Change


If i must talk again
then we must change the subject
if i must sing again,
we must change the lyrics
if i must dance again,
then you must change yous beat

free me from your archaic songs,
your rotating world.
That i may mount on eagle wings and...

If i must love again,
the you must change your definition of it.
Until then,
a madman i shall remain to you

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
