"Jersey-based home-recording pioneer R. Stevie Moore is a shame-fully underappreciated genius, glee-fully reconstructuring the whole of Western popular music into a richly idiosyncratic body of work that combines low-tech D.I.Y. resource-fulness with an awesome mastery of pop structure." - Harold DeMuir

Under the light it looks so splendid
the time is right for us to send it
under the light it shines so bright

it's in my heartbeat, time to go onstage
start beat within the drum cage
under the light

under the light it can't be described
it's very right that i'd been prescribed
the lights of spot shine down so hot

it's in the program, try to find my name
no ma'am, printer is to blame
under the light

now the emcee looks at me with a smile
i nervously try to see crowded aisles
they're crowded tight
now there's applause with a pause not so sure
i stopped because santa claus is a viewer

under the light back to the artwork
we do it right, me and the smart turk
we do it well so go to hell

it's in my heartbeat sorry but it's true
brain heat brings hate for you few

under the light
