 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

Sylvia was struck by lightning 
While reading in bed one night 
She'd left the window open
And the storm caught her by surprise
For days she lay as still as stone 
Hooked to pumps and tubes
Then out her window the street lights flashed 
And at last a finger moved

She awoke to a cacophony of electric and radio waves
Pulsing rays of energy falling from outer space

High in swaying towers
Down in basements full of dust
She could not escape the static
Or the sixty-cycle hum
She wore dark-tinted spectacles 
Several fur-lined capes
Three pairs of velvet gloves
A veil of dotted swiss

But all the earth's vibrations 
Still pounded through her ears
So she packed a steamer trunk 
And flew a prop plane to Belize

From there a log raft took her 
Over raging waterfalls
Deep within uncharted jungle 
Where giant caterpillars crawl
They spun their silk around her 
A cocoon beneath the trees
And still she hangs there swaying
Deep within the dripping leaves

Keeping time with every rumble 
Every quiver of the earth
And she slowly changes shape 
With the turning of the world
