This is the shortest possible version of the first song on Last Hero of the Western World. The ideal version plays for about two days (48 hrs) and features two Turbojet engines and a choir of 1011. If you happen to be very rich and want to help with the realization of this project feel free to shoot me an email. This is not a joke.

People approached me asking if the lyrics on this one were a riddle – not a Nik Kershaw type of riddle which is not a riddle at all, albeit believed by many to be one (the problem is that I still believe that the Nik Kershaw riddle is, in fact, a riddle). Others asked me if the song contained allusions to the Cold War, their reasoning for this assumption being the image of an armed girl swimming across the Bering Sea (some reasoning I have to say). Another group of people wanted to know if this song was about the end of economic hegemony and if they should sell their [xxxxx] stocks (in trade for what, you idiots? money?). A 7-year-old was pretty sure it was about the follow-up to World of Warcraft. A citizen outraged tried to hit me in the face crying about “your sinister heritage, son, which deprived me of the last moment of placidity my ever so challenged mind was allowing me”.

My answer is yes.
