Mark Young - Meanwhile, at Altamont

A woman weeps.
         focus on the audience!
Another woman bares her breasts.
         focus on the audience!
There's a famous band playing.
         focus on the audience!
It's basically a backing tape.
         focus on the audience!
It was recorded elsewhere.
         focus on the audience!
The lead singer thinks it's a Hindu festival.
         focus on the audience!
He dresses accordingly.  
         focus on the audience!
A fight erupts in the front of the crowd
         focus on the audience!
at the foot of the stage.
         focus on the audience!
Members of the California Hells Angels
         focus on the audience!
bring their brand of law & order
         focus on the audience!
to the gathering. The band is quiet.
         focus on the audience!
A man in a lime-green suit pulls a gun.
         focus on the audience!
A Hells Angel stabs him to death.
         focus on the audience!
You couldn't see anything, it was
         focus on the audience!
just another scuffle, says the singer.
         focus on the audience!
