  1. MR. ROBERTSON

From the album DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

A jaunty piece of music juxtaposed on a dark theme that we all have seen on the 11 o'clock news. Perhaps trying to understand why people snap and do such things.

Lyrics

MR. ROBERTSON

Up at six a.m. , have a cup of joe and then
it's time to hit the road.
Punches in at work , his boss is being such a jerk ,
he's ready to explode.

After work , he kicks back a few.
The man who no one really knew.

[chorus]

Mr. Robertson , he's got no home.
Mr. Robertson , he's living all alone.
His wife ignores him , his kids think he's a fool.
Mr. Robertson is about to blow his cool.

Neighbors shook their heads.
Such a quiet man , they said.
Always had clean hands
Walked down Porter road ,
shot a policeman in the toe,
two kids and one old man.

And as he blew away Dr. Lace,
tears were running down his face.

[chorus]

The SWAT team came in and filled the air with lead.
Then came all those talking heads.
The audience applauded and ran to watch the news at Ten.

[announcer]

[chorus] out
