People fly people flee
people clam and say "it wasn't me"
people fish people beef
people arm to teeth
yes, you've got people on the tube
walking on the moon
people at the bottom of the sea
people in tombs
people in igloos
even a tribe of pygmies

people are the main spring
turning the world around
people, they're the main spring
spinning this world upside down

people sun people toast
people tire shile other people smoke
people bowl people rock
people pay to see two people box

watch me face me
dress me baby me
phone me wire me
house me bug me fire me

people are the main spring
spinning the world around
people, they're the main spring
turning this world inside out

RP is getting me interested in King Crimson.
Sorry to say this sucks. I loved their PROG period. This is some sort of failed crossover attempt. The Red Hot King Crimson Chili Peppers anyone? I thought so.
Yes we do !

Tribute, to my ears, to Beatles "She's So Heavy"

Yeah, at first I thought it was Cy from The Fixx!

Fripp and King Crimson are about to take their farewell tour. To my ears this track comes off like a mash up of Mahavishnu Orchestra and Zappa's Mothers of Invention. Challenging and cerebral music, not party entertainment or happy driving sounds.

VERY promising.....!

Speaking to Uncut, Fripp said: "King Crimson is returning to active service. We are on-call to be ready for a live performance on September 1, 2014. Seven members. Four English, three American. Three drummers. It’s a different configuration of King Crimson than before. Some are familiar names, maybe more than others."

This line-up - the 8th in the band's history - will be Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Mel Collins and Jakko Jakszyk.

Be interesting to see how Jakko handles the vocals and second guitar duties.

Also be interesting to see the set list that they come up with. 
VERY promising.....!

Right! To be fair, though, I believe that there are other KC tracks in the RP's playlist (have to look it up though) but this is certainly a fine song...
Looking forward to the latest KC incarnation.

No Adrian Belew tho. 
FINALLY......!  Some new KC (on RP)!  A fine choice.
