PERSPECTIVE

©1994 Dan Scanlan

(Slowly)

Perspective, it's all in perspective.
Those growing years from tot to teen
Those flowing tears, the divorce scene
Perspective. Perspective. It's all in perspective
Nagging fears made night so mean
Working jobs like a machine

Perspective, it's all in perspective.

All that stuff . . . is way back there
All that stuff . . . is way back there
And, oh, I love the grey in your hair. Perspective.

Perspective, it's all in perspective.
Tie-dyed placards high in the street
Signs of hope die incomplete
Perspective. Perspective. It's all in perspective.
Police lines with their rules of Mace
You burned your bra, you made your case

Perspective. It's all in perspective.

All that stuff . . . fell from grace.
All that stuff . . . still in place:
And, oh, I love those lines in your face, Perspective.
