lyrics

THE STATIONERY CLERK BY TINA MARSHALL

Chorus
Above the run down buildings
light peels from the sky
hes worked there forever
evolution passed him by

verse1
time enters the storeroom
thru the old clock
& the stationery clerk
chops it into 8 equal blocks
with a large paper knife
suddenly the world rocks!..........

Verse2
new advanced creatures
have come to remodel reshape
they penetrate the jungle
of buildings at teabreak
they play with time, command it
break the old rules
his paper knife lies redundant
like a flint tool

repeat chorus

verse3
they call him the missing link
they give him flexitime, a digital clock
but no hands are moving
his mind stops from the shock
hes heard the stationery clerk jokes
you higher life forms say
he picks them up on some radar
evolution took away

verse4
one wild night
youll feel a long shadow fall
across your sleeping body
is it man or animal?
Its the stationery clerk
with his neanderthal thumbs
with a large paper knife
& your time will have come

repeat chorus
