Mark on Lead Guitar
"Aha," Mark said, "Give in to my demands or I'll poison your water supply."
Our teacher pointed at the map and noted that Mark's country was downstream from Bev's; Mark's plan would have poisoned his own people. "Rivers don't run that way, Mark," was our teacher's wry comment.
If I remember correctly, Mark was also the group's chief songwriter, penning "Altered Logic." I still remember most of the words:
Ministries of truth
Ministries of love
Ministries of peace
Without a dove!
There is no turning back
Nowhere to hide the fact
Truth reveals to me
There is no privacy no freedom no love...
Well, some of the words, anyway. I haven't seen Mark since the early 90s; sometime in the mid-90s, I spotted a newspaper clipping noting that he'd married and was pursuing a post-graduate degree in philosophy at, I think, McMaster University.
