It’s not Rooooooski! It’s an abstract facsmile of Rooooooski!
Damned by a man who cannot stand up straight
Cursed by the purse strings attached to my home
You don’t want it? You’ve got to have it and I insist that you grab it!
Shin deep in purple, processed, pure grape jelly
Scorned by a wench who can’t pronounce my last name
You can’t feel it? Must be too heartless to deal with…
Knee deep in crimson, sticky, entropic, paste gold
Where is the buzz when you need it the most?
What will the bureaucrat do for Tuesday?
Now I was bitten by the dog whose bite was bigger than his bark
You don’t weep for it?
Neck high in Honolulu blue river tide
Composition © 2004 Ric Albano
Composed on June 14, 2004
Recorded starting on November 3, 2004
at Silver Spring Subterranean
Produced by Ric Albano
Engineered by Paul Smith
Mixed and Mastered in 2005
at Silver Spring Subterranean
Original Release: October 10, 2005
on Imaginary Lines I
Analysis: An odd song with an odd story and odd structure, this upbeat and fun tune with deep philosophical lyrics came together in an odd way. Like most songs on Imaginary Line I, a demo was brought to Saturation Acres where a new, professional recording was initiated. But unlike any other song, the demo version was ultimately included on the album as the studio version was determined to be too slow to capture the mood of this song.

Imaginary Lines 33 is a compilation album which is actually three albums in one. It includes the entirity of two previous releases, Imaginary Lines I in 2005 and Imaginary Lines II in 2007, plus several new and previously unreleased tracks. In all, its 33 songs have a combined running time of nearly two and a half hours.
This album came together when the project’s producer, Ric Albano, decided to abandon the originally-planned “trilogy” of albums because he did not feel there was enough quality material to make an adeguate Imaginary Lines III. Instead the focus shifted to enhancing previously released material and developing the better songs of the unreleased music.
