AKA "Heart Owl Taco." Is the texting couple exchanging utter nonsense or the secrets of the universe? Unlock the mystery of the Eye in the Pyramid...


It was a Zoom date romancing, to learn shuffle dancing
The best choice online at the YMCA
She wore her best kicks, to show that she’s able
Buzzkill in class made them bow heads to pray.

Afterwards…he couldn’t find the words
So he texted, “Heart owl taco, a peacock and rainbow
A ghost, a panda, Dominican flag
Mini Taj Mahal, a guy on a surfboard
ROFLMAO, LOL, question hashtag.”

That innuendo can go out the window
Forget your ego and gimme some id
Jung’s so much junger time for plunder/thunder
I’ll be the eye in your pyramid
I am the Eye in the Pyramid

Heart owl taco, a peacock and rainbow
Why must you be such a cryptic kid?
A fuzzy photo, my manifesto
I’ll be the eye in your pyramid
I am the Eye in the Pyramid


released April 16, 2021
Featuring Gala Rae (vocals). With Arthur Winer (vocals, guitars, bass, synths, violins), Lemony Baudelaire (vocals), and Jeremy Conrad (drums).

Written, produced, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Winer. Artwork by Josh Neufeld.

Thanks to Dan Long for the use of Headwest Studio. Thanks also to Evren Göknar who mastered an earlier version of this that I didn't use because I had to make changes to the main mix. But trust me: Evren's version was great!

Now in LA, MacArthur is back with a new band. Check out 2014’s THE FALL GUY for the New York/Los Angeles transition-era tunes.
