serious music lyrics – hall & oates

to play to get rich and die baroque is wrong
if you write a song for god, will he sing along?
while rows of robot symphonies read on
is that the way that you want it played?

(m*n*scripted memories)
i can breathe
(sound with no electricity)
i can see concentration lines on the face of serious music

(m*n*scripted memories)
i can breathe
(sound with no electricity)
you know i can see concentration lines
on the face of serious music

you brought a bit of jazz to the concert hall
you won’t hear violins at the darkie’s ball
your rhapsody in blue will outlive us all
i wish i was there the night you played it

(m*n*scripted memories, sound with no electricity)
oh, can’t you see concentration lines
on the face of serious music

(m*n*scripted memories)
notes on page
(sound but no electricity)
oh, can’t you see concentration lines
on the face of serious music

(oh, i can’t see, i can’t hear)
m*n*scripted memories, sound but no electricity
concentration lines on the face of serious music

(i can’t see, i can’t hear)
m*n*scripted memories, sound but no electricity
concentration lines on the face of serious music
