90 DEGREES – By Wendy Jack (Copyright 2013)

(1st 4 lines (repeated in outro) = lyrics by Leon Rosselson from his song ‘Palaces of Gold’)

Buttons could be pressed

Rules could be broken

Strings could be pulled

Magic words spoken

The ice cold heart could melt

If the warmth of love could be felt

Whoa whoa

But we’re pawns in our own doom

Whoa whoa

On a chessboard of fiscal moves

Meet me at 90 degrees

We’re sailing through 90 degrees

Franklin is getting relief

We’re sailing through 90

And the seas will rise – as the tears fall from our eyes

And will Mr Grey shave before going to work today – Ah

We’ll consume til we’re consumed

The cookie monster leads us to our doom

But there’s time to change the rules

Teach the right hand to play a left hand tune

We’re sailing through 90 degrees

Franklin is getting relief

We’re sailing through 90 degrees

We’re sailing through 90

And the seas will rise – as the tears fall from our eyes

But buttons could be pressed

Rules could be broken

Strings could be pulled

Magic words spoken

The ice cold heart could melt

If the motive wasn’t wealth
