James Clarke ~ Twiggy has a reoccurring dream regarding something she did in the 60’s

Good sense, innocence, cripplin’ mankind
Dead kings, many things I can’t define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothing to lose.

Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns
Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around.

Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah
Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah, yeah!

To divide this cockeyed world in two
Throw your pride to one side, it’s the least you can do.
Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view

Who care what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin’ to lose.

Good sense, innocence, cripplin’ mankind
Dead kings, many things I can’t define.
Occasion, persuassions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin’ to lose.

Incense and peppermints
Incense and peppermints


Incense and Peppermints by Strawberry Alarm Clock

I wasn’t going to use this song but then I noticed that the first half of the video was taken from Russ Meyer’s “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls,” surely one of the stranger movies to burst forth from the Zeitgeist of the Sixties, hence the perfect complement to “Twiggy’s Dream.”
