lyrics

The hand of God is known to provide for all it's made,
And to test those suckers out.
But the common curses heard quite daily on the streets,
Come from common peoples' mouths.
And I can't claim that the source will do much to ease my nerves,
When a crocodile's about.
'Cus now and then I'm faced with a ghastly non-ideal,
And I can't contain my zeal:

Red alert, let's desert,
Dive head-first into the cotton,
Push the pain, and the malaise to another day.
Maybe I in different times
Would have required some more convincing,
But now I'm by your side,
Who cares what's wrong or right?

How many times must I be forced to defend myself
From the toxins in this sting?
Or see the safe I used to put all my favorites in
Filled up with old and broken things?
'Cus now and then there's a ghost with its back against my back
That I can't persuade to leave,
In times like these when I'm finally resigned to face the day,
I'm a million miles away.

How many times must I be forced to defend myself
From a laser shot from space?
'Cus now and then all the words that I built myself around
Seem to change the way they sound.

I got a lot on my mind.
