the euphemism for getting a shag in the line
"i'm in a hurry to get my collar straight"
is a new one on me. does anyone here use/hear this expression down their way?

is it's origin anything to do with "getting your collar felt" (being arrested), in that -presumably- such an action would leave you with a bent collar, and the first thing one would want to do on gaining freedom would to get it straight (get a shag)?

I thought the line meant getting dressed and out of there quick, similar to love is always over in the morning from TOL.

Funny one, irrespective of what's printed in the Vision Thing reissue (and elsewhere), I've always heard it as "get my Karma straight"...

I always thought it was "get my karma straight" too, continuing te references to hippie chicks and all that. Haven't seen the reissues as they have not come out down here ( or they are just not stocked not sure which)

Have just listened to it again and am more convinced that ever it is "karma" it makes much more sense to me.

Now that we're at it, I am also sure Von sings 'Our Destination To The Bar' and ' Some gay, some gay dumb Indian'... Mr. Green

its karma! do the lyrics say something other than that? if so, they're lying Laughing

and its 'give me head / run your fingers through my hair' (apart from the instance when he changes it around)

these days 'give me hair' would be more appropriate anyway Wink

cheers boss! We are not worthy!

so there's nothing wrong with my hearing after all these years of never wearing earplugs! i'm impressed.

these days i would agree with you boss, but don't rub it in. Wink Laughing

Don't forget that they printed "VISIOIN THING" at first so a mistake in the lyrics is not beyond the realms. (He does sing "karma".)

Took me some time, but now it's clear ... Laughing ...

This is Von's final resumee on the personality of Wayne ... Mr. Green Mr. Green Mr. Green ...

which I'd totally subscribed on the first listen of God's Own Medicine decades ago. Just never came to the idea to draw that line ... Laughing ...

Why fight for the Sisters' songs or their causes; for better or for worse?!?


The point is here, that he sounds already disillusioned, and she is going to be disillusioned; so what's good about that!? He even didn't bother much with music, seems to me, like he wanted to underline that point of disillusionment.


"She" ? I don't think it's necessarily a she on the other side, especially given recent revelations on Christian churches and their approach towards kids worldwide ... Wink ...

Anyway, to me the song is all about luring someone into abuse ... and yes, underlined with appropriate music and singing ... Laughing ...
