Cindy writes a paragraph
Says time is passing
But the bubbles in her heart
Are everlasting

Yes, she gave her life to art
And who could blame her?

It's pretty major
Fraught with danger
and stuff like that

Oh! Mighty Engine
Of good intention
You're purring softly beside me
Grinding gently beside me
Tapping totally madly
For you

Says the plot is getting strange
Taking on new meaning
And the heroes run away,
'Cause no one stopped them

But she can't control the page
There's people dying
Semicolons crying
And full stops finding fault
Oh, what a dolt

Oh

Oh! Mighty Engine
Of good intention,
You're purring softly beside me
Tapping totally madly
Grinding gently beside me
For you

Cindy writes of kerosene
And broken bottles
Says these troubles were a part of someone's childhood
But she can't get past the point
Where someone's dying

It's pretty minor
A pithy liner would sort it out
But he won't die
He just mucks about
Oh, it's so hard

Now we've broken out the gin,
It helps her thinking
And given in to sin
We're breathing deeply
But something's on her mind, a chapter's stirring...
Her mind is whirling...

And off she trots
To tap her keys to the top

Oh, she's off

Oh! Mighty Engine
Of good intention
You're purring softly beside me
Grinding gently beside me
Tapping totally madly
For you
