Hidden Frequency (for Hedy Lamarr) ~ words & music by Pietra Wexstun ~ Hedy was a queen Who graced the silver screen Never would have guessed The knowledge she possessed Gliding into rooms Trailing rare perfumes All would stop and stare Her words would fill the air But who cared what was said Or what was in her head Marveling at the shapes Those lovely lips would make This woman with a past Lonely and miscast Locked in a castle gray Where generals came to stay In another life A rich man's teenage wife She smiled and sipped champagne But a steel-trap brain Captured every word Of secret plans she heard And to Hollywood she came To studios and fame Beautiful and bored Worshipped and ignored While others drank and swam She drew diagrams Spectrum-hopping plans To foil torpedo jams A scheme to win the war Like a player piano score Hidden frequencies New Technologies TV, radio, Cell phone signal flow From this work would grow But few would ever know Hedy was a queen Who graced the silver screen Never would have guessed The knowledge she possessed * * * *
