I Am The Time
(Holubeeb -at-the -Beeb)


-So, what are you going to play for us?

-Uhh..this...this one is a little song I wrote...
I think it was 2001...2002 maybe...

-Then you were living at Barcelona, right?

-Yeah, I was living...studying...tripping there...
It was a weird time, really...I thought I had powers...
I was doing all the raves, guessing if a girl's name started with "M"...
just looking into her eyes while dancing Aphex Twin.

-Oh, weird times in deed!

-Yeah, I think the acid-techno lifestyle was taking its toll...
You know? Back then my diet consisted of just XTC, Diet-Coke and Cucumbers.

-Yum!

-So, this one's called:
I am The Time : T-I-M-E


Cause I am The Time,
and I think I don't have much...

And if I am The Time...
then I don't have much of me...

I see insects eating rats,
only that and empty minds,
showing scare and bleeding sights,
and the people don't exist!

And I'm The Time,
and I think I don't have much of that...

And if I am The Time...
then I don't have much of me...

Cause I am The Time...
and I don't have much of me!

I see insects eating rats,
only that and empty minds,
showing scare and bleeding sights,
and the people don't exist!

Cause I'm The Time...
and I think I don't have much...
of that...

And if, finally,
I am The Time
then I don't have much of me...

No one here's looking tonight,
on the bleeding-cursed streets,
what my mind is looking for...
and the people don't exist!

Cause I'm The Time...
and I think I don't have much...
of that...
of that...
of thaaaaat!

And if I am The Time
then I don't have much of me...


Do you have a cucumber, dude?

released December 21, 2016
Old, very lo-fi, out-of tempo demo-idea recording from 2001/2002, completed it with acoustic guitars, fretless acoustic bass, shakers and vocals. At that time, I was listening continuously the box set "Bowie at the Beeb", that includes some interviews and John Peel sessions, so I also added a little parody- intro about that, and a reference-pun to the cocaine-milk-red pepper years of the Thin White Duke.
