The fifth chapter of The BLOT songbook is
"Twenty-Five Sticks Makes a Chair. Would You Like Me To Break It Over Your Ribs?"
by TIM FAGAN and MOSHE ROZENBERG (music) and JEANNIE PHAN (illustration)

*******************************************

Chapter Five brings The Blot into a nearly perfect darkness. No longer on the brink, our story has passed fully into The Wasteland.

Though we are moving, our path is chaotic, confusing, and the way is altogether unclear. The Blot twists and turns, stumbling over the jumbled wrecks of this lost world; a dust storm of dead endeavours. The calm and self-assuredness gained in previous chapters is under threat as The Blot encounters multitudes of disparate thoughts, attempting all the while to make sense of the puzzle pieces: fragments of once-useful ideas, broken up and cut loose from reason; neither ghosts, nor echoes.

And of the seemingly hopeful turn just before the close of the song, "You gotta / Make it or break it / And feel it all the time / And don’t ya lose your mind," we can as easily surmise irony or even insanity as we can infer that The Blot has passed through this ordeal without completely embodying the gloom it has witnessed. Only the next chapter will tell. Stay tuned.

"Twenty-Five Sticks Makes a Chair. Would You Like Me To Break It Over Your Ribs?" was written and produced by Tim Fagan (of Ratail, Induced Labour, and Lice), and Moshe Rozenberg (of DD/MM/YYYY and Absolutely Free), and drawn by Jeannie Phan (www.jeanniephan.com).

Lyrics ::

Hello?

Ok Uh Hmm, It’s Ok, Uh?
Fuck! Sorry about that, well
now get the cello dinner before the funk is gonna go. Is it? It’s one fucking day!
*clears throat*
It’s Ok, Uh?
Fuck! Sorry about that, well
now get the cello dinner before the funk is gonna go. Is it? It’s one fucking day!

Would you just let me…?!
I’m not an expert, but you’ve just gotta stop saying “uhm”.

* Ratio = 1 Exhale : 2 Inhale

Ok Uh Hmm, It’s Ok, Uh?
Fuck! Sorry about that, well
now get the cello dinner before the funk is gonna go. Is it? It’s one fucking day!
*clears throat*
It’s Ok, Uh?
Fuck! Sorry about that, well
now get the cello dinner before the funk is gonna go. Is it? It’s one fucking day!

Would you just let me…?!
I’m not an expert, but you’ve just gotta stop saying “uhm”.

* Ratio = 1 Exhale : 2 Inhale

[Hey Tommy, I’m just gonna ride the rainbow on the bike, man! C’mon! Yah!]

Hey now! Hey now!
Hey ooh! Hey ooh!
Rainbow Scinerio
Hey ooh! Hey ooh!

[Ha Ha Ha! Wiggity woo, watch out for the ditch man you’ll break your collar bone, yeah man!]

Rainbow Scinerio (*off & into the distance)

[Ha Ha Ha! Ya man! Rahayhoo *hiccup]

One lyfe 2 live
You gotta
Make it or break it
And feel it all the time
And don’t ya lose your mind…
