Theater Production Blues

lyrics

This theater production sets my head in a whirl
Like an oyster who can’t understand her pearl

The gun on the mantle - so creative! - makes a big bang - what a rage!
The effect obscures the motives of anyone on the stage

She’s learning to grow thinner, he’s learning to stand up straight
She disconnects the phone while he carries an empty plate

The emperor contrives to tell all the people how to swim
They liberate themselves as they each grows a set of fins

Amphibian locomotion replaces gas and electricity
Still the tadpoles think they’re no more than what they see

In the blue light red hemp replaces green cotton as Black Friday comes and goes
In an office over the ocean fashion designers pull the petals from a rose

She wastes away to nothing and he never takes a rest
Electronic alters proclaim that they are blessed

When the spotlight grows dimmer and the curtain’s drawing closed
The emperor still ain’t wearing any clothes

This theater production sets my head in a whirl
Like an oyster who can’t understand her pearl
