Weeping Statues - Graham Parker

    Weeping statues Elvis sightings
    Visitations man struck by lightning
    Everyday someone gets a sign
    It rips apart the fabric of their daily lives
    Is It fear of flying that
    Keeps us rooted to the ground
    Everyone is trying to stay trapped and gagged and bound

    The blind girl saw it the deaf man heard it
    The cripple stood up and walked towards it
    The handless man wrote it down to report it
    The moron changed the words around to distort it
    Ah his hand was steady and
    His mind was clear to think
    But it came out in black and white
    Written In invisible ink

    Weeping statues Elvis sightings
    Stained glass window man struck by lightning
    Every minute someone loses control
    And sees things how they really are
    And not how they're told
    But statues only weep for some
    And Elvis just shows up when he's hungry
    Lightning strikes at everyone
    But only hits the very lucky
