Knee Deep In The Swamp of the Nebulous

This song is also on the ‘Something Foul’ website.  The lyrics are gibberish.  The music inspiration is from a song from 1965 by Ronald Thielman, entitled: Chelsea Suite.  My High School Concert Band recorded the song in 1968.  (I played Coronet on the tune.)  I re-worked parts of it and came up with the music for this song.  The lyrics happened by chance.  I played/recorded all the instruments, did the final mix, etc…  Paul Woodsong.

Knee Deep in the swamp of the nebulous- (Paul Woodsong)

Mostly Cloudy, & patchy fog.

Chance of rain, all day long.

Into the night, it will be.

Mainly raining. Time for tea.


Time for whatever, life requires.

Try to fulfill, Our mind’s desire.

our body’s ocean, of human need.

A secret potion, say the creed:

Knee Deep, in the swamp, of the nebulous.

every step taken, will be dangerous.

Watch, as you gaze, upon the precipice.

life, is on the line”, make your exodus.

life is illusive, what’s to gain?

What is lost, causes pain.

What’s needed, try to find.

Escape from, A shattered mind.

way back where, we came from.

follow the path, of bread crumbs.


back home, the old humdrum.

repeat Chorus


Knee Deep, in the swamp of the nebulous
