    I read a play written today about a boy
    Who hides in attics when the sun is up
    Everyone is at work
    What will I do? Where will I go?
    Show me the way
    The truth, the anger, show me rules of thumb
    Show the way to grow old

    Love is a guide
    The endless river of the soul
    But we are mean
    The dried up riverbeds of rock and stone
    Lust is my friend
    She comes to me when I am tired

    Life is a rope, death is a myth
    Love is a fraud, it's misunderstood
    Work is a sentence, family's a drag
    This house is a trap

    I read a play written today about a girl
    She gets on perfectly with young and old
    Everybody loves her
    What would she wear? Cut off her hair?
    Wave as she slides
    Gracefully into the working week
    She hides her baggage inside

    She's got a friend
    An ugly monster that will eat your face
    She has to cry
    A heavy cat of wasted time
    She's got a friend
    A lonely monster that will prey on you

    Life is a secret, death is a myth
    Love is a fraud, it's misunderstood
    Work is a sentence, family's a drag
    This house is a trap

    Life is a secret, death is a myth
    Love is a fraud, it's misunderstood
    Work is a sentence, family's a drag
    This house is a trap

    I read a play written today about a boy
    Tied in melancholy, takes the weight
    Takes the weight of the world
    I walked alone, loving a song
    Walking the earth
    The one-eyed sister who is twenty three
    Dried and wrinkled, alone

    I'll give you a month
    To see past shadows in your secret night
    I'll give you a week
    To look Medusa in the eye
    I'll give you a month
    To notice heaven in the sight of stage

    You'll keep inside of your head
    You're sitting on the floor
    You're pushing back the tide
    So lift the mountain up
    So tie writer's witness down
    Assemble all your troops
    Regards to all these metaphors
    And suddenly she says, and suddenly she says
    And away you too, and head for higher ground
    And not the king of me
    Take a chance and play for today
    And build the sets and light the scene
    A pretty air and we're upon the screen
    And build the sets and light the scene
    We'll break when we're on the sacred screen
    The backstage of your life
    Let's fill the glass and light to share the sun
    The backstage of your life
    Let's file the tables of the ones you love
