The text of “Jump Time”:

“We are at that incredible place in consciousness history, Jump Time. We’re living in a time in which we are on the verge of having a mix’n’match, a sharing of the riches of the genius of what is valued and developed in other cultures. That is why we run; that is why we try to exceed ourselves; that is why we yearn, pray, keep on searching, searching, searching - the great hunger that consumes us. We are in Jump Time.

We must assume our existence as broadly as we in any way can. Everything, even the unheard-of, must be possible in it. This is at bottom the only courage that is demanded of us, to have courage for the most strange, the most inexplicable. And part of our problem in modern times is our story and our dream is not big enough, large enough, deep enough, true enough.

All this... is for habitation by the god.”

Lyrics (by Linton Kwesi Johnson):

“Welcome, nocturnal friends. I name you beacons of hope.
Tonight fear fades to oblivion as you guide us beyond the stars to a new horizon.
Tomorrow, a stranger will enter my hut, my cave, my cool cavern of gloom.
I will give him bread - he will bring good news from afar.
I will give him water - he will bring a gift of light.”

Jane Siberry: voice
Morgan Fisher: keyboard, sampler, programming
Composed by: Jane Siberry (words) Morgan Fisher (music)
Published by: (words) Wing-It Music, SOCAN (music) © Morgan Fisher 1998
Jane recorded by Morgan Fisher over the telephone from Sheeba Records to Tokyo, Mar 1998
Edited and mixed by Morgan Fisher, The Handmade Studio, Tokyo, Apr 1998
Full version of this poem is in Jane’s book “Swan” (1998, available exclusively from Sheeba)




“This is the narrow bridge
And you will stand there
Peering at the unraveling of a dark line across a chasm
And you will not philosophise, decide, weigh
You will simply put your head down and start moving
Feeling your way inch by inch, unguided by voices
Using only the sound of your own sound reflected
Feeling the rope of the narrow bridge
This is your protection
As you move towards the end of the millennium

Every moment spent bent over work
Not cutting corners, doing things with care
Is protection
Is the bridge to carry you through the darkness
For to do something with care
Is the closest thing to the feeling of love that can be found
It is all I know
This is protection
This is the narrow bridge

And the hand reaches out for the drink, the drug
And it grabs a claw instead
And you protest
And you start to clean
And you clean the corners like they’ve never been cleaned before
And you weep as you clean, but you keep on going
And in this tiny gesture of respect
The protection is found
And the cape of grace
Moves softly down about the shoulders
Throwing a safety line out to love.”

"If we compare… the music of all the religions, we can see that music plays a great role, a great part, in so to say "religious service"; but after the work of Georgivanich, we can understand it more, we can understand it better, that music helps to concentrate oneself, to bring oneself to an inner state when we can assume the greatest possible emanations."

“Behold my vision if you will, the sirens echo still
The fading town dissolves in Mother Nature's gown and
Streams of life run to the sea, they'll lose us in the trees
We've left the streets you see
I dream of these days to come
When wise words have replaced all the tears, fears and guns
And the world will come together as one.”

“They came from every planet
They came from beneath the seas
There was no point in asking them

we'll all be off the hook
yeah we'll all be off the hook.”

“Sometimes you can fix something by just being a prick
Set things into motion
Sometimes you can fix something by just screaming, "Shaddap!"
Vegetarians are boring
Sometimes - something! Plan! Organise!
A little gentle romancing (This has not been a good year to ... machinery)
Sometimes you can fix something with coffee, and cigarettes
That'll get your juices flowing
Sometimes you can fix something by traveling in time
Embrace the new Millennium
Sometimes you can fix something by traveling real far in time
Make a wire recording
Sometimes you can fix something by traveling really far in time
Happy 1900 everybody - have a nice century!”

“Julie Fry has spent the day sick in bed.
She’s bored with trying to play Monopoly on her own.
Now she discovers how perfectly Monopoly money fits onto the back of a Scotties box.
She wonders how many other paper products would fit onto the back of a Scotties box.
The pages in her exercise book?
But folded in half?
Yes, they probably would.
Most paper in fact, folded in halves, quarters or thirds, would fit onto the back of a Scotties box.
We leave Julie now as her moment passes.
There are one million moments in your neighbourhood.
Each has a fragile presence which fades almost as it forms...”
