LYRICS:
The Long Tail
I got a long tail!
I got a long tail!
I’m a survivor in the do-it-yourself trench wars going back to old punk rock.

I’ll even show you how, when I’m not too distracted
disseminating art in 100 directions at once.
While simultaneously focused as a laser where need be.

From DC to Frisko, to Berlin,…stuck standing in line at many post offices,
every day, for decades, sending out my merch.
My art.
Music, words, movies, more.
T-shirts. Stickers. Buttons.
It’s how we live in your life just a little.

Even wrote books in line. And proofed books.
No one proofs, they all just wanna write.
Everyone in your favorite café
is writing a screenplay.

But they’re never editing a screenplay.
That’s why their work is never made.
Also, they’re waiting for permission.
We just did it.
From WJWK, to
the one-stop sheep shop in my bedroom,
to BipTunia.
To Intergalactic Prairie Studio, and Purple Monkey Studio

I got a long tail!
I got a long tail!

It’s a long luxurious tail, the twinkling little part of the
new economic charts,
the far right part of the X axis, that goes on forever.
Where all the millions of us who each sell a few, outsell the dozens who sell millions.
It’s where we live.

And now just give it away too.
I got a long tail!
I got a long tail!
It reaches to Alpha-Centauri. And to the future.
And to dino rider past.
(DynaWriter past)
Touch it, bolt in, come along for the ride.
