(Segues into 'Life In the Air Age'...)

 

 

 

Lyrics:

 

Hand me my costume,

Please won't you pass me my mask?

I have appointments 

That I must keep with my past...

Bring on the cabaret, 

We can all have a laugh...

I've made the theatre of the absurd 

At last...

 

Drink up and let's go home...

The demon is on the 'phone...

Heís playing a dialling tone...

So, drink up and lets go home...

 

Orchestrations of a different nature...

Arrangements that I made to end it all...

Years and years of love all turned to paper

Dancing at the old musicians ball.

 

And these beauty secrets 

That I've kept so long

Have slightly faded like my old blue jeans.

But read them now 

Because before too long

They could fall apart at every seam.

 

Play me my music,

Please won't you warm up the band?

It's my performance, 

Although nothing is planned...

Turn on the spotlight 

We can pretend there's a stage...

I'll be your hero only as long as I'm paid.

 

Drink up and let's go home...

The demon is on the 'phone...

Heís playing a dialling tone.

So, drink up and lets go home...

 

Let's go home...
