Not slaughtered by the deeds of foes,
I know and think they own.
Knife's edge is a deadly trend,
'Cause knife holds all the rules.
Their state is so maligned to me,
They think they have a clue.

Long instrumental

The fall on trusty graph does show,
A mending it does deem.
It's not an instrument of death,
And some light can be seen.
And every one to scorn imparts,
No anxiousness they fear.
The wish is just the wish for peace,
And this work is their theme.

Seclusion can be a barograph,
As I bawl but take the broken path.
If you take that you can't sit down and laugh.
And it's clear, no more sorrow, there's trying.
And it's clear, no more sorrow, there's trying.
And it's clear, no more sorrow, there's trying.

Interesting and poetic

I suspect King Crimson would like your version better than theirs. :-)

Those of us who swim in warm waters fear the fall of the barograph (very low pressure = hurricanes).... As AFW said and TT has said before, you're a poet. Wish I K more of your OSs. 555

Thanks AFW, Merry (quite a compliment!) and Tommy...if you can't stand midis or something, read them as poetry. I've met some of TT's kin while they were slowly escaping from a hurricane in Fla.

I haven't heard much King Crimson music before, but you do have some wicked poetry running around in your coconut. Good Job Adagio. 555
