&the soloist strokes the first note

like that!

the night begins

lookit the people in sequined masks

dancing to confuse you

so you can't see past their

little white lies

-

take a good look at the orchestra

because you won't see their faces again

when they lose their sense of

R E A L I T Y

in their

music

-

could you turn

(round & round)

up

the AC? in this ridiculous fairy-tale ballroom?

I think the warm swirls of summery delights

have made their way to your

h e a r t ,

(winter)
