    Is it a general admonishment to be aware that there might be traps around, or do you think that Democrats are falling into a specific trap?

    You take from your backpack the glass phial containing the sparkling dust and sprinkle it on the stone slab. Slowly the stone slab starts to rise into the air

      God's Away On Business - Tom Waits

      I'd sell your heart to the junkman, baby
      For a buck, for a buck
      If you're looking for someone to pull you out of that ditch
      You're out of luck, you're out of luck

      Ship is sinking
      The ship is sinking
      The ship is sinking

      There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room
      The poor, the lame, the blind
      Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
      Killers, thieves, and lawyers

      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business
      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business

      Digging up the dead with a shovel and a pick
      It's a job, it's a job
      Bloody moon rising with a plague and a flood
      Join the mob, join the mob
      It's all over, it's all over
      It's all over

      There's a leak, there's a leak in the boiler room
      The poor, the lame, the blind
      Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
      Killers, thieves, and lawyers

      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business
      God's away, God's away on business, business

      Goddamn, there's always such a big temptation
      To be good, to be good
      There's always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby
      It's a deal, it's a deal

      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business
      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business

      I narrow my eyes like a coin slot, baby
      Let her ring, let her ring

      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business
      God's away, God's away
      God's away on business, business

      There’s always free cheddar in a mousetrap, baby
