It's just a life story so there's no climax
No more new territory so pull away the imax
In the slot that you sliced through the scene there was no shyness
In the plot that you passed through your teeth there was no pity
No fade in: film begins on a kid in the big city.
And no cut to a costly parade that's for him only
No dissolve to a sliver of grey that's his new lady
where she glows just like grain on the flickering pane of some great movie

It's just a house burning but it's not haunted
It was your heart hurting but not for long kid
In the socket you spin from with ease there is no sticking
From the speakers your fake masterpiece is serenely dribbling
When the air around your chair fills with heat that's the flames licking
beneath the clock on the clean mantelpiece It's got a calm clicking
like a pro at his editing suite takes two weeks stitching up some bad movie
