Gravity

Eloise has come unglued
She sits and stares out the window
Susan has her problems too
She hides her head in the pillow
Amanda was concerned but now she's finally learned
The doctor says she's doing quite exceptionally
Joan used to be unsure but she's not anymore
She's sure that nothing can be done so she turns on the TV

Tony's got a new guru
Taken a vow of silence
Bob's discovered religion too
Hopes it will temper his violence
John used to be alarmed but he's become more calm
The medication has begun to take effect
And as the days go by you'll come to realize
Everything is as you might expect when

Chorus: Gravity has lost its pull
When gravity has lost its pull
When gravity has lost its pull
When gravity has lost its pull
Its pull

All the potential philosopher kings
Switch to political science
So don't expect much of anything
Except unholy alliances
And as the days go by you'll come to realize
Everything is as you might surmise when

Chorus

...and Eloise has come unglued.
