This song repeats the phrase “Gagabol Polka” but it's not Rock, its not Jazz, it is definitely not Polka!
What genre is it? I wish I knew. I always get stuck when I have to put down a genre for my music, and whatever genre I put feels misleading. That is why I like “indie” because it is not a genre.

The end of this track becomes another song which is my love song to life. The coda of Gagabol is about how grateful I am to exist. Life is everything, and whoever and whatever devalues life, is undermining the foundation of time, space and being itself. Life is all that has been experienced and all that will be experienced. To know and ascribe existence to anything, anywhere on any planet, in any solar system, galaxy or universe, there must be life.
Life gives us time, and a location from which to remember and perceive anything and everything. Life is the basis of all basis and the substrate of all that is, was and will be.
All we are is life!
All we have is life!


GAGABOL - from "Truth and Fun" by Eight Two

Oh fuck! I lost it again

Gagabol polka, Gagabol

Gagabol polka, pol polka
Gagabol polka, pol polka

Gagabol polka, pol polka
Gagabol polka, pol polka

Gagabol pol polka, pol polka

Gagabol polka, pol polka

All we are
All perception is

All we have
All we love
Love is life

Thank you
Thank you
Precious life
Every life

Every Day
Every moment
Nothing else compares
Time itself is life


Get high on every life
Celebrate life
