lyrics

"Violence is the cot's night under your weight!"

"Silence is the ceaseless grinding of your children's teeth!"

"I know currents flow to better shows and brighter days."

"I know faulty gimmicks gouge and puncture under sleeves."

And soon he'll feel a shock and then he'll feel a burst in his head and a snap and a crack in his leg and a dead bird spotted in the wings will never ever sing his torch songs again.

Now when Marty shakes his fist he shakes the rafters after bad magicians take their bows and find their mothers' shoulders cried on cold.

"May I have this shoulder to cry on? Is that the Old Ship of Zion I see?"

What did you do when you knew that the Current would lead me here? What did you do when you knew every wing sees a run or tear? What did you do when you knew every audience disappears?

"Now watch as I make the audience disappear."

"There's a little bit of light coming out of you. You're giving off a bit, a little bit of light… just a watt or two."
