"Meltdown (At Madame Tussaud's)" Lyrics [edit]
by Steve Taylor | from the album Now The Truth Can Be Told - Disc 1
 

Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - the queen is losing face,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - a national disgrace,
Oh, it's the middle of the night at the London shrine,
Could have been the janitor, could have been divine,
Someone said the thermostat never did work,
Now we've got the temperature going berserk.

We got a meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - the queen is losing face,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - a national disgrace,
Celebrities, statesmen, history's elite; they're dripping in the hallways, they're starting to secrete,
They're pouring out the pores, they're shrinking on the spot,
Someone take a photograph, get 'em while they're hot.

Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - the president looks alarmed,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - a general's been disarmed,
They're feverish at Fleet Street,
Story of the year, "Get the Facts: House of Wax Photo Souvenir"
"Shameful," says the Times, "Maybe done by vandals,"
Panic on Wall Street; put your stock in candles.

I thought I heard a ghost say, "Had my hands in my pockets on the judgment day, Nobody told me there's fire in the hole; had the world by the tail but I lost my soul."

Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - the rock & roll hotel,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - they're blending very well,
Elvis and the Beatles have seen a better day; better off to burn out than to melt away,
Dylan may be filling the puddle they designed; is it gonna take a miracle to make up his mind?

Athletes on the floor,
Meltdown - they're running out the door,
Bad boy McEnroe couldn't keep his cool; now he's with the rest of them, wading in the pool,
"Howard Hughes, billionaire," says the written guide...pity that his assets have all been liquefied.

Celebrity status only got in the way,
Had my hands in my pockets on the judgment day,
You can't take it with you,
There's fire in the hole,
Had the world by the tail but I lost my soul.

Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - the queen is losing face,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's - a national disgrace,
Down in the dungeon, the Chamber of Horrors,
Look at all the criminals soften to the cores,
They're mixing with the heads of state, floating down the lane,
Good, bad, there they go down the same drain.

Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's, (well, it really is a pity, you know)
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's, (a lot of bees gave their all for this)
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's,
Meltdown at Madame Tussaud's,
(fade)
