Attrition
The Jeapordy Maze


Pendulum Turns


She fiddles while Rome burns
Never learns
She dines while the pendulum turns
Forgets what she earns.

She travels in the back of a black car
Goes so far
She went to Sarajevo
They didn't want to know though.

She dines on white wine
No time
For crying on white lines
Stress Lines.
She dances on stone floors
Forget the war
They call her Marie
She needs the law.

She fiddles while Rome burns
She dines while the pendulum turns.

I'll see you in time
I'll meet you
Greet you in '89
I'll see you in Mexico
Don't go there
Heads roll.
Take me to the '45
Who smiles at war trials
Who lies
When their hands are burned
When the pendulum turns
They call me roundhead
When the pendulum turns
They call me deathshead
When the pendulum turns.
