There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Sunset Boulevard Redux



The Mirror Up To Nature*

did you see it on the news
a bunch of people killed
many more wounded
it gave me a chill
in the panic and the fury
with blood falling like rain
our fellow human beings
like abel and cain
like abel and cain
with brimstone hailin'
we break for commercial
and there's sarah palin

(chorus)
hold the mirror up to nature
let it catch the light
all there is to see
is sarah palin's might
never mind the blood
never mind the pain
the little engine that could
is sarah palin's train

they say jesus died
for our collective sins
we were all born dirty
we are the devil's kin
if you're seeking salvation
in the modern era
you just have to listen
to sarah on sarah
she is the way
and she is the light
some say she wouldn't
i think she might
i think she might
such thoughts occur
it's not about you and me
it's all about her

(chorus)
hold the mirror up to nature
let it catch the light
all there is to see
is sarah palin's might
never mind the blood
never mind the pain
the little engine that could
is sarah palin's train

will she run for president
or be a billionaire?
will she touch a nerve
will she go there?
if the heavens open
and death rains down
will sarah get her closeup
before we all drown?

(chorus)
hold the mirror up to nature
let it catch the light
all there is to see
is sarah palin's might
never mind the blood
never mind the pain
the little engine that could
is sarah palin's train


*These lyrics are dedicated to Sarah Palin, but she already knew that
