The Common Denominator

Japanese riflemen sip ceremonial tea
Amidst thunder bolts of silence
Mixing the sacred with science
The cocoa butter sonata
In the background at Camp Grenada
Makes the natives dance and sing
As the camera records everything

He wanna see how they rise and they fall from the highs to the floors tonight

Sweet Scent of magnolia from late 1934
Wafts through the space station floor
Where they keep two of every animal
Everyone’s welcome here
We’ve got a common denominator
For every vulgar fraction
To begin interaction

The American-Americanizer
Never look direct into the light
He wanna see how they rise and they fall from the highs to the floors tonight

The American-Americanizer
Never look direct-out from within
He wanna see how they rise and they fall from the highs to the floors tonight
