The Scenic Route lyrics

So Jeff called me and asked me to send him the track titles to "The Scenic Route". I being a good friend checked for them when I got home. I had them in many places but not really in any good copy and paste settings. So I knew that at one point I had started writing out all the lyrics for the album, I figured I could just send him that file with the lyrics cut-out.

Well I of course looked at the file and decided, heck there's only 5 or 6 songs left to do, I'll finish it and send him the whole thing lyrics and all. Well it's now 5 or 6 hours later. I have 18 different notebooks and folders open all over the place, headphones, and notes galore lying around. I have picture programs open with scans of notes, a media player filled with songs, and Audacity pushing the boundaries of my computer.

All this to finish writing out the lyrics to the last 5 or 6 songs. Well at least I finished (two and half years after the album came out). And because he caused me so much unintentional insanity, I'm not even going to send it to Jeff. I'm going to post it here and force him and the rest of you to behold these words of wisdom and truth. Enjoy



Buddha All-Stars
The Scenic Route


1-On Your Mark

2-Land Of Milk & Honey

words & vocals-rob
mellotron-jeff
guitar, background vocals-mick

Well I was born in the land of milk & honey
But now I’m left to my own devices
I gotta work for my food
I got to earn a living
And I don’t like the choices left to me

Baby can’t you see
I was born in the land of milk & honey, honey

But now I have to earn my keep, my keep
I got to work, I got to work for a living, for a living that I
That I was amazed at how bad it could be


3-Magic Cake

words & vocals-mick
guitar, background vocals-scott

You know life only sucks so long
And sometimes it’s like
You wanna grasp every minute, every second, every fucking dollar of it man
And just fucking spend it right there and then
You just wanna fucking go to the edge and spit man
Fucking pull out your dick and start pissing of that fucking edge into oblivion
It’s called Pissing Into Oblivion man
It’s just like doing that
It’s just like fucking baking a cake-Mick

Magic Cake
OoooOoooOooo Magic Cake-Scott


4-Pissing Into Oblivion

guitar, background vocal-scott
keys-jeff
bass-rob

Pissing Into Oblivion

To the edge my friend, to the edge
Look on down face the clown at the edge
I know your so high, you are so high
But I also know, that it’s hell below
That your looking down upon

Face the black
Just like Homer faced 3-D
Just like Oprah was in the...face

All the decades that you change
All the holiday gifts
All the blessing that you receive
All the sandwiches you ate
All the movies your afraid

Conversation has run dry
Teachers fucking before your eyes

All the war that’s in your head
All the bloodshed in your bed
All the movies that you slept

Shirley Temple was not dead

All the words that you have said
All the thoughts thats in your head
All the pleasant toys you had
All the time ejaculations bad
All the gunshots in your streets
All the time the dogs in heat
All the hotdogs that you ate
All the kiddies you walk down the beach
All the anger in your fists
All the hands that eye your...aaaaahhhhh


Fucking I don’t know what were doing here-Mick


5-Driving On A Summer Night

words & vocals, backwards guitar-scott
drums, guitar-mick
moog-jeff

Legs and things I look for
Remind me that I’m not old
I watch the summer pass when the wild grass should be mowed
Spotlights in the sky attack the night
Cracked roads lead to trouble don’t be tricked

Driving On A Summer Night
Driving On A Summer Night
Driving On A Summer Night
Driving On A Summer Night

Now you’ve got to run
Now you’ve got to hide

I am sorry that you don’t see what I see
And you don’t believe what I believe
I’ve had enough of your jokes and jests
And all the comments about who’s the best
Today it comes to an end, were through
And I decided I don’t want to be with you


I’m new and your old
I’m hot and your cold
I’m water and your oil
We just don’t mix
And I’ve had enough of this

Get The Fuck Outta Here!!!

And mountains to climb

Walking down, a dirty road
Passing by every living soul
I can’t fuck around
I have to get somewhere
So don’t talk to me
I don’t really care

Flying down, to Arkansas
Passing by everyone I saw
I didn’t talk to them
I hate their guts
And if they talk to me
I’ll kick em’ in the nuts

Driving down
Driving down

A dusty street
Passing by
Everyone I meet

I was walking down the street yesterday
Just minding my own dam business
When out the sky something hit me on the head
“Ow dammit!!!” I cried
And I looked around and what did I see
It was Sammy Davis’s Glass Eyeball laying on the floor
It had just fallen out of the sky
And the dam thing hit me on the head
How the hell could’ve that happened

So I went down to Sammy’s house
I said say Sammy your quite a louse
Sammy said boy give me my eyeball back
And come to think of it he looked real funny
With one eyeball, I had the other one in my hand you see

This isn’t going real well
But I think I’ll try

They call him Johnny Gumball

But first, Cornish hens dancing around the pumpernickel thong
Then round and round and round the peppermint poles
Gathered around the guests are moose and squirrel in the espionage game
Around the East German wall that kept the nasty stuff on the other side
Keep them nasty ones round the other side


Don’t go picking, on the old cripple walrus
His big old walrus teeth, will still cripple you
Cause he’s been years, without the circus
Way back since the circus let him down

Don’t go picking, on the old cripple walrus
His big old walrus teeth, he’ll cripple you
Cause he’s been years, without the circus
Way back since the circus let him down

You don’t need to tease, the old cripple walrus
Plenty other fights to pick, without picking on him
Just keep your eyes down, when you walk past him
The look in his eyes is the end of the day

He’s been years, without the circus
Way back since the circus let him down
He’s been years, without the circus
Way back since the circus let him down
He’s been years, without the circus
Way back since the circus let him down

You don’t need to tease, the old cripple walrus
Plenty other fights to pick, without picking on him
He’s been years, without the circus

The Dark Days Of Solomon Brown

It was a soft quiet summer landscape
As lovely as dream, and as lonesome as a Sunday
But then came Solomon Brown

Men fear him for he has the storms and the lightning
And all of the devils that be in hell at his beck and call
And then he said Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
I shall smother the whole world into the death blackness of midnight
I shall blot out the sun and it shall never shine again
Fruits of the earth shall rot from the lack of light and warmth
And the people of earth shall famine and die to the last man


It’s beautiful, the pathos-Jeff

End Of An Era

I've been meaning to do this for weeks, but sometimes you put off dealing with the passing of an old friend. As of Oct. 26, 2009 the main Tonto and Buddha website, the Phantasmagoric one on Geocities, will cease to exist. I suppose I could pay the nominal fee to keep it alive, but why bother when this and many other sites are still free. Still when the end comes it will be a sad day for me, it was my first website, the bands first website, and has been up and running for almost ten years. It hosted band member surveys, band newsletters, the first 7 stories of the aborted Drowning Into Darkness book, song reviews from garageband, album info, pics, links to the many Buddha/Tonto/Archer websites, and much much more.

So I have posted the album list and comments from the site here directly below this post. I have also update the links on this page and added some of the pics from the vault.

As for anything new who knows someday maybe.

RIP Phantasmagoric Website
I love you and will miss you
