    Lyrics

    God never listened to Charlie Parker
    Charlie Parker lived in vain
    Blasphemer, womanizer
    Let a needle numb his brain
    Wash away his monkey music
    Damn his demons, damn his pain

    And what's the point of Albert Einstein
    What do we need Physics for'
    Heresy's his inspiration
    Corrupt and rotten to the core
    Curse his devious mathematics
    Curse his deadly atom war

    there's a message on the wind
    Calling me to glory somewhere
    There are signs too deep for the dumb
    Like perfume in the air
    And when I get to Heaven
    I won't realize that I'm there

    Shakespeare, Isaac Newton
    Small ideas for little boys
    Adding to the senseless chatter
    Adding to the background noise
    Hard to hear my oratory
    Hard to hear my inner voice

    Van Gogh, Botticelli
    Scraping paint onto a board
    Color is the fuel of madness
    That's no way to praise the Lord
    Gray's the color of the pious
    Knelt upon the misery cord

    there's a message on the wind
    Calling me to glory somewhere
    There are signs too deep for the dumb
    Like perfume in the air
    And when I get to Heaven
    I won't realize that I'm there

    I'm familiar with the cover
    I don't need to read the book
    I police the world of action
    Inside's where I can never look
    Got no time to help the worthless
    Lotus-eaters, Mandarins, crooks

    there's a message on the wind
    Calling me to glory somewhere
    There are signs too deep for the dumb
    Like perfume in the air
    And when I get to Heaven
    I won't realize that I'm there
