Lyrics

If you were born about nineteen-fifty seven                    
Consider this song as your own
Growing up playing cowboys and Indians
Amid cold wars and landings on the Moon
Metallic blue Mercury convertible
Realistic coon-skin cap
We walked with our arms locked together
A force nobody could stop
We laughed at Lucy and Ric
The Magic Kingdom at our fingertips
 And we don’t deny                              
It took a puff from the hookah                                               
To exhale change from our breath
          
 It was such a philanthropist’s daydream
Peddling on beggars wheels
Recanting the voice of neurosis
Reciting an Isakov song
Damn these intrusions
I am loving these scones
I am buoyant and it’s natural
Doing this alone
               
The surgery was cruel and intrusive
It was something that I needed quick
The adjustments weren’t working
The impulses were strong
I faced it alone
 
The missionaries were stowing their luggage
Gathered in prayer on the tarmac
 I guess that I was looking needy
As one of them came over to talk
 He said “Come with us into the jungle,
 That is where you are needed the most
 Some of us are bound
Suffering in silence,
Among the minions’ of God 
And, I wish I had never ignored them
As I started out on my business trip
I am going to Hong Kong
Or is it to Tokyo
I’m out over the ocean
I’ve realized I was wrong
 
The surgery was cruel and intrusive
It was something that I needed quick
The adjustments weren’t working
The impulses were strong
I faced it alone
I am happy alone                      
I am luckier alone
Reminiscing in the silence                                
I am  loving your scones                                           
Among the minions of God                    
Among the minions of God                        
Superstitious and defiant
Consciousness bent
Intellectually stunted
Emotionally complex
Unabashedly profane
Without logical defense
Incorrigibly corrupted                  
Since nineteen-fifty-seven
