EINSTEIN’s VIOLIN

Appears on

Written by Doug Harvey

American Delirium

The river is risin’ and the rain is fallin’ down
The river is risin’ and the rain is fallin’ down
There’s a woman on the roof in a dinner gown
Holdin’ on tight so she won’t drown
The river is risin’ and the rain is fallin’ down

Things ‘round here have gone from bad to worse
Things ‘round here have gone from bad to worse
It’s not black magic or an evil curse
It’s just the way of the universe
Things ‘round here have gone from bad to worse

Einstein is playing his violin
The king is counting angels on the head of a pin
Blame it all on original sin
But it won’t do much about the fix we’re in
Somebody slipped us a Mickey Finn
Then they pulled the firing pin
There’s a melody playing above the din
It’s the music of Einstein’s violin

One of these days it’s all gonna wash away
One of these days it’s all gonna wash away
We’ll all go back to where we come from
On the train to kingdom come
One of these days it’s all gonna wash away

Energy equals mass times the speed of light
(times the speed of light)
Energy equals mass times the speed of light
(times the speed of light)
It’s two minutes to midnight
And 451 degrees Farenheit
Energy equals mass times the speed of light
(times the speed of light)

Solo

Repeat bridge

The river is risin’ and the rain is fallin’ down
The river is risin’ and the rain is fallin’ down
