Physics Says

Neil's coming through
The transistor tubes
In the corner of the room where he shakes
The vacuum tube
Over by your shoes
To greet you when you wake
From the myriad of nightmares
He must have felt that he put there,
So the air in the room would be
Nothing he'd be putting on you...
And the television turns on.

Now he's taking all
The photos off the wall
And putting them away in the flues
Above your bed
Howling now instead
Of the things he couldn't say
From a body that was still warm,
That was a burden in your arms;
Physics says it's proved there'd be
Nothing he'd be putting on you...
And the television turns off.

Taxi passes through
And everything that moves
Is silenced in the wake;
But above the blues
Of the electric avenue
His face is taking shape,
Like a thundercloud in Phoenix,
Almost had something to believe in;
Head down and holding his face...
And the television turns on...
