lyrics

The saxophone lies in its case
Accumulating rust
Its keys are stuck down in their place
I open up the box

At moments when I'm thunderstruck
But generally the locks
Are locked and I have no great luck

You see the problem is exposed
The day to day – the maintenance
Just can't compare to happenstance
I'll leave the hammer – take the lance

The love I have so patiently
It sits inside its chest
The key to which is memory
But that is hard to see

Cause only with adrenaline
Does memory agree
And even then it's with chagrin

You see the problem is exposed
The day to day – the maintenance
Just can't compare to happenstance
I'll leave the hammer – take the lance

The wits I have they frighten me
They have capacity
But doubt is such a little thing
It's smaller than a flea

And that infernal word ahead
It spells out L-E-E
How will I teach what I've read?

You see the problem is exposed
The day to day – the maintenance
Just can't compare to happenstance
I'll leave the hammer – take the lance
