Rosetta Stone

where is my rosetta stone
i checked the cradle
and the temple and the grave
i can't pick up the phone
i wouldn't know what to say
how 'bout hello
no - that would never do
could be a politician
could be you
what if i can't tell the difference
when the night is through
won't you please please please
leave a message for me

where is my rosetta stone
i checked the dryer
and the washing machine
just a bunch of spinning bodies
i don't know what they mean
a long time ago
in a land far far away
someone hoped that i would
understand her today
but time has scarred me
and i can hardly
recognize her face
won't you please please please
read her message to me

dear john
i'm leaving
the past behind
meet me in the bathroom
with a bottle of wine

dear jane
i need you
to put me down
leave me in the bedroom
for a night on the town

where is my rosetta stone
it's on the highway somewhere
close the door and drive
i woke up before noon today
and i'm feeling alive
are you ready to go
no - i'm feelin' a bit blue
could be i'm dying
and it could be the flu
i can't read this prescription
and i don't know what to do
it's just a message in a bottle
another message in a bottle

where is my rosetta stone
an ancient girl is calling
someone answer please
