Commissioning A Symphony In C  (Album Version)

Commissioning A Symphony In C (Album Version)

Cake

So you'll be an Austrian nobleman
Commissioning a symphony in see
Which defies all earthly descriptions
You'll be commissioning a symphony in see

With money you squeeze from the peasants
To your nephew you can give it as a present
This magnificent symphony in see
You'll be commissioning a symphony in see

Completely filling the palace concert hall
It's warm and golden like an oven that's wide open
It has a melody both happy and sad
Built on victorious known triads

You enter the room with great caution
Though no-one in the hall is even watching
They are transfixed, they are forgetting just to breathe
They are so taken by your symphony in see

You are sitting there thinking your thoughts
They are not about what is but what is not
You are sitting there breathing in your breath
You are seldom breathing life but mostly death

So you'll be an Austrian nobleman
Commissioning a symphony in see
Which defies all earthly descriptions
You'll be commissioning a symphony in see
