In 1995 I tried to write something akin to a “musical” called “House of Curiosities.” I wrote all of the tunes and assembled them on an album in 1995 by that name. This tune is the grand finale piece.

The project was not among my more successful ventures but it did bring forth a few good songs that otherwise would not have been. The “story” for the project was shaky at best but I’m glad I tried it.

Be safe. 

I do have outdoor gigs on the schedule in the next few months. See reynold.com or my Facebook events for details.

“Harsh Reality”

(Reynold D. Philipsek)

When you really stop and think about it
this is a pretty scary place,
You are dropped into existence from some unknown outer space
And slapped into animation
(That’ll put a smile upon your face)
Yes, it’s a harsh, harsh place

So you scramble to get the gist of it and learn the vague unwritten rules
and negotiate the distance between the “real threats” and “utter fools”
and beat back the persistence of the phantoms, ghosts, and ghouls
Yes, it’s a harsh, harsh place
