BEAUTIFUL DUST (copyright 2018 Gus Stagg)

At the end of the day when the sun is sinking
Everything's on fire with desire and rust
If I acted the way of better thinking

Cuz all of this is just beautiful dust

If I learn to leave well enough alone
There's no need to make a fuss
Can I feed the hungry yearning ghost

Cuz all of this is just beautiful dust

Down here in Oblivion
There were no rungs upon the ladder
Analyzing everyone
Through the swirling eyes of the Mad Hatter

Hahaha hahaha hahaha

She wears her beauty like a weapon

That's her expertise
They take her picture

As she's stepping through the doorway
In the sunlight and the breeze

Someday she'll make that transition

Just like the rest of us

When she finds out it's all just beautiful dust

Features the infamous "Laughing Bag" sound effect in the middle portion of the song - which was a tiny battery-operated record player inside of a bag which actually played a 3-inch record!  Frank Zappa used the sound in several of his tunes (Tengo Na Minchia Tanta, Drowning Witch, Envelopes, Baby Take Your Teeth Out and others) - King Crimson also used it in Easy Money on Lark's Tongues In Aspic...just the type of human/mechanical amusing/nightmarish laughter you might expect from the Mad Hatter...
