about

LKZ wakes, pausing to remember how he got here, and why. He looks to the river bank and, holy balls! A factory stands tall right in front of him. This must be the plastic factory the Dumpster told him about. Home is found already. That journey wasn't so hard. LKZ jumps off the raft and jets to the shore using his humming reed for steady, masterful propulsion. But as he stands on the shore, reality kicks in, and he is awed and sobered by the realization that home is a ghost town now (presumably moved overseas or something, since they are def. still making lots of plastic. The new place is probably bigger and more toxic, but that's another opera). This homecoming is not as he had imagined it, and will only be but another piece in his new identity. He ponders his new reality, and his growing, yet more empowered, loneliness.

lyrics

There stands the proud and lonesome plastic factory
No more does it billow no more does it smoke
They say they've run out of oil
They've run out of effort and toil
Lonesome factory I still love you just the same

The sky was once filled with your blossoming smoke rings
And the Birdsong was drowned by your hammering gears
What a sight to behold
To look back on with pride when I'm old
Lonesome factory I still love you just the same

Now there's a creek that will flow all the way to the ocean
And the meadow stretches as far as I can see
They've torn down the dams
Watched the flowers spring up through the sand
But Lonesome factory I still love you just the same

[kazoo solo!]

There stands the proud and lonesome plastic factory
No more does it billow no more does it smoke
They say they've run out of oil
They've run out of effort and toil
Lonesome factory I still love you just the same

Oh Lonesome factory I still love you just the same
