CRAZY MANDY

CRAZY MANDY
If you have flown too far from the nest
If they got you under sedation
Come rest in here, come greet your fears
Come meet some human relation
And we shall wait to say the words
That cool you like a breeze
Becoming part of the clothes that you wear
Becoming whole,  it’s easy

It’s all in the plan, crazy Mandy
It’s all as it should be
It’s all in the winds of time my love
And it weighs out like sand

Add two and two, it’s all you need do
You already have done that
No sign on the line, everything’s fine
Everyone’s here from the start
And to take a bet and jape and jest
Is all you might have done
This matters not because what you have got
Is very much more than that

It’s all in the plan, crazy Mandy
It’s all as it should be
It’s all in the winds of time my love
And it weighs out like sand

Silently she has to wait
In the long halls of stone
Red drops the blood
From her fingers to the floor
Will she know?
Will her children grow?
Will she hear?
Is she near?
Watch her go
Mindfire glow
She is seeking

Mandy a bird of some sort she soared
High above civilization
And looking down she gulped and frowned
Saying this is not my inclination
To bank and shop the streets and follow
All these rules I see
Something else must I do
Or am I really being me?

It’s all in the plan, crazy Mandy
It’s all as it should be
It’s all in the winds of time my love
And it weighs out like sand

La la la la…

Fun Facts:
* Crazy Mandy is in the key of D minor.
* It was originally performed by Laughing Sun in 1985.
* When this was recorded it was still a new song for Alchemeon.
* Pok had the idea for this song after meeting one of George’s girlfriends, whose name was not actually Mandy.
* A new development in the Alchemeon version was that Jim and Iggy made the Boosa Nova section towards the end of the song much more Bossa Nova-ish.
