Two-Headed Boy Lyrics

Two-headed boy
All floating in glass
The sun it is past
Now it's blacker than black
I can hear as you tap on your jar
I am listening to hear where you are
I am listening to hear where you are

Two-headed boy
Put on Sunday shoes
And dance round...

    Ok, this is my own take on the song. During the holocaust, prisoners in the camp hid a needle in the heart of a deceased two-headed boy that had been preserved in a jar. This needle served as a radio antenna that provided them a bit of music as they waited to die.
