(let’s all help solve) Gary’s Problem

from by Cultural Amnesia

lyrics

Gary’s holed up in his bedroom
won’t come out for food or TV
sometimes staring out the window
sometimes lying on the carpet
mum’s been cooking all his favourites
knows it won’t make any difference
as he smells the apple crumble
Gary chants his special words:

Packet router upload vector comms-link failure method acting stats analysis Schwarzschild radius I-beam girder shock and awe

Let’s all help solve Gary’s problem

Gary’s hanging with his mates
down the park and near the swings
there’s not much to do each evening
no one’s got much left to say
Gary slips into the shadows
fumbles for his mobile phone
low on credit, it don’t matter
time enough to speak these words:

Space-time metric mango chutney Kevlar lining postindustrial system error motor neuron self-assembling nanobots

[Chorus]

Gary’s gone to see the specialist
time to have a little chat
Gary keeps his features frozen
no one knows what’s in his head
as the voice drones on and on
Gary eyes some scattered papers
folders, reports and a letter
where he reads familiar words:

Packet router upload vector comms-link failure method acting stats analysis Schwarzschild radius I-beam girder shock and awe stats
