At A Theater Near You
Lyrics
AT A THEATER NEAR YOU

ivory tower out o' sight
sin and soot color it night
dark clouds whispering shrouds of fate
From Harlem to Bedford Stuy
Oklahoma City Dynamite
it all gets in your face
it was somebody else's body
(and now it's yours)
it was somebody else's baby
(and now it's yours)
big buck bombs, bad charms
armchair philosopher's call to arms
so far away
heavy air haze from another place
dangerous games we play these days
and it's getting late
you don't have to go so far,
you don't have to go... so far.
you don't have to drive your car
as you turn your head
everything said is clear.
what used to be there is here in plain view
Now Showin At a Theater Near You.
downtown's up n uptown's down
no highway's gonna get you out o' town.
there's no easy escape
jungle thick alive with cries
trixie on the corner sellin her lies
to some poor ape.
too close for comfort too close to home
bag lady sleepin naked under the dome
can't take her home but ya
don't wanna leave her alone
All those things you thought you'd never see
All those things you thought there'd never be
well now you're there 'n' it ain't through
Now Showin Now Showin At a Theatre Near You.
all those things you thought you'd never do
all those things you thought were to taboo
lost inside some dream come true...you come to
At a Theatre Near You.
When how much pain I can withstand
becomes the test of how strong a man I am
when all you have to give is gone
and all that's left is your sacrificial lamb
you won't have to go so far
you don't have to drive your car
ya just turn your head
lost inside some dream come true you come to
Now Showin...At a Theatre Near You.
