lyrics

Reality is Vinyl
Kent Agee

God’s little finger is a phonograph needle
She put it on the Earth and the Earth went round
The grooves were scratched and the tune kept skipping
But the world kept turning and it made this sound …

The news at eleven, the knock at the door
The sirens in the street, the lovers on the floor
the crying of a baby, someone laughing in the park
the beating of the drums, the whispers in the dark…

Saying “darling I love you”, shouting “everybody run”
“Brother can you spare a dime”, “look out he’s got a gun”
“Go back to where you came from”, “I’d never lie to you”
We can’t go on like this no more, but that’s just what we do

The fire alarm’s clanging, there’s dancing in the hall
Shadows in the bedroom and pounding on the wall
People running nowhere down neon streets of gold
Never looking up, never growing old

Who writes the story, who makes the rules
Tell me why the bad boys always get the pretty girls
And that train in the distance that no-one ever sees
Why’s it always going somewhere we would rather be

The crowd is getting bigger, the chaos is sublime
The music’s getting louder but it’s clearer all the time
We may digitize the future, try tuning every voice
But Reality is vinyl, the truth is in the noise
