My Little Lady Gets Behind


On My Mama Said The Time Would Come

150) Life's Been Good by The Eagles—
I have a mansion
Forget the price
Ain't never been there
They tell me it's nice

I live in hotels
Tear out the walls
I have accountants
Pay for it all

They say I'm crazy but I have a good time
I'm just looking for clues
at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far

My Maserati
Does one eighty-five
I lost my license
Now I don't drive

I have a limo
Ride in the back
I lock the doors
In case I'm attacked

I'm making records
My fans they can't wait
They write me letters
Tell me I'm great
So I got me an office
Gold records on the wall
ust leave a message
Maybe I'll call

Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through
(Everybody sing) I'm cool (He's cool)
I can't complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far

I go to parties
Sometimes until four
It's hard to leave
When you can't find the door

It's tough to handle
This fortune and fame
Everybody's so different
I haven't changed

They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time
(Everybody sing) Oh yeah (Oh yeah)
I keep on going guess I'll never know why
Life's been good to me so far baby,
inside the Sad Cafe.

180) 85th word of the King James Version of the Bible's Old Testament Genesis = morning
1: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
    And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3: And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4: And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5: And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
    And the evening and the morning were the first day.
    — Genesis I.1-5 (translated 1611)
181) In the 85th Psalm, the prophet longs for the communion of the sanctuary:
6. Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7. Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
8. I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people,
    and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
9. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11. Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12. Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13. Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
Psalms 85.6-13 (1048 BC),
182) 85th Book of Enoch describes the Second Dream-Vision of Enoch told to Methuselah:
1. And after this I saw another dream, and I will show the whole dream to thee, my son.
2. And Enoch lifted up (his voice) and spake to his son Methuselah: 'To thee, my son,
    will I speak: hear my words— incline thine ear to the dream-vision of thy father.
3. Before I took thy mother Edna, I saw in a vision on my bed, and behold a bull came
    forth from the earth, and that bull was white; and after it came forth a heifer, and
    along with this (latter) came forth two bulls, one of them black and the other red.
4. And that black bull gored the red one and pursued him over the earth,
    and thereupon I could no longer see that red bull.
5. But that black bull grew and that heifer went with him, and I saw that
    many oxen proceeded from him which resembled and followed him.
6. And that cow, that first one, went from the presence of that first bull
    in order to seek that red one, but found him not, and lamented
    with a great lamentation over him and sought him.
7. And I looked till that first bull came to her and quieted her,
    and from that time onward she cried no more.
8. And after that she bore another white bull, and after him she bore many bulls and black cows.
9. And I saw in my sleep that white bull likewise grow and become a great white bull,
    and from Him proceeded many white bulls, and they resembled him. And they began
    to beget many white bulls, which resembled them, one following the other, (even) many.

183) 85th Saying of Gospel of Thomas:
Jesus said, "Adam came from great power and great wealth,
but he was not worthy of you. For had he been worthy,
he would not have tasted death."

Gospel of Thomas Saying #85 (114 sayings of Jesus, circa 150 A.D.)
(trans. Marvin Meyer, 1992; adapted by Elaine Pagels, Beyond Belief, p. 238)
184) Chapter 85 of Pistis Sophia (circa 150 A.D.):
It came to pass then, when Jesus had finished speaking these words unto his disciples,
that Mary Magdalene started forward and said: "My Lord, be not wroth with me
if I question thee, because we question thee concerning all with precision."
And Jesus answered and said unto Mary: "Question concerning what thou desires
to question, and I will reveal it unto thee in openness without similitude,
and all concerning which thou questions, I will say unto thee with precision
and certainty. I will perfect you in all power and all fulnesses, from the
interior of the interiors to the exterior of the exteriors, from that Ineffable
to the darkness of darknesses, so that ye shall be called 'the fulnesses perfected
in all gnosis.' Now, therefore, Mary, question concerning what thou may question,
and I will reveal it to thee with great joy and great exultation."
    Mary again questions Jesus. It came to pass then, when Mary had heard the Saviour
say these words, that she rejoiced in exceedingly great joy and exulted, and said:
"My Lord, will then the men of the world who have received the mysteries of the Light,
be superior to the emanations of the Treasury in thy kingdom? For I have heard thee say:
If I lead you into the region of those who have received the mysteries of the Light,
then will the region of the emanations of the Light-land count for you as a speck
of dust because of the great distance in which it is distant from it, and because
of the great light in which it is,'— that is the Light-land is the Treasury,
the region of the emanations,— will therefore then, my Lord, the men who have
received the mysteries, be superior to the Light-land and superior to those
emanations in the kingdom of the Light?"
Pistis Sophia, Chapter 85
(Translated by Violet MacDermott, Edited by Carl Schmidt,
Nag Hammadi Studies, IX: Pistis Sophia, E. J. Brill, Leiden, 1978, pp. 190-193)
185) In Chapter 85 of The Aquarian Gospel, John, the harbinger, censures Herod for his wickedness.
Herod sends him to prison in Machaerus. Jesus tells why God permitted the imprisonment of John.
  3. The city of Tiberius, upon the shores of Galilee, was Herod's home.
  8. The followers of John were warned to speak not of the trial and imprisonment of John.
10. They could not talk about this better life that Herod called the Heresy of John.
11. When it was known that John had been imprisoned by the tetrarch court,
      the friends of Jesus thought it best that he should not remain in Galilee.
12. But Jesus said, I have no need of fear; my time has not yet come;
      no man can stay me till my work is done.
13. And when they asked why God permitted Herod to imprison John, he said,
14. Behold yon stalk of grain to perfectness, it is of no more worth;
      it falls, becoming part of earth again from which it came.
15. John is a stalk of golden wheat; he brought unto maturity the richest grain
      of all the earth; his work is done.
16. If he had said another word it might have marred the symmetry of what is now a noble life.
17. And when my work is done the rulers will do unto me what they have done to John, and more.
18. All these events are part of God's own plan. The innocent will suffer while the wicked
      are in power; but woe to them who cause the suffering of the innocents.
The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus the Christ, Chapter 85
