LAURIE ANDERSON lyrics - Steven Weed

LAURIE ANDERSON
"Steven Weed"

Steven Weed
Was asked
By the FBI
To come in
And answer a few questions.
He said it wasn't
Like an interrogation room
At all.
There were no
Bright lights.
But he said
They had it set up
So that there was an agent
On his right
And an agent on his left
And that they alternated
Questions so that he had
To keep turning
His head in order
To answer them.
And he said after a few hours
Of doing this
That no matter
What question they asked
Or what answer he gave
The answer always
Looked
Like
No
No
Oh-no.
No.
