    This is a great track. I really like the mood at the, "is it like Pyramus?" part.

    I did not realize he wrote songs for The Muppet Movie - from an interview with The Guardian: "Even if I'm writing about the Muppets, I'm putting my spin on things," he says. "One song in particular, Lazy Projector, is about selective memory, deciding how we remember a certain relationship – who's putting that story together, who's omitting certain things. I had this song I wrote for Kermit about why the Muppets broke up, and I added [Lazy Projector] on to give the song a lift at the end." He smiles faintly. "If it's a slight non sequitur, that's OK with me. I'm not a linear songwriter."

    Actually the first minute does it for me. Either way, lovely song - probably my favorite off the album so far.

    I'm caught between this one, Fatal Shore, and Hole in the Ocean Floor as my favorite from this album. I love how he uses recurring themes in his music and lyrics ("time's a crooked bow") I also sense a connection between the concept of a "Lazy Projector" and a "Masterfade". Does anyone know what is said/sung at the beginning or where it is from? Something about the passage being narrow?
