In Due Time


Detective Neptune
will write his play
But first he must
meditate

Detective Neptune Sings in Court


if you could ever catch the criminal
who flew down from upon high
you would find out pretty quickly
god has no alibi

if you brought about the charges
found a witness who could cry
the jury would discover
god has no alibi

not separate from sorrow
not aloof and never shy
still it might surprise you
god has no alibi

something heavy
something light
sometimes darkness
sometimes light
mysterious tremendum
out of here and out of sight
out of sight
out of sight
good night

if you wanted justice, poor you
ain't no answers, only sighs
the baliff sweats upon the bible
god has no alibi

when the choir sings to heaven
their songs all upon high
coming down would be the gavel
god has no alibi

you can visit god in prison
maybe then you'll find out why
for the crime of not existing
god has no alibi
for the crime of not existing
god has no alibi

something heavy
something light
sometimes darkness
sometimes light
mysterious tremendum
out of here and out of sight
out of sight
out of sight
good night

The Play's the Thing


you sit on your throne
with a fish on your fork
and bellow and chortle and hack
a king of the waves
and undersea caves
pray, won't you come back?
