Strange inheritance
a room of your own
strange inheritance
a room of your own
see the acrobats strain hard
see the acrobats strain hard
see how they practice
see how they practice
see how they practice
and fall

however we go
however we dress
"no" is no
"yes" is yes

however we go
however we dress
"no" is no
"yes" is yes

Strange inheritance
a room of your own
strange inheritance
a room of your own
see the acrobats strain hard
see the acrobats strain hard
see how they practice
see how they practice
and fall

    General CommentI transcribed these lyrics the way I heard them (and all the other Ludus lyrics I've submitted, except Mother's Hour and Patient, which were printed on the lyric sheet for the 7" single). I think that "a room of your own" here obviously refers to Virginia Woolf's 1929 feminist essay "A Room Of One's Own" (which, BTW, is the same one where she tells a fictional story about "Shakespeare's Sister"). In this essay, Woolf stated: "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."
