Nirvana in a Postcard (Bad Etiquette)

“Bad Etiquette” cassette, 1992 – Hamilton, ON

John Harvey, John Battaglia


Lyrics

Nirvana in a Postcard - drawing by Harvey Dog 2020

a mountain,
falling
through
the sky,
landing
on my head

tension unbearable
I break the rubble
and see
a murky sky,
smoke-stacked
contaminated

I’m screaming for
cleanliness
a place to rest
like a postcard
heavenly – opaque

the sheen
shades
the illusion
the heaviness
the lost
nirvana

searching for
something
that
never
existed.

Notes

  • A song from the “Bad Etiquette” cassette 1992.
  • The music John wrote perfectly matches the sense of searching for a “lost nirvana” of the lyrics.
  • Mr. Grammarly and His Tone Detector feel the lyrics are very disapproving!

Recorded: August 1992
