Partially in remembrance of the Michael Jackson of my youth.

lyrics

PALM POINT (Buried Michael)

I found Kevin's Buckle. it's a patented device
I was up on Palm Point looking at the horses down below
all we knew at that point was the timing was eventful 'cause
the world was on the verge of one hell of a good show

Up on Palm Point you can see where they buried Michael
carved out of the mountain by the church of Paul Revere
And she was not his lover and we'll never have another
'Cause no patented device is gonna keep him here...

when the sun descended and our revelries were ended
we made for the horizon, headed home too soon
we will next be talking when the dead rise to go walking
in your favorite direction, backwards toward the moon

Up on Palm Point you can see where they buried Michael...

I saw officers and craftsmen face their darkest fears
when they saw the way they killed that boy in the parking lot at Sears
it sent us dancing all the way to the outskirts of LA
I remember everything just like it was yesterday...

I was just a kid, John B. Cary Elementary
when I saw that teacher fly across the room
people started screaming we were jumping off the desk chairs
listening to Michael tearing up that tune

Up on Palm Point you can see where they buried Michael...

It all came upon me like my personal black Monday
a refrigerated gurney in a cold florescent room
I can see the road before me and the ending might restore me
with a 4/4 minor chord and a reverberating boom, boom, boom

Up on Palm Point you can see where they buried Michael
carved out of the mountain near the church of Paul Revere
And she was not his lover and we'll never have another
'Cause no patented device is gonna keep him here...
