about

A postmodern pop song, "Statues" is a fresh 2010 remake of the Zru Vogue 1983 living room demo. Lyrically inspired by dada montage artist Max Ernst and readymade innovator Marcel Duchamp, musically "Statues (Wait For Me)" has a contemporary Euro-lounge-pop feel.

lyrics

Lyrics:


Find the faces of the statues in the hall
See them come to life and crawl
Down the stairway to the pool beside the gym
Slide in for a midnight swim

See the skeletons in closets by the door
Open your eyes and explore
Won’t you please invite them over for some tea
You know their hearts and minds are free

Mona Lisa weeps beneath a moonlit sky
Marcel Duchamp discovers why
Some say it’s because she has a hot behind
Her mustache has made her blind

As the rooster eyes the axe upon the wall
Ancient echoes distant call
Easter Island heads are rolling on the floor
Laughter rings forevermore

Wait for me
Look for me
Stay with me
Eternally

Wait for me
Look for me
See though me
Completely

Wait for me (overseeing)
Look for me (overhearing)
Stay with me (overlooking)
Eternally
--
Lyrics ©1983 Andrew L. Jackson
