Curtain Call

ebony beauty
pass this shade
the looking glass relects
then a voice calls me back,
"this is just circumstance it is not
personal", oh no it never is.
then you ram your hand in your bag
for a little friendly substance

By the time you’re 25
they will say, "you’ve gone and blown it".
By the time you’re 35, I must confide,
you will have blown them all
Right on cue just act surprised
when they invite you to take
your curtain call
you climbed China’s wall
your
curtain call

I have done what I’ve done
and it has the ultimate consequence
then a voice calls me back,
"this is not business, no,
its more like spiritual"
is that what it is
Then you ram your hand in your bag
for a little protection

By the time you’re 25
they will say, "you’ve gona and blown it."
By the time you’re 35, I must confide,
you will have blown them all
Right on cue just act surprised
when they invite you to take
your curtain call
you climbed China’s wall
your curtain call

ebony beauty
pass this shade
the looking glass reflects
