Towers tumbled - all the buildings crumbled Volcanoes rumbled Insurance salesman mumbled Ballerians bumbled - all the heroes stumbled Politicians fumbled
Suddenly a hand held out - take a ticket tout It was a chart - it was a card And those are your instructions And what he offered in his hand It was a diagram - master plan A secret plan for your deduction
Crystals shatter - all the singers chatter While the drums just clatter Your silken raiment's tatter While all the poets chatter - "Oh, it doesn't matter" Please ignore the latter Settle back you're growing fatter Oh you know you've got no conception Well, you're far out in space I see you trying to trace a design Of your heart on the stars
On the open ocean - like an open book See the feeble fumble for a better look See the sheep shake In their sleep wake Not an earthquake Or a death wake
And all the while - through the testing and the trials She smiles Eternity smiles..
