Tarzan's Wearing BVDs

Morse,Perry

        Where are my eyes?  Where are my eyes?
        Lost is my ability
        to pick out all the subtleties.
        I pledge allegiance to the middle ground.

        Why can't I feel?  Why can't I feel?
        Caught up in the stocks and papers of 
        kissing rooms (I'll tell you later).
        I pledge allegiance to the middle ground.

        Gorilla stalks the fields and lives the sun.
        Gorilla beats his chest and fears no-one.
        Lost in the steaming jungle of railway trains.
        Must I always be the same?
        I had no right to kill the ape.

        How do I love?  How do I love?
        How can I indulge in passion
        when it has fallen from our fashion?
        I pledge allegiance to the middle ground.

        I killed the ape.  I killed the ape.
        I've eaten all my broken words.
        I've lived inside my passive verbs.
        I pledge allegiance to the middle ground.
