Closed Circuits (for Voice and Amplified Mic Stand) - Laurie Anderson

Well I know who you are, baby.
I've seen you go into that meditative state.
You're the snake charmer, baby.
And you're also the snake.
You're a closed circuit, baby.
You've got the answers in the palms of your hands.

Well I saw a blind Judge
And he said: I know who you are
And I said: Who?
And he said: You're a closed circuit, baby.
He said: The world is divided into two kinds of things.
There's luck, and there's the law.
There's a knock on wood that says: IT MIGHT.
And there's the long arm of the law that says: IT'S RIGHT.
And it's a tricky balancing act between the two because both are equally true.
'Cause might makes right
And anything could happen. Che sarà sarà. Am I right?

Who? Do. Who? do.
Who do you love?

Well I saw a couple of hula dancers just hula-ing down the street.
And they said: Well I wonder which way the tide is gonna roll tonight?
And I said: Hey hold up hula dancers! You know the tide's gonna roll out
And then it's gonna roll right back in again.
'Cause it's a closed circuit, baby. We got rules for that kind of thing.
And you know the moon is so bright tonight.

Who? Do. Who? Do.
And don't think I haven't seen all those blind A-rabs around. I've seen 'em around.
And I've watched them charm that oil right out of the ground.
Long black streams of that dark electric light.
And they said: One day the sun went down and it went way down, into the ground.
And three thousand years go by and we pump it right back up again.
'Cause it's a closed circuit, baby.
We can change the dark into the light and vice versa.

Well I know who you are, baby.
I've watched you count yourself to sleep.
You're the shepherd, baby.
And you're also one, two, three hundred sheep. I've watched you fall asleep.

Well I was up real late last night.
Must have just dropped off to sleep.
'Cause I saw you were crying, baby.
You were crying in your sleep.
You're the snake charmer, baby. And you're also a very long snake.
You're a closed circuit, baby.
You've got the answers in the palms of your hands.
