Coming Down Fast

 

Another morning left alone with the champ

This time no warning had come from the camp

Wind talkers lost their tongues to prevent another hack

Smoke signals wafted but the code could not be cracked

 

Yea call the doctor – the patient has had a mind bend

Don’t look now – but yesterday’s where today went

Yea call the doctor – the patient just broke the glass

Tomorrow’s on the upswing – and it’s coming down fast

 

Frequencies all set for green when in came the red

All dirty must be clean was pounding in the head

Stand on your left foot and keep the right one in the air

Reach for the living from the stranded in town square

 

Yea call the doctor – the patience has left the patient

Don’t look now – but yesterday’s where today went

Yea call the doctor – the patient just caught a draft

Tomorrow’s on the upswing – and it’s coming down fast

 

Wrapped like a cigar complete with paper ring

Sings like a sitar when it’s only got one string

Rolls like drummer when the sticks are made of stone

Swings to crescendo and cranks the gramophone

 

Yea call the doctor – the patient just dropped a facelift

Don’t look now – but yesterday’s where today went

Yea call the doctor – the patient just lost the path

Tomorrow’s on the upswing – and it’s coming down fast

 

Check all the tires on those radio flyers

There’s a hundred million wagons rolling west

Lock all the chambers fill them up with lion tamers

We’ve got jungle beasts breathing down our necks

 

Swims like a serpent when the lake’s on fire

Smiles like a person when they build a funeral pyre

Lives for the dying and dances for the dead

Works in the daytime and plots Armageddon in bed

 

Yea call the doctor – the patient just raised the temp

Don’t look now – but yesterday’s where today went

Yea call the doctor – the patient just tried to pass

Tomorrow’s on the upswing – and it’s coming down fast
